Manhattan Mob Scene: Robert Pattinson Ambushed By Fans on Movie Set

With a mob scene like this, you'd assume Robert Pattinson was shooting a mafia flick!

While on the set of his upcoming film Remember Me, the 23-year-old heartthrob was ambushed by a throng of crazed fans on Monday, who stalked the actor's whereabouts in New York on Twitter and fan sites.

Screaming every moniker from RPattz to Edward, Twilighters couldn't contain their excitement once they spotted Pattinson in his signature Ray-Ban Wayfarers during a break from filming. And despite being surrounded by multiple bodyguards, Pattinson was sidelined by a fan who managed to steal a hug, wrapping her arms around his neck as he graciously smiled for onlookers.

"It's pretty nuts. It doesn't seem very real at all," the British star said of the frenzy last year when Twlight first became a hit. "I just go to these different cities and people start screaming."
