Dame Helen Mirren sorry for New York subway man arrest

By Emma Clark

Dame Helen Mirren has confessed she is a "terrible person" after getting a fellow passenger into trouble, weeks after she was spotted displaying flawless subway etiquette.

The Oscar-winning actress used her latest red carpet moment to publicly apologise to a passenger she said was hauled away by "subway police" in New York.

The "nice man" held open a set of carriage doors as the train was about to leave to allow the Hollywood star and her friends to get on - but he was promptly escorted away by the authorities for delaying the train.

"So that's my horror story against me, I was a terrible person," she said at the Roundabout Theatre Company's 2015 Spring Gala.
