Jane Fonda in Christian Siriano as Disney Princess Elsa for ELLE Magazine

Posted on April 07, 2022

ELLE’s April 2022 issue, on newsstands now, features Jane Fonda in the final installment of the Modern Heroines series. Jane speaks about moving to Washington, DC to hold weekly protests on Capitol Hill to draw attention to the climate crisis. When it comes to Disney heroines, Fonda favors bravery, citing Frozen’s Elsa, who ventured into the unknown to embrace her true purpose and help save her kingdom. 

 

Jane Fonda has always been a fighter, crusading for civil rights, social justice, and peace. Today she’s leading a battle against climate change. In the fall of 2019, the now 84-year-old actress moved to Washington, DC, and began holding Fire Drill Fridays, weekly protests on Capitol Hill to draw attention to the climate crisis. “People started coming from all over the country, from Oregon, Arizona, Wisconsin, Massachusetts,” she says. “It was quite something.” When it comes to Disney heroines, Fonda favors bravery, citing Frozen’s Elsa, who ventured into the unknown to embrace her true purpose and help save her kingdom. She’s also a fan of the snow queen’s fashion sense: “It’s quite a look. I think it would be a great look [for me].” This year marks the end of Grace & Frankie, the long-running sitcom Fonda stars in alongside Lily Tomlin. “We had a great cast and crew, and we were very close. There were tears when we wrapped,” Fonda says. But just 10 days later, she was able to reunite with Tomlin for Moving On, an upcoming comedy directed by Paul Weitz. “That made it a lot easier.”
