If you live in New York and use mass transportation it's inevitable. At some point you're going to spy a celebrity on the subway. And in the era of everyone having a camera phone at their disposal, the urge to sneak a quick pic can sometime feel overwhelming.
It happened to one shutterbug who spied actress Naomi Watts on the subway some time last year. But Watts had her phone handy too...and turned the tables on the subway shutterbug.
"Think you're pretty sneaky? #gotyou #snap #subwayscenes" Watts captioned a pic before sharing it with her over half a million Instagram followers.
The photographer, who as it turns was real life portrait photographer, later identified herself on Watts Instagram page.
"yes I'm the jerk fan who failed at sneaking a pic. "Naomi was super cool about it though! If I hadn't been a hacking mass of germs I might have had the nerve to say hi! Who am I kidding lol I was practically jumping up & down from excitement after she got off! #newbie #nexttimeillask"
