*Yup, that’s right one of our very own gals got to meet Rob and she lives to tell about it in today’s letter! Sit back, try not to be jealous and drool at this first hand account and maybe a few “Educational Moments”*
I hear you are having English elocution lessons because you no longer have the correct English accent necessary for “Bel Ami”.
Mate! (not Dude!) Are you also back to talking about trousers (not pants), lifts (not elevators), chips (not fries), crisps (not chips), jumpers (not sweaters), football (not soccer), pavements (not sidewalks), candy floss (not cotton candy), films (not movies), biscuits (not cookies)……..oh I could go on but it is getting a bit hard (TWSS).
Anyway I am glad you are back here in London. I saw “Twilight” in December 2008. And promptly forgot about it. But in mid-February my friend (thanks Loubs) insisted that I read the book. I finished the book on 15 February 2009, which led me to look for RL person who played Edward on youtube……..and I fell for you completely. Only days later, you left London to present at the Oscars and you did not come back for months.
I bitched all year that although I spend a lot of time in Barnes for work, I did not stand any chance of seeing you. I kept seeing members of your family! I even saw the WHOLE family at “Little Ashes” at the French Institute (are those girls twins…can YOU tell the difference?).
So now you are back filming “Bel Ami!”, it seemed only right that I stop my bitching and get down to action. That’s Normal, right?
Sure…..I was at the London Fan Event on 11 November, and you were a delight.
Sure…….I was at the London premiere of “Remember Me” and got in a ton of pics BEHIND you and Emilie with my “Bel Ami” location sign:
Sure….I got a close up of the lip bite:
But on Friday 26 March 2010, I had the pleasure of getting a pic WITH you (okay, okay…. it is just one of my dimples and you)
and I got to sit about four feet away from you and spend over an hour looking at the jaw, the eyelashes, the beanie, the fingers, the rip on the left knee of the jeans whilst not even four feet away from you as we both sat and watched Blood Royale, Alan Pownall and band, Marcus Foster and band (LOVED the way you cheered and whooped for Marcus!), The Time Cats, Johnny Flynn and Jack Penate perform at the Lyric Lounge.
And it was FAB!
Thank you for coming back for a while. Thank you for being so kind and gracious and generous with fans. Whether it be at red carpet events or on the outside terrace at the Lyric Theatre or on the way to the shop (not store) for sweeties (not candy).
Lastly, a couple of questions… After part one of the Lyric Lounge, we were both first into our respective loos (not restrooms). On my way out of the Ladies, the queue (not line) of people waiting to go in was MASSIVE. And to get out of the Gents you would have had to push through a throng of chicks. “Good Luck with that” I thought. Did you push on through? Or were you trapped in there for the whole of the interval?
Also, what the eff was wrong with the microphone? And why did you keep telling Tom and Henry to fix it? I am sure I heard Tom say something like “Well, YOU fix it then!” That would’ve been so cool…..and I bet we could have heard a pin drop as you took the microphone…..as 120 people thought you were about to perform a song *THUD*
So glad you have NEVER stopped using ARSE (not ass)!!!

P.S. I lovelovelove the U.S.A. and the American language, but having read LTT religiously for over a year, I am still both amazed and amused by the cultural and linguistic differences in two countries that I thought were so so similar J
P.P.S. It was amazing, if you want more deets, happy to answer questions!
OMG BarnesGirl is soooo lucky and we hate love her! Leave her your jealous comments, ask questions and swoon over Rob. Tell us what your perfect meeting with Rob would be like. For now I’m off to change my trousers in the lift while debating whether I’ll be eating chip or biscuits for lunch today!
