See Ted Date Jane: Jane Fonda says her current beau, cable king Ted Turner, wasted no time phoning her up after reading last year about her breakup with husband Tom Hayden. “He wanted to know if I was available to date,” Fonda said in the June 11 issue of People magazine. “I think I said I wasn’t feeling so hot, that he was an interesting guy, too, but I wasn’t feeling peppy.” Now that she’s feeling peppier, Fonda says the relationship with Turner “is a natural,” even though both claim to be dating other people, too. Turner, the winner of the America’s Cup in 1977, says he works out more now that he dates the actress-video exercise queen. And Fonda occasionally participates in some of Turner’s favorite hobbies--fly fishing and turkey hunting.
