Kevin Bacon - Kevin Bacon uses public transport

Kevin Bacon takes the subway every day.

The down-to-earth 'Following' actor finds public transport to be the best way to get around in New York City and passes the time by playing his favourite games on his mobile phone.

He said: ''I take the subway every day. It's the fastest way to get around New York City. When I'm on the train, I play Solitaire, Angry Birds and Backgammon on my phone.''

The 54-year-old star - who has children Travis, 23, and Sosie, 20, with wife Kyra Sedgwick - is also happy to help out around their Manhattan home with whatever chores need doing.

He explained in an interview with People magazine: ''Whatever needs to be done, I'll do it. I recently vacuumed and cleaned up the foamy insides of a dog toy. I buy our dogs Lilly and Rocky toys and within 24 hours there're piles of chewed up foam all over the house.''

One reason why Kevin is happy to use public transport could be his love of being recognised, as the actor recently admitted he hated going out in disguise and not being noticed.

He said: ''Fame is very much a double-edged sword. I had a prosthetic disguise made, because I wanted to see what it would be like not to be recognised. I didn't like it very much - no one was nice to me. People didn't bother me, but they also looked right through me.''
