Jane Fonda, the 82-years-old Hollywood star is an outspoken activist on the subject of climate change.
After declaring publicly that she won’t be buying any new clothing as part of her ongoing climate change protest, she appeared in a recycled look at the 2020 Academy Awards.
Fonda took the stage in a gray pixie cut and a crimson beaded Elie Saab gown she previously wore to Cannes in 2014, to present the Best Film award.
She also carried the cardinal-red coat, that she previously declared was “the last article of clothing I will ever buy” as part of her ongoing climate change protests.
