In the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan , obviously our primary prayers and concern go out to the hundreds of average citizens whose lives were lost or impacted by this disaster.
But this being Celebritology, we are also keeping tabs on the impact that the tragic event is having on figures from the entertainment realm.
People reports that everyone on the set of “Twilight: Eclipse” -- including stars Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner -- has been evacuated from the Vancouver Island beach area of British Columbia, where the film is currently being shot. No significant impact appears to have been felt there, but the move was made as a precautionary measure.
Jimmy Kimmel also was evacuated from a French polynesian island earlier today, and tweeted it about it as it was happening. His most recent Twitter message simply says: “we are evacuating the island. dogspeed.”
Tsunami warnings and advisories have been issued for the California coast.
