^^^^ 6K miles is actually quite alot for people who never drive themselves anywhere, and are never at their personal home for extended periods of time.

Movie stars aren't the people we need to start driving EV's and hybrids, but due to commonality in the US, they're the necessary factor.

Personally, I could care less about Movie stars... I think most of them are ridiculous, as pose as nothing but a shame to our culture. Some are OK. Few are actually "good people" in their every day lives. (With the cameras off.)

But, because of the sense of "whos who" in this country, Americans look to their ridiculous idols to learn "how to live". SO, that said, movie stars buying hybrids gets better publicity, even if it is just a joke for them.
