Rob Pattinson is quickly learning the hazards of filming a movie in NYC: first he was attacked by hundreds of fans on the street and yesterday he was hit by a taxi cab while running away from hysterical fans! Time to call in the National Guard.
Robert Pattinson is probably never going to come back to NYC after the mayhem that has ensued since his arrival. Pattinson was trying to shop for some books at The Strand when he was harassed by those pesky teenage “Twihard” girls who were swarming him like mad. When he quickly departs the store, he gets clipped by a cab. Luckily, Pattinson wasn’t injured and in typical NYC fashion the bodyguards screamed at the fans: “You see what you did, you almost killed him!” Hah, I love it!
The 23-year-old actor has been in NYC filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me. A team of five security guards were trying to fend off the crowd of teen girls when Rob was leaving the bookstore. It was pouring rain as they tried to hustle him quickly across the street to the safety of his trailer. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened and it appeared the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned before 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!” Lucky for Pattinson he will be shooting around Manhattan for the next four weeks. I bet he just loves it here
Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester is on top of the world with a hit TV show and a new music contract with Universal. Meester keeps a low profile, but unfortunately stardom comes with a price and its times like this when the skeletons start to come out of the closet. TMZ is reporting that the Queen Bee filmed a sex tape with a boyfriend, which is now being shopped around by an adult film company. The tape was supposedly shot a few years ago and a company called celebhotline.com is negotiating for the video. Leighton’s rep has no comment at this time.
