Jane Fonda spoke to Stephen Colbert about getting arrested five times during the Fire Drill Fridays climate-change protests as she appeared on “The Late Show” Monday.

Fonda, 82, has been pictured in handcuffs during the weekly demonstrations at Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C., on numerous occasions over the past few months.

She told Colbert of the climate crisis, “Well, humankind is facing the greatest crisis that we’ve ever faced and there were all these young students that were sacrificing a lot and working so hard.”

Fonda added, when asked if the police were fed up with her, “Look, I’m white and I’m famous. What happens to me is different than what would happen if I was a person of colour and I wasn’t famous.”

She also dished out some advice to anyone wanting to get involved but may end up getting arrested.

“You wear layers of clothes if it’s winter and you may spend the night in jail, you want a lot of layers so you can use them for pillows. All you need is a photo ID that’s up to date and $50. If you don’t have $50 we give it to you.”

The actress added, “We don’t do civil disobedience as a first effort but we’ve been petitioning and writing and marching and begging the government and they don’t hear.

“We’ve used every level of democracy and so we have to take a step further and that’s why we’re engaging in civil disobedience and risking getting arrested.”

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
