What a difference two months make. Back in January we found ourselves praising dame Helen Mirren for keeping it classy on the New York City subway—a difficult feat for many, including Tom Hanks—by showing exemplary subway manners. But Mirren, showing she’s no subway superhero after all, admitted to some subway behavior she’s not proud of, like that time she accidentally got someone kicked off a train.
Mirren confessed her shameful behavior to Jimmy Fallon last night, telling the story of how she was with her friends on the way to the theatre and how she couldn’t be late:
We gotta say, it wasn’t the nice thing to do, but it was the New York thing to do. If you’ve ever ridden the New York City subway, where people pack in like sardines, it’s really every man for himself.
