Actress and activist Daryl Hannah holds court on the cover of the newest issue of E Magazine to talk about her protests of mountaintop coal mining in West Virginia. Hannah, best known onscreen for her work as a mermaid in Splash and an assassin in the Kill Bill films and offscreen for her off-grid home, tree-sitting, and biodiesel-powered vehicle, told the magazine that her first visit to the mining site "made me feel ill. I almost can't explain how hard it is to assimilate and process the moonscape that is left behind." See the rest of the interview at E Magazine.

Caifornia's Shambala Preserve, owned by actress Tippi Hedren, is home to 100 animals --including two tigers formerly owned by Michael Jackson--reportedly ignored a mandatory evacuation order issued in response to the state's wildfires; Hedren says, "We have a very, very good plan with the fire department. We will stay where we are, let the fire department do their job and we will do ours." Meanwhile, actress Linda Blair's World Heart Foundation, which rescues animals from Los Angeles streets and shelters, is also preparing to move out; Blair called for volunteers to help transport pups when the order comes down. "In terms of the evacuation itself--we are on pins and needles waiting for the word," she says. (Via Ecorazzi)
