After previously being married three times, Jane Fonda admitted she had all but given up on finding her Mr Right.
But when she agreed to be introduced to a new man by good pal Carrie Fisher, the 71-year-old was pleasantly surprised.
Her date was Richard Perry, a 67-year-old music producer, whom she'd met years before when he backed her husband at the time, Tom Hayden, in his run for the US senate.
Romance blossomed unexpectedly for the acquaintances 25 years after their last meeting. And two weeks ago they were spotted embracing outside a restaurant in LA.
"In May I told friends I'd stop thinking about love. 'That's all over for me', I thought," explained the screen legend. "But then wham! Life is good."
"Jane is really happy," a source close to the actress says. " She's been saying she feels like a teenager in love."
