Celebrities and Climbers

Katie Holmes: (Temporary) North Fork Resident

There ‘s been a lot of celebrity talk on the North Fork these past few weeks as Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin et al have been filming “The Romantics” in and around Southold. (Katie plays a bridesmaid.) I ran into Chris Baiz, of The Oldfield Vineyards, whose property has been the site of the movie set – and the home of Holmes and crew for many days. Chris is a chatty fellow but didn’t give much away – though he did mention that Tom Cruise had helped him put a few cases of wine away. “Katie even took a picture of it.” Did he ask for a copy? Chris shook his head. “But I’m hoping they might send me one.” Then Chris told me a story about the papparazzi who had to buy ladders from the local hardware store (Hart’s) to get a look at the celebrities who were filming a wedding scene. “They must have sold about $1,000 worth of ladders that day,” Chris said.
