Actor and musician, Kevin Bacon, was in a NY city subway station, while waiting for his train to show up, he was fooling around with his Blackberry. A thief walked by and snatched the Blackberry out of his hand, and ran off. Bacon tried to chase after him to get his Blackberry back, turns out the thief is a faster runner than Bacon is.
In Hollywood movies, Bacon is able to hunt down criminals, but he isn’t able to do that in real life.
The comments in TMZ are wondering, why he used a Subway train to get where he needed to go in NYC when he has tons of money to go around in a limo or a taxi?
My guess is that Kevin doesn’t see himself as a celebrity. He sees himself as a guy doing work for film which he makes a living off of, but he doesn’t see himself as a famous person.
He’s not that type of guy where he has bodygaurds, hides in limos with dark windows, etc. He wants to be part of the normal, every day world type, if you know what I mean. That’s probably why he is easy to notice out in public in NYC.
In other words, he wants to be a real person. He’s not that ego celebrity type where they can’t be seen by the public.
