There’s nothing we like more than when one of our very own LTR-gals gets to see you in person. Wait, did I say we like this? Actually we’re insanely jealous bitches and wish it could be us. it. When will it be our turn? So for now let’s push aside the jealously and celebrate with our fellow LTR sister her good luck. And we shall try to keep our insane, raging jealousy in check.
UnintendedChoice & theMoonisDown
A Tale of Seeing Robert Pattinson- by Milfy Goodness
Three friends and I went Tuesday June 30th to the Remember Me set. We Checked a very helpful website which told us where to go. We showed up at 11am, so we missed the rehearsal on the Alice & Wonderland statue – too bad, those are pretty hilarious pictures.
We stood on 5th Ave & 76th street, across the street from Rob’s trailer, along with at least 50 other stalkers/girls. After 1/2 hr, one of the P.A.s came over to us and cleared a path for Rob. We had to promise not to run into the street and attack him or yell at him when he came out of his trailer. The paps all lined up on the other side. Then his body guards and personal assistants and other folks formed a circle around him and walked him across 5th Ave and into the park.
When he was safely at the set, we were allowed to follow down and stand on the other side of the path from the statue. Then we watched them film the scene a few times. I took a lot of pictures – he touched his hair a lot during the breaks – I like that Robporn the best, so I captured that a few dozen times. Again – if I knew how to insert a pic
Then he put the RayBans back on (or are they Gucci now?) and the bodyguard group reconvened. Rob paused to take a pic with some girl who must have a connection on set – she was sitting with a bunch of the crew. He put his arm around her and sort of smiled for her phone camera. Then the posse walked him back to his trailer and we took a lunch break.
We wound up at a deli a few blocks away with one of his personal assistants. My friend suggested that she would offer to, um, “take care” of the guy if it got us Rob access. We just laughed and laughed. “Taking one for the team,” she called it. Really, giving one for the team. We watched this guy like a hawk. Was the chicken noodle soup and tuna on a roll for our boy? Then I trailed the guy into the drug store to see what he was buying. Ciggys for Rob? Condoms? We worked ourselves up into a frenzy – but it was just 2 large bottles of water. We trailed this dude back to the set, but he must have known by that point that we were following him and he sprinted across Park Ave. to beat the light and lose us. I would have run, too, but my girlfriends weren’t that committed. Wimps.
So, we went back to the park and sat on some benches and ate our lunches (which was really hard to do – I was too nervous/excited to eat!) and waited for Rob to return. Unfortunately, by then (it was 2pm), the crowd had swelled to at least 200 and at least 2 dozen paps. So, after all the waiting, we were very disappointed when Rob was packed into a car and driven into Central Park from the other side! His crew of protectors then led him down a hill and on to the set. All the fan girls were lined up behind fence-like barricades and kept a very safe distance away.
To our great annoyance, the paps were given much better access than the fans. They were lined up on the other side of a path from us, between us and the set. It was very hard to take pictures in the afternoon because the set was in the shade. Rob spent a good amount of time behind a black screen getting his makeup done – this scene must be after the fight scene, cause they made him look all bruised.
Finally, they rehearsed and filmed a scene where he is talking to the cute girl that plays his little sister. (Did I mention that I have a 3 degrees of separation connection to her?) Her name is Ruby. Anyway, she walked on a bench and he walked next to her, rolling his bicycle.
During this scene was the only time we heard him speak. At the end of the walk, he would lean on the bicycle and put one leg on the bench and talk to Ruby. But one time, he put both legs up. The director called cut and said “right leg up only” and Rob repeated it loudly. All us fan girls then oohed and ahhed because we had actually heard him speak! There was much analysis of the comment (not that any was needed – I did mock one or two teenagers near me for their swooning over his repeating his blocking directions).
After filming that a few times, they moved the whole scene one bench further from all of us. Now it was 4pm and the sky had gotten really dark. I decided to leave before I got poured on. I chatted up one of the P.A.s briefly – he had been in charge of all of us – keeping us quiet and reminding everyone over and over to turn off their flashes on their cameras. I asked him what his job title was. he said “security production ass’t” and I said that it thought it might be “fan girl wrangler” and he laughed and admitted that it was pretty much what he had been reduced to. I was just laying the groundwork so when I visit again, maybe he’ll recognize me and remember how funny/clever I am, so he’ll agree to give Rob a note from me.
