Fans didn't get to see Pattinson up close... Guess who did.
CHICKAMAUGA, GA (WRCB) - Their reasons for adoring Robert Pattinson may vary, but they're all here for the same reason. They all hope for the chance to lay their eyes on the Twilight Saga star.
"I just think he looks cute," Saddler Emory says.
"I love his eyes, they are gorgeous," Destiny Johnson adds.
"We're just hoping to get a glimpse or if he'd say thanks for coming or just wanted an autograph,"Samantha Johnson says.
It surely wasn't for a lack of enthusiasm or patience. Some of these folks have been here since the wee hours of the morning when Channel 3 arrived. The storyline here is he filmed and snuck right out, under the noses of all these crooning ladies.
Johnson says she was disappointed, but not giving up. She adds, "People were crying. One lady was furious."
There is one local person who got to meet him: The "ice cream man."
"He's real nice, a normal person to me," Tony Gross says.
Apparently Pattinson had a craving for a cool treat in the July North Georgia heat. So the ice cream man was summoned to the set. Pattinson's choice?
"Vanilla big dipper," Gross says.
A Vanilla Big Dipper is similar to a sundae cone. Some call it a nutty buddy.
