We are so used to seeing celebrities on our screens that we sometimes forget they have a life beyond the screen and behind the cameras as well. Glamor and luxury are often associated with celebrities. We look forward to them traveling in their own cars or expensive cabs. Generally speaking, we don’t expect celebrities in public transport like the subway.
Well, if there’s any indication for these celebrities, a whole lot! They may all have loads of cash, but that didn’t make them lose touch with us lowly ordinary people. Indeed, each of these stars still has to do the world’s most mundane thing — use public transport — and there are photographs to prove it.
Prominent people do not always travel privately, though. Sometimes they’re going to use the public transport channels like you and me. We’ve listed photos of celebrities using the subway in this post. Scroll on and take advantage of peeps.

While these pictures may look frank, they are actually being staged! Barrymore released a fresh line of makeup products and chose to use them on Instagram to share snaps of herself.
Not only does Keanu Reeves frequently ride the New York City subway, but when he does, he shows the world that after reaching star status, celebrities still retain their manners. A fan witnessed Reeves giving up his seat to a woman during a particular ride in 2013, capturing this act on video and creating an internet feeling—as if we needed more reasons to admire the Matrix star.
Emma Watson posted this photo on her Instagram as if we needed another reason to adore the Harry Potter star, showing her fans the myriad ways she’s pushing literature on New York City’s unassuming residents—including hiding books along subway platforms.
