Because cases of mistaken celebrity identity can be really annoying, here follows a list of some stars—most of whom are out-of-towners—in New York over the next seven days. So if you happen to find yourself at, say, Da Silvano on Wednesday night and could swear that Tom Hanks is sitting at the next table over, you’ll know that it’s probably him. (Mr. Hanks comes to town today to promote his new film, Charlie Wilson’s War.)

Herewith, some other stars in town to push a little flesh this week:

  • Emile Hirsch: Back for more interviews and TV appearances to promote Sean Penn’s Into the Wild.
  • Adrian Grenier: To co-host the 2nd anniversary “Charity: Water” event tonight, which raises money to build potable water wells in Africa, at the Metropolitan Pavillion on West 18th St.
  • Ashlee Simpson: Will premiere the video for her new single, “Outta My Head,” on MTV’s TRL today.
  • Rachel Covey: The star of Enchanted will don an elf costume for Animal Fair Magazine’s 2nd annual Toys for Dogs benefit tonight at Touch on West 52nd St.
  • Mikhail Baryshnikov: The Russian dancer will star in the New York Theatre Workshop’s Buckett Shorts tomorrow on East 4th St.
  • Paula Poundstone: Slated to perform at the Blender Theater at Gramercy on Saturday night.
  • Jenna Fischer: Will conduct interviews and TV appearances to promote her role in Columbia Pictures’ Walk Hard: the Dewey Cox Story.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
