Robert Pattinson Saved By Obsessed Fans

While Robert Pattinson may be a little shy about getting swarmed with screaming teenage fans every second he steps out of his home, he does realize that having a mob of loyal followers can be helpful at times.

In a recent interview with French magazine Telepoche (via ONTD) the 24-year-old Eclipse stud tells about how his heroic fans protected filming on Water for Elephants from bothersome paparazzi:

I was filming “Water for Elephants” in which my partner is Reese Witherspoon. We had a scene with elephants but there were so many paparazzi around that it was scaring the ani­mals and it was impossible to film. Out of the blue, fans that were waiting for autographs had enough and circled around the paparazzi. Teens made big guys run away. It was unreal! I was pleased.

Hear that Twihards? You’re stalking of RPattz can come in handy at times.
