Robert Pattinson was clipped by a cab this morning while filming in New York City. Before the hyperventilating starts, he’s fine and yes, they’re still making the other two movies. RadarOnline reports:
The 23-year-old London-born actor had been inside most of the morning filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me. A team of five security guards were trying to fend off a crowd of teenaged girls when Rob was leaving the bookstore.
It was pouring rain as they tried to hustle him quickly across the busy street to the safety of his trailer. Some of the teen girls were hysterical and Rob rushed across the road. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened.
It appeared as if the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned. The bodyguard next to him checked if he was okay and then screamed at the fans: “You see what you did, you almost killed him!”
At this point I’d like to be able to say nothing short of his own Secret Service detail can protect Rob Pattinson, but let’s not kid ourselves. If word got out Obama had tickets to the premiere of New Moon in his pocket, he’d be dead inside a locker full of Twilight stickers within the hour. And that’s assuming traffic on the Beltway.
