Few things are cooler than the life of a Teen.com editor than hanging out on movie sets with celebrities. (Like, does it get any better than that sentence right there?) And the latest movie set we got to hang out on, ya know, after getting shipped off to Montreal for Warm Bodies or overseas to London for Snow White and the Huntsman, was the set of Safe Haven in Southport, North Carolina. In case you’re not too familiar with the latest Nicholas Sparks book-turned-movie, don’t worry even a little since we’re about to tell you EVERYTHING you could possibly wanna know, from what Julianne Hough looks like in person to what kinda snacks the cast and crew (and okay, we) got to indulge in behind the scenes.

So keep clicking through for our 5-part play-by-play of our visit…

Part One: Tour of Southport

I don’t mean to say that this town is literally straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie, but like, it actually is. The first stop on our tour was of the picturesque town (and by “our,” I mean myself and two other online reporters) where the movie was shot. We got a glimpse of “Alex’s house” (played by the very sexy Josh Duhamel), the restaurant, Ivan’s, where Julianne Hough’s character, Katie, works and more.

Then we drove a few minutes away to a quaint little yellow house to chat with the one, the only Nicholas Sparks! He brought his pup and his Cody Simpson-lookalike son with him, so that was fun, and so was the interview — he confessed to watching The Notebook over and over and also gave the scoop on Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, who met on the set of his movie, The Last Song, back in 2009. Yeah, obviously I had to go there.

SIDE NOTE: After all the interviews were done, we all went into the little cottage to use the bathroom and Nicholas was on line behind me. Not to be weird or anything but, like, OMG.

Part Two: Into the Woods!

    I was listening to Radio Baha\’i this past weenekd when I heard a commercial that did not settle well with me. It stated that if you were racist, sexist and several other things then you did not belong in the Baha\’i Faith. I thought about the message and myself and wanted to write to you because I have been a Baha\’i for 40 years and I have struggled with all of those things within the arms of Baha\’u\’llah. Some of them I have overcome and some I am still struggling with. I am glad that I have had the struggle within the Faith instead of outside it and would like to ask you to reconsider that commercial to say that if you are having problems with these issues then the Faith is for you. We are not perfect and we struggle, but if you know that your feelings are troubling you, look to the Faith for assistance. It seemed to me that the commercial was pushing people away and surely we are an embracing community despite all of our faults. and struggles. Thank you
