Perhaps best known for her role as the blonde mermaid in Ron Howard’s film, “Splash,” Daryl Hannah appeared in many films throughout the 1980’s, including “Roxanne,” “Blade Runner“ and “Wall Street.”
However, unlike many beautiful Hollywood actresses, Hannah not only lives a life off the grid, but also in harmony with many things, not in the least of which is horses.
In one of her web videos, Hannah demonstrates the safety of her vegetable oil-powered car by licking the gas cap, as her solar-powered ranch hums along quietly. But one thing she is not quiet about is environmental issues.
She has been arrested many times for her protests of mountaintop removal, urban farm demolition and the planned Keystone Oil Pipeline.
But for all of her activism, it seems that the actress feels most at home among her horses.
