Ailing Jane Fonda to Miss Premiere

Jane Fonda (search) canceled plans to attend a premiere of a documentary about her former husband Roger Vadim (search) 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.

Vadim directed Fonda in his 1968 sci-fi sexual spoof "Barbarella" (search).
