Jane Fonda is not going to stop. Whether she’s advocating for climate change on Capitol Hill or fighting for social justice from her living room, the Academy Award winner, author, and activist finds motivation by fighting for what’s right. But even in this newfound reality of social distancing among a still very active pandemic, Fonda isn’t letting up.
“You do what you have to do when you have to do it,” she tells Glamour over the phone from Los Angeles. “It’s killing me that I can’t join these [Black Lives Matter] protests, but I’m 82 and have a compromised immune system, so I can’t, but I sure wish I could. So I’m trying to use my social media.”
But Fonda isn’t just “trying”; she’s thriving. She’s mastered TikTok and brought back the Jane Fonda workout while at it. She’s found a way to keep her Fire Drill Fridays climate change initiative going on social media (“Last Friday we had 20,000 people watching,” she says, “and hundreds of people across the country doing volunteer work for us. It makes me very happy”), and she’s working on a project to honor essential workers who have died as a result of COVID-19. There’s also her newest book, What Can I Do? My Path From Climate Despair to Action, coming out this September. On top of that, she’s also the new brand ambassador for Uncle Bud’s, the eco-friendly and cruelty-free hemp and CBD brand.
When we caught up with Fonda, she had just finished making gift bags for her Grace and Frankie costar Lily Tomlin and other friends and family. Each was stuffed with Uncle Bud’s products as part of a new social media campaign (watch it below), but everyone is getting the Organic Hemp Seed Oil Hand Sanitizer, which Fonda calls “the love language of 2020.”
These at-home videos are a far cry from the glam and glitz Fonda is normally used to when appearing on camera, but spoken like any influencer, she’s mastered it quickly. “I mean, these videos take time and I never know how I’m going to come out, but it’s fun,” she says. “My assistant has become a cinematographer.”
Armed with that knowledge—and her nonstop energy—we asked Fonda to break down everything from what her self-care routine has looked like in isolation to her products that have been bringing her joy and keeping her sane. Read on for all her answers to Glamour‘s Big Beauty Questions.
Glamour: What made you want to start working with Uncle Bud’s?
Jane Fonda: I’ve known a lot about the value of hemp, so when Uncle Bud’s wanted me to work with them, I said, “Give me a chance to use your products,” and they did. I have osteoarthritis, and their Hemp Roll-On Pain Relief really helped me. They come in all different forms depending on what you like. I also like the Body Lotion with Hemp Seed Oil very much and their hemp face masks are terrific. So after about four months, I said okay, and here we are.
