NEW YORK — A little light drizzle in Times Square didn’t stop die-hard “Twilight” fans from lining up before dawn for a chance to meet two [movie id="414921"]“New Moon”[/movie] stars, Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed, just hours before theaters were to begin showing the film. The line stretched down Broadway and onto a side street as fans held umbrellas and proudly bore franchise T-shirts while waiting to get autographs and snap some pictures.
Lutz and Reed made their way into the Times Square Toys “R” Us late in the afternoon, yet one more stop in a whirlwind promotional tour that has brought them from red carpets to talk shows to shopping-mall events. A bit tired but always happy to greet fans, the duo stopped to chat with MTV News as the crowds inside went wild. After all this time, after all this talk about the film, was there anything they hadn’t talked about?
“Wow, you’re really putting me on the spot right now!” Reed answered. “There are a lot of things I would like to talk about outside of the ‘Twilight’ world.”
“For me, it’s the charity work ,” Lutz said. “We all have a voice and we’re all a part of different affiliates and charities.”
After the brief chat, the stars headed off to meet the fans. And the fans couldn’t have asked for more. “It was so worth the 10-hour wait,” said Brianna Aguirre. “Since 7 o’clock in the morning. I said, ‘Hi,’ and they said, ‘Thank you for coming.’ It moved too quick!”
While she waited, Kim Cawthorne proudly clutched a new purchase. “This is my Edward Cullen pillow!” she announced. “I wanted a Jacob one but they don’t sell the Jacob. It comes with a blanket. I’m going to have him in my bed with me!”
