In a recent interview with People Magazine, actor Kevin Bacon revealed that he rides the subway in New York City.

“It's the fastest way to get around the city,” he said in an interview. “When I'm on the train, I play solitaire, Angry Birds, and backgammon on my phone.”

Bacon has a home in New York with his wife, “The Closer” actress Kyra Sedgwick.

The actor also said in the interview that he had a disguise made up so he wouldn’t be recognized by fans, but that he was surprised by how he felt when he was treated like everyone else. 

“Fame is very much a double-edged sword,” Bacon said, according to MSN News. “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.”
