Robert Pattinson hit by taxi, report says

Twilight star Robert Pattinson, 23, was hit by a taxi cab in New York City Thursday afternoon as he tried to escape a crowd of fans, People.com reports. The actor is in Manhattan filming the movie Remember Me, where he has been hounded by overzealous fans eager to get a look at him. On Thursday he reportedly attempted to run across the street near the Strand bookstore and was clipped on his hip by a cab. The driver reportedly stopped on impact. Pattinson walked away from the scene and did not appear to be seriously hurt. The actor recently hired his own security team, People.com reports, to supplant the security provided by the film's production company, Summit Entertainment. Summit has since released a statement downplaying the incident and declaring Pattinson's fans innocent in the matter. "Rob Pattinson is fine, the reports are exaggerated, and it was not caused by fans," that statement said. "Production continues."

    HA. This is hilarious.
    And anna, don’t take it so personally. It’s not like you even know the guy. You’re probably just a little twilight obsessed fan-girl.

  • Nikiki

    And anna, learn how to type, use grammar, and spell.

    If he didn’t find it so necessary to “escape his fans”, he may not have had the incident occur.
    It’s a shame celebrities get amnesia so soon in their careers.

    bethofspring – what gives “fans” the right to mob an actor while he’s working. No one has the right to put there hands on someone with out their permission. He was totally mobbed on Monday by so called “fans”. He smiled and was polite during it. I don’t think most actors would have been so polite.
    Also the studio has said fans weren’t involved at all in the cab incident. His idiot secutity guards rushing him across the street walked him right in front of a cab.

    thats funny he is hott but still that is funny, i do still feel bad for him!

  • nibbles

    Jeez he’s not superman.

  • Jane

    Ah, a mindless, psychotic hoard. Sounds like Twilight fans to me!
    I’m glad Pattinson is OK, but I hope it doesn’t take him or someone else getting hurt to get people to reconsider this crazy stalker obsession. You call it being a fan, he’d probably call it assault. The poor guy’s all but said that the attention makes him nervous and he’s afraid of getting stabbed.
    Times like this, he’s probably regretting he ever heard of Twilight.
