Academy Award winner Christian Bale is probably more comfortable in a Batmobile than this Toyota Tacoma. Maybe he just spotted the ride, thought it was Kristen Stewart’s, and was just dropping by to say hello. It isn’t Kristen’s cheap, entry level Tacoma but rather the PreRunner V6. If it is Christian’s ride, it probably has some pretty slick options installed that were left over from his three movies as the Black Knight.
Okay blame it on bad lighting. We don’t think Twilight Saga star Robert Pattinson is really driving a pink pickup. Of course if he wanted to he could have one custom painted. The Twilight series grossed $3.3 billion and Pattinson was one of the highest paid actors in 2010 making Fortune 100 list of influential actors. We can’t say what kind of truck he’s driving other than to say it is not a Toyota Tacoma. That Pattison, what a trend setter.
Fresh back from the barber shop, former model, soap opera star on All My Children and star of two video games including Call of Duty WWII (how do you “star” in a video game?), Josh Duhamel is spotted here next to his GMC Sierra. The Sierra is a full-size, light duty truck but is not known as being able to “transform” which may be a drawback for Josh who was in a number of the Transformer movies.
The diminutive (5’1”) Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (AKA Lady Gaga) has chosen a big honkin’ Ford F 150 SVT Lightening performance truck as her ride. This electropop star who has sold over 27 million albums and nearly 150 million singles, is known for her eccentric performances but is down right down-home in her choice of transportation. We think her truck is painted the same color as Robert Pattison’s F 150 which looks pink in bad light. Lady Gaga can get away with a pink truck, Pattison can’t.
Philip J Caputo
Another Transformer alum, Shia Labeouf, has picked Chevrolet’s full-size Silverado pickup truck for tooling around his hometown of Los Angeles. With a big 5.3L V8 and a huge truck bed, you might be able to get Shia to help you move from apartment to apartment. Or maybe not. He might be busy on another project either as an actor or a director. His latest movie is the critical hit Peanut Butter Falcon.
Chevy seems to be the retro pickup of choice among actors and other celebrities. Based on the color, we’re thinking James Denton is sitting on the bed of a circa 1960 Chevrolet. Denton is what you might call a yeoman actor. Best known for his part in the series Desperate Housewives, He has worked on stage and film as well as TV. He’s never had a big, breakout movie but he pays the bills taking full advantage of the opportunities that come his way.
It’s about time RAM made an appearance here and it couldn’t have picked a better celebrity to be seen with. Charlie Daniels is the iconic Southern rock, country, bluegrass musician who has been performing since 1950. When the Devil Came Down to Georgia he found Charlie cruising the back roads in his RAM 1500 with a fiddle of gold in the passenger seat. Trust us, that RAM cabin has enough room for a case of fiddles, guitar or two, and a drum set.
Best known for his role as Sergeant Antonio ‘Poke’ Espera in HBO’s Generation Kill, Jon Huertas’s retro ride is a two-tone Ford F 100 from the 1960s. While the Iraq Invasion of 2003 was the background for his most popular role, Huerta has a heart for the classics as well playing in the 1998 classic Why Do Fools Rush In? The old Ford workhorse just seems to fit John’s work ethic. Reliable and understated!
Colin Farrell (Ford Bronco)
Best 10 News
Irish born, Golden Globe winner and nominee Colin Farrell has an impressive list of film roles including Alexander the Great, Minority Report, and Tigerland, but is probably best known for his rough and tumble, sex, lies, and video tape private life. His choice of a Ford Bronco is probably a good one. When equipped right, the Bronco can take on even the toughest trails and Farrell has bounced down a lot of personal tough trails.

No that’s not a pickup truck. It’s a 1949 Chevy Curb Master, aluminum body step-van and that’s Rutledge Wood, original host of Discovery’s Top Gear and renowned automotive commentator behind the wheel looking like the proud owner he is. He bought it to be “the family hot rod hauler” which explains why it is equipped with a Chevy performance 5.6L LS3 engine that throws down 525 horsepower. That’s what happens when you bring your work home.
