Actress Daryl Hannah—known for her roles in Kill Bill, Wall Street and Splash—was arrested Tuesday morning at the Keystone XL protests currently taking place at the White House.

“We want to be free from our dependence on foreign oil and fossil fuels. If Obama approves of this Keystone XL pipeline… it would be a disaster. These pipelines, it’s not ‘if’ it’s going to spill, it’s ‘when’ it’s going to spill,” Hannah told ABC News prior to her arrest. “We cannot risk these precious resources and we cannot shackle ourselves to this type of destructive energy future when we have solutions available to us. We have American-made, American-grown, clean safe energy.”

Hannah is one of the nearly 600 protestors to be arrested so far. Thousands more are expected to be arrested in the coming week.
