While writing on her blog, the 71-year-old actress said that Jack was a frequent visitor to her Santa Barbara, California home and confesses she never really understood him. She even wondered if Jackson sought to seduce her.
"I couldn't pretend to understand him. There were so many complicated signals. Did he want me to be his 'older women' friend? He gravitated to older women. For solace? ...Did he want me to teach him the ropes? I never could quite figure it out," the Daily Express quoted her as saying.
Recalling an incident, Fonda said once she showed him the burial spot she had prepared for herself and was stunned to see the 'Thriller" hitmaker"s reaction. "He shrieked and bent over and said, 'No, no, no!' 'What''s the matter,' I asked. 'Don't ever talk about your dying. Don't ever think about it,"" she said.
Fonda is relieved that Jackson's death was probably painless, adding, "I like the fact that it was quick. Massive heart attacks that you don't recover from are quick. You don't know what hit you. That's probably the kindest death for Michael."
