Who says it's not easy being green?
While Young Hollywood definitely represented at the event—hosts Jason Ritter and Olivia Munn, Wilmer Valderrama, Michaela Conlin and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, just to name a few—it was H'wood royalty Jane Fonda who stole the show…
When presenting the EMA Lifetime Achievement Award to ex-husband Ted Turner, Fonda praised Turner for his foundation's work in stopping female genital mutilation, slyly noting, "He puts his money where his mouth is."
The night's other big honoree, EMA Corporate Responsibility Award winner Jeff Skoll (producer of the Oscar winning doc The Cove and the upcoming environmental warning tale/horror flick The Crazies), likewise embarrassed his award presenter Natalie Portman by featuring a clip of an 11-year-old Natalie literally singing the praises of recycling.
