Whether they were concerned about climate change or public school funding, these stars were willing to be arrested while protesting for what they believe in

The 81-year-old actress was arrested on the steps of the United States Capitol while protesting against climate change on Friday, Oct. 11, 2019. Fonda had been open about the fact that she planned to be arrested, saying that she would be protesting for the next 14 Fridays. She told The Washington Post, “I’m going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the [Netflix] series [Grace and Frankie] and I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to have a rally every Friday.” 

Amy Schumer

The comedian was arrested while prostesting Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination in October 2018. Schumer, who was then pregnant, was detained by officers alongside other protesters. In one video of the event, a police officer asks Schumer and another woman, “You want to be arrested?” To which Schumer responded, “Yes.”

George Clooney

The actor was arrested in 2012 for participating in a protest outside of the Sudanese embassy in Washington, D.C., organized to bring attention to the country’s president provoking a crisis with his blockade of humanitarian aide. Clooney was arrested alongside his father, Nick Clooney.

The actress was arrested in 2012 along with seven others, after boarding a Shell-owned oil-drilling ship in New Zealand, which kept the ship from leaving port.
