When Batman’s Ride Can’t Handle the Heat! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ”ฅ

TL;DR: Ben Affleckโ€™s vintage 1969 Cadillac DeVille feels the burn of the L.A. heat wave, taking a smoky break in Brentwood. Selfie opportunists, unite! ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿคณ

As much as we love to glamorize the life of a Hollywood A-lister, turns out their cars are as vulnerable to the scorching sun as ours! Who would’ve thunk? Ben Affleck, beloved actor and director, was out and about with his son Samuel, probably reminiscing the golden days of 1969 as they cruised in a Cadillac DeVille from the same year. But, the universe had other plans. The Cadillac decided to throw a little steam party right when the temperature was dancing around 90 degrees. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Pulled over and with the hood up, Ben did what any of us would do (or maybe not): searched for the nearest gas station for some coolant, keeping his cool (see what we did there? ๐Ÿ˜‰). While trying to get back on the road, a kind soul decided to give him a hand. And of course, how can one resist not taking a selfie with Mr. Affleck in such a situation? ๐Ÿคณ๐Ÿ˜‚

And oh boy, this isnโ€™t Ben’s debut in the car mishap theater. Last year, during a daddy-son bonding session at a car showroom, Samuel decided to try his hand at driving a Lamborghini. Before you get all excited about it, letโ€™s just say the Lambo and a BMW got to know each other a little too closely. ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿš™

Adding to the list of โ€œThings that shouldn’t happen to celebrities but totally do,โ€ remember when Ben was cruising with J Lo and that Starbucks sign just jumped in his way at the drive-thru? Those pesky signs, always sneaking up on you. And speaking of J Lo, that same day she got locked out of a gym. Celebrities: theyโ€™re just like us, except when they’re not. ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ”

What is it with the universe and these minor (yet so entertaining for us) obstacles for our beloved stars? Maybe itโ€™s a reminder that everyone, even those in the limelight, has their days.

Questions to Ponder:

What’s the most ‘celebrity-like’ mishap you’ve had with your car? ๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’ญ
Do vintage cars and L.A. heat just not mix or was this Cadillac just having an off day? ๐Ÿค”
Why do drive-thru signs have a vendetta against celebs? ๐Ÿšซ๐Ÿฅค

End it all with a thought – if a celebrity’s car breaks down and no one is around to snap a pic, did it really happen?๐Ÿ“ธโ“
