Mel Gibson’s 2011 Smart Fortwo
With a price starting at $12,000, the 2011 Smart Fortwo was the car of choice for Mel Gibson who has been seen whizzing around California in this humble two-seater. This car is not the only one in his collection, perhaps the Braveheart star needed a golf-kart-like solution to running quick errands.
Natalie Portman Lexus SUV
Natalie Portman, the Jerusalem-born 38-year-old, Harvard-University-graduate, superstar actress has starred in hit movies such as Black Swan, Thor, and Star Wars. With a 60-million-dollar net-worth, she is seen driving around in a Lexus RX 350. Current models of this car have an MSRP of $40-50,000 and are known for being quiet and comfortable.
Ryan Gosling’s Toyota Prius
Lala Land the movie grossed a worldwide total of $446.1 million. Ryan Gosling the 39-year-old actor hailing from London, Ontario is seen here with his Prius, but also interestingly chasing his co-star Emma Stone around a grey Prius in a scene from the 2016 movie.
The Notebook star paid around $32,000 to buy the car that gained popularity for being a hybrid-electric vehicle that does 54 miles to the gallon.
Rachel McAdams Red Mini Cooper
Rachel McAdams the 41-year-old Canadian actress known for her roles in Sherlock Holmes, The Notebook, Mean Girls among others.
From her humble beginnings as a theatre performer in school to her Hollywood-star-status, being a millionaire hasn’t prevented her from a simple lifestyle. She has been seen here with a red Convertible Mini Cooper Coupe, that went for $21,000 USD in 2011.
Tom Hanks’s Fiat 126p
Tom Hank’s Fiat 126p was a gift from the Polish town of Bielsko-Biala. His 2016 series of tweets joking about having bought one, caught the attention of Monika Jaskolska who then fund-raised money to actually get him one and ship it to Los Angeles. She then donated the rest of the proceeds to Bielsko-Biała Pediatric Hospital, where she works. The 0.6-liter, 24 horsepower rear-engine car produces a meek 41 Nm of torque.