Prince Jackson, oldest son of singer Michael Jackson, recently graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. We’re not sure what’s going on here. That’s a Ford F 150 but it still has the dealer vanity tag on it and we are wondering why Prince is tanking it up. Maybe it was a graduation gift? Currently Prince has announced what his plans are to use his new degree in entrepreneurship.
Jesse James, the tattooed custom bike builder, gun shop owner, desert racer, and overall bon vivant doesn’t just like pickup trucks, he builds them. Very special “trophy trucks” like the heavily modified Silverado shown in the photo. Jesse and his long time copilot race in off-road endurance events like the MasterCraft Safety Tecate SCORE San Felipe 250 and you don’t win those without messing up some part of your ride. Fortunately, Jesse knows how to put it back together again
Here we have Ben Affleck and then fiancé Jennifer Lopez approaching their new 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup. They were in Georgia at the time when Affleck called the local Dodge dealer looking for “a loaded Dodge Ram off-road, four-wheel drive pickup truck.” The dealer had one and 20 minutes after the couple arrived, they bought the 2500 for sticker price. A few days later they applied for a gun permit at the local courthouse. The Boston Globe, Affleck’s hometoen paper, wondered if the couple had become born-again rednecks.
As a star of the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Scott Disick doesn’t really have a normal day job. However, he does have a canary yellow Ferrari 458 that apparently he parks outside his home to increase curb appeal. But when it’s time to get groceries at Ralph’s, Scott opts for his shiny new, and far more practical Ford F 150. Of course, it’s not just any old F 150, it’s Fords off-road monster Raptor. Maybe reality is setting in.
We don’t know if this is the truck award winning, country western, Tim McGraw had in mind when he recorded Truck Yeah but this retro Chevy C/K crew cab, 4×4 is a sweet ride. The precursor of the Silverado, the C/K was the full size Chevy truck from 1959 to 2002. GMC had a version of it as well that eventually morphed into the Sierra. So, like Tim sings “if you like it up loud and you’re hillbilly proud. Truck Yeah!
This may or may not be Arnie’s latest truck. We don’t see any Mercedes-Benz logo on the steering wheel but the double stitch accent stitching on the dash suggests it might be. The former body builder, actor, and Governor of California decided he needed a six ton Mercedes-Benz Unimog truck to cruise the streets of Santa Monica. Mercedes-Benz says ” the Unimog range of cars is perfect for: ‘The most extreme, arduous tasks, including: fighting forest fires, performing rescue operations during catastrophes or maintaining power supply lines.’ It’s also the vehicle of choice for a number of foreign armies. Well, he did say “I’ll be back.”
YouTube – Luke Bryan
We can’t say for sure which truck country singer Luke Bryan is in but we would bet it’s his new, optioned out, Chevy Silverado LTZ. You know, the one with the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine with DFM 8-speed automatic transmission. It doesn’t really matter. Bryan is best known for singing That’s My Kind of Night which describes every redneck male’s dream date and involves beer, country chicks, pickup trucks and skinny dipping.
YouTube – Lee Brice
We believe the truck country singer Lee Brice is driving here is the 1990s Ford F 150 used in his heart-breaking song I Drive Your Truck. Inspired by a true event involving a Medal of Honor awardee killed in Afghanistan and his father, Brice’s version is about the loss two between brothers. The music video should not be viewed without an ample supply of Kleenex. The F 150 plays a major role in the video and depicts how “average” young rural drivers might have left it the last time they drove it.
When you own a Rolls Royce and a Bugatti, do you really need a retro Ford Bronco? Apparently that’s true for Simon Cowell of Britain’s Got Talent and the American versions, America’s Got Talent and American Idol. His classic 1966 1st generation Bronco looks to be in excellent shape and lovingly restored. All Broncos of that era had a 4×4 powertrain, and an inline six-cylinder engine borrowed from the Ford Fairlane. The Bronco competed against the early Jeep CJ. Cowell was spotted cruising around Hollywood in this prime specimen of a time gone by.
You either love him or hate him. Ted Nugent is the old rocker turned right wing commentator who loves going deep into the bush to kill and eat the things he finds there. He’s also made something of a mini-business of having vintage Ford Broncos tricked out, painted like a zebra, and selling them complete with his autograph somewhere on the exterior. If you need to go deep in the bush this lifted 1979 Bronco with the serious rubber and a 4×4 powertrain is just the ticket.
We don’t know which of Toby Kieth’s several Ford trucks he’s sitting in here, but having been a spokesperson for Ford trucks for several years, we’re pretty sure he’s not behind the wheel of a Toyota Tacoma. Toby is an iconic country music performer who has taken the Jay Leno route and used some of his cash to buy cars and trucks. One of his favorites is a Ford F 150 Harley Davidson special edition. This ride was targeted at HD riders who wanted a matching truck to haul around their two wheel drive. No word if Toby has a hog to go with his truck.
Channing Tatum, star of 21 Jump Street, White House Down, and 22 Jump Street, plunked down $50,000 for this 1957 small block V8 Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck. No word on if it’s stick or retrofitted with “Automatik.”It is sweet, but you really have to be into retro to appreciate these old workhorses. This one has been beautifully restored and Tatum has been spotted squiring around attractive ladies in the front seat, so who knows, maybe it’s also a “chick magnet.”
Rocky Ridge Trucks
Country western singer (mostly) Kid Rock, seems to be hooked on pickup trucks the way so many country singers are. But unlike Tim McGraw’s vintage Chevy C/K, Rock has opted for a new, customized, tricked out, GMC Sierra 1500. Black and white is the theme for the exterior including the custom black bull bars and a custom black “Detroit Cowboy” badge on the tailgate. Inside it’s all leather featuring embroidered spread eagles on the backs of the seats. The Kid knows you can’t really Rock out on country unless you’re driving a pickup truck.

HGTV star and Canada’s leading authority on DIY renovation projects Bryan Baeumler prefers a Nissan as his choice for a pickup. And for good reason. In 2017 Nissan Canada announced they were sponsoring Bryan and his costar wife Sarah and as part of that deal they gave the Baeumlers a 2017 Nissan TITAN XD Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel and a 2017 Nissan Armada. Now that’s a pretty sweet perk. Actually it’s a natural partnership. Ryan has used Nissan trucks in his construction business because of their durability, fuel efficiency and affordability. Now he has a new one.

Former veterinarian assistant and current star of Heartland, Amber Marshall has never owned a car in her life. Her first vehicle was a GMC Jimmy when she was 16. Today she drives a 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab diesel, a big ass truck with a payload of over 2400 lbs. The reason she went big is she hauls a bunch of animals around. She has three big dogs that go everywhere she does and they get the folded down seat area in the cab. In addition she’s got a live-in horse trailer that she tows on a regular basis and the Ram diesel provides the torque she needs. Amber says that trucks best express her independent personality
Twitter – Jake Owen
Jake Owen is yet another country western star who is in love with pickups. This pic shows him and his daughter cruising their farm in an Chevrolet LZ Silverado (another favorite pick of the CW set). He says he got this big honking truck because his daughter wanted chickens on the farm. We are not sure of the connection between owning a pickup and a herd of chickens but what the hey. Jake is probably best known for his realistic single about a dad who has gone to the mall called Where the F**K Did I Park My Truck.
Scott Cann stared in Ocean’s Eleven, Varsity Blues, and most notably, Gone in 60 Seconds. You would expect someone whose big role was stealing a Porsche would be driving some speedster off the set. Not Scott. His choice is this beautifully restored 1939 ¾ ton Ford pickup. It sports a V8 engine and with a curb weight of 2752 lbs. it needs every horse. This blue beauty is not just a show car. Cann has been spotted grocery shopping in this vintage ride.
