Harry Potters Limo Ride...
We all associate limousines with the rich and famous as they seem to always be emerging gracefully from a stylish limo at awards shows or even simply after a trip to the hairdresser. However, celebrities have special occasions they like to celebrate with limo hire too and they are also not always as sensible when it comes to sampling from the limo bar as they should be.
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has been dragged from obscurity into the limelight in the last few years, with the phenomenal success of the Harry Potter series of films. It is therefore no wonder that he felt like letting his hair down a little to celebrate his 18th birthday as not only had he reached the legal drinking age, he also now has access to US $46.4 million which has previously been held in a trust.
Therefore, Radcliffe was able to celebrate this milestone birthday in the best possible style and so he chose to enjoy his birthday activities by being chauffeur driven in a private limousine. Most of his birthday celebrations were spent at Lord's cricket ground watching an almost rained out England vs India Test.
For dinner, Radcliffe's limousine transported him and his cricket buddy to a private member's club in Soho where his mother, father and friends all began the night by singing the star Happy Birthday'.
The cake and food was of course washed down with numerous beers and several bottles of wine after which Radcliffe was poured back into his limousine and driven slowly and carefully back home. The extent of his celebrations was revealed the next day when his father appeared at a little after midday to say that his son was asleep, and would be for a while.
So while we all dream of living the glamorous lives of the stars we see on the big and small screen, it is good to know that they, like us, are often grateful for the steady hand of the chauffeur and the smooth drive of the limo to get them home after a big night of celebrations.
