New Yorkers don't really pay celebrities much heed unless they are shoving themselves in our face, or chasing us around Times Square, or inadvertently manspreading. But every once in a while, we come across a celebrity so chill that we must pause to praise them. And there is certainly no more impressive celebrity than Academy Award Winner Dame Helen Mirren, who was spotted demonstrating perfect subway form this week.

Mirren was spotted on a downtown R train on Thursday by Instagram user Jason Lowe. And she makes subway riding look classy: she's carrying her bag on her lap! She's not taking up an excessive amount of space! She's not scared to sit next to other human beings! She's wearing purple gloves for crissakes! The MTA should really ditch their red humanoids etiquette campaign and just plaster every train with this photo of the star of Red 2.

Like subway spirit Jake Gyllenhaal, many NYers have tweeted about seeing Mirren on the subway in recent years. Unlike Jake Gyllenhaal, Mirren has not been cursed to eat bagels off the floor of the subway for eternity (as far as we know).

She blends in with us so well, you may not have even realized you were in the presence of Literal Helen Mirren.

Sometimes people forget to breathe around Literal Helen Mirren.

Sometimes people forget to curtsey around Literal Helen Mirren.

Sometimes people forget that they're hungry around Literal Helen Mirren.

Sometimes people forget their manners around Literal Helen Mirren.

But mostly, people just think every older woman could be Mirren. And maybe some of them really were her, since now we know for sure she really does take the subway (and eats at Subway, for what it's worth).
