British-born actor Robert Pattinson can’t get back to London soon enough because shooting for his new film Remember Me in New York has left him terrified of the city’s women.
“Robert is dying to get back home. He’s so over everything. He’s overwhelmed by all the girls — they terrify him,” The New York Daily News quoted an insider as saying.
The 23-year-old star,who shot to fame as teenage vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight film franchise, isn’t enjoying the female attention that accompanies his heartthrob status.
“Robert doesn’t understand why everyone is going so crazy over him,” the insider said.
“He’s embarrassed by the way girls throw themselves at him. The girls here are stalking him. He stayed in two different hotels over the course of four days just to try to escape the fans who were following him. He’s afraid that if he gives a hand, they’ll take the whole arm. He’s being advised by security not to encourage the crowd, so he doesn’t even look up anymore.”
Robert is chased around the streets of the city on a regular basis ,and even had a close encounter with one of the Big Apple’s famous yellow taxicabs after being chased into the street by a mob of fans last month.
“He says girls grab his neck and clothing all of the time, and he’s not used to that. Fans don’t do that to him in London. Everyone there is a little cooler about the fame thing, which is what he’s used to,” the insider added.
