Perhaps best known for her role as the blonde mermaid in Ron Howard’s film, Splash, Daryl Hannah has appeared in many films throughout the 1980s 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.
Driving her vegetable oil powered car and demonstrating the safety of the fuel, one of her web videos shows her licking the gas cap. And her solar powered ranch hums along quietly, but about environmental issues, Hannah is not quiet.
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.
