LOS ANGELES - Thousands of fans from as far away as New York filled the streets near the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) on Monday, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite "Twilight" stars attending the evening premiere of the latest film in the vampire series - "New Moon."
Some "twi-hards" - as they call themselves - arrived as early as Thursday afternoon to secure a place in line for tickets allowing them to watch the stars' arrivals on the red carpet. The 800 available tickets were all distributed by Monday morning.
Some of the cheering fans - mostly young women - were wearing T-shirts proclaiming their allegiance to either Robert Pattinson or Taylor Lautner, the bloodsucking stars of "New Moon." One woman held a homemade sign saying, "We love Robert and Taylor they rock our socks."
