Say What? Barbarella's Daughter Speaks

Say What? Barbarella's Daughter Speaks


“Before that, nobody had seen on screen any space for women to be sexual or to own their sexuality. The shock was that here were women doing what we’ve all seen men do. This was exploding the myth that if a woman was consummate in her sexuality, then she must be a slut.”


— Vanessa Vadim on mother Jane Fonda's starring role in the camp classic Barbarella, directed by her late father Roger Vadim. Besides being the daughter of celebrities, Vadim is an eco-advice columnist, a single mother, a documentary filmmaker and an organic farmer. She’s also a fan of glass dildos and cucumbers as eco-friendly sex toys.

With comments like those, Vanessa reveals how very very little she knows of films. I'm guessing she's never heard of Mae West or any of the very sexy film stars that came before oh, maybe 1980? Barbarella was a cartoon masquerading as a movie, and Jane Fonda was truly awful in it.
