Ailing Fonda to miss premiere of documentary on Vadim

Updated:
PARIS (AP) _ Jane Fonda canceled plans to attend a premiere of a documentary about her former husband Roger Vadim on Monday because of hip and back problems that prompted her to seek treatment at a Paris hospital.

Flying to France had left Fonda with hip and back pain, said Karine Lyons, a spokeswoman for the French Riviera resort of Saint-Tropez, where the screening was to be held Monday night.

Fonda had X-rays at a Paris hospital Monday morning, Lyons said. She said Fonda had previously undergone a hip operation.

The showing of the 90-minute documentary, ``Vadim, this billionaire of happiness,'' was to go ahead as planned. Fonda may attend a second showing in Paris on Tuesday, Lyons said.

Fonda, 67, was married to the French director from 1965 to 1973. He died in 2000.

Vadim directed Fonda in his 1968 sci-fi sexual spoof ``Barbarella.''
