Veteran actress Jane Fonda, who is all set to host next season of Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (G-CAPP) fundraiser, says American media mogul Ted Turner is her favourite ex-husband.

Fonda, 74, married Turner in 1991 and the couple divorced after a decade, reported Us magazine. "This year we wanted an event that allowed for a deeper discussion of the work that G-CAPP does and how it all began.

That meant involving Ted [Turner], my favourite ex-husband, as it was he who inspired my creating G-CAPP almost 18 years ago." "We decided to throw an 'EmPower Party' at the Atlanta Aquarium and have a dialogue with Ted and me, moderated by our mutual friend, the incomparable Pat Mitchell.

Turner was also honoured with "the inaugural 'Big Thinker' Award," she said. G-CAPP was founded in 1995 in the United States when the state had the highest teen birth rate. Prior to marrying Turner, Fonda had two failed marriages.

She was wed to the late screenwriter-director Roger Vadim from 1965 to 1973. After divorce, she was also married to political activist Tom Hayden. Now, Fonda is currently dating music producer Richard Perry, 70.
