Dames, they’re just like Us! On Thursday, Jan. 29, Dame Helen Mirren was photographed riding the R Train by Instagram user Jason Lowe. The Oscar-winning British actress, 69, displayed perfect posture, sitting up straight in her fur-trimmed coat with her expensive-looking taupe purse on her lap. She was also wearing some intense lilac-colored gloves.
She only took up a single seat, adhering to appropriate subway etiquette (did you expect anything less?), recently reinforced by talked-about new MTA ads.
“Well, that just happened | Dame Helen Mirren sitting across from me on the R train #helenmirren #subway #holycrap #NYC,” Lowe captioned his instantly viral photo.
Mirren is currently in New York starring as Queen Elizabeth II (again!) in the Broadway play The Audience.
