Everybody knows that the Toyota Prius is a big hit in the United States. It’s fuel-efficient, cute, comfy, and, above all, really enjoyable. The time when the cool kids used to make fun of it are long gone – even the prom kings and queens favor it these days. I’m sure you’ve got a girlfriend/buddy/mom driving one. Yep, the Prius is definitely many things, and, as luck has it, it’s also the first choice for many celebrities worldwide. Yeah, that’s right, and, come to think of it, it’s like a perfect choice for them – it’s packed with all the aforementioned great features, plus it’s affordable (hey, that’s still a big plus, even if you’re a famous actor/musician), and got that whole eco-friendly thing going on, that seems to be a big trend in the modern world.
Leonardo DiCaprio driving Toyota Prius
Probably the biggest advocate of the “I love to take care of the world” trend, the somewhat legendary Leonardo DiCaprio proudly owns a Toyota Prius. Being one of Hollywood’s most esteemed actors, DiCaprio takes his passion seriously, and doesn’t just drive a Prius to show off or to make everybody believe he’s a fan of the good cause. He actually made a couple of pretty good documentaries about the devastation people unleash upon the Earth, he flies only commercial, has solar panels in his own house, and helps out those in need all around the world. Yep, Leonardo is a pretty stand-up guy. And he drives a Prius.
Cameron Diaz and her Prius
As y’all know, Ms. Diaz is a big fan of everything new, experimental, and exciting. Back in 2002, she was among the very few celebrities to recognize the worth of Prius. She was a true endorser, and had only nice things to say about the car – she praised the little fella for being extremely fuel-efficient (yep, that’s what it does) – 52 mpg in the city road. Now, that was almost 14 years ago, so 52 were pretty amazing back then. I have to say, guys – the Prius is actually a really solid car, especially if you’re in touch with the eco-friendly way of thinking. It has a big cargo (see those big bags in Cameron’s hands?), and is extremely economical – a pretty great combination, if you ask me.
Sandra Bullock is one of those modest and really nice Hollywood stars that everyone loves and cherishes. She is yet another celebrity, who prefers Toyota’s cozy little ride. By the way, Sandra used to drive a Porsche 911 Turbo, before switching to the affordable Prius, so, that’s a big demonstration of being down-to-earth, huh?
Orlando Bloom with his Prius
That cute British lad, who starred in such big blockbusters, as “The Lord Of The Rings” and “Pirates Of The Caribbean”, is a really nice guy. In 2005, being one of the Oscar presenters, he joined the “Red Carpet Green Cars” campaign, and drove to the event in a Blue Toyota Prius, thus showing his support to the cause. He also gave a speech, claiming, that Hybrid cars, such as the Prius, help in conserving the natural resources, and keeping the planet healthy and happy. Can’t argue with that, can you?
You can say whatever you want about Miley’s behavior these days, but back in 2009 she was a really exemplary young lady. She even switched for the royal Porsche Cayenne to the ecology-friendly Prius, and, in addition, participated in a Toyota-held environment-awareness campaign. And that’s the second celebrity today who deliberately decided to ditch a luxury Porsche for a Prius. Maybe that’s some kind of a tendency among American stars?
Julia Roberts in Toyota Prius
Bradley Cooper with Prius
Among other significant celebrities, who favor the famous Toyota hybrid, we’ve got: Shenae Grimes, the star of CW drama 90210 (the remake), Gwyneth Paltrow, one of the most trend-loving Hollywood actresses ever, who has been driving a Prius for quite a long time, Emily Blunt, Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman (a really big animal rights activist and an eco-friendly woman), Kate Hudson, Kristen Dunst (who is probably the biggest Prius fan), and even Bradley Cooper. Yep, who says you can’t be the idol of millions all around the world, and drive a Prius at the same time? Mr. Cooper says you can. Gotta believe that.
I think, many more celebrities will turn to Toyota Prius in 2016.
