Daryl Hannah Arrested At White House Protest


In case you were wondering, “What that actress from Splash up to these days?,” the answer is: taking on the U.S. government. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daryl Hannah got arrested outside the White House today while taking part in a sit-in against a proposed extension to a tar sand pipeline running from Canada to Oklahoma. Allegedly Hannah’s rep was unaware of the arrest when contacted by CNN earlier today, which just sort of adds to the whole rogue, badass mystique Daryl now has in our minds.

Joined by roughly 100 others at the protest, Hannah reportedly said, “We stand here today to just say no to slavery, to just say no to tar sands, oil and no to the Keystone pipeline.” Daryl has been arrested for protesting about environmental issues before, including a 2006 arrest for chaining herself to a tree, and one in 2009 during a sit-in to protest mining in West Virginia. One more arrest and we can officially declare Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 the second and third coolest things Daryl has ever done, respectively.
