As first revealed by DLT‘s The Rumorist, Twilight star, Kristen Stewart has been spotted vamping around the Valley. She shut down the MercBar on Monday, and dropped by the D’Back’s game on Tuesday. Now, we’ve got an update on why she’s here, and a lot more about the handsome gentleman seen squiring her around town.
Turns out, Bella Stewart is here filming scenes for a movie adaptation of the iconic novel, “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac. After wrapping up filming in New Orleans, the production was originally scheduled to film in Mexico this week. However, due to the ongoing deadly drug-turf battles, the producers decided to film in and around Greater Phoenix. (Tucson must not have available.)
As for that Ricky Schroeder doppelganger Stewart’s been spotted with? He’s none other than Horizon High School grad and rising Hollywood star, Garrett Hedlund (pictured at right). Hedlund, who’s had a couple of smaller parts in “Friday Nights Lights” and “Georgia Rule,” is starring in the much-anticipated “TRON” sequel coming this December. And now he’s busy showing his “On the Road” co-star all his fav Valley haunts. Which also explains why Stewart showed up to watch the dreadful D’Back’s. Hedlund’s mum is the team’s new PR Director, after abandoning the sinking ship that is Phoenix Women Magazine.
