Jordana Brewster rides a motorcycle in a Patrick Hoelck photo shoot for Flaunt magazine. In real life the Fast and Furious actress is not a bikes and scooters girl; in fact she confesses to being a bad driver who needs sensors on her car to help her in driving and parking.
Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster promoting Fast and Furious in Moscow. Tough girl Michelle Rodriguez cares for the environment in her choice of cars: "I love speed, but I drive a Prius now. It would be really cool if there were a whole league of race cars that were 'green'."
Jordana Brewster says she knows little about cars and didn't even have a license when she acted in the first movie The Fast and the Furious back in 2001. "I don't know that much about cars. My car has sensors on it because I really need them [to stop] curb hitting and garbage cans......My dad predicted when I was like fifteen, he's like You're going to be a disaster as a driver."
Jordana puts down her lack of driving skills to getting distracted; but luckily she doesn't get into the Lindsay Lohan kind of trouble. Above Brewster is drinking for a Michael Tammaro photo shoot but she doesn't go to many parties or get drunk silly.
Jordana told the New York Daily News: "I moved to New York when I was 10, from Rio de Janeiro. So there was no need for driving: I took the subway, cabs and the bus. I didn't have the desire or the need for it, and I'm not really that big of a car girl. When I got 'The Fast and the Furious,' I was going to school at Yale and still didn't have my driver's license - I'd take Metro-North to Connecticut. So I crammed and took a quickie driving course, though New York is probably the worst place to learn. There are no areas that are really, really empty, which is my prerequisite for a great driving area. I remember one day in Central Park that was really harrowing. Parking is a nightmare for me. ... I still have sensors on my car that help me park."
In Yale Brewster's first car was a Lexus but now she drives a Mercedes ML 500. Both Jordana Brewster and Megan Fox drive Mercedes cars, and both were in the 2009 list of top ten girls of Maxim. Jordana is looking forward to the Megan Fox movie Transformers 2: "I really want to see that because it looks huge. I like effects when you can't really see them. You can really lose yourself in the movie. And I love Bumblebee. It's just a really fun movie. Escapism which is fun."

Megan Fox drives boys crazy. Here the Transformers actress drives a black Mercedes CLS55. In the movie Megan Fox is an expert car mechanic but in real life...
"Part of my audition process for the first movie was to pretend to work on a Ferrari," says Megan Fox about her role. "Michael was filming and I was underneath this Ferrari trying to figure it out. I still don't know anything about cars." Above, Megan Fox in shorts getting out of her ex-boyfriend's Mercedes-Benz G500.

As a teenager Megan Fox was a bad girl, she tells Entertainment Weekly: "I would steal my mom’s car because I was always grounded and she would never drive me anywhere."
Megan Fox kissing herself in the mirror for FHM magazine. In high school Megan says: "I was always a tomboy....I was this weird mix. I liked to dress up in a ballerina costume, but then I'd go outside with some of my guy friends and squish caterpillars....I was a mess."
