Did You Know These A-List Celebrities Own Luxury Cars But Don’t Own A Drivers License?
What is it with luxury cars and celebrities? They seem to love buying them, and we’re all ready to lap up any news about their car choices. For some A-listers, having an enviable car collection it is not just a show of wealth but a real passion for cars. Take for example, Jerry Seinfeld who had a huge collection of Porsche vehicles. However, there’s also the kind of celebs who do not like driving as much but sure do like to buy high-end cars for the world to see. Here are some of the most prominent celebrities who do not have a license or didn’t have one before they bought their first cars:
Yes, the little boy who was once a YouTube wonder, acquired a huge amount of wealth at a young age. His success in the showbiz was a stark contrast to the results of his written test for his license. Yes, he failed, so the best he could do was sit in the backseat and yell at other drivers, passing by his car. He was highly frustrated, and we assume he cleared the test the second time because he now has a number of cool cars that make his garage drool-worthy with models like an Audi, a Mercedes, and a Lamborghini, among others. We are glad that he is so successful now that it doesn’t really matter that he couldn’t drive at one point in time.
By now, we are all familiar with the rags-to-riches story of author J.K. Rowling. Though the billionaire author can boast of possessing some of the most luxurious cars in the world today, apparently, driving is not her thing. She prefers to have a chauffeur and confessed that her lack of spatial awareness is the reason she is not good at operating any kind of machine. Well, honestly, who wants to bother with driving when they can imagine all kinds of magical things in their heads and make amazing stories out of it. Also, with the amount of wealth that she has, she can surely afford to pamper herself a bit and delegate the work of driving to someone else.
There are men and women in the industry who are well-known car aficionados, and then there are men like Ricky Gervais. Apparently, the funny guy from England doesn’t drive. The irony is that a few years back, he even did a commercial for Audi and actually got an Audi A3 for compensation. Well, judging by his earnings, he wouldn’t have a problem in hiring a driver to take him around in his sweet ride. The well-known car show, Top Gear, was once looking for a host, and they even considered Ricky Gervais. However, he told them that he didn’t drive at all since he didn’t have a license.
The female rapper is quite a sensation in the world of music right now. Her thundering success has also ensured that she can afford literally whatever she wants which explains cars like a Lamborghini Aventador, a Maybach, and a Bentley in her garage. But did you know that this infamous rapper cannot drive? Well, she is from New York City where most people use the subway rather drive around in their own cars, so you can’t quite blame her, right?
Here is another A-lister from Hollywood who doesn’t like to drive. She does have a thing for Ford and Chrysler cars and has many of those. Yet, when it comes to driving, she says she is scared of the paparazzi. The very thought of driving around while a number of photographers follow you is scary for her. Hence, she prefers being driven around. With a $100-million net worth, that is not to difficult to achieve!
It is funny to know that celebrities who are worth millions have plenty of luxury cars in their possession but either doesn’t know how to drive or failed their driver’s test. But if you think about it, it sounds about right; being celebrities, they prefer sitting in the backseats of their cars away from the glares of camera flashes to keep their very public life a bit private. We can’t really blame them for trying. Hence, in their world, not having a license does not matter much.
