Jane Fonda may be ancient, but it looks like she could still use a good spanking and have her mouth washed out with soap!

The 70-year-old actress and political activist used a… um, vulgar word to describe a female body part on Thursday morning’s Today show.

The word, which begins with C and rhymes with punt, later prompted a statement of apology from the program’s co-host, Meredith Vieira.

See for yourself. Here’s a highlight reel of Jane Fonda dropping the c-word and Meredith apologizing to the program’s audience afterwards …

Here’s how it went down. Jane Fonda and The Vagina Monologues playwright, Eve Ensler, were having a Valentine’s Day conversation with Vieira about the 15th anniversary of Ensler’s best-known work – and the 10th anniversary of “V-Day,” founded by Ensler to end violence against women and girls around the world.

That’s when Jane Fonda let the “c-word” slip.

“We were talking about The Vagina Monologues and Jane Fonda inadvertently said a word from the play that you don’t say on TV,” Vieira said.

“It was a slip and obviously she apologizes, and so do we. We would do nothing to offend the audience. So please accept that apology.”

We understand, Jane Fonda. Sometimes, the c-word just flies out before you can control yourself. Just like the way Britney Spears often gives us a hairless crotch shot by clubbing in no pants. Give it time and this will blow over.
