Over the weekend Toyota held the 35th edition Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach, CA.
Out of all 13 celebrities racing, "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer seemed to be doing well in the qualifying round until the race took a turn for the worse when he hit a tire barrier and flipped his blue Scion tC. Luckily, Stephen was able to walk away from the crash without a scratch but from the looks of it his Scion tC will definitely need of a little TLC.
Former UFC Champ Tito Ortiz was doing a practice run recently for the 2011 “Fueled by Fame” Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race when he smashed up his Scion. The first impact happened when Tito drove the car into a sidewall and then hit the rear bumper of another car that was driven by Kimora Lee Simons' boyfriend Djimon Hounsou.
Luckily both Tito and Djimon were not hurt. The Scion on the other hand has definitely seen better days.
Just recently, our friend Brett Berk, a contributor for Vanity Fair had the pleasure of sitting down with actor Bradley Cooper. You might be asking yourself why would we care. Well, we care because this interview was a little different than the other interviews Bradley's been doing lately. In this interview there was one topic and one topic only: Cars.
It's no secret that the characters Bradley plays have great taste in cars but the real question is does Bradley share the same love off screen in his real life? According to his interview with Vanity Fair, Bradley confesses to owning a 2007 Toyota Prius, a 2004 G55 AMG Mercedes as well as a Vespa. Yes, a scooter. And he's in love with it! He told Brett "I cannot stop riding that Vespa. I dream about it when I’m away." Now that's what we call true love.
Towards the end of the interview, Bradley told Brett his dream car is the BMW Z8 but that he doesn't have any future plans on replacing the G55 or the Prius for it. Unfortunately he probably wouldn't replace the Vepsa for it either. We get the feeling he'll never replace the Vespa.

Last weeks "Guess Who" was Emily Blunt getting into her Prius. Tough one considering so many celebs drive Prius' around!
Kate Hudson was recently spotted picking up her son Ryder after school in her Toyota Prius. With another little one on the way now she might have to upgrade to something with a little more room. We wouldn't mind seeing Kate running around in the new Porsche Cayenne hybrid. What would you suggest?
