Mr. Bean

Hospitalized After Wrecking

Super-Expensive Exotic Car

8/5/2011 6:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mr. Bean
is a VERY lucky man ... because the guy WRECKED the hell out of his MILLION DOLLAR McLaren F1 sports car last night ... and was only hospitalized for a minor shoulder injury.

According to U.K. reports, the 56-year-old comedic actor -- real name Rowan Atkinson -- was driving in England around 7:30 PM last night ... when he lost control of the car, spun three times, ran into a tree and hit a signpost.

Bean was taken to a nearby hospital where he is being treated for the shoulder injury. His car wasn't so lucky -- the entire back end was absolutely crushed.

The worst part -- the McLaren F1 is so rare, there are only 100 of them in the world.

Rowan's rep tells TMZ ...  Rowan is "all fine and going home [from the hospital] soon."

Wonder how fast Rowan was going. That car looks like it was sliced in 2. Where's the other half? Strewn across the road, I'll bet.

Damn... didn't think Mr. Bean would be a speed junkie.

Oh no, Mr. Bean!

to Jackie - TMZ spreads it's other stories over days if there are more interesting ones they can get more feedback from first. kinda annoying at times.

Most people who buy a McLaren F1 end up wrecking it. It is too much car and they don't have a clue what they are doing.

A comedic actor who spends $1 million on a car and wrecks it? Why is that not surprising? Never found Mr. Bean's skits funny. He hurt his shoulder? Too bad. Wishing him a quick and full recovery. Glad he didn't hurt anyone else with his crappy driving. Maybe he should drive a normal car he can handle and control next time, like a Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Ford or Chrysler? Mr. Bean does have a funny face with egg on it.

It amazes me how many tards think that just because they can afford expensive sports cars they think they can automatically handle such things

So how much do the other F1's go up in value now? I remember reading a story in a Maxim magazine about some guy who crashed a Ferrari that only ~100 were made. Others jumped by I don't remember how much but it wasn't pennies.

Maybe because I'm a black person my sense of humor is not on par with what's considered "normal", but whether this guy played Mr. Bean, Blackadder, a cop in The thin blue line or secret agent Johnny English, he didn't make me laugh.
But the same goes for Two and a half men, The king of queens, Will and Grace and other comparable programs. They're just too fabricated, too much staged.
I don't know why Atkinson lost control of his car, but hopefully he'll recover.
