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

Wednesday, August 31 by

Eddie Furlong

The Terminator 2 star was arrested for freeing lobsters from a supermarket tank. When approached by officers, he proceeded to repeatedly turn around in circles. Yes. He was intoxicated. But given that he is a vegetarian, I’m counting this as activism.

Michael Moore

Admit it. Love him or hate him, if Michael Moore showed up at your place of business and wouldn’t stop talking, you’d have his taken away too. He’s scaring the girls, and now the party’s over.

Susan Sarandon

Sarandon found herself arrested while protesting the police shooting of an unarmed African immigrant named Amadou Diallo. “If we’re not here today, then we’re saying that what happened is acceptable and normal, and I think that does a disservice to the other police,” said the Oscar-winning actress. “I think it’s time we focus on this issue, and racial profiling is not acceptable. I don’t think we want to be made safe at the expense of our civil liberties.” The four officers were later acquitted of all charges.

Danny Glover

Not only is he awesome in the Lethal Weapon movies, but Danny Glover is also an outspoken activist. In fact, he was arrested just last year for protesting outside the Maryland headquarters of food management giant, Sodexo Inc. Because seriously, have you tried their mozzarella sticks? They taste like buuuuuuuuuuuullshit.
