My Personal Photos from the Movie Set of “Safe Haven”
Even writers know that a picture is worth a thousand words, so I thought I’d share my photos from my Safe Haven movie set visit last summer in Southport, North Carolina, with you. Note: writers also know that captions are helpful – or we rationalize they are – so here’s my album to get you excited about the release of the movie on February 14. You can read about my walk with author Nicholas Sparks here and my interview with him here.
Just to prove I didn’t just take pictures at some random parade.
Why it’s called a “director’s chair.” I am a big fan of Lasse Hallstrom’s movies, My Life as a Dog, The Cider House Rules, Chocolat, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, the list goes on …
Not Julianne Hough. This is her double, and, yes, she fooled me, too, which is why I have a dozen pictures of her.
We had lunch at Fishy Fishy, the restaurant where my former favorite TV show, Revenge, was filmed. One word: hushpuppies. One more word: Yum.
No spoilers. See the movie.
Author Nicholas Sparks took us inside the house where Josh Duhamel’s character lives. It was fascinating to see all the little details of the production design and to hear his perspective on bringing the book to the big screen.
After walking around Southport with Nick (you know, we’re like BFFs now) and sitting down with him for our real interviews, each of us was given the pair of shoes of our choice from Sole Society. I love these flats, which are so pretty and so comfortable, and I love the fact that even though one of my fellow bloggers chose the same style, they’re each unique. I can’t wait to see which ones Julianne Hough wears in the movie.
Seriously, could she be any cuter?
And could he?
The Safe Haven production presented the mayor of Southport with a $1500 check for the Community Boys and Girls Club.
We got to take pictures with Josh and Julianne.
Notice I also took the opportunity to grab onto Josh.
Yes, Julianne is holding our Formerly Flip Flops bracelets! Ooh, I wonder if she’ll be wearing them in the movie!
