I burst out laughing when I read this.
"The Mounties--front line warriors against drug smugglers, busters of counterfeit
money schemes, getter-er of men--have faced their most important assignment to date:
defending Twilight's Robert Pattinson from screaming tweens. On the Vancouver Island
set of the vampire drama's sequel, the Mounties have been responsible for keeping
overexcited fans away from the set.
"Everything went well on the first day but then a group of teenage girls got a little
too close when the filming moved to the Long Beach area of the island," Constable
Brendon Baillant told Radar Online. "They were totally miffed with us when we told
them that they could not get any closer." Kristin Stewart calmed them down by posing
In exchange for Canada's police service's noble work defending Hollywood's valuable
heartthrob community, the film's producers donated $3000 to a Mountie charity that
gives sports equipment to schools. Don't tell them that they'll stand there for free
if you just set up a little table with TimBits. "
WHY the MOUNTIES of all people?? xD
But I guess they're doing a good job...
