For example, Alicia Silverstone, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Bill Maher, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Bacon are all quick to tell reporters about the responsible nature of their hybrid vehicles. Below are five of the most popular cars driven by celebrities, including which celebrities are driving them!
Gerard Butler, a Scottish actor, became a household name in 2006 with the movie 300. Now that the hunky actor has the eyes of the world on him, he dodges paparazzi in a black Range Rover!

Many celebrities prefer something a little more compact than the Range Rover SUV. When actor B.J. Novak drives to the set of his popular NBC show, “The Office,” he drives his black Audi A5 coupé. Jumping over to the FOX Network, “Glee” actress Diana Agron can be seen driving to the set or stopping for coffee in her Audi A4.

While Dwight Howard is one of the most popular stars in the NBA, his sports celebrity doesn’t touch that of a fellow Porsche lover. David Beckham is as international soccer star and owner of a customized Porsche 911. His equally famous wife, Victoria “Posh” Bechham, can also be seen in a Porsche, sporting her own Porsche 911 Cabriolet Turbo. Both Beckhams had these vehicles custom-made to their specifications to maximize personal enjoyment.
Jay Leno could likely be mentioned under most if not all of these car headings. He has a car collection that rivals any seen in Hollywood history. Among this beautiful collection is a Mercedes SLR McLaren, and an Anglo-German ride where the doors lift straight up into the air for greatest coolness!
Austin Powers star Verne Troyer, whose character “Mini-Me,” stole the show when he was on-screen, steals looks around Los Angeles in his specially customized and fitted Mercedes-Benz CLK. Pharrel Williams, a super producer and fashion line entrepreneur, is on the same page as Mr. Leno. He can be seen driving in style with a 5.5L V8 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren with a price tag of just under a half million dollars.
