Twihards stalk, swarm, attack Robert Pattinson in NY


Poor Robert Pattinson. The Twihards have found their Teen Beat heartthrob, and they are going to stalk the young man into an early grave. It seems Robert Pattinson officially arrived in New York last week, and he began filming his new drama Remember Me (with cutie Emilie de Raven) on Monday. It seems over the weekend there were some mixed R-Pattz sightings, but once Robert got to the set Monday morning, the Twihards were out in full stalking force.

According to OK! Magazine, Robert was “overwhelmed” by all of the girls (and probably a few guys). The Twihards were heckling him, trying to get closer, trying to get his attention, trying to touch his filthy hair. While Robert was walking with his bodyguards, a random Twihard even got close enough to Robert to lunge, grabbing him around the neck in a haphazard embrace.

Dozens of photographers trying to get a shot… Adoring fans screaming out his name in the middle of a scene… Minor technical difficulties and an undersized crew… Considering all that could have gone wrong on the first day of shooting for Robert Pattinson’s new film, Remember Me, things seemed to go pretty well on Monday. But that didn’t seem to stop the superstar from becoming more than a bit overwhelmed by it all.

“You could tell it was all starting to get to him, especially the hecklers,” one on-set source reveals to OK!. “He’s been as friendly as possible to everyone; he even nicely brushed off a swarm of girls trying to get a picture with him, but after all the commotion, he needed to take a break for some personal time.”

Indeed, at one point between takes, Rob walked off by himself for a breather. “He sat down by himself, put his head between his legs and took a few deep breaths,” says the source. “But after that, it was right back to work — very professional.”

Monday was only the first of more than 30 days of shooting for the film, almost all of which takes place in Manhattan. Later this week, the cast and crew will be moving indoors where they can hopefully get some more peace and quiet… so long as they don’t go out for lunch!

Poor kid needs a Valium. I should note that in every report I’ve read, Robert comes across as a real gentleman. Most outlets are reporting that if he has the time, he stops for pictures and gives autographs to fans, and is generally a really nice guy. I feel Manhattan Twihards will destroy my boy’s gentle countenance, though. Especially if they keep lunging at him.

    poor guy. he needs a hug.

    f’ng fans, leave him to his job.

  2. photo jojo says:

    He looks like he needs a flea dip.

  3. PrincessJay says:

    He probably doesn’t know how to handle the fame yet. Give it a few more and he’ll be as smooth as all these other seasoned actors.

  4. wfdfsg says:

    OMFG that was really sad 🙁 i would feel so dissed if i was one of the girls but poor GUY!!! that would be hell 🙁

  5. I Choose Me says:

    Those fans scare the crap out of me. Poor guy.

  6. Canuck says:

    That would be a really frightening experience. He didn’t have this happen in Vancouver when they shot there, I wonder why it did New York? They need to get much heavier security or some nutcase is going to harm that guy.

  7. I’ve seen the pics (and blogged about the mayhem) but this is the first time I actually watched the video. I want to hunt thos chics down and smack them around a little bit. OK, a lot. WFT possesses people to behave like that?! I [heart] RPattz and it makes me sad that people are making such idiots of themselves and harassing him like that.

  8. DD says:

    I still don’t get his appeal 🙁

  9. abbizmal says:

    I totally get his appeal. I’d hit it.

  10. clare says:

    Poor Rob. Keep strong. Fans should show repect. It’s sad that so-called fans treat him this way.

  11. seriously people need to back off says:

    seriously people need to back off….I would need a valium too if I was being stalked, swarmed and jumped on by strangers!!

    just because someone is an actor and we deem them a celebrity, doesn’t give everyone the right to stalk their every move and publicly bombard them!

    poor guy.

    and not all admirers are crazy fans…

  12. dew says:

    Isn’t there some kind of shark-cage to protect celebs from crazies?

    It could have wheels to make it easier on the bodyguards, but also lots of handles all around so the bodyguards could just lift it up as needed. The front could be left open with extra bodyguards forming a line around the open front.

    Once they arrived at their destination, they could just twirl the cage around so that the open-front faced the doorway or car/van door.

    And where the heck is Quweenie anyway? Her 15 went by fast!

  13. Ellie says:

    Will you stop being so ridiculously good-looking, Robert? JEEZ.

  14. Nony says:

    Oh gods, I really feel for him. That looks completely terrifying, and I believe that he having trouble handling all the fan attention before.

    Some of those fans need a bitch-slapping. How can they claim to love this guy when at the same time do things that so obviously distress him?

  15. Dingles says:

    I have minimal sympathy for most stars who have to deal with unwanted attention in return for millions of dollars a year, but it was sad to see him nervously running his hands through his hair repeatedly like that; it’s so obvious he isn’t comfortable with all this attention. Hopefully he’ll stay his gentlemanly, charming self and not become hardened by all this chaos.

  16. sizzle says:

    dont kill me for saying this but i find him extremely ugly.

    i wouldnt chase him for my life!


  17. Magsy says:

    I keep thinking this dude is Marcelle from a previous Top Chef series. They could be twins.

  18. FF says:

    He should get a shrink while the going is good.

  19. drica says:
