As they say, fame is a double edged sword. For Robert Pattinson, it’s reached mass hysteria, in fact the studio has hired bodyguards to protect the stars of “New Moon” from crazy fans. But when the “Twilight” cast recently went overseas for work on the sequel “New Moon,” they saw that the insanity has become even wilder.
“Italy was intense,” Ashley Greene marveled. “We literally all had two bodyguards and drivers, and we couldn’t walk and had to be driven around the set. It was because there were thousands of girls that came in from everywhere in the world to see [Pattinson]. … They would sleep over and stay the night outside our hotel gate. It was nuts.”
“Every second of Rob’s life is watched now,” Kellan Lutz added, saying that Rob has had to adjust some habits to handle the increased scrutiny. “I’m sure he’s careful for everything he’s doing.”
“I’ve talked to Rob about it, and he’s just paranoid all the time now,” Peter Facinelli revealed, admitting that the newfound fame does sometimes become difficult for his onscreen son. “Like, even to go down to the Starbucks, he’s ducking behind cars and does a roll-flip to the coffee shop. Then he gets up, and there’s nobody there — but then the one time that he doesn’t do that, that’s when there’s like 10,000 paparazzi jumping out of the bushes.”
The posters for New Moon look amazing. I think the second installment of the film is going to be even better then the first. Can’t wait.
