Despite last year’s cringe-worthy interview with Megyn Kelly, Jane Fonda now has sympathy for the embroiled TV host.

The “Grace and Frankie” star told Entertainment Tonight she had hoped for the best for the former host of the third hour of “Today.” News broke last week that “Megyn Kelly Today” was canceled after Kelly defended blackface costumes.

“I feel badly because I wanted her to make it – I did,” Fonda told the outlet at Thursday’s Women’s Media Awards.
