Robert Pattinson hit by cab during Twi-hard attack

June 18th, 2009 // 53 Comments

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.

    I dont know if I believe that these pictures are from today. Its has been pouring sheets of rain today in NYC, there is no sunshine and its so cold. Those pictures dont make sense.

  3. shift

    Almost got him.

    Hope Robert is okay!

    All these photos look set up anyway. All the “fans” look like they’re straight out of Central Casting. Nothing like generating a little hype…

    I always get this guy and Pat Robertson confused… imagine how let down I was when I read the article.

  12. Stinky

    Even if it is a set-up, what are they setting up? It’s like, some action movie tough guy he is, “stunned” by being gently tapped by a cab while crossing the street! It didn’t even knock him down. Deer in the headlights, more like…

  13. name

    I still don’t know who the hell it is that these dumb teeny sluts are chasing after. Maybe I’m just out of it because I only enjoy good movies

  14. U.S. Secret Service

    I hope you realize that if we chose to, we could misconstrue that last paragraph just enough to arrest you for threatening the president.
    We’ve done it before. Oh yes.

    LIfe sucks. Dodging a gaggle of ladies in NYC…..Guy has problems…my heart goes out to him. Then again, they are all 15 and if he acts on it, 15 will get him 20…….in the Federal Lock Up…….

  16. Deva

    I guess wishes don’t come true. Think of all the useless, little teenage twats who would kill themselves if he died. See, I can think positively.

    What an idiot, look both ways you next time you horses ass.

    those pictures can be from today? there’s no rain?

    and also – that body guard is doing a pretty terrible job of protecting him

  20. veronicav

    I have never seen teenage girls act like this – even when I was a teenager – especially in NY. Where are these kids parents? Oh…. they are right next to them – no wonder they act like out of control idiots. Rob needs to start talking smack about these ugly, ugly fans – they’ll go away and therestill will be enough left for the BO.

  22. You know, that contextual word-linked advertising is occasionally ridiculous. I moused-over “movie” and got a link to’s entry for the word “movie”. Like OH SHIT I WONDER WHAT THIS WORD MEANS DON’T KEEP ME IN SUSPENSE.

  23. cutesy

    Poor guy… Leave him alone!!

  24. Dread not

    @ 7, 8 , 9

  25. Christopher

    How does that line go again? “Tear him apart and burn the pieces. It’s the only way.”

  26. fan

  28. JC

    These pics are from the set of his latest movie from a week ago. Its called Remember Me. Check it out.

  29. Where have all the good men gone

    Why are all the young actors coming out of London so ugly now. What ever happened to the Richard Burton types? I want to see men in my movies, not little baby faced boys like this jerk. Are you listening Hollywood!!!!!!!

  30. page six

    Ugh. Stupid tweenie stalkers. Anyway. I loveeeeeeeeeee him.

  31. abba

    Nah, that pic is from yesterday my friends saw him yesterday today was the rainy day. damn those fan bitches are like the post men rain, sleet snow…

  32. abba

    Oh, wait, check out the dude’s crotch…he’s PACKING! I just became a fan. those teen bitches can’t handle that!

  33. I heard that the actual event wasn’t as tramatic as first reported.

  34. I'm so Vapid

    What’s up with the British invasion?
    I say if we bring one over, we have to give one of ours back!
    Say…I’ll take Katie Price, you take..ummm..Brittany.
    Now we’ll take McCartney, you can have Billy Ray Cyrus.
    See? It’s like a hostage swap! I need to be the Ambassador to England….

  35. Rhialto

    Luckily nothing bad happened folks! If i was Robert Pattinson i would have dramatized it a bit just after the incident.I would have dragged my leg a bit or walked limp just to stir it a bit up!

  36. Anonymously Amused

    XDXD Oh my god. It’s so wrong to laugh and I know I shouldn’t ’cause he could have been injured, but imo, he could have required far more medical attention if the taxi cab hadn’t gotten there first. Fangirls=nutzo. XD

  37. Darth

    How about coming out the trailer after the incident hunchbacked and with an eyepatch?

  38. spinal

    He’s the new Orlando Bloom. Sort of pretty, but boring as a block of wood.

    And teenage girls are savage. He better pray his security stays on point 24/7, or one day his body parts will show up on eBay in little glass jars.

  39. Hot Stuff

    lol why are his bodyguards some old grandpas. can’t he get Jackie Chan or a team of ninjas or something. the poor guy. i’d protect him, lol.

  40. has anyone noticed that all female twilight fans are horrible?

  41. Natalie

    Even though the man makes me grimace, I do have a smidgen of sympathy for his unfortunate lot in life. No man, unwashed or over-publicized, should be subject to that kind of physical and emotional abuse…Few things are more heart-wrenching than seeing a swarm of obsessed, brainless, teenage worshipers pawing and vibrato-screaming a poor man to death…He has my condolences

  42. stacie

    i feel sorry for Robert, before twilight he was such an ordinary guy, now he has to deal with all these screaming pre-teens and paparazzi.

  44. You wanna enjoy a FAKE-CELEBRITY LIFE?
    GO TO AMERICA, folks!!


  46. bob

    why isn’t he injured at all?no fair. he looks like a freak who has too much hair but just refuses to shave it off. he is ugly and he has got no talents. he can’t act. why do girls go crazy over him? they seriously need to wear glasses. Rob told the BBC: “I got expelled from my school when I was 12 – I was quite bad. I never ever did my homework. he’s got no brains either.

  47. Amanda

    Poor Rob…he looks so frustrated. I feel bad for him. He had no idea what he was getting into with this Twilight thing…but I LOVE him.
