There's more than one way for Hollywood actors to go green. While most celebrities choose to go the way of Toyota Prius
ownership, Eric Bana's chosen green ride is a 1973 Ford Falcon from Australia
, a gas guzzler from a time that just barely predates most modern emissions equipment. That car, which is the title character in Bana's upcoming new movie Love The Beast
, was modified to take part in the grueling Targa Tasmania Rally, and we doubt the list of upgrades included bits like catalytic converters and computer-controlled engine management systems. Other stars slated to appear in the new flick include certified motor-heads Jay Leno
, Jeremy Clarkson
and... um, Dr. Phil. So, what's the green angle?
Bana's production company, known as Pick Up Truck Pictures
, contracted an outside firm to calculate the total carbon emissions spent in the production of the film. To offset this carbon footprint
, oxygen-exhaling trees will be planted to suck up their share of carbon dioxide and restore forest ecosystems. Ta-da!
