Steven Spielberg Snubbed Chelsea Clinton's Wedding to Prepare His New Movie

Instead of attending the high-profile nuptials, the filmmaker paid a visit to a farm in Widecombe-in-the-Moor in preparation for a new movie 'War Horse'.

Director Steven Spielberg missed out on seeing Chelsea Clinton marry so he could spend the day with piglets on a farm in England in preparation for a new movie. The "Jurassic Park" filmmaker was one of a handful of A-list celebrities invited to attend the wedding of former U.S. President Bill Clinton's only daughter to Marc Mezvinsky last weekend.

The New York event was one of America's most high-profile nuptials in recent years - but Spielberg snubbed the affair so he could pay a visit to a farm in Widecombe-in-the-Moor. The director plans to shoot new movie "War Horse" in Dartmoor on the 450-acre Holwell Farm.

Owner Philippa Hughes tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "It has been chaotic but very memorable. He came here last Saturday for a recce of the area. It was Bill Clinton's daughter's wedding and much of the world's media thought he was there."

"We showed him around the farm, showed him the views and he met the animals, like our piglets and Dartmoor ponies. He was very friendly and unassuming. He loved the animals and we found him a very easy person to be around."

"Some of the Americans among the crew were very impressed with Dartmoor. When you tell them the landscape has remained virtually unchanged for centuries, they can't quite believe it. It's such an iconic landscape."

Spielberg's latest project, based on Michael Morpurgo's novel, tells the story of a horse shipped to France during World War I.
