A fan freaked out on the subway when she spotted the 53-year-old actor standing next to her


Ben Stiller gave one fan the surprise of her life when she noticed they were riding on the subway together.

In a video shared by Subway Creatures on Instagram Wednesday, Stiller laughed as he watched the unidentified woman freak out as she noticed who he was.

“I need a photo for my kids! God! Crazy!” she said in Spanish. She immediately got up and took her hair out of rollers she had used to keep her hair pinned up.

“My hair, no! No, lies! You make me laugh so much!” she continued in Spanish. “I love you so much! Me crazy!”

Turning to another passenger, she gave them her phone and said, “Oh my God. OK, OK, give me video for me!”

The 53-year-old actor didn’t appear to mind as she asked for a video and photograph. Other fans also approached the star asking for photographs, which he accepted.

This isn’t the first time Stiller has caught attention with spontaneous encounters.

In February 2016, the actor and his Zoolander 2 costar Owen Wilson caught fans’ attention when they posed as mannequins at a Valentino storefront in Rome, Italy.

Stiller couldn’t pass up the opportunity to flaunt their skills on his Instagram account.

“Me and Hansel are back modeling again and it’s literally stopping traffic,” he captioned the clip of them modeling. “So we may need to stop again really really soon.”
