Thousands of onlookers stopped in their tracks – and hundreds of cellphones clicked photos of Angelina Jolie – as filming of The Tourist moved into one of Paris’s busiest landmarks early Thursday.

Traffic at the iconic Gare de Lyon train station came to a halt as Jolie, dressed in her chic costume, navigated crowds, scanned the departures list and hurried to a platform. Between takes during the 90-minute shoot, the actress, 34, smiled and called “Bonjour!” to the crowd.

Afterward, Jolie proceeded to an apartment for the afternoon shoot and then had lunch with sons Maddox and Pax, just like she did with daughters Zahara and Shiloh on Tuesday.

Onlookers of the morning shoot, which involved coordinating a group of 200 extras, plus the normal rush of train passengers, were impressed by Jolie. “She was very nice to everyone, very patient,” one restaurant employee tells PEOPLE. “No fuss, and she is trés Jolie,” she adds. “Very pretty.”

Added a station employee who ignored a line of customers in her coffee bar to snap photos of the star: “She’s much more beautiful in person. I can’t believe how beautiful.”
