Jane Fonda is opening up about her private life!

The film icon, who has earned numerous accolades for accomplishments as an actress, activist, and former fashion model, recently reflected on how her intimate life has evolved over the years.

During an appearance on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM radio show, "Andy Cohen Live," the New York City native revealed what her sex life looked like at 84 and why she believed it improved with time.

Jane Fonda Says Sex For Women Gets Better With Age

When speaking her mind, Fonda is not afraid to be blunt with her words, especially when it comes to what happens between the sheets.

As a Hollywood veteran, the "Barefoot In The Park" star knows how to maintain her privacy by shutting down inappropriate questions from the media without leaving a negative impression.

From her recent interview, Cohen shared a snippet on YouTube, the two-time Academy Award winner became tight-lipped when the show's host asked her to "characterize" her current sex life.

Although the "Walk on the Wild Side" actress ignored the question by simply describing her intimate history as "private and solo," the 84-year-old was happy to answer Cohen's following query.

The "Watch What Happens Live!" host asked for the Primetime Emmy Award winner's thoughts on sex at an older age, inquiring if people became "better at sex" or if "they lean into bad habits" as they got older.

This question seemed to please the older entertainer, who described it as a "wonderful" topic to think about before launching into an explanation using her experiences as a woman.

"I think I got better. Women, I think, tend to get better because they lose their fear of saying what they need," the 84-year-old said, noting that women did not enjoy telling their partners what to do in bed.

However, as they age, this insecurity fades away as women become bolder in demanding what they want from their lovers.

Fonda's expertise in the subject may come from her knowledge as a three-time divorcee. The "Prime Time" author first tied the knot to Roger Vadim from 1965 to 1973 before hitting it off with Tom Hayden.

Her second marriage lasted from 1973 to 1990, while her third trip down the altar with Ted Turner in 1991 ended in 2001.

On the bright side, the Hollywood icon did not seem bothered about love or her age. As shared by The Blast, the "Our Souls at Night" star addressed what it felt like to be closer to death's door.

While promoting her Netflix show, "Grace and Frankie," with co-star Lily Tomlin, the "My Life So Far" author confessed that she was "super-conscious" about dying.

However, the former model stated that leaving this world did not bother her as much as knowing that her aging body was basically not hers.

According to Fonda, the only part that belonged to her was from her neck upwards; nonetheless, the "Monster-in-Law" actress felt grateful to be alive with the strength to pursue her career. In the entertainer's words:

"Who cares if I don’t have my old joints? And I can’t ski or bike or run anymore? Enh. You know, you can be really old at 60, and you can be really young at 85."

In the Netflix comedy, the actress and Tomlin play the titular characters, whose longtime rivalry came to a halt after discovering that their husbands [played by Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen] were in a relationship.

The Golden Globe Award Winner Showed Off Her Fitness Routine At 83

Last year, The Blast reported that the Honorary Palme d'Or recipient gave fans a glimpse at the fitness routine that kept her body toned at 83 years old.

Taking to Instagram, the "Barbarella" actress shared two snaps of herself rocking a white top designed with the slogan "Fire Drill Friday" written in an array of colors.

The Hollywood veteran flaunted her flat stomach by knotting the ends of her top, giving fans a good view of her tiny waistline and black flare yoga pants.

In the images, the "Book Club" maintained her posture while tugging on resistance bands and revealed in the post's caption that the pictures were taken from her home gym.
