But producers on the set of Remember Me, Pattinson's latest movie, are trying everything possible to keep their star unburdened by fans.
First, they actually constructed a seven-foot high box around the actor. Now, crew members are being advised on how to talk to the media.
“They were told not to talk to the press at all,” an insider told OK! magazine. “And when they talk on their phones about the shoot, they need to make sure no one else is around."
Meanwhile, to ward off overeager Pattinson fans, anyone involved with the shoot is encouraged to lie about what’s going on, as the common reply is to tell onlookers that the equipment is for a commercial or an episode of Law & Order.
A security firm has also been hired.
“It’s ridiculous,” a crewmember told the tabloid. “I worked on a film with Jennifer Aniston and it wasn’t nearly this bad... It’s all the teenagers that literally scream when they see him who make shooting impossible. They’ve had to hire security, it’s actually the same company Aniston used.”
Will the madness over Robert Pattinson ever end? Let's hope not. In this difficult economy, he's helping bodyguards keep their jobs.
