Robert Pattison was greeted by thousands of screaming fans in Leicester Square as he stepped out on the red carpet to promote ‘Remember Me’, in which he plays a tormented man who falls in love after suffering a family tragedy. The heartthrob spent over an hour chatting to fans and signing autographs with his co-star and love interest in the movie, Emilie de Ravin, and admitted he still can’t believe how popular he has become since being catapulted to fame by his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the ‘Twilight’ movies.
He told BANG Showbiz: "I’m feeling really, really good, I’m so happy to be here tonight and to meet everyone… I never go to places where crowds congregate, so it’s always a novelty. It’s a completely separate aspect of my life. It’s nice." Robert, 23, also revealed his female admirers followed him everywhere while he was shooting ‘Remember Me’ and he had to rely on the support of the cast to stop him from being mobbed everyday.
He said: "Everyone was so supportive on set. I got everyone helping me out everyday. Fans were gathering on the street and the crew would have to get really close together and form a circle around me, so we were really close. I don’t know, I guess I haven’t worked with that kind of unity before." Photos: Bauer Griffin
