    Just last month, actress Lucy Lawless was arrested after protesting aboard an oil-drilling ship in New Zealand. The former Xena: Warrior Princess star snuck aboard the ship with Greenpeace activists, hoping to draw attention to how Arctic oil drilling could accelerate global warming.

    Daryl Hannah has been arrested on more than one occasion while defending her environmental principles, including this past August outside of the White House.

    Hayden Panettiere is also willing to go to jail to protect Mother Nature: she was a wanted woman in Japan back in 2007. The actress was part of a convoy of activists from the U.S. and Australia who paddled out on surfboards to protest the annual slaughter of dolphins and whales by Japanese fishermen. They immediately left the country, but a warrant was issued for their arrest.

    And who's really winning in the Sheen family? Martin Sheen, who's been arrested countless times for anti-nuclear protests.

    See, not everyone's a Tinseltown troublemaker!
