Fonda, Turner reunite at Environmental Media Awards

Saving the planet can make for strange bedfellows, but when it’s a global cause, hatchets are buried and the lovefest begins. That’s why famously divorced couple Jane Fonda and Ted Turner kissed and cooed on stage at the 20th annual Environmental Media Awards on Saturday night. It was chilly and even a little wet at the outdoor festivities on the Warner Bros. lot (rain in SoCal in October, just another sign of global warming, it seems), as Fonda called Turner “my favorite ex-husband” (she has three) and extolled his “strong commitment to environmental and humanitarian causes” while handing over the EMA Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Avatar” snared the EMA for feature film. Clutching his prize, James Cameron exhorted the Hollywood glitterati to step up. “We have such power in our industry, and we need to lead in this cause,” he told the crowd.

The Hollywood Green Team included Natalie Portman, who blushed bright red when honoree Jeff Skoll played a clip of the actress at age 11, exhorting the world in a disco video to “recycle, reuse, renew.” Seems some of Hollywood’s biggest stars have had a conscience all along. – — Jenny Peters
