Celebrities live a life of glitz and glamour and that’s an idea that most of us ordinary folks like to believe. They earn millions of dollars and at the same time have all the resources to help them keep up with the image of being superstars. We imagine them living in mansions with butlers, and riding in limousines or being driving around in the swankiest of cars.
But not all celebrities like to live this life of excess; some choose to live and buy simple, making do with less expensive pleasures, just like the stars on this list who drive modest vehicles not based on how wealthy or flashy they are. Some, who are billionaires, drive cars that are not even worth more than $50,000, so as to meet just the basic needs! Check out our list of famous celebrities who picked practicality and safety over high-end accessories and features when buying an automobile…
There was a scene in Pretty Woman where Vivian, Julia Roberts’ character, taught Edward – the character portrayed by actor Richard Gere, how to properly drive a 1989 Lotus Esprit SE. Fans would assume that a Hollywood A-list actress like Roberts would drive a fancy and expensive car, but, we’re sorry to disappoint you! The star’s practicality is on point with her Mercedes Benz GL320.
The vehicle, although manufactured by a luxury car-maker, is perfect for taking the kids to school and dropping them off for their soccer practices. Roberts is a mother to three school-age children, twins Phinnaeus and Hazel, and Henry, and she’s not shooting, she loves to be a hand’s on mom.
