— Robert De Niro, staying in Buckhead during filming for the Killing Season, has kept a low profile (unlike co-star John Travolta who readers of this column will know has been everywhere around Atlanta lately). He and his wife have "discreetly" dined quite a few times at the St. Regis' new restaurant Astor Court, and is apparently a very big tipper.
— A few of the Hunger Games' stars visited Lenox this week, (gallery) including Miley Cyrus' boyfriend Liam Hemsworth (brother of Chris Hemsworth a.k.a. Thor a.k.a. brother of Loki a.k.a. Tom Hiddleston, who is a beautiful man). *Ahem* and according to @AJCbuzz, the crowd was pretty excited: "These little girls can scream. It's like they're part bat."
Current Filming News:
