A host of celebrities including Diane Keaton, Robin Williams, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon are ditching their limousines in favour of driving to the Oscars in alternative fuel vehicles.

The stars plan to attend the Los Angeles bash on Sunday (29FEB04) in the environmentally friendly cars to protest at the everyday use of gas consuming vehicles.

Whale Rider actress Keisha Castle-Hughes, who is the youngest Best Actress nominee ever, plans to make a statement by ditching her giant limousine, Hollywood's preferred method of transport.

Castle-Hughes says, "Even though I am not old enough to drive, I am old enough to know that the environment is in danger. By taking a Hybrid car to the Oscars, I can show my support for helping our planet."
