Perennial interviewee Jane Fonda will be the one asking the questions at tonight’s annual Empower Party benefit for Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential. In front of a sold-out crowd in the Georgia Aquarium ballroom, G-CAPP’s founder will interview CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta as the nonprofit advances its teen pregnancy prevention mission to include adolescent health and well being. In an exclusive interview with Atlanta magazine, the 75-year-old two-time Oscar winner discusses what’s on her notepad for Dr. Gupta, what’s next for G-CAPP, shooting that Twitter trending “You will resign when I fire you out of petty malice and not before!” Newsroom scene and how ex-hubby Ted Turner introduced her to the stupid joys of Dumb and Dumber.
