  • FITNESS ICON.

  • ON SUNDAY NIGHT, SHE RECEIVED THE CECIL B. DEMILLE AWARD AT

  • THE GOLDEN GLOBES.

  • PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW," JANE FONDA!

  • JANE, THANKS FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> THANKS FOR HAVING ME, STEPHEN, IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU

  • AGAIN, I TOLD LILY TOMLIN TODAY THAT I WAS GOING TO BE ON YOUR

  • SHOW, SHE'S VERY JEALOUS.

  • THE LAST TWO TIMES I THINK I WAS ALWAYS ON YOUR SHOW WITH LILY.

  • >> Jon: >> Stephen: I LOVE HAVING YOU

  • BOTH ON, THANK YOU FOR BEING MERE AND THANK YOU FOR WEARING

  • YOUR REVOLUTIONARY BERET.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT.

  • >> Stephen: LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE READY TO TAKE TO THE HILLS WITH

  • COULD MANNER MARS COULD.

  • NOW CONGRATULATIONS ON THE CECIL B DE MILL AWARD IT WAS LOVELY TO

  • SEE YOU GET.

  • IT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR SPEECH IN JUST A MOMENT BUT I

  • GOT TO ASK, WITH SOMEONE WITH SUCH A LONG AND STORIED CAREER

  • AS YOURS DO AWARDS MEAN ANYTHING TO JANE FONDA.

  • >> OH MY GOSH, YES.

  • ESPECIALLY, IT'S KIND OF MIRACULOUS FOR ME TO GET AWARDS.

  • YOU KNOW, I RETIRED FROM THE INDUSTRY FOR 15 YEARS.

  • TEN OF THOSE YEARS I WAS MARRIED TO TED TURNER AND YOU KNOW, YOU

  • CAN'T WORK AND BE MARRIED TO TED TURNER.

  • >> Stephen: BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO RAISE THE BUFFALO, THE

  • BUFFALO HERD TO LOOK AFTER.

  • >> THAT'S RIGHT, THAT'S RIGHT.

  • AND THEN FIVE YEARS WRITING MY MEMOIRS.

  • AND I CAME BACK AT 65 WITH MONSTER IN LAW, YOU KNOW.

  • SO AND I'M ALMOST 84 NOW, SO THE FACT THAT I'M STILL WORKING AND

  • THAT I HAVE JUST WON THIS IS JUST TO ME MIRACULOUS.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, THE SPEECH WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL.

  • YOU TALKED ABOUT, FOR THOSE WHO HADN'T SEEN IT JANE SPOKE SO

  • ELOQUENTLY ABOUT LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING AND OUR COMMON

  • HUMANITY AND THE ROLE OF THE ARTS FOR REVEALING THAT.

  • AND ONE OF THE THINGS I ADMIRE ABOUT YOU IS THAT YOU DON'T JUST

  • TALK THE TALK, YOU HAVE WALKED THE WALK.

  • YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE FOR YOUR ENTIRE CAREER.

  • WHAT DID THIS MOMENT IN TIME RIGHT NOW MEAN TO YOU AS SOMEONE

  • WHO HAS WORKED SO HARD TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

  • BECAUSE SO MANY THINGS ARE CHANGING RIGHT NOW.

  • >> I'M EXTREMELY HOPEFUL.

  • THE LAST FOUR YEAR VTION BEEN PAINFUL FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.

  • AND VERY, VERY DISTURBING.

  • BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ALSO FOR THE FIRST TIME REALIZED THE EXTENT

  • TO WHICH WHITE SUPREMACY STILL IS ALIVE IN THIS COUNTRY, THE

  • EXTENT TO WHICH POLICE VIOLENCE IS HARMING BLACK PEOPLE.

  • AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S TENS OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS NOW WHO

  • ARE AWARE OF THE URGENCY OF THE CLIMATE CRISIS AND ALL OF THESE

  • THINGS ARE CONNECTED.

  • AND PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT.

  • AND SO I FEEL, I FEEL THAT WE'RE AT A PIVOTAL POINT IN HUMAN

  • HISTORY, WHEN PEOPLE ARE REALLY READY TO MAKE OUR ELECTED

  • OFFICIALS DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE AND ADDRESS ALL OF THESE

  • INTERSECTIONAL CRISES.

  • AND I THINK WE CAN DO IT.

  • >> WELL, ONE OF THE WAYS YOU HAVE BEEN WALKING THE WALK, WE

  • TALKED ABOUT THE LAST TIME WE WERE ON THE SHOW, IN 2019 YOU

  • STARTED SOMETHING CALLED FIRE DRILL FRIDAYS.

  • AND IT'S A MOVEMENT TO CONFRONT CLIMATED CHANGE AND OBVIOUSLY

  • WE'RE ALL IN COVID LOCKDOWN IN VARIOUS STATES OF STRIN

  • AGAINSTEE AND YOU KNOW, MUTUAL COOPERATION.

