The ‘Joker’ actor Joaquin Phoenix arrested for joining the weekly protest against climate change started by Hollywood veteran Jane Fonda.
According to Variety, the 45-year-old actor also addressed the crowd of close to 300 people.
“Sometimes we wonder what can we do in this fight against climate change, and there is something that you can do today and tomorrow, by making a choice about what you consume,” Phoenix said.
“There are things I can’t avoid. I flew a plane here today, or last night rather, but one thing I can do is change my eating habits,” he added.
Besides Phoenix, veteran Hollywood star Martin Sheen also turned up for the protest and got arrested by the police. Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Susan Sarandon were also present.
