"I just had my bags settled into my room and was just looking around and the doorbell rings and there is a man and a woman standing there with a hot pecan pie," Danny DeVito told reporters in New York recently.
"'Hi, y'all. How are you?' They're the neighbors and they just brought me a pie. It was just so far out. I didn't know what to do. I was like 'Come on in!' I wanted to give them a drink or something, but they were like, 'No, just wanted to bring you a pie.' Of course, I ate it. It was very good."
So, did the film's director welcome any pie-bearing visitors during his stay?
"I was sort of staying in the 'Blair Witch Project' district of Alabama," Burton explained. "I was sort of out of the way, which I was happy with. I know people like Ewan (McGregor,) there would be a knock at the door and I don't think Ewan and his family had to cook or buy a meal for the first few weeks. So, people are nice that way, but I'm not used to that kind of thing."