  • FIRST OF ALL HOW IS COVID BEEN FOR YOU?

  • LIKE HOW HAS THE ZOOM PROTESTING OR ZOOM INTERVIEWS, LIKE HOW

  • HAVE YOU ADAPTED TO THE ZOOM WORLD?

  • >> WE DO FIRE DRILL FRIDAYS IN FACT THIS IS OUR YEAR

  • ANNIVERSARY.

  • WE'VE BEEN DOING THEM EVERY FRIDAY FOR A YEAR.

  • DO YOU KNOW STEPHEN-- STEVEN WE HAD OVER 9 MILLION VIEWERS

  • ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS.

  • WE WERE WORRIED THAT WITH COVID PEOPLE WOULD STOP THINKING ABOUT

  • THE CLIMATE.

  • THEY DIDN'T.

  • AND THOUSANDS OF THEM TOOK ACTION APPROACHING THE

  • ELECTIONS, WRITING IN, CALLING ELECTED OFFICIALS, CALLING

  • VOTERS WHO SAT OUT THE LAST ELECTIONS.

  • AND MOST OF THEM HAD NEVER DONE IT BEFORE SO YOU KNOW, I'M

  • PRETTY JAZZED ABOUT WHAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH AND

  • CONTINUE.

  • TOMORROW WE FOCUS ON THIS INCREDIBLE BILL IN WASHINGTON

  • RIGHT NOW, HR1 THAT WOULD GET DARK MONEY OUT OF POLITICS AND

  • YOU KNOW, EXPAND OUR VOTING RIGHTS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

  • JOHN, CONGRESSMAN JOHN SAR BAINS FROM MARYLAND WHO INTRODUCED HR1

  • IS GOING TO BE ONE OF OUR GUESTS.

  • AND I DON'T KNOW, I HOPE EVERYBODY CAN JOIN.

  • IT STARTS 11:00 WEST COAST TIME.

  • >> Stephen: HOW DO THEY JOIN IN, WHERE DO THEY GO TO FIND

  • OUT.

  • >> WELL, IT'S ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM BUT IT'S ALSO

  • FIRE DRILL FRIDAY, THE WEBSITE FIRE DRILL FRIDAY.COM.

  • THEY CAN WATCH IT THAT WAY.

  • >> Stephen: NOW ANOTHER THING GOING ON IS RELATED TO ONE OF

  • YOUR EARLIEST CAUSES WHICH IS PROTEST THE VIETNAM WAR.

  • YOU WERE AN ANTIWAR ROAD SHOW THAT WAS CAPTURED IN A 1972

  • DOCUMENTARY CALLED FTA AND IT'S BEING RE-RELEASED TOMORROW, IF

  • IT WAS CAPTURED IN 1972, FIRST OF ALL, WHAT IS IT AND WHY IS IT

  • BEING RELEASED NO YOU?

  • >> WELL, I DON'T THINK MOST PEOPLE REALIZE THAT PARTICULARLY

  • STARTING IN 1-9D 68 THERE WAS A VERY ROBUST GI MOVEMENT.

  • A LOT OF SERVICEMEN, MOSTLY MEN, SOME WOMEN WERE OPPOSED TO THE

  • WAR OR QUESTIONING THE WAR.

  • AND THEY WERE STARTING TO ARGUE.

  • AND DR. HOWARD LEVY, HE WAS AN ARMY MEDIC SUGGESTED TO ME AND I

  • HAD JUST FINISHED MAKING CLOOT, DONALD SUTORLAND AND I WERE

  • TOGETHER AND HE SUGGESTED THAT WE PUT TOGETHER A SHOW TO KIND

  • OF COUNTER THE BOB HOPE SHOW THAT WAS VERY PROWAR AND

  • MISOGYNISTIC.

  • AND HE SAID CALL IT [BLEEP] THE ARMY.

  • AND BECAUSE THAT'S, THERE WAS A GI ANTIWAR NEWSPAPER CALLED THE

  • FTA.

  • SO WE TOOK THAT NAME, WE GOT A GROUP OF PERFORMERS TOGETHER.

  • AND WE TRAVELED IN THE FALL AND WINTER OF 1971.

  • HAWAII, THE PHILIPPINES, OKINAWA AND JAPAN AFTER WE TOURED THE

  • UNITED STATES.

  • AND PERFORMED FOR OVER 60,000 SERVICE MEMBER.

  • AND YOU KNOW, WE'VE BEEN FED THIS MYTH THAT THERE WAS THE

  • ANTIWAR MOVEMENT AND THEN THERE WERE THE GI'S AND THEY HATED

  • EACH OTHER.

  • WHICH WAS TOTALLY NOT TRUE.

  • JUST LOOKING OUT AT SEAS, THE SEA OF FACES OF THESE SOLDIERS

  • LAUGHING AND APPLAUDING AND REALLY, YOU KNOW, ENJOYING THE

  • FACT THAT WE ARE WERE THERE.

