Much like Daryl Hannah before her, Michelle Rodriguez’s much-publicized plans to join the Sea Shepherd on their upcoming anti-whaling campaign in the Antarctic have been cancelled.
Video of her indicating as much first surfaced from the red carpet during the Sea Shepherd benefit in LA a few weeks back. A recent article on Treehugger talking about her “Eco Maverick” award from Opportunity Green also mentions her absence this year.
“I’m not going to make it to this run at the end of the year,” she said in a video by The Fashion Patrol. “I have to go work. I have to go make some money — because I want to do three months. I don’t want to go for a month and sit around and look cute. I want the full experience and in order to do the full three-month run, I’ve got to have some cash. I’m just bummed that it’s not going to be this year and will be next.”
