Despite publicly advocating positive change to enhance greener, more sustainable living, Leonardo DiCaprio and Arnold Schwarzenegger are amongst a bunch of high profile Hollywood stars seemingly ignoring the advice they preach.
According to research carried out by Select Car Leasing, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford, James Cameron, John Travolta and Arnold Schwarzenegger are amongst a group of high profile Hollywood stars whose positive words on climate change may actually be empty promises.
DiCaprio, for example, used his private jet six times in six weeks, famously using it to travel from Cannes to New York to collect an environmental award. Meanwhile, aircraft-loving Travolta operates his own mini airport at his home and drives the 14mpg Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Schwarzenegger, one of the most carbon-emitting celebrities identified in the research, drives the fuel-guzzling Bugatti Veyron Vitesse, military-grade Hummer H1 and flies in a Gulfstream III jet.
He apparently often meets The Terminator director James Cameron for a ride on their various motorbikes. Cameron owns a Ducati 848 EVO and three Harley Davidson’s. And despite also driving the Tesla Model S, he offsets his fossil fuel savings by driving his Ford GT.
Similarly, Harrison Ford is another Tesla driver but he also likes flying around in his Cessna 208B Grand Caravan at a staggering 334 gallons of fuel per hour.
However, some Hollywood celebrities are sticking to their climate change promises. Prominent environmental advocate Natalie Portman drives around in a Toyota Prius, former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan appears to stick to his environmentally friendly BMW Hydrogen 7, while Meryl Streep owns both these cars, presumably driving them depending on her mood for the day!
