Worm saviour Daryl Hannah

'Kill Bill' star Daryl Hannah has revealed she would save her worms if an environmental disaster struck

Daryl Hannah would save her worms if an environmental disaster struck.

The 'Kill Bill' star says that if her surroundings came under threat the wriggly creatures would be one of the first things she would rescue.

She said: "I would save my critters, seeds, eggs, medicinal spores and worms."

The star - who is a prolific campaigner for environmental causes - also said she despises the word "green" because she thinks it is pretentious.

She said: "I can't stand the word 'green'. It seems that it's become a pedantic, smug, judgmental word that is unrelated to the rest of one's life and is being so overused as a marketing tool that it has no credibility."

The 47-year-old actress - who recently joined the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to film a documentary about the fight against whale poaching - also revealed she wakes up in a sweat thinking about the world's mounting problems.

She added to Britain's The Guardian newspaper: "We're in the midst of a massive population explosion, a credit crisis, there's climate chaos, poverty, unprecedented loss of species, loss of open wild space, resource depletion and growing dead zones and yet we still act slowly, if at all.

"What's wrong with us?"
