This is just in: Daryl Hannah has an opinion.
In fact, the actress and environmental activist has a very definite opinion on ... well, darn near everything. This week, however, she has stern words for her fellow actresses who adopt babies.
And, if Hannah's approval is important to them, they better not hire a nanny.
"As for those actresses who adopt babies, I only approve of the ones who aren't employing someone else to raise them," she tells the London Daily Mail.
A busy acting schedule is no excuse, she tells the newspaper.
"I know how long it takes to make a movie," Hannah says. "If you look at their schedule, you can see how little time they spend at home. It comes down to priorities, and I believe there are times when you have to put your personal life first."
Hannah found fame in the '80s with roles in movies such as "Splash," "Blade Runner," "Roxanne" and "Steel Magnolias." Her highest profile role in recent years has been playing an assassin in the "Kill Bill" movies.
Hannah is perhaps equally famous for her opinions -- especially on environmental protection -- as she is for her acting.
She lives on a ranch in the Rocky Mountains where she provides sanctuary for livestock. She fuels her cars with leftover grease from fast food restaurants. And she maintains her own independent sources of water and power.
Hannah also creates board games. In February, she unveiled Liebrary. In the party game for three to six players (ages 12 and older), players listen to the title and a synopsis of a real book, then write down what they think the first line to that book could be. Points are earned when other players believe that a made up first line is the true one.
Although the 49-year-old actress has no children and tells the Mail she has no immediate plans to adopt any, she has definite views when it comes to parenting.
"I do believe that anyone with two children who wants more should adopt the rest, because there are so many out there who desperately need a home," she tells the newspaper.
