Ben Stiller, like many native New Yorkers, gets around the city by taking the subway — and caused a fan to have a major freakout when she realized her transit companion was the star of such films as “Tropic Thunder” and “Meet the Parents”.
In a video a fellow subway passenger shared on Wednesday, Stiller — wearing aviator-style sunglasses — seems amused when the woman suddenly recognizes him and goes completely berserk.
“I need a photo for my kids! God! Crazy!” she said in Spanish, taking her hair out of rollers and attempting to make herself look presentable in the presence of a celebrity.
“My hair, no! No, lies! You make me laugh so much!” she continued in Spanish. “I love you so much! Me crazy!”
At one point, she turned to another passenger to offer her phone. “Oh my God. OK, OK, give me video for me!”
This isn’t the first time that Stiller has had a little fun freaking out fans. Back in 2016, he and “Zoolander” 2 co-star dressed up like their fashion-model characters and modelled in the window of a Valentino shop in Rome.
