Robert Pattinson Injured on ‘New Moon’ Set Actor sent home to rest for the day
British actor Robert Pattinson was injured on the set of “New Moon,” the sequel to the highly successful vampire film “Twilight.” The incident took place just a couple of hours ago, when a piece of metal got loose and hit Pattinson in the back of the head, forcing producers to send him home to recover, X17 Online informs.
While further details of the accident have not yet been made public, the same media outlet / paparazzi agency informs that it did not take place because of anyone’s fault. Also, Pattinson was not severely injured, as medics gave him a check-up on the spot and decided that a few hours’ rest should be enough to see him back on his feet and working again, it is further being said.
“There were a few tense moments on the set of the ‘Twilight’ sequel ‘New Moon’ when Pattinson was hit in the head with a piece of flying metal. According to The National Enquirer, a strong gust of wind tore loose a metal sign and slammed it right into the back of Rob’s head, knocking him to the ground. A few moments later, RPattz was able to get up by himself, but was a little dazed. Medics checked him out - he apparently has a pretty good goose egg on the back of his head - and sent him back to his hotel to rest. Fortunately, after a night of ice and probably a couple of Tylenol, the hunky Brit was back on the set the next day!” the aforementioned e-zine says.
Also today, new reports on Pattinson emerged in the media, this time neither too flattering nor pleasant for his fans. According to people working with Robert on the set of “New Moon,” which is currently shooting in Vancouver, the Brit does not really have a liking for water and washing products, which makes it pretty hard to be in his presence and not be sick by how he smells.
Using terms such as “he positively reeks,” “he stinks” and “it’s awful,” sources from the set have been telling the media that, as good looking as he is, as repulsive he can get for not being much of a shower guy, if there ever was such a thing. Granted, as we noted before, if this rumor was accurate, Pattinson would not be the only hunk to ever be labeled a “stinker,” since Brad Pitt and Keanu Reeves before him also were awarded this not-that-pleasant distinction.
