Robert Pattinson is not exactly known for being overly gregarious with his fans in public. But who knows – that could change if he keeps hanging out with Pierce Brosnan.

The two actors worked together in the upcoming film Remember Me, and in their downtime together, the former James Bond, 56, mentored the young Twilight heartthrob in the art of handling the gawking masses.

"He's totally recognizable, and he makes no effort to tone it down," Pattinson tells Vogue for its March issue. "Some people were glancing over at us in the restaurant, and he just went over and introduced himself. And it does work. It dissipates all the attention."

What, that's not Pattinson's typical approach? "Me? I just crawl under the table," he says.



Pattinson, 23, still seems baffled by the absurd nature of fame in today's unblinking public eye. "Everybody knows where everybody is," he says. "The Twitter thing is unbelievable."


And now, of course, with his anonymity totally gone, Pattinson has to deal with hordes of fans even while filming.

"It was the most ridiculous experience," he says of shooting Remember Me. "You're trying to stay in character and you're trying to walk down the street, but all those people keep reminding you that you're not this character."
