Tobey Maguire at Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia (9/3)

I have no problem if you're an animal rights activist, just please don't act like a little bitch when the seats in your Mercedes loaner aren't made of hemp. It's a Mercedes, you idiot. Of course the seats are going to be made of leather. From the Sydney Daily Telegraph:
NOT happy with the complimentary new Mercedes he was given for personal use during his stay in Australia, actor Tobey Maguire has sent his luxury car back after taking issue with the use of leather in the car's plush upholstery.

Maguire apparently has embraced a "no-leather" policy in his personal life and was upset at being handed the keys to a vehicle fitted out in ultra-soft animal skin for the duration of his Sydney stay. And so Bazmark Films, the makers of The Great Gatsby in which Maguire plays Nick Carraway, took the car back and sent it off to the dealer to have the upholstery replaced with vinyl.
This is why everyone hates celebrities. This guy is so self-righteous that he just couldn't accept the free Mercedes he was being offered without somehow finding fault in it. Listen Tobey, if you're so concerned about helping animals, why don't you do something more proactive about it. Yes I mean retire. Every time I see one of your dumb movies, I do something terrible to an animal. How many more kittens must I punch Tobey? HOW MANY MORE?
