Most celebrities have the luxury of driving cars most of us could never dream of. But before the heady days of stardom most of them started out with cars we’re possibly a bit more accustomed to starting out with ourselves.
Johnny Depp’s first car was a Chevy Nova, a car he is supposed to have actually lived in whilst trying to start his career.
Wayne Rooney, while playing for Everton, was given a free Ford SportKa – brand new but falling slightly short of the arguably more impressive cars he’s used to driving these days.
Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter stardom, gained access to his multimillion pound fortune aged 18 and bought his first car. Was it a Ferrari? Was it a Lamborghini? Nope – it was a spectacularly normal 2007 Fiat Grande Punto! Global fame has certainly not gone to his head!
Keeping with the Harry Potter theme, Rupert Grint who plays Harry’s sidekick Ron Weasley in the film veered slightly away from the norm with his first car – actually not so much a car, it was an ice cream van and allowed him to fulfil a childhood dream.
Some stars are not quite so “normal” when they get their first car. Justin Bieber was given a brand new Range Rover by best mate Usher for his sixteenth birthday. This is before we even get to the Lamborghini given to him by P. Diddy!!
