11 Celebrities Who Refuse To Drive
In terms of the lists and various Top 10s we offer on the day to day at Fame10, never has one come with such odd intrigue. Sure, the argument is easily made: when you’re a celebrity, you don’t have to drive–people drive you. However, this list is full of anomalies and shockers of the “Say, what…!?” variety? This list calls for a strange partition of men leading the way to some of the most independent women who have ever lived. And still, none of these people like to drive. And how about all the British guys whose names start with R? Coincidence?
11. Russell Brand
There are people who are probably comforted by the fact that Russell Brand doesn’t like to drive. Yeah, we’re OK with the thought of a sober Brand on the roads, but doesn’t it always seem like this guy is thinking of something else while he’s tending to a task? The truth is, Russell never had the desire to drive being born and raised just outside of London, and enjoying really good public transportation into his formative years. Yes, he did take up driving a bit later in life, but mostly to have it as a skill set for playing various roles, or in the even he needs to bug out. He began the driver’s education process at age 36, about 20 years after most people. He has tried driving in Los Angeles to poor result, including citations for speeding, and driving on the wrong side of the road.
10. Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson is another Brit who simply isn’t in favor of getting behind the wheel. And for those who have never been to Los Angeles, driving in town can be one of the most life threatening decisions you’ll ever make. It is not for the faint of heart. Rob still gave it a go after settling into the United States to enjoy some career ventures, but he explained his driving lessons came independently–self taught–and his tutors were none other than Los Angelenos laying on some pretty heavy horns. Robert is another of the mindset that driving is a good skill set to possess, but if you’re gonna meet him for lunch somewhere, he’d love it if you’d pick him up and do the driving. Perhaps it’s not that Robert “won’t drive,” but he really prefers not to. Again. A little jaunt around Los Angeles, and you’d understand his plight.
