Michael Welch, the actor who portrays the role of Mike Newton in "Twilight," has expressed his concern over the life of co-star Robert Pattinson when he was told by MTV that the British actor was hit by a taxi recently while escaping a throng of hysterical female fans. "I don't see how this is sustainable - is this gonna keep going for the rest of his life?" Michael said. "I understand it, it's Edward Cullen, I get it. But he's still Rob Pattinson first - he's still his own guy. Is it time to start getting concerned here?"

Michael continued saying, "He's an actor who likes to prepare out in public - he likes to read a script at a coffee shop where there's people walking by and there's noise; he prepares that way. And he can't really do that anymore." He then added, "It's tough, man ... I don't know where his life is really headed."

And though he admitted that he would not trade place with Robert, Michael still wished him the best. "I'm glad he's OK. And as long as people don't start ripping at him and breaking him in two, I think we'll be OK ... I wish him the best, and hope he's going to be all right," Michael stated.

Robert Pattinson was hit by a cab while he was escaping a throng of hysterical female fans on the set of "Remember Me" in Manhattan, New York City on Thursday, June 18. It was reported that the heartthrob was making his way out of the Strand Bookstore on Broadway and 12th Street, where he's been filming a scene for the film, when a group of fans began to hound him. 5 security guards tried to rush him to his trailer, but failed. Soon thereafter, a representative for Summit Entertainment, the studio producing the drama romance film, confirmed the actor was okay.

OMG!! I feel so sorry for him. I would hate to be chased around & the taxi thing is sort of over the edge....he might need a personal bodygaurd if this continues. He is a great actor & girls I know this is hard, but calm down or you'll kill the poor guy!

I agree with the first poster....only it's not the paps so much as the the crazy freaks of female fans....this young man has alot of potential...he's multi-talented, young and good looking....let's hope hs is not pushed over the edge or driven into seclusion

Like with Princess Di, the paps won't be happy until they either kill this poor kid, or drive him to it. They are sick, sick people who prey upon the worst in the public mind (is that an oxymoron?) to try to get a little glamour to rub off on them, but all that sticks is mud. Leave this poor man alone to do his work, or we will lose him altogether.

Roberts life will be very different from now on. He will be followed by Paps where ever he goes and I have no doubt that his fan base will grow as he gets new and better roles. That's show business for ya. I worry about how Rob will do with this, but he a very well adjusted and down-to-earth guy. I think he will do just fine once he gets used to all that is happening. Good luck Rob. You are doing a wonderful job and keep up the good work.
