Celebs Who Claim They're Green but Guzzle Gas

Posted by Fara Kearnes on October 26, 2006 1:06 PM |

Brad Pitt picJulia Roberts, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and other Hollywood stars usually tut-tut the public for driving gas guzzling vehicles while they tool around in fuel-economy cars like the hybrid Toyota Prius or the electric Tango.

But a new TMZ report shows the hypocrisy of these stars as they hop on their private jets and cruise to appearances, weddings, and film shoots - while burning upwards of 9,400 gallons of fuel (LA to Africa) in a few hours. So much for saving the planet ...

Some cases they pointed out:

Julia Roberts - On the ground: Roberts drives a Prius, which gets (at best) 60 miles to the gallon, shaving 30 miles off a normal car's mpg. I

n the air: Chicago/LA, 1,749 miles in a private jet, the route she took with Rupert Everett while shooting "My Best Friend's Wedding."

Gas guzzled: 2,100 gallons of jet fuel.

Prius Penance: Julia would have to drive 30,000 miles, or roughly once around the earth and then some to even out her consumption in the air.

Brad Pitt - On the ground: Eco-champ Brad is yet another Prius-lover, and he reportedly has several hybrids in his stable.

In the air: Los Angeles/Namibia, 9,400 miles in a private jet.

Gas guzzled: 11,000 gallons of jet fuel.

Prius penance: Brad burned enough fuel to take a Prius to the moon.

BUT THERE WAS GOOD NEWS! Leo DiCaprio drive a Toyota Prius too but he flies commercial (unless he positively must fly private because of scheduling.) Leo's a true green eco-champ.
