Jane Fonda said on Friday that Jennifer Lopez “never apologized” for cutting her eyebrow during a slapping scene in the movie “Monster-in-Law.”
“Well, okay, the thing that comes to mind right away is, we have a slapping scene,” Fonda told Drew Barrymore in a segment on her talk show in which she and Lily Tomlin were discussing their most iconic roles.
She continued, “I slap her, she slaps me, I slap her. Well, Jennifer — as per Jennifer — she had this enormous diamond ring, and so, when she slapped me one of the times, it cut open across my eye, my eyebrow. You know, she’s never apologized.”
Audience members gasped and burst into laughter as Barrymore cupped her hands over her mouth in surprise before turning to another topic.
It wasn’t clear whether she was kidding. Fox News Digital has reached out to Fonda and Lopez’s reps for comment.
In the 2005 romantic comedy, Fonda plays Viola, the reluctant soon-to-be mother-in-law of Charlie (Lopez). In the scene Fonda is referencing, Charlie slaps her after seeing that Viola is wearing a white dress on her wedding day.
Charlie also immediately apologizes in the scene, prompting Viola to chastise her by saying, “You don’t go and slap somebody and then apologize. Get some backbone!” She then slapped her back, and then a back-and-forth ensued.
In 2019, Lopez called working with Fonda a “highlight” of her career and said it was one of the most “fun” scenes she’s ever done.
