WHAT'S HOT?

Robert Pattinson Afraid of 'Twilight' Fans

"I just don't want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS and I don't want to get shot or stabbed," Robert Pattinson says of his fear when dealing with the many fans of "Twilight."

Despite the worldwide fame he earns for playing the role of Edward Cullen in "Twilight," Robert Pattinson admits fans of the vampire drama flick have made him paranoid. He fears his fans might confuse reality and fiction that they then could do something that may endanger his life.

"People ambush me in public and ask me to bite them and want to touch my hair," so he says. "I just don't want someone to have a needle and give me AIDS and I don't want to get shot or stabbed. This is my life."

Recalling his bad experience with fans, Robert says his fears reached new heights at the Los Angeles premiere of "Twilight" last month due to the noise that the film's screaming fans made. "I thought, 'Oh my God. Are they going to blow the place up?'" he states.

In another Robert Pattinson news, the movie heartthrob has told British magazine Closer that before becoming an actor he used to be a model from the age of 12. Unfortunately, he lost the job when he was 16 years old because he started to look too manly. "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool," so he tells the publication. "Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career."

Hey i'm quite a bit of a Rob fan too, infact so much that my mum has to shut me up when talking about the twilight movie. he is still human and i think girls have gone to the extreme of turning him into a GOD... why harm the guy let him at least be able to walk down the street and feel NORMAL GEEEEEE. One more thing he is very hot. if all gals had a guy like him then they wouldn't have to stalk the one Rob thats around...sorry ,but thats life unfortunately

He is right, he should be afraid. I used to be a fan of Twilight, until everybody went crazy and began confusing fantasy with reality.

And WTF happened proper grammar? These comments just prove most twilight fans are half-retarded, socially inept, fatty pedos.

people, movies and reality are not the same. In movies or tv you are acting and in reality you arn't acting your being yourself not some character from a movie or tv show your being yourself.

Robert, you remember when you were Cedric? B4 "Twilight"...your HP fans loved you then and still love you now. I am both your Cedric & Edward fan (does that make sense?)...if you are concerned about your health and well-being...get your shots and hire a bodyguard!

Poor guy. I really think he needs a break. He's going to go completely off the deep end Howard Hughes style if he keeps it up...

I am starting to feel really bad for this guy, whom I admire for his candid bluntness and general nice disposition when seen in public, or in interviews. Must get awfully tiresome to repeatedly answer the same ridiculous questions over and over!! I hope he gets some much deserved rest over the Holidays and that he can finally find some peace from all the craziness that he is now forced to live with!

Ummm you girls. We should respect Robert. As much as we love him. We need to give him privacy.
