    Default Eva Mendes has four car accidents in one day

    Actress Eva Mendes is such a bad driver she recently crashed her car four times in a day.

    To make matters worse, the accident-prone Training Day star had just bought her environmentally friendly car an hour before the first mishap.

    She says, "I bought a Lexus Hybrid, so I felt very environmentally responsible. When I got it, I drove it home and I was all excited but I just didn't pull in (to my garage) enough, so the garage door hit the back of the car (as it came down).

    "I don't count that as an accident, but it did leave a bump and a scratch, and I was like, `Oh, a new car. Fine.' I kinda forgot about it.

    "So later on I was pulling out and... I back up into a moving truck. This was the same day. This one was a little more (damaging) than the garage door. I think, 'I have to take the car in (to be repaired).' "So I'm driving down the hill and there's another moving truck. I was getting a little antsy at this point. I was waiting for awhile because I live in a very narrow street. I thought, `I'm going to manoeuvre my way around this.' And the left side now has been hit. I was totally embarrassed because these guys were looking at me like, `Dude, what's she doing?' "So I took the car in and... they gave me a rental car. The next day I have my rental car and I'm going down my hill and there's a monster truck heading the opposite way. And this time it was not my fault. I veered to the right, as I should have, and he did not veer to his left. He just came right at me and smashed into me. My whole front is caved in, but he was really sweet and admitted fault right away.

    Yes Eva...you are right on this one...now go and hire a driver before you get into a serious accident and put yours or someone elses life at risk.

    "But basically I shouldn't be on the road".

    That's the understatement of the decade.

    she told this story on The Tonight Show last week, thats where this is from. It was much more funny and cute and she wasn't so 'oh i dont give a damn' like it sounds here. there were a few more details than this, but I cant remember.

    She obviously thinks it's cute to talk about how stupid and ditzy she is.

    I was confused by the "I veered to the left like I should have" and thinking, "well, that would send her right into oncoming traffic..." Then I see it's from a british source. Y'all drive on the wrong side and changed the story accordingly!!!
    (j/k about the "wrong side" stuff, haha Don't come down on me with your British fury! )

    She's still got a ways to go before she tops Halle Berry's bad driving record, tho.

    Maybe she should get public transport.

    Sounds like someone doesn't know how to drive.

    Sounds like she has no luck with cars or driving whatsoever. Maybe it would do her some good to get off the road.

    Exactly! At least she didn't hit anyone. Another bad driver is that Nozema chick...Rebecca Gayheart.
