During an interview last week, BBC asked the 79-year-old actress if she is “proud of America today.” She responded, “No.”
“But, I’m proud of the resistance,” she said. “I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what [President Donald] Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core.”
Later, the “9 to 5” star was asked if she regrets her trip to North Vietnam in 1972. She said that while she doesn’t regret it, she does regret appearing at an anti-aircraft ceremony that made her look like she was “siding with the enemy.” That moment earned her the “Hanoi Jane” nickname.
“The thing that I regret is that on my last day there, I made the mistake of going to a ceremony at an anti-aircraft gun,” Fonda explained. “It wasn’t being used. There were no airplanes or anything like that. There was a ceremony. I was asked to sing and people were laughing and so forth and I was led, and I sat down. And then I got up and as I walked away, I realized, ‘Oh my gosh. It’s going to look like I am against my own country’s soldiers and siding with the enemy,’ which is the last thing in the world that was true.”
