Seeing a celebrity riding the subway is God’s way of smiling down on us and say, “here, have a treat for no reason!” And this week a few lucky New Yorkers got treated to riding in the same subway as First Daughter actress Katie Holmes. The star who usually travels via chauffeured car or teleportation decided to complete her transformation to “average lady” by testing out this underground travel train she’s heard so much about from her help.
After weeks of contemplating what to wear on her maiden voyage, she settled on a $900 pair of jeans, a sweater and a purse large enough to comfortably fit as many former Dawson’s Creek castmates as she desired. Her shoes remain a mystery to us due to the photographer’s lack of skills, but we can presume they’re her signature booties or FiveFinger shoes. Those are the only real options.
While we haven’t heard from her in days (or ever), we assume the ride went well and she’s planning to return to the underground travel train again. In the meantime, she’s using her new-found confidence in public transportation to do all sorts of daring things.
Why, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone caught her making a sandwich one day or bowling after dark or married to Chris Klein. Seriously, anything’s possible now and all your dreams are attainable.
P.S – Sorry I can’t show you the real photo on Crushable. But I think this one makes the point. It’s Katie Holmes wearing her subway outfit next to a subway. It might even be better than the original.
