Music producer Mark Ronson rented a Cadillac when he passed his driving test, because he has the ''inner driving spirit of an 80-year-old man''
Mark Ronson has the spirit of an 80-year-old man.
The 34-year-old music producer rented a Cadillac car when he first passed his driving test, but admits his choice of vehicle could have been more daring.
He said: "When I got my license I leased a Cadillac, because my inner driving spirit is that of an 80-year-old man. You always see old people in America driving them really slowly because they're so uncomfortable. It's like being in a hovercraft."
Mark also revealed he is scared of performing live because he fears people will shout expletives at him if he messes up.
He explained: "All I expect is for someone to yell out, 'You're a f***ing w****r!'
"You do have that fear, it comes from the same place that makes me shake uncontrollably before I go on stage. I think it's partly nerves, but it's partly what keeps you on your toes."
Although Mark has dated a string of beautiful women - including British model Daisy Lowe - he doubts his ability to seduce females that he finds attractive.
He told Esquire magazine: "I've never been the kind of person out on the prowl bedding different girls every night. I went through a two-week phase, but it was really awful.
"The 'man about town' thing is so cliched - I'd hate to think that I was subscribing to any idea of what someone in my position should be like.
"There's also the slight problem that the type of girl I go for would be way less likely to like me because I'm Mark Ronson. They'd much rather be talking to a Klaxon in the corner."
