A St. Louis beauty salon owner who found a script for The Twilight Saga: New Moon in the trash received an invite to the film's premiere after returning it to the studio rather than selling it to a tabloid newspaper, the Associated Press reported.

Casey Ray found two scripts, one for the vampire sequel New Moon and one for a different movie, titled Memoirs, and returned them. As a thank-you, she was invited to attend the movies' premieres, her lawyer told the AP.

Ray recently was waiting for her fiance to finish work when she spotted two scripts in a trash container. She was outside a hotel where actors were staying during a St. Louis shoot for the upcoming George Clooney movie Up in the Air. It's not clear how the scripts wound up in the bin.

The Clooney movie includes actress Anna Kendrick, who is also in New Moon. A spokeswoman for Kendrick, Lisa Perkins, told the AP that the actress wouldn't have left scripts lying around.

When Ray found the scripts, she considered leaking them to a national tabloid but decided against it, said her lawyer, Al Watkins.
