When we think of celebrities, we think of glamour, wealth, and fame. Once a superstar steps outside, the whole world watches their every move. And that includes the times they use public transportation! Whether it’s for fun or because they genuinely want to use public transport, many celebrities are often spotted riding the subway, especially in New York and London. Here are some proofs of stars caught riding the subway just like we do!
The hit singer of “Thinking Out Loud,” Ed Sheeran, has become a household name after selling over 80 million records. Hence that’s why people were shocked to see him in the subway. Imagine commuting to work and finding yourself standing right next to Ed Sheeran himself! Anyhow, the “Shape of You” singer looks pretty comfy riding the train.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker is an actress with “New York City” written all over her. The Sex and the City star was not born in the Big Apple, but she moved to the city at a very young age. As any true New Yorker, the star rides the subway regularly. At first sight, anyone could’ve thought she was just an ordinary woman on her daily grocery run. But if you look closely at her sparkly shoes, you can immediately tell that it is Sarah Jessica Parker — the star of New York City!
Mariah Carey is a diva and a multi-talented superstar with a whistle register like no other. The “Without You” singer is the best-selling female artist of all time, so it’s not surprising that she hasn’t used public transportation in years. In 2014, the pop star rode the subway for the first time. She was going home after an event, which explains the fancy gown.
Bradley Cooper may be a successful actor and director, but he is one of the few Hollywood stars who have managed to keep his life away from the spotlight. The actor is quite lowkey and is also not on social media. Would you have recognized him if we hadn’t told you that this is Bradley Cooper? He looks just like any other New York resident, and maybe that’s why no one is fretting over his presence on the subway train.
Do we need to introduce Tom Hanks? The man is a national treasure! Hanks has starred in some of the most popular and beloved movies ever, but he never allowed the success to get to his head. The second he stepped inside, this woman immediately recognized Tom Hanks. She obviously couldn’t miss the chance to take a photograph with the legendary actor. Why isn’t a long line of fans waiting to take their selfies?
This topic would be a huge insufficient without mentioning Keanu Reeves. The movie star rose to global fame after his Matrix movies, and he’s made much money since the original trilogy came out. Keanu is easily one of the kindest and humblest celebs. The man doesn’t seem to care about his million dollars net worth. He could have any car and hire any driver on the planet — but he chooses to chill in the subway while reading the newspaper.
Harry Styles is one of the most talented stars of this generation. But before he became the apple of many girls’ eyes, the British star was just any other person trying to get his big break. You won’t catch Harry using public transportation anymore these days, but he was often spotted on a train back in the early 1D days. In this picture, he’s sitting next to bandmate Louis Tomlinson, and the two happily chat with the other riders.
Kim and Kourtney Kardashian
Over a decade ago, Kim and her family were in NYC to shoot an episode of their hit reality TV series. When the cameras were off, Kim and Kourtney spent most of the ride taking pictures while riding the subway. Yet they look so out of place. Even the way Kim is posing is funny. It seems like this was her first time using public transportation!
What would your reaction be if you rode the train home and sat directly across from a movie star? For us, this would be the best moment ever. But New Yorkers are probably used to that, so they snap a pic and go on about their days. Helen Mirren is one of the most elegant of dames who catches the train from time to time. We understand her for choosing the subway — it’s definitely better than dealing with the traffic in Manhattan.
Andrew Garfield was once the neighborhood’s friendly hero, but the responsibilities that came with his great power didn’t keep him from using public transportation. These days, it’s pretty hard to spot the actor, so the person sitting next to him was really lucky. Judging by his relaxed stance, he probably doesn’t even recognize the “The Amazing Spiderman“ star. It’s always the people who don’t follow celebs that get to be that close to them!
