Robert Pattinson hates New York & its crazed, stalking women

Robert Pattinson has been having a rough time in New York City as he films exteriors on Remember Me, a drama co-starring Emilie de Raven. We’ve previously reported on all of the stalking, swarming and attacking of Pattinson as the poor kid just tries to walk down the street. Now it seems that Pattinson is blaming the whole situation on the city itself, and specifically on New York women. Apparently, Pattinson is homesick for dear old London, where British girls never stalk him. Way to go, New Yorkers! You scared off our sweet little visiting British boy:

Robert Pattinson’s sexy brooding isn’t an act: The “Twilight” star is seriously bummed by New York … and its women! On-set sources from the hunky Brit’s new film, “Remember Me,” now filming in the Big Apple, reveal that the actor is hopelessly homesick for London.

“Robert is dying to get back home,” says an insider. “He’s so over everything. He’s overwhelmed by all the girls — they terrify him! He says girls grab his neck and clothing all of the time, and he’s not used to that. Fans don’t do that to him in London. Everyone there is a little cooler about the fame thing, which is what he’s used to.”

The star’s blatant unhappiness even has his “Remember Me” co-stars concerned. “He’s so skinny and stressed. Everyone on set is worried about him,” confesses our source.

Clearly Pattinson, who shot to fame as teenage vampire Edward Cullen in “Twilight,” isn’t enjoying his heartthrob status — or the female attention. “Robert doesn’t understand why everyone is going so crazy over him,” continues the insider.

“He’s embarrassed by the way girls throw themselves at him. The girls here are stalking him. He stayed in two different hotels over the course of four days just to try to escape the fans who were following him. He’s afraid that if he gives a hand, they’ll take the whole arm. He’s being advised by security not to encourage the crowd, so he doesn’t even look up anymore.”

True to form, the gorgeous star kept his head down early last week at the Crestwood Train Station in Yonkers, where “Remember Me” was filming. During one break, he headed to local bakery Martine’s, where an eyewitness observed, “He was completely silent in public, but when he got back to the crew, he was saying how glad he was to be away from prying eyes in Manhattan.”

This isn’t the first time that Pattinson’s public paranoia has reared its head. He told an Australian magazine back in June that he started crying while shooting “New Moon” in Italy because, “I [cry] when people are screaming at me.”

He cries when the fans get excited? I understand crying if they’re swarming him – as they’ve done before – but crying because girls are yelling “Woohoo! Edward is the God of Vampires! Woo!”? Pattinson is so emo. That must be why I love him. Note to New York women: poor little emo English boys think you’re too hardcore. Tone it down for visitors, okay?

    Maybe it’s just me but…doesn’t he look a little like Ryan Phillipe in the 1st and 3rd pics? Just a little bit….anyone else see it?

  2. Deniz says:

    I feel like it would be mostly the tourists who would be going crazy over him like that. New Yorkers see movies filmed pretty often in Manhattan. But maybe that’s just me?

  3. rbsesq says:

    Deniz, I would have to agree. Probably Twihards who followed him.

  4. Iggles says:

    A teeny bit. It’s the hair and sunlight combo.

    I think Ryan is hotter.

  5. ummmm says:

    Just so you know, Rob was joking when he said he cried when girls screamed at him. That is Rob’s sense of humor. That is why we love him.

  6. wow says:

    You’re right, Deniz. People who actually reside in NY aren’t going to go all ape-sh*t over Robert. Seeing celebs there is the norm, not an oddity.

    And R-Patts always seems to look as if he just woke up and needs a bath or something. He should get together with Lindsey Lohan who has mastered that same look.

    I don’t know, NY teenage girls and pre-teens can’t be that different from the rest of the country about their idols. Thank god I am nowhere near where this hot mess is filming.

  8. sarcra says:

    He just needs to only film movies when it’s not summer and the teenybopper fans have to be in school. I’m sure he’d be left alone fine then!

  9. Eileen Yover says:

    Kaiser-it’s become clear to me that you and I share the exact taste in men. Its so great to know that when I come on here, you have kept me up to date on my “boyfriends!”
    Poor Rob-he’d better toughen up! He has two more Twilight movies to film and I’m sure it will only get worse!

  10. Beth says:

    This really bums me out. I like a happy Rob. The crazies need to leave him alone.

  11. KDRockstar says:

    After listening to two moms gush about him, I rue the whole Twilight phenom. He was a much better Cedric, poor guy.

  12. Exiled says:

    wahhhh get over it unibrow.

  13. Ned says:

    He seemed to like MARRIED Australian actresses, though.

  14. Tina says:

    I don’t think Robert Pat is worth stalking/swooning over. Overratedddd.

  15. Fiona says:

    Poor guy!!!These stalkers are hell on earth!People should have more manners, independent of the age, and know the limits.

  16. Alison says:

    I saw the interview where he talked about how he felt like crying the first time he had to deal with a huge screaming crowd. It didn’t sound like he meant he was crying like a scared baby, it was more a physical response to so much energy being directed at him. He also said he now kind of goes numb in situations like that because it’s so weird. He seems like a good guy and it must be difficult to balance wanting a successful career with all the teen idol insanity.

  17. Jess says:

    I feel bad for him!

  18. Anji says:

    haha! he will go nuts in a few weeks time!!
    well hes sure overrated.
    i am 17 and i find him like an uncle. not hot.

  19. jvon says:

    Maybe he’ll get so scared that he’ll wash his hair so no one will recognize him.

  20. James says:

    Bullshit on the ‘New Yorkers are too cool to stalk a movie star because they see them all the time’. New York is not what it used to be. It took a bad turn in the mid nineties and it has it’s fair share of tired people that actually live in Manhattan.

  21. me says:

    I think alot of it has to do with the fact that it’s summertime and fans don’t have other obligations to fulfill like school, and I agree he does look a little like Ryan Phillipe in those pics.. I feel bad for the poor guy
