Veteran screen goddess Jane Fonda has hit out at claims she's been traumatised by three divorces, insisting the experience has left her with a loyal, supportive friend - her third ex-husband Ted Turner.

The BARBARELLA star, 67, says she separated from media mogul Turner because he had bad communication skills, but she believes their relationship after their divorce has allowed him to become the companion she needed during their marriage.

She explains, "He's one of the good guys. He knows he's screwed up. He's just no good at talking about himself or listening to others. He wants to do better, he really does bless his heart, but it's just very hard."
