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.