  • IT WAS THRILLING.

  • OKAY SO IT OPENED, PLAYED A WEEK AT A MOVIE THEATER IN NEW YORK,

  • AND DISAPPEARED.

  • THIS WAS DURING THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION.

  • GONE.

  • WELL, A COPY WAS FOUND AND IT WAS-- .

  • >> Stephen: WAIT A SECOND, NOT JUST PULLED FROM THE THEATER,

  • LITERALLY THE PRINT DISAPPEARED.

  • >> JUST DISAPPEARED.

  • AND A COPY WAS FOUND AND THE WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION CALLED

  • INDIE COLLECT RESTORED IT.

  • AND IT'S BEING RELEASED TOMORROW IN KENO MARQUEE VIRTUAL SIN HE

  • MAS ONLINE.

  • >> Stephen: WE HAVE A CLIP HERE, DO YOU-- WHAT ARE WE GOING

  • TO SEE?

  • >> WELL, MICHAEL WAS ONE OF OUR ACTORS AND HE AND I DID A SKIT

  • THAT HE PLAYED NIXON AND I PLAYED PAT.

  • AND WE WERE IT SORT OF SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.

  • I CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE WE WERE IN THAT PARTICULAR CLIP.

  • PROBABLY OKINAWA.

  • >> Stephen: IT SAYS OKINAWA HERE, I THINK.

  • ARE YOU PERFORMING FOR SOLDIERS HERE?

  • >> OH YEAH, UH-HUH, ALWAYS FOR SOLDIERS.

  • >> MR. PRESIDENT, THERE IS A TERRIBLE DEMONSTRATION GOING ON

  • OUTSIDE.

  • >> OH, THERE'S ALWAYS A DEMONSTRATION GOING ON OUTSIDE,

  • PAT.

  • >> BUT RICHARD, THIS ONE IS COMPLETELY OUT OF CONTROL.

  • >> WHAT ARE THEY ASKING FOR THIS TIME.

  • >> FRE ANGELA DAVIS AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS OUT OF

  • VIETNAM NOW AND DRAFT ALL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

  • >> WE ASK PEOPLE TO DO THAT, THEY WILL DO THEIR JOB, I WILL

  • DO THEIR JOB.

  • >> YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND THEY ARE STORMING THE WHITE HOUSE.

  • >> THEN I BETTER CALL OUT THE THIRD MARINES.

  • >> YOU CAN'T, RICHARD.

  • >> WHY NOT.

  • >> IT IS THE THIRD MARINES.

  • >> Stephen: I UNDERSTAND THE BEFORE YOU WENT OVER THE GREAT

  • TRAIN RIDER DALTON TROM BEAU GAVE YOU SOME ADVICE, HE HAD

  • PROTESTED IN THE '20S AND 30S.

  • WHAT ADVICE DID HE GIVE YOU ABOUT BEFORE YOU WENT TO EAST

  • ASIA TO DO THESE SHOWS?

  • >> IN HE WAS, HE SAID DON'T FORGET TO BE HAPPY.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT DID HE MEAN BY THAT?

  • >> JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE DEALING WITH A VERY SERIOUS SUBJECT AND

  • YOU'RE TRYING TO END THE WAR DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU CAN'T FEEL

  • JOY.

  • ACTIVISM IS JOY-FILLED.

  • IT IS FUN.

  • YOU FEEL GOOD KNOWING THAT ARE YOU DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN.

  • YOU PUT YOUR WHOLE BODY ON THE LINE.

  • AND YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT YOU KNOW BEING AN ACTIVIST

  • MEANS LIKE EAT YOUR BROCCOLI.

  • BUT IT'S ACTUALLY FUN.

  • AND DAL TORN WAS REMINDING US TO BE HAPPY BECAUSE IT'S

  • CONTAGIOUS.

  • AND ALSO LAUGHTER, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF TIMES YOUR GUARD IS

  • DROPPED WHEN ARE YOU LAUGHING AND NEW IDEAS COME IN, AT LEAST

  • THAT IS WHAT I FOUND.

  • WHEN I'M WRITING AND I HAVE A WRITER'S CRAMP, IF I CAN FIND A

  • WAY TO LAUGH, IDEAS COME IN BECAUSE MY GUARD IS DOWN, DO YOU

  • FLOW WHAT I MEAN?

  • WELL, I MEAN, LOOK AT YOU.

  • YOU KNOW THAT BETTER THAN I DO.

  • >> Stephen: I DO KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN, ON GOOD DAYS.

  • WELL, JANE, THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN, STEPHEN

  • >> Stephen: YOU CAN JOIN "FIRE DRILL FRIDAYS" ONLINE, AND YOU

  • CAN SEE HER IN THE DOCUMENTARY "F.T.A." STARTING THIS FRIDAY.
