Why Don't Celebrities Hire Drivers?

Why Don't Celebrities Hire Drivers?

Orlando Bloom just issued a statement about his car accident last night saying that he called for help immediately, is grateful that his two female passengers, one of whom is a childhood friend, were only minorly hurt and thanking the medical workers who cared for them. Even if Orlando's accident wasn't alcohol related, it was still late at night and there were photographers everywhere. It sure seems like a lot of these celebrity car accidents could be avoided if they would just hire drivers. What do you think — why don't the stars have their own personal chauffeurs?

I know they ask for it when they get celebrity status, but the paparazzi should leave them alone enough so they can at least drive! I love driving; I don't know what I'd do if I wasn't allowed.

Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but from what I understand, the celebrities do not like drivers knowing what they are up to. They do drugs, they go to shady places, hang out with people they aren't supposed to be seen with, get wasted, etc (you can only imagine) and they don't like someone knowing exactly what they are up to, where they are going or who they are with.... so they drive.

Because they're people too? Being famous doesn't make a car crash worse. Obviously it was an accident, why should be have to hire a driver because he's a celebrity? The question makes no sense. Treat them normal, let them BE normal.

i think celebrities always drive themselves is because they want to be known as normal-ish people. who drive themselves places, instead of having their own drivers. also, i think that if i were a celebrity and i had a driver or limo and whatnot, i would come off as arrogant.

they just want to be normal! I would hate having someone drive me around everywhere. and accidents happen to everyone, we just don't get photographed and talked about when it happens to us. poor orlando, its not a habit of his (unlike some other stars...that's a different story), so give the quy a break.

When celebrities know they are going out and will be drinking, they should hire drivers, or at least take cabs home. Obviously anyone going out drinking shouldn't drive, but at least celebrities have the cash to hire a driver. But in this case, Orlando Bloom wasn't drunk, and got cut off. Lots of people get into accidents and fender benders in LA because there are such crazy drivers here. How would hiring a driver have helped?

Why should they have to? Just because they are famous doesn't mean they have to give up driving.

Celebrities are still people, they have the right to drive around if they want to... Given that they're not thinking they can shirk off the responsibilities they have (Celebs with multiple DUIs really should get drivers, but such in the case as Orli above, I think it's unfair to compare him with Brit or Paris). What needs to stop is all the paps making it so dangerous for them on the roads!

LOL at everyone, I now have this image in my head: Orlando and his friends driving through LA (in LOTR outfit) when a vicious gang of paparazzi ambush them. So they all jump out get out the bow and arrow and say "Leave, or we will inflict a terrible pain on you. These pieces of wood hurt." Then when they drive off, Orlando says "They be ma bitches." and that was my vision, albeit quite scary.
