PARIS - Jane Fonda canceled plans to attend a premiere of a documentary about her former husband Roger Vadim 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.

Lyons said Fonda, 67, 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 was expected to attend a second showing of the documentary in Paris on Tuesday night, said producer Philippe Aubert.

"Jane Fonda did indeed undergo exams this morning at the American Hospital, but she was back at her hotel by the early afternoon," Aubert said.

He said Fonda was expected to spend several days in France to promote her memoir, "My Life So Far."

Fonda was married to Vadim from 1965 to 1973. He died in 2000.

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