Robert Pattinson may have dumped Kristen Stewart for Emile de Ravin, but this controversy hasn't made the British actor any less popular.
New reports from the set of Remember Me place into context just what the star deals with everyday in New York City, a place described by a source as "crazytown," due to Pattinson's presence.
“There are all these girls with a lot of hormones and a lot of time on their hands," an insider told OK! magazine, adding that many leave phone numbers on Robert's trailer, such as one that read: “I think we’re meant to be together. Call me.”
Pattinson tries to deal with these enthusiastic fans as well as he can.
“Rob’s a nice guy — he doesn’t want to disappoint people,” said a security detailer on the set of Remember Me. “He stops to say hello when he can, but he just can’t do it a lot. People bring him gifts, but we can’t take them; we don’t know where they’ve come from.”
Ah. So that's why Pattinson never replied to our muffin basket!
In an attempt to shield their leading man from the cameras, crew members have actually constructed a seven-foot high box, where the actor often retreats between takes. But once the day's filming is complete, there's nowhere to hide.
“I worked on Gossip Girl with guys like Penn Badgely,” said the on-set source. “We’d go out after work and play beer pong. Nobody would bother them. There’s no way Rob can do that. He’d be mobbed.”
