Daryl Hannah quits movies to save world

dhannah_environ.jpgDaryl Hannah has decided to quit the entertainment business so that she can devote her time to saving the planet, with Living Neon Dreams being her last role.

“I am more focused on trying to save the planet and other living creatures than on my career at the moment. I won’t be doing anything for a while because I’m focused on environmental issues. I live in a solar-powered house built with eco-friendly materials and things salvaged from a 19th century barn. I also drive a 100 per cent bio-diesel car. I try to follow this ideal through all aspects of my life.”

You know what life she should especially be trying to save? Her own. From me. There’s nothing I hate more than pretentious celebrities running around preaching about how they’re doing their part to save the world so everybody else should too. A hundred dollars says that Daryl’s “solar-powered house built with eco-friendly materials” is a gigantic mansion that cost more resources to build than most people could produce in their entire lifetime. I’m not saying that everybody should go out and start cutting down rain forests, but it’s a little easier to be an environmentalist when you have hundreds of millions of dollars and don’t have to worry about getting a second job at the local factory to send your kid to college.
