Robert Pattinson recently talked about the fan and paparazzi madness surrounding the filming for the third ‘Twilight’ installment – ‘Eclipse’. The project is currently filming in Vancouver.
“The most embarrassing is when friends ask you to meet up with them and you have to tell them, ‘Sorry I can’t go to that place’ because you’re fully aware photographers will be waiting for you there.” Pattinson explained.
‘Twilight’ co-star Kellan Lutz also recently talked about the madness saying, “We all love Vancouver. It’s just that there’s just so many paparazzi everywhere.”
“We’ve been moving around to new places like every two weeks. Especially for Rob – we feel bad for him. Like, we go out to cast dinners and, whenever Rob’s shooting, that’s when we can have free time because usually that’s when everyone is trying to shoot Rob or Kristen.” Lutz continued, “So then we can actually be free to walk around the city and shop and go out to eat. You know, when we want to do cast dinners, it’s tough because you can’t just chill.”
Pattinson admitted he feels horrible when things like that happen, “I have to look over my shoulder all the time, be super vigilant because at any moment, someone could be filming or recording what I’m saying. It makes me feel like working non-stop: at least, on sets, the level of security gives me a bit of privacy. It’s a relief.”
Even with the benefits of security – Pattinson hasn’t found a place to get away from fans and photographers just yet, “I haven’t found one place in the world yet where I could disappear. Even the most remote places I can imagine someone will ask me for a picture with them or an autograph. Honestly, I didn’t think that I would be recognized so easily.”
