Naomi Watts turned the tables on a fan who tried to take a sneaky photo of her on the New York subway. The Oscar-nominated actress got her revenge on the girl by taking a photo of her and posting it to her public Instagram page.
Photographer Aubrey Lofgren spotted the Mulholland Drive actress sitting opposite her on the train during a visit to the Big Apple and decided to get a cheeky snap.
“The beautiful Naomi Watts on the subway today. #fanningout,” she captioned the photo.
But it seems that Watts was completely aware of what was going on and decided to give the undercover fan a taste of her own medicine.
Taking her own picture, the actress then uploaded it her account and shared the image of the girl with her 667,000 followers.
She wrote: “Think you’re pretty sneaky? #gotyou #snap #subwayscenes.”

Luckily, Lofgren wasn’t too embarrassed by the sequence of events and even reposted Watts’ post naming and shaming her.
The awkward subway run-in happened last year but went viral on Twitter this week after one eagle-eyed fan noticed the exchange.
