Jane Fonda was so smitten with Maryland's capital city that state tourism officials have taken to calling her "Annapolis' newest ambassador. " The actress was walking the cobblestone streets of Annapolis the other day to film a cameo in the movie “Better Living Through Chemistry," a shoot that's been underway there for a number of weeks. But unlike stars who parachute in and zip out with barely a look around, Fonda was into Annapolis, shooting tons of pictures of the historical vistas and then, later devoting a blog post to the town.

Ted Turner and Jane Fonda have made a comeback in the Packwood controversy -- this time siding with the 28 women who have accused the senator with sexual harassment.In two checks drawn on their individual accounts, Mr. Turner and Ms. Fonda gave $1,000 each to the legal fund for Bob Packwood's accusers, most of whom worked in his Senate office or on his campaigns."The contribution speaks for itself and is a personal decision," Michael Oglesby, a spokesman for the celebrity couple, said Tuesday.

Depending on your taste for family voyeurism, you will find a new cable profile of actor Henry Fonda tonight either mostly satisfying or a disappointment. For the host of "Fonda on Fonda," at 8 o'clock on TNT, is daughter Jane Fonda, who lends an intriguing intimacy to a hugely flattering -- are you surprised? -- portrayal of a star who said he felt he was "pretty restricted to a good old American type."Happily, the kin connection is kept mostly under control until quite late in the hourlong show.

There's a moment in the soon-to-arrive youth anthem "Bodies, Rest & Motion" when Nick, footloose and fancy-dead, stops at a gas station late at night after a fruitless search for his past (and possibly, therefore, his future) and notices an easy rider on a motorcycle refueling, heavy with purpose.It's a majestic movie moment, because it says so much about generations heading in opposite directions without making much contact. It's made all the more poignant by the fact that one of the things Nick is fleeing is his girlfriend, Beth, who is played by Bridget Fonda, the avatar of "Generation X," that group of disaffected twentysomethings attracting so much media attention of late.

The agreement is aimed at expanding opportunities and cutting costs at the two companies that make disposable food packaging.

ATLANTA -- The sign on the elevator that runs from the ground level of Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium to the third floor, where the auxiliary press box is located for the National League Championship Series, clearly reads "Maximum capacity: 12 Passengers -- Strictly Enforced."And, most of the time that rule is strictly enforced. That is, unless the Braves owner, Ted Turner, and his fiancee, Jane Fonda, want to be the 13th and 14th people to board.So they hopped aboard the elevator around 2:15 p.m., and you guessed it: The elevator stalled, with the former "Mouth of the South," and his fitness queen, adorned in tomahawk earrings and a clingy black jump suit, sweating it out with the huddled masses.

Sweetheart Holdings Inc. said yesterday that it lost $7 million in its second quarter, in part because of changes to its manufacturing structure and in part because of worsening business conditions. The Owings Mills-based maker of disposable products such as plates and cups announced in November that it was closing several out-of-state manufacturing facilities, laying off nearly 200 workers and hiring an equal number at its Baltimore County location. The move is expected to save the company about $13 million a year, but for now it is costing the company in costs associated with the move and manufacturing inefficiencies during the transition period.

Jane Fonda's last great performance - and one of the last before she retired - was as an alcoholic in Sidney Lumet's The Morning After in 1986. In Georgia Rule, the second movie in her highly dubious comeback, she does an about-face on her persona and her talent, playing a teetotaler and, what's worse, a pious bore. As Georgia, a righteous small-town matriarch, Fonda gets to embody clannish virtues already a feature of the next presidential campaign. Georgia Rule (Universal Pictures) Starring Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan, Felicity Huffman.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.-- --The seven-letter word keeps resurfacing in the life and baseball times of Aubrey Huff. Without. Huff, the Orioles' new middle-of-the-lineup slugger, graduated from a Texas high school without being drafted and without getting any serious looks from Division I colleges. In his first seven seasons in the majors, Huff hit 141 homers without fanfare because he played primarily in the obscurity of Tampa Bay, a place without baseball tradition, without a consistent fan base.

9 TO 5 / / 20th Century Fox / $19.98 Certainly you will remember the clothes. The hemlines, the shoes, the poofy shoulders, the poofy hair. The year, 1980, will come rushing back at you in the fashions worn by stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton, who clearly had a rollicking good time making this working-girl movie 25 years ago. 9 to 5 is the story of three women trapped in "the pink-collar ghetto" of a corporation. They form a reluctant alliance to get their "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigoted" boss, played by Dabney Coleman.

My Life So Far By Jane Fonda. Random House, 599 pages. $26.95. Anyone old enough to remember the vitriol directed at Jane Fonda during the '60s and '70s -- some of it brought on by her own foolishness; most of it deeply ugly; none of it having anything to do with her abilities as an actress -- might be loath to add to the criticism. This is why it gives me no pleasure to report that her new autobiography, My Life So Far, is a very bad book. Forgoing the "and then I starred in ..." model of celebrity memoir, Fonda has chosen to write her story as a piece of self-examination, to find the narrative threads in her life.

Jane Fonda coming back to the screen after a decade-and-a-half absence in Monster-in-Law is like Brando returning from the dead to star in a Police Academy movie. Monster-in-Law isn't over-the-top: It's beneath-the-bottom. And I'm not referring to Jennifer Lopez's anatomy, although the script does, constantly. Lopez plays a virtuous Venice Beach, Calif., woman named Charlie (for Charlotte), who holds down several menial jobs while dreaming of designing dresses. Fonda plays Viola, a snooty, just-fired TV talk-show host who can't abide Charlie's engagement to her dreamboat surgeon son, Kevin (Michael Vartan)

ATLANTA - Jane Fonda drives herself to interviews. No limo, no entourage, not even a Mercedes. Just a little silver Toyota Prius. When she pays the parking attendant, the woman doesn't even recognize her. Told she just took a couple of bucks from Jane Fonda, she gasps, "That was her? I love her movies." It is indeed her. devoted mother and grandmother, Oscar-winning actress, Henry's daughter, Ted's ex, political activist, entrepreneur, Braves fan. Fonda keeps re-inventing herself, in life as well as in her career.
