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.
“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.”
Watch Fonda’s take on the debates below.
