Joaquin Phoenix and Martin Sheen became the latest celebrities to get arrested at Jane Fonda's weekly climate protest on the Capitol steps in Washington, D.C., on Friday. Phoenix reportedly showed up uninvited, which thrilled Fonda, and told his fellow protesters (including Maggie Gyllenhaal), "I struggle so much with what I can do [to combat climate change] at times. There are things that I can't avoid--I flew a plane out here today, or last night, rather. But one thing that I can do is change my eating habits." After refusing to leave the area, the recent Golden Globe winner and Sheen were arrested, joining Sally Field, Ted Danson, Sam Waterston, Rosanna Arquette, and Fonda in her exclusive celebrity jailbird club.
