Helen Mirren Rides The NYC Subway Like A Dame

You never know what or who you might see when riding the subway in New York City, but a recent episode of “Broad City” did a good job depicting just some of the bizarre and smelly possibilities. However, not every outing on public transpo has to be so bleak — in addition to a steaming turd in the middle of the car and a guy clipping his TEVA-clad toenails, you might encounter Helen Mirren! The actress was spotted riding the R train this weekend, sitting all proper-like in her seat with her handbag out of the way, and not making eye contact with her fellow passengers. Just like a Dame! The guy next to her, with his legs spread unnecessarily wide (an all too common sight, any woman will tell you), could learn a thing or two from her. [Instagram]
