Dwayne Johnson made headlines last year when he Instagrammed the details of a minor car accident he got into. While we often hear stories of celebrities being arrested for driving under the influence or causing wrecks after being mobbed by paparazzi, it’s nice to see the times where actors and musicians in small fender benders own up to it and apologize. Here are five of the worst celebrity drivers, who are, at least, nice about it.
1. Dwayne Johnson
As the star of San Andreas and Moana details in his post on Instagram, Johnson was driving along in his truck when he heard a loud noise and realized he had “sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror.” Johnson immediately went back to face the owner of the truck, assuming they would be angry. When the truck’s owner saw that it was The Rock who had damaged his car, he wasn’t mad at all — instead they had a good laugh about it. Johnson said that Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass., refused to take his offer to pay for the damage.
2. Ben Affleck
Affleck had a similar incident to The Rock’s. He was driving in Santa Monica, Calif., when he knocked off a parked car’s mirror. A paparazzi shot caught him leaving a note that read, “Hi, knocked off your mirror! Very sorry! Will cover everything—Ben.” Now the question is whether he knew the paparazzi were watching him leave that note.
