Top 10 celebrities and stars who drive cheap, ugly cars

Posted May 1st 2013 11:15AM


What's the point of celebrity wealth and fame if you can't spend crazy amounts of money on expensive things? Flashy cars and outrageous style are simply part of living the fast life in Hollywood, but based on our list of Top 10 stars who drive cheap and ugly cars, it looks like a surprising number of actors, musicians and athletes have been spotted slumming it in vehicles we'd consider far from glamorous (for many reasons).

We'll admit some of these celeb driven cult classics and sleeper cars are kinda cool to most of us as enthusiasts, but then again a BMW E30, Buick Grand National and Ford Taurus SHO are no match for the sleek and sexy new supercars we've come to expect. Even a few oddball choices made it onto the list from Mel Gibson's beat up Toyota Cressida (pictured above) to Justin Timberlake driving a Volkswagen Jetta MKIV, as these famous faces are certainly not riding in style.

It's a strange sight to spot an A-list celeb our cruising around in a cheap or ugly car, but we've got to admit it's probably an affordable and effective way to help shake the pesky paparazzi off your tail.

It's only to remain anonymous in the crowd. As you can see Clint drove the Typhoon to his helicopter pad.

What someone chooses to drive or wear is none of my business and it should be none of yours either.
What's next, what underwear they wear?

The piece misses the whole point. A famous person would keep an old car around because you wouldn't expect Barack Obama or Justine Timberlake to be driving an old heap and he can do things like go to the local convenience store undectected. They need more than one because the photographers won't know which one they are looking for.
