Even Ed Begley Jr. will admit, sometimes it’s not easy being green.

Certainly that’s true when it comes to getting to the Oscars.

The 64-year-old actor and environmentalist decided to forgo a chauffeured limo this year and take mass transit.

Begley, who serves on the board of governors that oversees the Oscars, tweeted a photo of himself and his daughter Hayden dressed up in front of a Metro station.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority always closes the subway station directly beneath the Dolby Theatre during the Oscars, so the actor and his daughter had to walk from the nearest open station to the big show. He acknowledged his daughter had to make the trek in heels.
