Near Miss for Robert Pattinson (Updated)

Actor Robert Pattinson (Hufflepuff great Cedric Diggory in Goblet of Fire) had a near miss after being clipped by a cab while filming a new movie in New York. The BBC reports that Robert was hit by a taxi as initial reports say he tried to escape a crowd of over eager fans and was nipped by the cab as he tried to cross the street. The report says Robert was not seriously hurt in the mishap, and notes: 'The actor's security guards were reportedly furious about the scuffle and one was heard shouting: "You see what you did, you almost killed him." The Press Association also cites an onlooker who said "It's been non-stop busy all day with people trying to get a glimpse of him, and the crowd goes nuts when they do see him.
Update: The Daily News has more on this, citing a spokesperson for Summit, who confirms that Rob is fine, and the cab "barely grazed" the actor. The article also cites the spokesperson as saying this incident " was not caused by his fans," but declined to elaborate on how or what exactly took place in the incident where Robert was grazed by the cab.

I like both series. It’s Harry Potter first and foremost with me but I don’t understand the hatred between both like kingdom. Why are people calling Rob a traitor? He was in Gof and was killed. Was he not suppose to work after that?

Poor dude. I’d hate to have fans that retarded. Good on security for telling them off. Maybe then it’ll get it in their skulls that they have to calm the hell down.

Seriously, they’re so crazy. The article I read said that they were using Twitter to discuss where he was at any given moment and group up to stalk him.


Some people have NO respect.

This (unfortunately) isn’t true. Summit confirmed “Rob Pattinson is fine, the reports are exaggerated and it was not caused by fans. Production continues.”

But I would believe it anyway. These crazy fangirls want themselves some Edward – for WHATEVER reason. But I won’t even get into how ridiculous Twilight is. Ugh. I hate Twilight fangirls :/

The poor guy. He just wants to be an actor with a private life, not a teen hearthrob. Leave him alone!

Poor guy, Twilight fan girls continue to demostrate why going hormonal and crazy over a boy is just wrong.

Oh, God, those Twilight fans are really, really dangerous. More than I thought! _ That poor guy. That’s why you can’t say yes to anything you haven’t googled first.

I am glad to hear that he is doing okay and do hope that this serves as a good lesson to all of his rabid fangirls to be more cautious as they try to stalk – I mean, approach – him.

I always hate to hear about these types of incidents. We were just talking about Princess Di the other day and while it wasn’t crazy fans that lead to her death, the paparazzi who make their money from the fandom did. Celebrities are people. They deserve to conduct their lives without having to fear for them from their audience or the press.
