Julianne Moore was left red-faced after she was refused entry onto a bus.
The 'Savage Grace' star had reserved a seat on the Hampton Jitney - which travels from New York city to the exclusive Hamptons area - but the driver failed to recognise the Oscar-nominated actress and insisted the bus was full last Thursday (07.08.08).
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Julianne was in a hat and big sunglasses. She kept quietly asking why she couldn't get on, but was very polite about it.
"But everyone started staring once she said she had reserved a seat and told the ticket-taker her name. So he began spelling out her name and yelling to the driver, 'M for Mary, O for Octopus, R for Robert . . . Moore! Moore!' She handled it so cool."
After failing to board the bus, the flame-haired actress decided to take the Luxury Liner coach instead.
