Actress Alexa Vega's dream came true on her 16th birthday, when film-maker Robert Rodriguez bought her a brand new car.

Rodriguez, who directed Vega in the Spy Kids movies, granted Vega's wish when she celebrated her landmark birthday on 27 August (04).

She says of Rodriguez, "He told me he'd get me any car I wanted. I told him, 'Robert, you can't do that to a girl! I don't want to be rude and ask for too expensive a car.'"

They eventually agreed on a RANGE ROVER.

Vega adds, "I must be the most spoiled girl in the world."
