Susan Sarandon

The Oscar-winning actress has built a career on playing outspoken characters, so it's no surprise she's always quick to speak out about political or social issues as well. The self-proclaimed liberal has supported a wide variety of causes, including the 1999 protest over the police shooting of unarmed West African immigrant Amadou Diallo in New York City. Sarandon, who was arrested along with hundreds of others outside NYPD headquarters, helped draw national attention to the injustice.
