New Fan Encounter with Robert Pattinson in Baton Rouge

He just arrived and already, Rob is local news. A Baton Rouge news channel, WBRZ, reports:

One of the stars of the "Twilight" movie series stopped by a Baton Rouge bicycle shop while he was in town this weekend and left with a new bike.

Workers at Capitol Cyclery on Essen Lane confirmed that Robert Pattinson, who plays the vampire Edward in the films, visited the store over the weekend and bought a new bike.

An employee said Pattinson "wasn't there to be a big celebrity" and that they had received other calls about the visit.

"It's getting a bit out of hand," the employee said.

Pattinson and co-star Kristen Stewart, who plays the main character Bella, were reportedly in Baton Rouge and New Orleans to start principal photography for the latest Twilight movie, "Breaking Dawn." Filming for the movie is scheduled to begin in earnest next month.

This report backs up a fan encounter that was shared earlier today:

I have a friend that manages a bike shop here in Baton Rouge, and I brought my bikes in to get fixed. I walk in, and it's my 3 good friends who run the store, and only 2 other people. An older gentleman, and a younger, bearded one. I didn't recognize either so I just kept walking right past them (like 6 inches away from them) straight to the warehouse of the shop.

A half hour later, I realize, this fucking bearded guy is ROBERT PATTINSON. Robert fucking Pattinson. He was wearing a dark baseball cap, jeans, a red flannel shirt, and black shoes (looked like skate/bike shoes). He decides to buy a bike from my friend (a thousand dollar bike that I'm sure you'll see in paparazzi pictures from now on). This is a nice bike, and needs to be setup in the warehouse before sending him with it, so I then find myself in the predicament OF HANGING OUT WITH ROBERT PATTINSON IN A SMALL ROOM FOR AN HOUR. He's the most attractive person I've ever
f*%#$!g met. And his beard? Epic. He's also the sweetest goddamn person, and I didn't ask for a picture, because he seemed to be enjoying the fact that not a single one of us acknowledged his celebrity.

Anyway. That's it. F*%#$!g epic, and I don't even like Twilight. Oh, and that smile? That f
*%#$!g smile? CUTEST THING EVER. He's like, Cedric Diggery nice. Super sweet. Super humble.

Rob got a bike...seems dangerous. Well...if anyone sees him, try not to shriek or anything. It could startle him and we can't have him harmed.
