Jane Fonda uses her fame to increase climate change by getting herself arrested every Friday in Washington DC.
The two-time Oscar winner, 81, was free to walk around after paying a $ 50 fine the first three times she was arrested in Capitol and accused of a crime, but her last arrest brought her to jail for the night because it her marked fourth crime.
She opened her night behind bars and teased some celebrities who would soon accompany her in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Fonda also said that the stakes are much, much higher than in the 1970s when she protested against the Vietnam war.
& # 39; (W) we are now protesting is a ticking existential time bomb that surrounds everything – everyone's life, economy, health, military, national security, everything, & # 39; said Fonda.
& # 39; We are facing a real catastrophe. Science tells us that we have 11 years to make systemic changes to prevent it from becoming uncontrollable. & # 39;
Fonda calls its weekly protests & # 39; Fire Drill Fridays & # 39 ;.

Behind Bars-barella: Jane Fonda (above on October 25) has spent the last four Fridays protesting in the Capitol in the name of climate change until she is taken away with her hands tied up by the police
I know you want to do the Jane Fonda: in a new interview she reveals that Lily Tomlin, Diane Lane (left), Brooklyn Decker (right with Fonda and Tomlin), June Diane Raphael, Taylor Schilling and more will join her soon in DC
Fonda certainly ensures more fame thanks to this celebrity.
And she won't do it alone after turning on a star framework to help her emphasize that drastic changes are needed to eliminate a person's ecological footprint.
Ted Danson, Sam Waterston, Catherine Keener and Rosanna Arquette have already joined the protests to support the environment and their friend
June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn Decker, the actresses playing Fonda's & # 39; s daughters in the Netflix show & # 39; Grace and Frankie & # 39 ;, are going to DC next weekend to join her, along with some writers from the show.
Lily Tomlin, her co-star in & # 39; 9 to 5 & # 39; and again now in & # 39; Grace and Frankie & # 39 ;, will also appear.
Fonda said that Diane Lane, Kyra Sedgewick and Taylor Schilling are also going down, while Mark Ruffalo and Don Cheadle have yet to respond to Fonda.
And on Friday, Ben & Jerry & # 39; s co-founders will accompany Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield Fonda to her fifth arrest.
There will also be a protest and a party all merged on December 20, when Fonda Eerw. William Barber, Dolores Huerta and others welcomes in DC for her birthday and a rescue operation.
By that time, she will avoid jail and say she must be sure she is not acquiring enough offenses to justify a 90-day sentence, making her filming on & # 39; Grace and Frankie & # 39; would miss, which will soon start filming the seventh and final season.

Cheers: & # 39; Well, you know, I'm a white movie star. What are they going to do? & # 39; Fonda noted of her time in prison (Danson is arrested on October 25)
Law and order: Fonda then shared how serious she is about the climate and stated that she will never buy a piece of clothing again in her life (Waterston is arrested on October 18)
In her eyes: Fonda closed by declaring that she believed Barack Obama & # 39; dropped the ball & # 39; on climate change (Arquette will be arrested on November 1)
Fonda said she was struggling in prison but was still treated better than her fellow prisoners.
& # 39; Well, you know, I'm a white movie star. What are they going to do? & # 39; noted Fonda.
& # 39; Frankly, the circumstances aren't great, and you have to sleep on a metal plate. And I'm almost 82 years old and I'm in pain. & # 39;
She also said that she spent a lot of time alone after her arrest last week.
& # 39; I was in the cell for 20 hours and seven in the cell. It was a pen. All cells had multiple people except mine, & Fonda said.
& # 39; In my cell, it was just me and the cockroaches. & # 39;
Then, after seven o'clock, Fonda said she was placed in a cell with four other women, and shortly thereafter a female prisoner joined the group.
& # 39; I have talked with them and heard their stories, & # 39; said Fonda, who prisons the & # 39; new Jim Crow & # 39; called.
Fonda then shared how serious she is about the climate and said she would never buy a piece of clothing again in her life, and that her last purchase was the $ 500 coat in which she was arrested every week.
She also takes the train instead of an airplane, drives a hybrid, and has removed most of her single-use fish, meat, and plastic from her life.
The excluded actress stated that she believed Barack Obama & # 39; dropped the ball & # 39; about climate change.
& # 39; I think he did a great job and I miss him and Michelle, but I don't think he has the seriousness of the climate. And he's not alone, & Fonda said.
& # 39; And that is why I am in D.C. This is now and we have almost no time left. & # 39;
