Two-time Academy Award winner Jane Fonda was just arrested on the steps of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. for the second week in a row.
The daughter of Hollywood legend Henry Fonda was arrested for protesting climate change in the nation’s capital.
And on Friday, Jane Fonda was arrested alongside another Hollywood legend in Washington, D.C.
Jane Fonda has been the talk of Hollywood over the last couple of weeks because of her back-to-back arrests in two consecutive weeks.
Fonda asked Netflix for a hiatus from her hit show “Grace and Frankie” so that she could travel to Washington, D.C. for several months while she protested on behalf of climate change in the capital. The “Klute” star claims that 16-year-old Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, was who inspired her to be a nuisance to Capitol Police.
She’s reveling in the newfound infamy right now too. Fonda has been craving that attention by granting interviews all over the place. Every time the actress is arrested, somebody in the liberal mainstream media wants an interview.
Recently on ABC News’ “The Briefing,” audaciously claimed she’s been a climate scientists for “decades.”
She said, “I’ve been a climate scientist for decades and decades, but it was Greta Thunberg, this little Swedish girl holding her sign every Friday in front of the Swedish Parliament. And all the student strikers all over the world who have really risked a lot and given up a lot in order to say, ‘Wake up old people. How come you’re not standing with us? You’ve taken our future away!’”
Fonda claims that but she never even graduated from college.
Nevertheless, the 81-year-old actress was joined by co-star of “Grace and Frankie” and mostly famous for his starring role in “Law and Order,” Sam Waterston, who was also placed under arrest on Friday.
You’ve probably already deduced that it was two consecutive Fridays and that’s because it’s a new thing called “Fire Drill Friday’s,” which is an organization focused on initiatives like Congresswoman Alexander Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal.”
Fonda wrote, “Every Friday through January, I will be leading weekly demonstrations on Capitol Hill to demand that action by our political leaders be taken to address the climate emergency we are in. We can’t afford to wait.”
Here are some pictures snapped during the arrests.

When Waterston was taken into the wagon, the actor allegedly said, “It’s good to be here,” which is objectively funny. If you really want to go to jail that bad then by all means, right?
On Waterston’s arrest, Fonda said “Sam, my hero.”
But it looks like they’ll be there through January, which means at least Fonda will be arrested dozens of times in that time span.
And Fonda, particularly, probably loves every minute of this infamy.
