SAUGUS, Mass. — A couple hundred girls in your stereotypical Hot Topic style black band t-shirts and their moms have swarmed a stage set for a question and answer session with “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson that’s scheduled for about three hours from now.
Half are standing, and half are sitting. But they all look comfortable preparing to see their beloved “Edward” and have him possibly answer one of their own questions.
Scattered among the crowd you can see the lucky few people with their special “Twilight” t-shirts that signify that they will be one of the 500 who get to see Pattinson in person and get an exclusive poster signed by him.
The crowd this afternoon is tame compared to uncontrollable scenes reported in San Francisco and Chicago earlier.
This isn’t really the mob scene we were expecting, but it’s still early.
Blast met Pattinson this afternoon at a photo shoot in Boston and we’re here at the Square One Mall. Blast will bring you more, including a special TWILIGHT EXTRA issue of Blast Magazine featuring our Twilight coverage, movie review, interviews, photos and more!
OMG..Rob Pattinson is soo HOT in person. I was lucky enough to get a wristband because I wanted 15 hours but it was all worth it in the end. Plus, he said I have pretty eyes. He is so sweet and amazing and HOT!!!
I also waited from 4:30pm on Thurs. until 7am Friday, in the COLD and RAIN! It was awful, but it was worth it. I got the shirt, and the coveted wristband. The Hot Topic people were awesome, gave us pizza and water and somewhere around 2am (maybe), when they noticed we were all slipping into hypothermic comas, they gave us hand warmers, so, yeah, they were good to us. Robert is very good and sweet to his fans. He is to be admired. His security staff were somewhat hostile, though, especially some female, looks to be in her late thirties, looks like a bar room smoker in a business dress, frizzy outdated curly hair, dirty blondish, just past her shoulders, when we first walked in to Hot Topic for the signing (YES, I mean YOU sister!), She needs to get the pissy look off of her face, and not glare at Robert’s fans as if they are trash. Perhaps she should look for a job that she enjoys? Ha ha!
