Jane and Lindsay "Do the Jane Fonda"

It was quite a sight to behold -- the wild child Lindsay Lohan pulling Jane Fonda out on the floor to dance up a storm to: "Do the Jane Fonda," the funky, raunchy song by Mickey Avalon with lyrics:

"One, two, three, four, get your booty on the dance floor, work it out, shake it little momma, lemme see you do the Jane Fonda"
The unique cross-generational gyrations took place at the after party of the film premier of "Georgia Rule," at New York City's China Club Tuesday night. Eager party goers grabbed their cell phones to document the exuberant display of affection between Lohan and Fonda. With an age difference of approximately 50 years, Fonda shook her booty right fine, giving the 20 year old party girl Lohan, a run for her money.

In Georgia Rule, Fonda, Felicity Huffman and Lohan play grandmother, mother, and daughter in a compelling dissection of painful familial repetition. Each actor does powerfully moving work in a multi-layered exploration of anger, sexual seduction and molestation, eventually all worked out in an American film-style happy ending. And it is Lohan, easily dismissed for her media-hyped acting out, who frequently dominates the screen.

The premier and party was a fund raiser for AlterNet's content partner, the Women's Media Center. Another aging super star, Gloria Steinem, hosted the event and urged the audience to fight to ensure that women's stories are half the news.
