SPLASH star Daryl Hannah hates TV shows so much, she's only just learned about Michael Jackson's child molestation trial.

Eco-friendly Hannah, who lives in a solar-powered home, drives a car powered by vegetable oil and doesn't own a television set, admits Jackson's 2003 arrest is new news to her.

She says, "I liked Michael Jackson's music from when I was a kid, but I don't really know what's going on with him. I didn't know there was a trial right now; I don't know what it's about.

"I really try to keep myself free from being consumed with trivial pop culture and things like that."

But Hannah admits she doesn't keep herself completely isolated from the rest of the world.

She adds, "I do read the newspaper... Occasionally I do (watch television) when I'm in a hotel or something but television, I think, really focuses much more on that sensational type of media."
