To be a revolutionary you have to be a human being. You have to care about people who have no power.
Quotes from the news wire:
Last month, Jane Fonda opened up about spending the night in jail in a lengthy interview with The Hollywood Reporter. The most disturbing part of it was seeing the people in jail and realizing that this country doesnt choose to put enough resources into social safety nets and mental health services because so many of the people are there because of poverty and racism and mental health issues.
She read the [ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ] report and she realized that the crisis was barreling straight at us, like a train, and looked around and people weren't behaving appropriately. It so traumatized her that she stopped eating. I hadn't realized that she stopped eating and speaking for almost a year. And that really hit me.
For the bulk of my life, I would say up until my seventies, I spent my life like a double image, like a double exposure, as an adolescent, in order to fit in, I made sure no one especially boys or men could see who I really was ; that I could get really angry, that I could not be pretty, that I could be tough. I went through life not whole.
When I left Ted [ Turner, Fondas second husband ], I could feel Jane Fonda moving back into Jane Fonda. That is the main thing about the third act as Im living it. I am no longer a double image, i had several serious relationships after [ Ted ], but... I realize I can never overcome it. That when Im with a man, I give up Jane Fonda.
