Neil Patrick Harris, Anne Hathaway + More: 15 Celebrities Riding the Subway
It’s always fun to spot stars on the subway! Have you seen any of these celebs riding the rails?
When you live in a city, you usually end up embracing the subway as a way of life. Cabs may have more cachet, but given the choice between speeding underground and being stuck above ground in rush hour traffic, I’ll take the subway every time (not to mention how expensive cabs can get!). It shouldn’t really be a surprise when celebs make the same choice, then, right? Of course not; we’re all just people, after all!
Of course, though, that doesn’t stop star spottings on the subway from being loads of fun. From Neil Patrick Harris to Anne Hathaway, here are 15 of our favorite celebs getting their public transportation on. A lot of them are in New York, but not all of them, so pay attention! Were you there when any of these pics were snapped?
1. and 2. Zooey Deschanel and Alexa Chung
Zooey Deschanel snapped this one with Instagram sometime in either January or February; it looks like she and Alexa Chung are in New York. Have you ever seen more a stylish pair of subway riders?
3. Neil Patrick Harris
People tells me that some eagle-eyed photographer caught Neil Patrick Harris on the platform at 42nd Street – Port Authority last May.
4. Meryl Streep
I don’t exactly know where Meryl is here, but I’m pretty sure it’s not New York. Anyone out there recognize it? Let us know in the comments if you’ve figured out where she is!
I wonder if Beyonce chose to ride the B train simply because it’s the B train? I suppose it’s always possible! Given that she lives in Brooklyn, though and that the B runs through Brooklyn, it’s probably more likely that it’s just her nearest subway line.
6. Hugh Jackman
If I remember correctly, Hugh and his family live in New York’s West Village, so it makes sense that he looks like he’s riding the 2 train here. This one’s been making the Internet rounds for a while—does anyone know when it was taken? My guess would be during one of the warmer months, given his cropped pants (leave it to Hugh Jackman to pull off cropped pants).
More celebs riding the subway, including Tom Cruise and Rihanna, up next!
