Jane Fonda Wears Old Gown To Oscars To Fight Climate Change

By PopZette Staff | February 10, 2020

While presenting at the Oscars last night, Jane Fonda wore a gown that she had previously worn, saying that she was doing so to fight climate change.

Fonda appeared onstage to present the Best Picture award wearing a gown that she had worn to the 2014 to the Cannes Film Festival, saying that she was inspired to do this by climate change activist Greta Thunberg, according to Breitbart News.

Fonda said specifically in an interview last year, “I’m not buying any more clothes.”

“You see this coat?” Fonda, 82, said last year during a climate change protest, according to People Magazine. “I needed something red and I went out and found this coat on sale. This is the last article of clothing that I’m gonna ever buy.”

“I grew up when consumerism didn’t have such a stranglehold over us,” Fonda continued. “So, when I talk to people and say, ‘We don’t really need to keep shopping. We shouldn’t look to shopping for our identity. We just don’t need more stuff,’ I have to walk the talk. So, I’m not buying any more clothes.”

Fonda has become known as of late for getting arrested on Fridays during climate change protests in Washington D.C.

“We marched together and we protested together and chanted and sang together and we got arrested together,” Fonda said of a recent protest. “The purpose was to raise awareness of the urgency of the climate crisis.”

Aside from her acting, Fonda was previously known for her protests against the Vietnam War, during which she earned herself the nickname of Hanoi Jane by being photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun.
