Many of today's stars have had car as a home


William Shatner: The “Star Trek” star revealed to Details magazine in 2007 just how desperate he was after the show went off the air. When asked if it was true he had lived in his car, Shatner answered, “A pickup truck, actually. It was the early 1970s and I was recently divorced. I had three kids and was totally broke. I managed to find work back east on the straw-hat circuit — summer stock — but couldn’t afford hotels, so I lived out of the back of my truck, under a hard shell. It had a little stove, a toilet, and I’d drive from theater to theater. The only comfort came from my dog, who sat in the passenger seat and gave me perspective on everything.”

Hilary Swank: Long before she racked up two Oscars, the 39-year-old was just a 15-year-old girl whose mom moved her from her Bellingham, Washington, home to L.A. to chase her dream. The two actually lived out of their car for about eight weeks while Swank’s mom saved money until they could afford to rent an apartment. And the rest is history.
