Celebs love to flaunt their cars. Since they’re able to afford cars most of the public can’t, they take pride in standing out and driving around in the best luxury automobiles can offer.
Yet what celebs fail to realize is that they don’t always have someone who's honest enough to say how they look, especially when they're with their cars. Celebs often pose or do ridiculous things around their cars and cameras capture it all.
Famous artists, actors, athletes and other figures have a habit of looking absurd around their cars. We compiled pics of celebs with their cars—some repeat offenders—that only brought embarrassment on themselves.
20 Justin Bieber’s Leopard Print Audi
It didn't seem possible that an Audi R8 could ever come across as undesirable. Yet leave it to Bieber to pull off the impossible.
He, in fact, decked his R8 out with a Leopard wrap, not only serving as a cop magnet but completely ruining a remarkable supercar in the process.
19 Kylie And Kendall Jenner Posing With Mercedes G-Wagon
Celebs love the Mercedes G-Wagon. This photo, which shows both Kylie and Kendall posing on the car, is about as curious as the widespread love for this vehicle.
Kendall’s serious face staring at the camera suggests this car is really important to them, or something—which brings us to our final point, celebs love the Mercedes G-Wagon.
18 DJ Khaled And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
DJ Khaled has some nice cars and strong opinions when it comes to car ownership. “You can want a Hyundai, if that’s what you want,” he shared with Forbes. “Me, I want a Rolls-Royce.”
With his career, he’s able to afford that and more. Then again, we’ve got opinions about his wardrobe.
17 Birdman’s Bentley
The Bentley Continental is a popular choice among celebrities. It has incredible performance without sacrificing aesthetics.
Rapper Birdman thought he would pose with his son next to his car and post the photos on IG, reports Celebrity Cars Blog. At least the two looked like they were having fun doing it.
16 Jeffree Star’s Rolls-Royce
Rolls-Royce has long been the vehicle of choice among stars. If you can afford a Rolls-Royce, then you’ve probably made it.
It’s easy to understand a celeb’s excitement at picking up a brand new Rolls-Royce—especially a Phantom model—but it's hard not to laugh at this photo. Plus, the driver looks like an afterthought.
15 Mario Balotelli’s Camo Bentley
Here’s one way to ruin a Bentley. Soccer player Mario Balotelli has a beautiful Ferrari F12 that sports a classic red paint job.
His Bentley, on the other hand, has an ugly camo wrap on it. In Mario’s defense, he’s not the only one that looks ridiculous standing next to it—everyone does (The Sun).
14 Ariel Winter Next To A Chevy
Here’s an example of where knowing the context of the photo might help. Then again, we can’t imagine what kind of event would have Ariel Winter of Modern Family fame roll up to an event dressed up—or should we say dressed down?—this way.
It’s also awkward that there are people in the background and no one seems to notice her there.
13 Holy Kylie, Batman!
Kylie is at it again. She can’t enough cars in her life, nor can she resist looking cringe-worthy whenever she’s around them—even ones as awesome as the Batmobile.
According to Celebrity Cars Blog, Caitlyn Jenner joined her to check out this iconic ride. Maybe Kylie should’ve left the Ferrari hat at home though.
12 Justin Bieber’s Chromed Out Fisker Karma
It’s hard to take Justin Bieber—or anyone—seriously when standing next to this Fisker Karma.
It’s unclear what’s the worst part—whether it’s a bad car brand, the idea of an electric supercar or that it's wrapped in chrome. What is clear is that Bieber looks silly getting inside of it (The Daily Mail).
11 Arnold Schwarzenegger With A Mercedes G-Wagon
Arnold Schwarzenegger has the misfortune of making the list not once, but twice. That means on two occasions he looked laughable next to cars.
This time, he was not only next to a Mercedes G-Wagon, but actually taking selfies next to it. More than likely Arnold was getting paid money to do it—there’s no other explanation otherwise.
10 David Spade’s Maserati From Adam Sandler
What exactly was David Spade trying to pull off here? We can only hope he was being ironic in snapping this photo with a cap on, holding a bottle of champagne and throwing up a gang sign while in front of a Maserati.
According to The Daily Mail, it was a gift from Adam Sandler.
9 Ludacris Looking Ludicrous Next To Acura NSX
Let’s just hope he’s doing it for a paycheck. As Celebrity Cars Blog points out, Ludacris is a fan of Acuras. In addition to his 1993 Acura Legend, he also has this flashy NSX. He’s even promoting “Good Dad Gang.”
While the movement he’s backing may be good cause, his photoshoot could use some work.
8 Kylie Jenner Opens A Pink Car’s Hood
There’s so much going on in this photo and none of it makes any sense. First of all, this car’s pink paint job is unpleasant to look at. Secondly, she’s opening the hood as if she’s working on the car.
Last but not least, as The Daily Mail reports, she’s promoting Adidas clothing. There’s no reason a car should have to bear this kind of torture, even a pink one at that.
7 will.i.am Shows Off Tesla Roadster In Obligatory Manner
All those Black Eyed Peas hit songs paved the way for will.i.am’s extensive car collection. He not only has some odd tastes in cars though—as we reveal later on—but also finds odd ways to pose with his cars.
It looks as if the artist is saying, “here it is,” or something to that effect by the way he’s posing (EVannex).
6 Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Hummer
No, this is not a shot from a movie set or doctored as far as we know. This is actually Arnold Schwarzenegger driving a Hummer in Los Angeles.
What’s surprising is that the photo isn't from the 2000s, but rather 2018. As if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, it even has “Terminator” stamped above the rear tires (Zimbio).
5 Chloë Grace Moretz And The Paparazzi
Here’s a picture everyone can relate to. While not everyone has paparazzi waiting for them whenever they exit the car, Chloë Grace Moretz got out of hers looking like most of us do.
It looks like she couldn’t even care about someone taking her photos in this state if she wanted to.
4 Gordon Ramsay In Front Of A Range Rover
Gordon Ramsay has made a living off of making exquisite cuisine and roasting other chefs on reality TV. Now it appears the tables have turned.
While Auto Evolution reports he was on his way to an event that brings attention to a good cause, it was the way he posed in front of the Range Rover that incites amusement.
3 Eva Longoria’s Tesla Model X
Some celebs just can’t contain their excitement. Eva Longoria went ballistic when she got her Tesla Model X. As Celebrity Cars Blog reports, she appears to be a big fan of the brand, considering she has a Model S as well.
It’s unusual enough to see someone hugging their car and another thing entirely to witness a lifted leg on top of it.
2 will.i.am Rolls Up In A Cartoon Car
It’s safe to say there’s no other car out there that’s quite like will.i.am’s pictured here.
According to Motor1, it cost the rapper a whopping $900,000 due to all the custom work involved. It looks like something that belongs in Who Framed Roger Rabbit or some other wacky cartoon.
1 Matt LeBlanc Stoked About His Ford Focus RS
So some are going to find this photo of Friends star Matt LeBlanc understandable. He looks really stoked—maybe a little too stoked—about owning a new Ford Focus RS.
There are those out there who understand where LeBlanc is coming from though, and really like the enthusiasm he showed. It’s a great hatchback to own, after all.
