The two celebs independently reserved helicopters to shuttle them across town while the 405 Freeway is shut down. We're told Wyatt booked a ride from LAX to Van Nuys, while Perkins booked one the other way around.

If these two are going to such extravagant lengths to avoid Carmageddon ... just think what Simon Cowell is doing.
