The Splash star, a longtime environmental campaigner, has been leading a demonstration against the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which is being built to transfer crude oil from Canada to refineries on America's Gulf Coast.

She was arrested on Thursday along with 78-year-old Eleanor Fairchild on suspicion of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest after they stood in front of construction equipment.

The pair was taken to the Wood County Jail in Quitman, Texas.

Hannah was previously arrested in August 2011 after protesting against the pipeline at the White House in Washington, D.C.
