hollywood actor James Cromwell In his own words, he considers arrests during animal welfare protests “not a big deal.” “We’ve been arrested a few times and it seems to make a difference. It wouldn’t be much fun otherwise,” the 82-year-old, who glued himself to the counter at a Starbucks in May, told the US. Variety magazine. “There is progress.”
The actor explained that he sees the color of his white skin as a privilege, which he probably owes because he has no worse memories of the arrests. However, a police officer had “drilled” the handcuffs when placing them: “They were angry with us because a police officer’s funeral was taking place at the same time and thought we had deliberately scheduled our appointment at this time.” Sitting in the back seat of a police car with his hands behind his back and no room for his knees, Cromwell said, he was in “extreme pain”.
The actor, who has starred in the films ‘LA Confidential’, ‘The Green Mile’ and ‘The Artist’ and was nominated for an Academy Award for Supporting Actor for his role as a kind-hearted farmer in ‘Babe’ (1995). Starbucks has objected to plant milk prices. Because he finally left the café himself, he escaped arrest. Cromwell said the motion, in which he clamped his hand to a cafe table with super-adhesive, “didn’t hurt at all.” The acetone he used to free himself “is probably not the best thing you can put on your skin” – “It took me about ten minutes to get rid of it.”
