She's a household name after roles in Sex And The City and Mannequin. But despite her fame, down-to-earth Kim Cattrall isn't afraid to 'rough it' on London Underground. The Liverpool-born actress, 56, was spotted riding the Northern Line to North London last Thursday. The blonde star kept a low profile as her hat covered her face as she read the Evening Standard newspaper. She looked like a regular commuter in her skinny jeans, trainers, vest, as she blocked out the carriage noise with an MP3 player. Kim has spent much of this year in the UK and spoke at the Meltdown Festival on London's Southbank earlier this year. Next month, she's set to reprise her role as Cleopatra in Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra at the Chichester Festival Theatre. Cattrall recently hit the headlines when it was rumoured she had been cast in the big-screen adaptation of 50 Shades Of Grey. She told the Telegraph earlier this month: "No one has told me about that. But I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It's fun — whatever turns you on. All these women of a certain age are finally having fun and what's wrong with that? We're all adults." Cattrall is the latest celebrity spotted on the tube this year. Rihanna has taken the Jubilee line to her gigs at the O2 Arena, while Mel B rode the tube from a premiere at the O2 to the Hammersmith Studios when she famously turned up late on the Keith Lemon Celebrity Juice show.

How we're used to seeing Kim during a red carpet appearance earlier this year.

Those trousers are too tight to mention!

In his heyday he was known for classic hits such as Holding Back The Years and Something Got Me Started, as well as, of course, his penchant for the ladies. But Mick Hucknall looks almost unrecognisable nowadays, except for his iconic red locks. The singer was spotted looking happy as he attended Rick Wakeman's celebrity golf day last Friday. But he wore a rather unflattering shirt which clung in all the wrong places. Although he didn't seem to notice or care as he looked content making his way around the golf course. The 52-year-old matched his polo shirt with some pinstripe trousers and black shoes. While he seemed to take his golf seriously as he wore a golf glove on his left hand and dragged his professional clubs around the green. He was taking part in the Rick Wakeman Celebrity Classic at Burhill Golf Club in Surrey. Yes, rocker Wakeman has held the event annually for several years now, with past celebrity players including Jess Conrad and Eric Sykes. Hucknall hung up his Simply Red mic by performing the final farewell show in December 2010 after 25 years together. And he has largely remained out of the public eye since.

'I love to be scared and out of control'

Kristen Stewart revealed she loves feeling 'scared' and 'out of control' during a telling interview with a magazine before her affair scandal. The 22-year-old actress has seen her four-year relationship with boyfriend Robert Pattinson fall apart after she cheated on him with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. Talking about her career, Kristen told Little White Lies magazine: "I just really am trying, trying, all the time. But I like to be scared. I love to suddenly feel out of control. Actors walk around wearing these little tool-belts of acting skills. And I just don't find that interesting to watch. I never want to see someone who clearly can cry at the drop of a hat. That's so uninteresting.

"And so many actresses are so f***ing crazy. They're emotional wrecks, so they pretend to be these characters. But the emotions aren't coming from the right place. Do you know what I mean?"

The Twilight Saga star also revealed how she 'falls to pieces' when she's not filming. (Her fling with Sanders, 41, took place in July while she was between projects)
