While scanning some Tesla videos online, I came across a few "Hollywood" videos from TMZ covering celebs who show their love for Tesla Motors and Elon Musk. We've already covered a bunch of celebrities who either own (or rave about) Tesla Motors' electric vehicles. However, TMZ seems to have captured some great footage of a famous movie director (this past week), actors, and a legendary singer who clearly have experienced the "Tesla smile" before.
To that end, check out the video below showcasing a compilation of TMZ video snippets of famous folks into Tesla Motors. And guess who proclaimed that, "Elon Musk is a genius. It [the Tesla Model X] is the best car in the world. It drives better, [has the] best stereo system, fits six people -- look at the [falcon wing] doors, it's the coolest!" Check out the video below for the answer...
Yes, that was Brett Ratner raving about his new Tesla Model X on TMZ. You might know of Brett from his music video director days working with the likes of Madonna, Mariah Carey, and Sean "Puffy" Combs among others. But, more famously, Brett went on to become a renowned movie director of the Rush Hour franchise and comic book inspired films (including Superman Returns and X-Men: The Last Stand). Next up, what's cooler than Han Solo / Indiana Jones driving a Model S... yes, that's Harrison Ford in his Tesla. And, TMZ captured footage of Will Smith's son Jaden Smith in his new Tesla Model X. Jaden has already gotten off to a nice start in Hollywood starring in remakes of The Karate Kid and The Day the Earth Stood Still and also rapping alongside Justin Beiber. Last, Stevie Wonder wants a "Tesla for Christmas" -- ummm, wait... what?
Well, it turns out that comedian Cedric the Entertainer gave Stevie Wonder a ride in his own Tesla Model S and Stevie was simply smitten with the car. Check out the interview on Conan O'Brien that tells the tale...

Kudos to TMZ for capturing Tesla and all these celebs during the course of their media coverage of the stars. And it's not just actors and singers -- it turns out supermodels and some rather famous SpaceX fans also seem to dig Tesla Motors too. In any event, we'll keep you updated on other famous folks who give up the gas pump and make the (ever-important) transition to driving electric.
