Jane Fonda on the Republican Debates: 'They All Scare Me Frankly' (Video)
The iconic actress and activist explains why she gets depressed about the current presidential candidates from the right.
As the Republican presidential candidates debate in Iowa on Saturday night, expect iconic actress and activist, Jane Fonda, to be really depressed as she watches.
Fonda appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Friday in which the host asked her who impresses or who scares her among the party’s candidates.
"They all scare me frankly," Fonda answers. "I get depressed and scared when I look at the Republican debates."
Morgan then asked her if even former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, or former Mass. Governor, Mitt Romney, scare her.
“I’m worried about anybody getting elected to office who says we have to do away with or privatize social security, we have to reduce health insurance, we have to not raise taxes,” Fonda, 73, says. “And that there’s no problem with the environment.”
The Hollywood Reporter recently honored Fonda at its 20th annual Women in Entertainment breakfast celebration on Wednesday with the Sherry Lansing Leadership award. And she detailed the qualities she felt every leader should possess: “Intelligence, compassion, strategy, kindness [and] knowing a good story.”
