Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman are spotted filming Hemingway & Gellhorn on location in San Livermore, Calif. on Monday (April 4). The two were recreating a scene from the Spanish Civil War in a pasture at the corner of Manning Road and Morgan Territory in Livermore, which is in Alameda County (across the bay from San Francisco).
According to the Livermore Patch, Kidman has been exceedingly friendly with locals:
"During the first day of shooting, a few cars lined the country road, with curious folks taking a peek at the filming in this rural area just outside of town. One of the crew told a bystander who asked why they came to Livermore that it had everything they needed for the scene.
'We needed a running creek and some hills,' he said. 'This worked out just fine for us.'
"And for those who came to watch the action near the end of the day, there was a special treat. After shooting wrapped about 7:15 p.m., Kidman's car was exiting the pasture gate when she had her driver stop in front of six adults and five children. The affable actress hopped out of the cream-colored Cadillac and chatted briefly with a few families standing by the gate. The stylish actress and mother of four hugged the children and even posed for pictures with the shocked bystanders."
