Out And About: Kate Bosworth in New Zealand's Southern Alps Sights

Kate Bosworth and boyfriend James Rousseau take in the view of the Southern Alps from Liebig Dome yesterday.

Here's a nice article from The New Zealand Herald:

She may be one of Hollywood's hottest young stars, but Kate Bosworth is "just like a normal person" say the New Zealanders who met her.

The Superman Returns
and Blue Crush actress did a spot of sightseeing in the Southern Alps yesterday with her boyfriend, British model James Rousseau.

Bosworth has been in the country since November to film the action-fantasy movie Laundry Warrior with Australian actor Geoffrey Rush, who has starred in Shakespeare In Love and Pirates of the Caribbean.

From Glentanner Park the 25-year-old was taken on a 45-minute scenic flight around the Mt Cook and Westland National Parks and the Murchison, Tasman Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers.

Glentanner Park employee Annie Corrigan was also on the flight.

"She's really, really lovely and down to earth." We were all asking if we could have a picture with her and she said it was fine.

"She was sort of a girl next door."

Bosworth even invited Ms Corrigan, who is also from the US, to have coffee at the Glentanner restaurant after the helicopter returned.

"I was like 'Of course'. We were just talking about random stuff, travelling, where they'd been so far, how long I'd been here, why I was here and how much they'd enjoyed New Zealand. It was just like hanging out with two of my friends."

Helicopter Line base manager Nicola Graham said Bosworth's movie producer arranged the outing and the couple had stayed at Mt Cook's Hermitage Hotel the night before.

"She seemed really normal. She had a hat on, really casually dressed and just really happy to be there," Ms Graham said.
