However, Bateman, who plays Fonda's on screen son in director Shawn Levy's film, about a dysfunctional Jewish family, enjoyed working with her, reports contactmusic.com.
"She fully made me cry in scenes where I was not supposed to cry. Since I had kids, I'm a real (sensitive soul), I cry at commercials... it's terrible...," he said.
"But when Jane Fonda gets going with this great script on top of it, I started to weep a couple times, embarrassingly, and the director had to say, 'We need a couple takes with you where you're dry. Will you shut the faucet off, little girl?'
"But she's so, so great in this movie, you've gotta go see her. She had a real, real presence, a great pedigree that she lends to this film," he added.
