7 Protesting Actors Who Got Their Asses Arrested (Besides Daryl Hannah)

Oil makes Daryl Hannah cry. 

Daryl Hannah got her ass arrested while protesting the expansion of the Keystone pipeline outside of the White House. That is to say, she was protesting outside the White House. They’re not considering putting the pipeline there. That would be harmful.

In honor of her efforts (he pointless, pointless efforts), here are seven other celebrities who got arrested for having “feelings” and “believing” in things.

Woody Harrelson

Go ahead and guess why Woody Harrelson was arrested. If your guess wasn’t hemp-related, you don’t know Woody (I would have also accepted photographer-punching). Harrelson was arrested on drug charges when he planted hemp seeds in Kentucky, protesting a state drug law that makes no distinction between marijuana and hemp, even though hemp contains very little of the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana and can be used to make a variety of industrial products. He was later acquitted, and probably celebrated after picking up some bleezies.

Hayden Panettiere

As shown in the documentary The Cove, Hayden Panettiere has a warrant out for her arrest in Japan for protesting the annual slaughter of dolphins in Taiji. Luckily, she left the country before police could arrest her. Do you know what they do to hot, young women in Japanese prisons? I don’t. But I bet that would make a really good documentary.

Martin Sheen

Martin Sheen is incredibly politically active and has been arrested 66 times for various protests. He’s got some catching up to do, but we know that Charlie is up to the challenge.
