Robert Pattinson almost got his fine ass ran over by a cab during filming recently. Details from PinkIsANewBlog.com (One of the few gossip blogs I find credible) read:
“Rob Pattinson is quickly learning the hazards of filming a movie in New York City – he was hit by a taxi cab on Thursday while running away from hysterical fans! RadarOnline.com witnessed the Twilight star get clipped by a cab around noon in front of the Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street. He was not hurt. 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!” Pattinson will be shooting around Manhattan for the next four weeks”
So what ‘cha think? Who’s fault is this? The crazies for well … being crazy? The bodyguards for not guarding Rob’s body? Rob’s for lettin Bella’s clumsyness rub off on him? Or nobody’s, shit happens? At any rate, please crazy teens of the world – ease up on the poor guy ‘cuz not only are you making it harder for us sane fans to meet and interact with the cast but you’re also making it hard for the poor guy to live his life. Remember, Rob is HUMAN. If he gets hit by a taxi, there will be no Edward Cullen to miraculously wedge himself in between the two and save the day!
