Daryl Hannah was arrested outside the White House during an environmental protest on Tuesday, was cuffed by local police and taken away -- and has photos of her ordeal.

The 50-year-old actress was staging a sit-in protesting the Keystone XL pipeline outside the President’s home when she was arrested, saying that the protestors want to be free from dependence on fossil fuels, according to NBC Washington Bureau.  Hannah also said she hoped that President Barack Obama would not “bow to oil lobbyists.”

Before she was arrested Hannah said: “Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom, and we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”

Hannah refused to move when ordered by the U.S. Park Police and sat down on the sidewalk near the White House, she was then arrested.  Wearing jeans, a white blouse and brown jacket, Hannah was smiling as she was handcuffed by the police.
