Jane Fonda has revealed that she got drunk on vodka before filming the iconic nude scene in Barbarella. The star claimed to be terrified of stripping off in front of the crew, but went along with the act as her husband at the time, Roger Vadim, insisted that she starred in the movie. In the opening scene of the film, Jane can be seen laying naked on a glass plate as it to create the illusion she was spiraling through space. Now, at years-old, the mother-of-three has opened up on the scene in her new documentary Fonda In Five Acts. Jane then went on to reveal that despite filming the scene, and getting the awkward moment over and done with, she then found out it had to be re-shot because a bat flew into shot. Chatting to CNN, Jane revealed just how important the moment was for her and how she never thought she would live to see something like it.
