I'll admit, I haven't seen any of the Twilight movies yet. I'm an odd girl and sometimes I hold off on caving to pop culture for as long as I can. Perhaps this would be a good weekend to get my Edward on. Tweens, teens, and 20-somethings within several hours of my city are freaking out right now over news that Robert Pattinson (and Reese Witherspoon) will be in my area for the next few days filming the movie "Water for Elephants".
Star fever is catching. I'm tempted to hang around downtown this weekend to watch the rabid fans trying to catch a glimpse of 'Edward' coming and going from his hotel. Web rumors are already flying: "My friend saw him by the Sting Ray tank at the Aquarium, and he blew her a kiss." (so not true)
Filming locations include the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum (where scenes from other big movies have also been filmed in the past), and this house outside of Chickamauga, GA - about an hour from downtown Chattanooga. The film crew really wanted an authentically aged house. The house had been vacant for 12 years, and was without any electricity or water.
P.S. This post is dedicated to KS at While We're Waiting. Girlie, if I had known in advance that your man was going to be right down the road from me, I would have invited you down south for a Pattinson party :)
