Celebrities, they’re just like us...that is, until they get pulled over and the police officer realizes they are famous and lets them off without a ticket. At least, that’s exactly what happened to Adele.
During the pop star’s ITV concert, An Audience with Adele, the 33-year-old revealed to Samuel L. Jackson that her fame once got her out of a traffic ticket.
“Well one time on the 401, Samuel L. Jackson…" Adele said per People, before she kicked off the story. “When I first moved to L.A.—which by the way was never meant to be as long as it is—when I first moved there, I'd never really driven there, and I was in the fast lane, in the far left lane, not going that fast there was quite a lot of traffic, and I was in a rental and the windows were tinted a bit too dark but I didn't know that.”
The “Hello” singer continued, "Anyway, I was minding my own business and then suddenly a police car pulls up behind me and is basically hinting that I need to pull over so I just stopped where I was—I'd never been pulled over in my life. He pulls me over, I wind all my windows down as I've been taught to do before, especially if you get pulled over in America you never know what they're going to do. I handed him my British driver's license, which might as well have been like a Blockbuster card like he'd never seen one before, also it looks nothing like me, it was me when I was like 17.”
