EXCLUSIVE: Robert Pattinson Hit By Cab!

Rob Pattinson is quickly learning the hazards of filming a movie in New York City - he was hit by a taxi cab on Thursday while running away from hysterical fans! witnessed the Twilight star get clipped by a cab around noon in front of the Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street.

He was not hurt.

The 23-year-old London-born actor had been inside most of the morning filming scenes for his new movie Remember Me.

A team of five security guards were trying to fend off a crowd of teenaged girls when Rob was leaving the bookstore.

It was pouring rain as they tried to hustle him quickly across the busy street to the safety of his trailer.

Some of the teen girls were hysterical and Rob rushed across the road. As he did so, a taxi grazed him. The cabbie slammed on his brakes as soon as he realized what had happened.

It appeared as if the cab hit Rob in the hip. He stood there for a moment looking stunned. The bodyguard next to him checked if he was okay and then screamed at the fans: "You see what you did, you almost killed him!"

Pattinson will be shooting around Manhattan for the next four weeks.

His co-star in the film is gorgeous Lost TV actress Emilie de Ravin, who he has been seen hanging out with in the evenings.


Sites are reporting that Rob is ok. Just a scary moment

Seriously people...give him some breathing room! Do you enjoy him being here? Do you want him to stay in America so we can enjoy him? Give him some space! Do you honestly think he appreciates being stalked and hounded by these so called "fans". You are not a fan by chasing him into harms way! Don't get me wrong, I adore the guy but goodness admire him from afar! Give him some respect! He deserves that. He is a fantastic actor and he is easy on the eyes but he needs space! All this attention he is getting scares even me. I don't want to risk him not making movies here, or not want to be here. Give it a break! I want to admire his movies for many years to come. Don't chase him away!
