Fan Ecounter With Garrett, Sam and Kristen


I was going to explain how the latest 3D tech works this week but instead due to increasingly greater demand, I'll tell you about my run-in with Kristen Stewart. Yeah, the cute little chick from Twilight. Let me be clear, I am NOT a fan of the film or the book series. I saw the first flick under durress and I will never watch another one. However, I'll allow a little bit of respect for the author of the series and the actors who play the characters since they have to put up with alot of shit. Some of my friends and I went to a pool bar here in Montreal after work called Sharx. It's a decent place most of the time but this was late Saturday afternoon so the joint was pretty quiet. They've got a disco bowling alley in the back there too, so that's what we hit after we played pool for an hour. While we were waiting to get our shoes at the bowling counter I noticed there was a group of guys waiting as well. I didn't know it at the time but this group included Garrett Hedlund (Friday Night Lights) and a british actor by the name of Sam Riley (Control). Both of them are in town filming On The Road with Kristen Stewart. I did not recognize these guys all night, which annoys me since I would have liked to get a pic with Garrett Hedlund, this guy's going to be huge in a year when Tron Legacy comes out. So there goes a potential boost to my credibility. I was the first of my friends to reach our booth next to our lane when I saw that some punky looking chick was already sitting in our booth. I walked over and started speaking to her french, saying that I thought she had the wrong booth. She had no idea what I said (obviously) so again I asked her in English and she got up and started apologizing. Since so many of you have asked I'll tell you she had dark hair, I have no clue what bloody jewelery she had on, she seemed quite content, was not wearing vampire teeth, and I couldn't tell how if she was 5'5 or 5'6 since I couldn't whip my cock out in the place. A few guys came over and started helping her move the drinks off of our table, we had a good laugh and I said that it was no problem. My friends and I sat down while Stewart and her group took the lane next to ours and one of my friends whispered that the punky chick was Stewart. We were doubtful until the name 'Kristen' showed up on the monitor...yeah it was a pretty good clue. Well no one in my group was going to talk to her (they're fans and like I said I'm not) but she's a celeb so I figured I'd chat her up and see if I could get a laugh. She ended bowling at the same time as me, we laughed about the booth-thing, I said something else that was REALLY sexy and charming, and that was about it. I thought about it and figured it wouldn't be too much trouble to get a pic with her and my friends (I also had my hot little firecracker with me and knew she'd love me for it) so I made sure to talk to her again when I had the chance. I also had a laugh with Hedlund and Riley over something and they seemed like a decent pair of guys. No, I did not see anybody kissing or cuddling. None male-and-female, or male-and-male, or male-and-bowling ball. When it came time for us to leave I interrupted a conversation, apologized for bothering them and explained my situation with a smile and asked her if she'd be willing to have a pic with us. She said 'yes', one of the guys took the photo with my sweet lollipop's camera, and we all introduced ourselves and left. It was a good time, I have only good things to say about them all, and I'm done talking about it. I don't like paparazzi, I find that whole aspect of journalism tasteless and insulting to the craft, and I wouldn't have bothered them at all if I was alone. Why not? Because there's a thin line between printed gossip and journalism but there's an even thinner one between covering artists in the news and denying them privacy. Also...yes...she looked better in person. Msg me Kristen!
Stay cool people.
