Report: Robert Pattinson Involved in Car Accident

/ July 26, 2010

Robert Pattinson’s charm and mojo are so strong, that even the guy whose car he reportedly smacked into seems to be wooed by his aura.

The Twilight actor reportedly got in a fender-bender on Saturday night, colliding with a parked car as he left a friend’s Malibu, California, home. According to witnesses, the accident occurred at approximately 9 p.m., as R-Pattz ran into a parked Kia.

The car’s owner, Rob Gottschlich, tells OK! Magazine that he isn’t likely to pursue the issue—except for maybe hitting up R-Pattz for free movie tickets the next time he sees him: 

“If I had a nice car like a Lexus or something, maybe [I would be concerned], but I’ve got an old Kia. I am going to ask Rob next time I see him for free tickets to the next Twilight film.”

The Malibu Sheriff’s Office reports that no complaints have been filed regarding the alleged accident. The actor’s rep, meanwhile, casts doubt on the accident story, noting that Pattinson isn’t aware of having struck another vehicle. The rep suggests, however, that if an accident did occur, it might be because his client was distracted by the paparazzi snapping shots of him:

“Robert was pulling out of a parking space after a quiet day in Malibu yesterday and was relentlessly pursued by paparazzi. He has no knowledge of having bumped or damaged another car in the process.”

Pattinson did, in fact, exchange heated words with the shutterbugs over the course of the day Saturday, pleading with them to leave him alone and asking the police to intervene. Check out the video exchange below:
