FROM HOLLYWOOD CRUSH: After months of filming in rain-drenched Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, “New Moon” stars Nikki Reed and Kellan Lutz must have felt right at home in Manhattan as a persistent drizzle lingered over the city. But unlike shoots for their vampire romance, the onscreen duo stayed toasty and dry inside the Times Square Toys “R” Us greeting fans and signing autographs for the final leg of the “Twilight” mall tour.
About 500 lovely ladies and a few fellows (not a surprising ratio by now) waited for hours in a line that snaked around the block, with some like Julianne Castillo and Vanesa Rayes, both 18 from Jamaica, Queens, having been outside since before 6 a.m.
“We got up at four o’clock in the morning. We were outside by 5:30 in the morning,” Julianne said. “We want to be the first ones on line. That’s when all the excitement is there from the actors. We want to have the energy on that paper.”
