The gossip site TMZ
posted fuzzy pictures of Romney and his wife Ann, who apparently were spotted at a Sunday screening of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" along with two unidentified young men in Del Mar, California.
"After the movie, Mitt and Ann (with no bodyguards in sight) hit up a pizza place across the street," TMZ.com reported. "We're told he was super-friendly to everyone, even posing for a few pics."
According to 10NEWS
.com, Romney owns an oceanfront beach home in La Jolla, several miles from Del Mar.
news says Romney first admitted that he was a fan of the “Twilight”series during a 2011 interview on NBC’s “Today” show, after he was asked about books he had recently read.
“I like silly stuff too,” he said. “I mean, I like the ‘Twilight’ series. I thought that was fun.”
“You like vampires?” the surprised interviewer asked.
“I don’t like vampires personally. I don’t know any,” he said with a laugh. “But you know, my granddaughter was reading it and I thought, 'Well this looks like fun.' And so I read that.”
Comedian Bill Maher wasn't surprised Romney liked the vampire series. On Sunday, he took to Twitter and compared Mitt Romney to a vampire.
"Just read Twilight written by Mormon," he tweeted
, "- makes sense, cuz like Romney its about a semihuman who lives in fantasy world and sucks on our blood (sic)."
