If you are a true Robert Pattinson fan, you will appreciate Natalie's story. The lucky lady met R-Pattz at 1 a.m. on the set of Water for Elephants — and it was well worth the long wait! Natalie shares all the details of her serendipitous encounter with OK!
Natalie, along with her mom and aunt, were having lunch in Fillmore, Calif. last week and stumbled upon the Water for Elephants set.
"They didn’t tell us what it was, whose in it, or anything so of course we kind of got nosy and decided to have lunch at the hotel right next to where it looked like they were filming," Natalie tells OK! of asking the crew about the film that was being shot. "And then it was like all of a sudden we’re eating lunch, and we see Robert Pattinson get out of the van and just kind of like walk by us. Our jaws dropped. We were like 'Oh My God!' "
Oddly enough, Natalie says she had plans to see another R-Pattz flick that same night.
"He was wearing a tuxedo so he was in his costume and he just seemed to be really into his character and all that," she explains. "It’s funny because we actually had plans that night to go see the movie, to see Eclipse."
Natalie and her family outlasted all the other fans on set and patiently waited — and in the end it was well worth the wait.
"He was just walking over towards us with his bodyguard and he just came up to us and was like, 'Hey guys,' and smiled at us and then we were just so excited we didn’t even think we were going to see him again, let alone actually meet him," Natalie says. "I mean he was really sweet, he was really soft-spoken and he stayed out there with us for probably like five minutes."
"I got an autograph and it was really cool, I was just in shock," Natalie adds. "After we left we were like, 'Oh, my god that actually happened!' "
Natalie was caught so off guard that she didn't even have anything for R-Pattz to sign his John Hancock on.
"He actually just signed it on my arm, like we didn’t have anything," she says.
Luckily, R-Pattz's bodyguard and driver didn't stop the star from taking the following pictures of Natalie and her aunt with him!
