As we told you last week, Team Awful was in the Vancouver area over the weekend. And since we (along with Oprah) ended up getting totally barred from any visits to the Eclipse set, we decided to make the most of our time in the city Robsten currently calls home.
While there were no Robert Pattinson or Kristen Stewart sightings, call it a wee bit of Twilight fate when we ended up at apparently one of Robsten's (and the cast's) frequent hangs for dinner.
"Someone left their jacket here last night," we overheard one of the cute hostesses saying as we were waiting to be seated.
"Oh yeah, that's Ashley Greene's. They'll all be in later anyway, she can just get it then," another hostess responded.
While a common name like that would have probably gone over any normal person's head, you bet our A.T. ears perked up.
"You don't happen to be talking about the Twilight cast," Team Awful said, as we butted into the convo in the nicest way possible.
"Oh yeah, they're in here all the time!" replied hostess one.
We told the hostess gals our day job—writing for this lovely column here for E! (we're not the sneaky goss types)—and of course fessed our love for vampires and such.
Lucky for us, these partick gals are Awful Truth fans themselves and knew we weren't sketch reporters. So our end of the bargain was that we wouldn't name the restaurant (to keep our fab friends out of it, and to help give the Eclipse crew as much peace as possible), and they gave us some fun insider Twi-tidbits from the locals' perspective:
"The whole cast comes in a lot together. For some reason, this is one of the places the paparazzi doesn't constantly find them," dished one of the girls who has seated the Twilight crew dozens of time.
"It looks like they all really get along well. It's always a fun table—they are laughing, joking and just very polite," added the other girl.
A.T.: How about Rob and Kristen, what is their dynamic like?
Hostess One: Doesn't everyone just know that they're dating?
A.T.: Uh, you'd be surprised how many don't want to believe it.
Hostess Two: Oh, well everyone here knows. They are the only cast members who will come in alone a lot. You can just tell by looking at them. They're really cute together, always smiling.
A.T.: Love it! Hate to say it though, but "smiling" and "Kristen Stewart" seem unlikely to be in the same sentence together.
Hostess One: No way. She is incredibly sweet—I'd be a bitch, too, if there were cameras constantly in my face. But she's great, and so is Rob. They just seem to make each other happy.
Check back for part two of our Vancouver journey tomorrow morning for tons more local Twilight goss!
