The New York Subway. A place where on any given day you could come across inexplicable rudeness, people making out with rats, Jake Gyllenhaal… Wait… what was that last one? Yes, you who thought you were slumming it with the proletariat on the subway are in fact rubbing shoulders with the stars. Here’s a little collection of celebrity subway sightings for you:
1. Tom Hanks
When the Captain Phillips star isn’t trying to wrangle his ship away from pirates, he’s taking it easy on the subway.
2. Sarah Jessica Parker
Miss New York herself Carrie Bradshaw roughs it on the subway?
3. Jake Gyllenhaal
Jake Gyllenhaal just reading on the subway like he’s normal people.
4. Jessica Alba
The shades ‘aint foolin’ no one, Alba. We see you acting like you’re not a multi-millionaire.
5. Neil Patrick Harris
Would Barney Stinson be seen dead on the subway? At least Neil Patrick Harris knows how to be a true New Yorker.
6. Michael Cera
Get your feet on the ground, Cera. Some people…
7. Keanu Reeves
Keanu got up and offered his seat to a female passenger shortly after this pic was taken. What a hero!
8. Helen Mirren
The Queen rides the NY subway? Well, no, just Helen Mirren. Good job on the bag etiquette, ma’am.
9. Drew Barrymore
Look! Drew Barrymore runs late and does her make-up on the subway like regular people!
10. Mariah Carey
Hmm… Something tells us this was a little publicity stunt. Just heading out for a bagel, Mariah? We think not.
11. Kevin Bacon
You may think you’ve fooled us with the hat and shades Kevin, but we see you playing Candy Crush on the subway.

Are the shades because you’re suffering from a “Hangover”, Bradley? Or did you think we wouldn’t recognise you?
