ROBERT PATTINSON GETS NYPD SECURITY!
Robert Pattinson has been back in New York for just a matter of days — and he’s already giving the local police force a run for its money!
The British actor — in the Big Apple filming his new movie Remember Me — will have officers from the New York City Police Department taking control of his personal security.
“Enough is enough,” a police source told the Irish Central website. “His security people aren’t up to the task of keeping him safe, and they have no idea how to deal with the crowds this guy attracts.”
The source pointed to a well-publicized incident in which the Twilight star ran from a crowd of admirers and was slightly injured when he was struck by a taxi.
“That’s amateur hour,” the police source said. “We have celebrities a lot bigger than this guy who can come and go in perfect safety because we know how to take the right precautions. We have presidents and kings come and go. This poor kid can’t get in or out of a car without things getting dangerous.”
Pattinson, 23, recently admitted that he sometimes goes out in disguise to avoid being spotted by fans.
“I sometimes try going out in disguise,” he said, “but I’m getting more conspicuous. A hat and sunglasses kind of stands out in the middle of the night! I’m learning to spring, though.”
“You go to cities where people scream at you and you think, ‘This is my job,’” he added. “I don’t know what they’re screaming about!
ROBERT PATTINSON GOES OUT IN DISGUISE
Robert Pattinson has a confession — he often goes out in disguise.
The British actor — who became a household name playing vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie franchise — admits he sometimes goes to great lengths not to get recognized.
“I sometimes try going out in disguise,” the British actor told the UK’s Top of The Pops magazine in a new interview, “but I’m getting more conspicuous. A hat and sunglasses kind of stands out in the middle of the night! I’m learning to spring, though.”
“You go to cities where people scream at you and you think, ‘This is my job,’” Rob adds. “I don’t know what they’re screaming about!”
Rob, 23, recently admitted that constantly being followed by fans and photographers is starting to take its toll.
“People ambush me and try and find out what hotel I’m staying at, as well as wanting to touch my hair,” he said.
“Everyone just screams and screams. It still feels surreal.”
“One time, there were these four girls, in Chicago I think, and they had all scratched their necks until they bled.
“And then when they came up to me they had these bleeding scabs. It was gross!”