When Grammy Award winning musician, singer-songwriter John Mayer was professionally sidelined by throat surgery, he decided to “travel the country and listen.” To go on that jaunt, he purchased a $500,000, go-anywhere, live-anywhere, 4×4, 7 ton brute, EarthRoamer XV-LTS. Built on the chassis if a Ford F 550, this luxury RV is powered by a turbocharged 6.7L V8 Power Stroke Diesel that puts out 630 lb-ft of torque. John’s new ride can comfortably accommodate eight people and includes amenities like a bathroom, kitchenette, shower, storage cabinets, and an over-cab king-size bed.
With a reputation as the ultimate macho man, former professional wrestler turned actor and producer Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) could only drive a rugged pickup truck. His choice is this big Ford F 150 with custom air scoops and fog lamps. Based on where the hood is coming up to on The Rock (6’5”), we’re guessing the Ford has also had a 4 to 6 inch lift kit installed as well. Johnson is probably best known for his WWF career which he only retired from (he performed par-time) in 2019. His film career blasted off with his part in the Fast and Furious
Just Jared JrKristen Stewart was the highest-paid actress in the world in 2010 and 2012 and her movies have grossed over $4.6 billion. So, what is she doing behind the wheel of an older, entry level Toyota Tacoma that lists for about $16,300? This Tacoma is most likely a four banger with a five-speed manual transmission kicking out a whopping 159 hp. Either she’s the most practical (and frugal) millionaire actor/director in Hollywood, or she just grabbed one of the crew’s rides to make a Starbucks run.
Of course Clint Eastwood drives a truck. What did you expect, a Gran Torino? This fabled actor, filmmaker, director, and politician is kind of the man’s man icon that absolutely would want to strap on a working man’s ride. Besides he owns a refurbished dairy farm near Carmel, CA and needs a truck to negotiate the renovation projects he has going on there. When he’s not in a truck, he’s usually in a helicopter flying back to Los Angeles. Clint can not only handle a six-speed but, as a licensed helicopter pilot he can dump the collective.

We’re hoping two-time Academy Award winner, actor, director, filmmaker Sean Penn doesn’t light up that cigarette until he finishes filling the tank and clears the pump. It’s hard to tell from the angle but the taillight and “T” suggests that this ride is yet again another Toyota Tacoma. There must be some kind of superstar sales guy assigned to Hollywood studios. At any rate, Sean Penn is another star that you can’t imagine driving anything other than a pickup. Rough, tough, and aggressive.
If truck makers want to promote the idea that pickups are tough, hardworking and aggressive they couldn’t find a better poster girl than free style skier Devin Logan. Winner of Olympic Silver in the first slopestyle event at Sochi in 2014. Two years before her medal winning performance recklessly blasting down the slopes, she suffered a knee injury involving a torn ACL and MCL and two microfractures, requiring surgery. Guts and determination brought her back. So naturally she drives a pickup. But once again, it’s a Toyota Tacoma.
John Goodman is a big guy (6’2”) and it’s not surprising that he’s chosen the bestselling pickup in America, the Ford F 150, to tool around in. Goodman is probably best known for his TV role as Roseanne’s husband but he’s done a ton of memorable films as well, including The Big Lewbowski, Coyote Ugly, and O Brother Where Art Thou. One has wonder what John has hidden under that color coordinated tarp on the bed?
Now we’re talking. Glen Plake may consider himself as Skier Trash but he was named the pioneer of extreme skiing in America by ESPN. When Glen drove this circa 1960 Chevy to the levee he apparently found it frozen and covered in snow which is just the way Glen likes it. Even this old Chevy workhorse of a truck can’t handle the snow like Plake. What would you expect from a kid who grew up in Lake Tahoe skiing Heavenly Valley?
