Oh, baby: Subway riders refuse to offer pregnant Olivia Wilde a seat

If you thought the unwritten rules of public transportation meant offering your seat to elderly people and pregnant women, think again. Even actress Olivia Wilde, of "House M.D." and "Tron: Legacy" fame, was left to stand and juggle her pregnant belly on a recent subway journey.

Wilde tweeted about the experience, but kept her sense of humor.

Wilde didn't offer any details about where exactly she was traveling, but she lives in Brooklyn and has posted about riding the New York subway before, and other Twitter users have reported Wilde sightings on the system.
