T.i.ight Saga actor Robert Pattinson is planning to hire a body double. He wants to increase his security after being assaulted with mails from female admirers. One of his fans even started following him and girlfriend Kristen Stewart everywhere.
“He’s become the focus of a group of over-zealous female fans,” a source said. “Robert is constantly inundated with fan mail but one group of four girls have been targeting him repeatedly, telling him they want to do ruse, saucy things to him. One girl from Japan has started turning up wherever he is. Robert thinks there’s only one thing for it and that is to increase his security and use a body double. It may seem a bit extreme but at least he can now be in two countries at once and spend some quality time with Kristen.”
It was previously said that Pattinson needed 25 security guards to protect him while he was shooting his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga movie franchise. “They had to hire another ten security guards and they had to form a ring around you and it had to be every single day,” Rob said. “And if you’re doing a movie for $1 million or $2 million, security is expensive. So you hire 25 security guards for one cast member.
The 24-year-old actor also admitted that the multitude of his fans and the pressure of fame made him “really paranoid”. “I was getting really paranoid. But then I realized that if tomorrow I say, ‘OK, I’ve had enough we’re stopping everything,’ it won’t change anything,” he said.
