Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan

The decision to cast Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan was a controversial one. Reagan is a conservative hero while good ole Hanoi Jane is, well, not. However, you can’t deny the resemblance and in this clip from Lee Daniels’ The Butler, Fonda says, “I happen to know that she’s not unhappy that I’m playing her.” In the short clip from the movie, we see Fonda as Reagan inviting the film’s titular butler (played by Forest Whitaker) to a state dinner.
