As often as we see celebrities flaunting their money with lavish purchases, many have proven to be frugal as well as environmentally conscious. More than a handful of celebrities, such as actors Tom Hanks and Owen Wilson, reportedly own a Toyota Prius, making it one of the most popular green cars for celebrities. Even President Barack Obama gets in on saving the earth, driving a Ford Escape Hybrid before moving to the White House. What better way is there to show you care about the environment than buying one of these celebrity cars?
Of course there is still a great deal of luxury that can be had from "normal" cars with celebrities picking upscale rides like the Cadillac Escalade, Chrysler 300 and Mercedes-Benz CLK Convertible. Others prefer the classic muscle cars, or the classics that have been revived with modern versions like the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Charger.
Though you may not live in a multi-million-dollar mansion and make blockbuster films for a living, by picking one of these affordable rides, you too can live like a celebrity, or at least drive like one.
