Jane Fonda: 'Republican presidential candidates scare me'

By
Jane Fonda has said that she is frightened by the current crop of Republican presidential candidates.

The politically active actress discussed the 2012 presidential race during an interview on Piers Morgan Tonight, revealing that she fears for the future of the country.

Fonda said: "They all scare me, frankly… I'm worried about anybody getting elected to office who says we have to do away with or privatise social security, we have to reduce medical health insurance, we have to not raise taxes.

"And, oh, there's no problem with the environment, this is all made up by the left, the scientists don't really know what they're talking about - this worries me."



Fonda was a staunch critic of the Vietnam War in the 1970s and has since supported a variety of feminist causes.

In July, the star accused QVC of cancelling her scheduled appearance on the shopping network for political reasons. QVC later refused to comment on the charge.

Fonda has also revealed that criticism of her weight as a young girl made her obsessed with her appearance.
