Early on, she was an assumed product of nepotism — the daughter of Henry Fonda , cast often for her looks and repeatedly hired for flimsy sex comedies. Yet she was far more interesting than that. In the years that followed, she served as a restless muse to an oppressive European filmmaker, before transforming into a fully autonomous movie star of unparalleled beauty and screen presence.

Barbarella is a science fiction film directed by Roger Vadim based on the comic series of the same name by Jean-Claude Forest. The film stars Jane Fonda as Barbarella, a space-traveler and representative of the United Earth government sent to find scientist Durand Durand, who has created a weapon that could destroy humanity. As a director who expressed an interest in comics and science fiction, Vadim was hired to direct Barbarella after producer Dino De Laurentiis purchased the film rights to the comic series. Vadim attempted to cast several actors in the title role including Virna Lisi , Brigitte Bardot , and Sophia Loren before choosing his then-wife, Fonda.
