Fonda Hearts OWS, Ignores Waning Movement's Violence, Anti-Semitism

Jane Fonda swears that she didn’t live the hippie lifestyle back in the 1960s despite her attachment to the era’s anti-war movement.

But she must have inhaled something back then to refer to the Occupy Wall Street movement as both “successful” and having “good values.”

Fonda, who plays a hippie grandma in the new film “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding,” told The Huffington Post how much she admires OWS, the flailing protest movement known for its violence, rapes and anti-semitism.

What’s your opinion of the Occupy movement?

Right on! I say right on! It’s an important, wonderful movement. It doesn’t fit the mold.

Is that what you like about it? That it doesn’t fit the mold?

I think that’s what allows it to be successful in its own way. Because it has no leader; it has no set of rules. But, the values are good and it makes a difference. And I say right on.

Your point about not having a leader is interesting.

It limits the range if there’s a leader. This can occupy a big space on a lot of different areas, but the core value is, “What about democracy?” It’s about democracy and against greed.
