London: `Twilight` star Robert Pattinson is so paranoid about his security that he wants to hire a body double now.

The actor has been flooded with mails from female fans and has been thinking of getting a body double ever since one of his fans started following him and his girlfriend Kristen Stewart everywhere, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"He`s become the focus of a group of over-zealous female fans. Robert is constantly inundated with fan mail but one group of four girls have been targeting him repeatedly, telling him they want to do ruse, saucy things to him. One girl from Japan has started turning up wherever he is.

"Robert thinks there`s only one thing for it and that is to increase his security and use a body double. It may seem a bit extreme but at least he can now be in two countries at once and spend some quality time with Kristen," said a source.

It was earlier revealed that the actor required 25 security guards to protect him while he was shooting as vampire Edward Cullen in the `Twilight Saga` movie franchise.
