A lot of celebs claim that they would love to be anonymous for a day. But then they seem to be perplexed or even insulted when it actually happens. Recently, when Miley Cyrus dined at NYC burger joint, Pop Burger, she was exasperated when the counter guy asked for her name for the order. A witness said that she went so far as to chide the unsuspecting employee. “Are you serious? You don’t recognize me?” she said. “I’m Miley Cyrus.” I guess she was just “being Miley.” Translation: a teenage egomaniac.
But Miley’s not the only celeb that has managed to go out in public thoroughly undetected. After the jump, some more celebs that went incognito.
The youngest Jonas brother, Nick, is used to being attacked by swooning girls. But the clueless counter girl at Aroma coffee shop in Los Angeles was totally nonplussed when he ordered a chai latte. In fact, Nick had to tell her who he was. That so never would have happened at Starbucks.
Apparently, nobody in London really knows what Coldplay frontman Chris Martin looks like. When he decided to hop on the Tube to get to his sold out concert, not a single person recognized him—including the security guard at the arena. If only Gwyneth had been there.
Bob Dylan is not the freewheelin‘ young dude he used to be, but he’s kind of hard to miss. He recently went on a tour of rock legend John Lennon’s house without anyone even catching a whiff of his scent blowin‘ in the wind. Must have been the top hat.
Ewan McGregor was forced to go solo when not a single “Star Wars” fan in Tunisia recognized him as Hans Solo. Or maybe he was using Jedi mind tricks.
Airports make Robert Pattinson nervous since he became better known as Edward Cullen. Where can he go for a little peace and quiet? Tokyo. No one recognized him when he was there and he had plenty of time to wander around and shop for trinkets. Okay … now I feel bad for him for a second. The poor guy just wants to shop for Japanese trinkets in peace.
What is Megan Fox’s secret to slipping under fans’ radars in public? She says she’s much shorter than people think—5’ 4’‘ is not really that short, though. I’m thinking maybe it’s more likely that people think she is better looking than she actually is.
Nobody expected Angelina and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt to be shopping at the Gap. No paps or anyone else recognized them as they slipped into a Santa Monica Gap Kids to get Shiloh some new threads.
Colin Farrell was tired of getting typecast and spotted around town, so he decided to shave off all of his pesky facial hair. Now no one recognizes him or calls him for auditions. It may be time to grow it back.
Remember when Lilo misplaced her cell phone in a New York deli and called the NYPD? Well, her freak-out may have partially been attributed to the fact that the cashier didn’t know who she was and wouldn’t give it back to her without reviewing the security tape. You can laugh. It’s funny.
