According to the popular Ashevegas blog, Asheville has been a hot spot for film and music stars this past month. Here's a round up of the numerous celebrity sightings around town.
John Oats (Hall & Oats) - He was spotted on Biltmore Avenue in downtown Asheville. He wasn't performing while in town so perhaps he was playing tourist for the week.
Ellie Goulding (British pop star) - She was seen eating at 12 Bones (yum!) and then running through the River Arts District. A local journalist speculates she was here visiting her romantic interest Jeremy Irvine, yet another British celeb. Jeremy was spotted in the area during filming for The World Made Straight, a movie based on the novel by local resident Ron Rash.
Noah Wyle (Actor) Best known for his role in the television show ER, Noah was in Black Mountain filming scenes in the aforementioned film, The World Made Straight. Look for shots of downtown Black Mountain in the movie.
Minka Kelly (Actress) A star of Friday Night Lights, Minka was among the other celebs in town for The World Made Straight filming. During her trip, she shared images on her Twitter account highlighting her mountain hike up through Chimney Rock Park.
