LOS ANGELES — After [movieperson id=”365131″]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson] was grazed by a taxi cab while filming his romantic drama “Remember Me” on Thursday, his [movie id=”369195″]”Twilight”[/movie] co-star [movieperson id=”1014864″]Ashley Greene[/movieperson] sent out a message of support to her fellow actor — and a bit of advice.
“Don’t run in the streets, Rob!” Greene told MTV News while on the red carpet at the Los Angeles Lakers’ NBA championship celebration, which took place at Club Nokia.
Pattinson was reportedly clipped by the cab as he fled frenzied fans. The incident took place in front of the Strand Book Store on Broadway and 12th Street in Manhattan, where “Remember Me” was filming. Onlookers were said to react with shock as a bewildered Pattinson stood in the street and the driver slammed the brakes. According to a report by Radar Online, one of the actor’s bodyguards yelled at the fans, “You see what you did, you almost killed him!”
On the red carpet in L.A., Greene told us she’d just heard news of the accident “a second ago.” “I’m glad you’re OK,” she said to RPattz. “I’m so glad he’s OK.”
The taxi incident caps a dramatic few days on the set of “Remember Me.” Earlier in the week, Pattinson had been mobbed by aggressive “Twilight” devotees, who tried to hug the 23-year-old as his security team attempted to protect him.
The movie will be filming in Manhattan for the next four weeks. Co-starring “Lost” actress Emilie de Ravin, the film tells the story of a young couple whose budding relationship is complicated by a succession of family tragedies.
