'Eclipse' Star Bronson Pelletier Assaulted, Nose Broken at 'Twilight' Convention

As werewolf Jared in the 'Twilight' saga, 23-year-old Bronson Pelletier can count on a pack of support in a showdown. But faced with some real-life foes at a recent 'Twilight' convention in England, the young Canadian actor found himself in a very scary situation.

Four men, who were allegedly drunk guests at a nearby wedding in the same venue, attacked Pelletier in the men's room of a Hilton hotel where he was a main attraction at 'Eternal Twilight 4,' a fan expo packed with teenage girls in Birmingham, about 120 miles from London (Peter Facinelli was the biggest 'Twilight' star originally booked to appear, but was ultimately a no-show).

Pelletier suffered a broken nose in the confrontation, during which the men reportedly struck and headbutted him until he was able to escape. Police chased the suspects, and witnesses say cops used a Taser to restrain one. All four were arrested on suspicion of assault; two have since been released and two were granted bail, pending further investigation. The motive for the attack has not been made public.

A source told the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph, according to WENN, "Bronson was really angry and upset. These guys were very nasty. They were so drunk, they probably didn't even realize they were picking on a Hollywood actor."

The 5'11" actor, who will soon be seen in the two-part 'Breaking Dawn' films currently in production, visited a New Zealand convention last year and told a local news outlet about his efforts to buff up, as he prepped for his debut in the franchise, 2009's 'Twilight' sequel 'New Moon': "We worked out an hour and a half each day, we were doing stuff like Muay Thai, Brazilian jujitsu, conditioning strength training -- it was pretty intense stuff."

This is WRONG it was a crew member that got headbutted and sent to hospital NOT Bronson. The crew member stepped inbetween the men and Bronson since Bronson didn't want a bodyguard at the parties. I can confirm this because I was there and saw the crew member that got attacked.

That's not even what happened! I was at that convention too, and he was signing autographs the next morning, he was not injured at all! He was just really tired and the hilton staff brought him some breakfast to cheer him up. Like Ghost said, it was actually a crewmember who was injured :( he was okay in the end though. Bronson was in a 'confrontation' but the bodyguards apparently prevented him from doing anything he'd regret before it got too involved. Why is this just coming up now? It feels like ages ago! Lol xxx

Also, this has shown me how much the media actually twists the truth. I'll be very wary of trusting what any blogs etc say now! Wow, the actors are right when they say things get manipulated >./body>

I'm with Ghost and ClaireBear on this one I too was at the convention and Bronson's nose was NOT broken. He wasn't taken to hospital. He was taken back to his room. As the others have said it was a crew member who had their nose broken and ended up going to hospital after trying to calm down the situation with another party at the hotel.

Wow.. Thanks everyone for clearing that up... I like Bronson and hated that he might've gotten hurt. Thanks again!

It is freedom of the press to present the facts, not to make up the facts as they go along. THE PRESS SUCKS.

I can't tell you how wrong this story is. I was there so I know what really happened. If anyone got hurt it was one of the crew.
I knew the press twist stories but I didn't realise how much, until now.
