Millionaire Hollywood actor keeps a low profile as he cycles past a north London Poundland on a fold-up bike… but can you guess who it is?
He’s endeared himself to millions – and made millions – thanks to starring roles in an extensive list of big screen comedies.
But this Hollywood star was oblivious to pedestrians as he cycled through a north London street on Saturday.
The A-list American actor, 54, whizzed past a Poundland shop on a fold-up Brompton bicycle.
He rocked a relaxed look in grey joggers and a green coat, opting for a turtleneck jumper despite the sunny Easter weekend weather.
The father-of-three also carried a rucksack with cartoon owls to bring his essentials on his bike ride.
He donned a navy cap over his signature blonde locks as he successfully navigated the busy London traffic.
But who was it?

Well, it was none other than Owen Wilson.
The actor is playing Bob Ross in upcoming comedy film Paint, and he looked almost unrecognisable as he rocked a perm inspired by the artist.
Wilson, who normally sports a blonde shaggy cut, channeled the iconic painter as he sported a blonde permed wig and toted an easel in the first photos from the film, which was released on April 7.
The background of the poster features evergreen trees dotting the base of a snow-covered mountain, in homage to Ross’ famous oil paintings of Alaskan landscapes.
Paint sees Wilson play painter Carl Nargle who lives in Vermont and has a knack for bringing people together. But when Nargle meets a younger and more charismatic artist, his dark side reveals itself.
The film’s tagline is ‘Go to a special place,’ a take on Ross’ famous tagline, ‘There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.’
Paint also stars Michaela Watkins, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Lusia Strus, Ciara Renee, Lucy Freyer and Stephen Root.
Bob Ross died in 1995 at age 52 after a battle with lymphoma.
