London: British actor Robert Pattinson needs 11 bodyguards to protect him from overexcited fans, says his ‘Twilight’ co-star Kellan Lutz.
Pattinson, who shot to fame by playing Edward Cullen in the vampire franchise, is always hounded by fans and needs added protection, reports contactmusic.com.
"We`ve all stayed so down to earth, and it`s just funny to see life change for the people around us, especially Rob (Pattinson). It`s like, when a fan lunges at him and you only see one bodyguard around, and then 10 more jump out of the crowd, where they`ve been hiding," said Lutz.
"God, it`s crazy to think about needing a bodyguard, but Rob can`t take any chances. He`s a heartthrob, but he`s also a great guy and we all love him because he hasn`t changed as a person," he added.
