Robert Pattinson (photos) is currently driving through the Southern states – New Mexico and Texas so far – and fans are hypothesizing that he’s on his way to visit girlfriend Kristen Stewart (photos) in New Orleans, where she’s currently shooting On The Road. He’s been spotted with a full-on Santa beard sipping beers and ordering wine at restaurants with pal Tom Sturridge (and maybe Sam Bradley) in tow, and has graciously posed for photos with fans, even though he’s clearly attempting one of America’s timeless traditions incognito.
Said one woman who spotted Pattinson in Santa Fe, “He paid with a card in his name. He had the whole beard and hat thing to try to not stand out,” and “…he’s very polite, quiet, un-douchey and knows his wine…And I guess he’s on a road trip with some buddies.”
Look, you guys know we’re fans of Rob, Kristen and everything they do. (Especially each other! Ba dum dum.) But what kills us the most about these two is just how damn normal they strive to be, especially as their fame continues to spiral more and more out of control. While Ashley Greene is off in Paris trying to BFF it up with new co-star Miley Cyrus in the world’s ugliest outfit (Seriously, Ash, you do the jeans and ballet flats look so well, why are you messing with it?!), Rob is eating at a restaurant in Texas called Cricket’s Grill, and he may or may not participated in karaoke while on the road (wink). How can you not love this man?
So be free, roadtripping Rob. We hope you enjoy all the wondrous things America has to offer, especially your girlfriend. And also barbecue. You should definitely try barbecue. Oh, and there’s a great place in Dallas that has killer pork tacos. Have you ever line danced? You totes should… and Central Grocery in New Orleans – oh man! It’ll seem tourist-y but the muffalettas are unreal. You know what – how about we just come along for the ride? We’ll totally sit bitch.
