Never say that Robert Pattinson won't take one for the team. The handsome young star of Twilight, may be busy fending off Hollywood starlets and trying to keep his head on straight with the bright lights of fame and that's not easy when you take a shot to the head. Veteran gossip Mike walker of the enquirer offers this for Rob.
"Trick by a rival vampire, or ...? A bad wind suddenly blew no good at sexy "Twilight" vampire Robert Pattinson - ripping loose a metal advertising sign that rocketed across an open field and slammed into Mr. Undead’s head, knocking him flat as a cameras were about to roll! (Hey, did I just hear a werewolf howl?)"
Walker adds, "During filming of his upcoming flick, “The Twilight Saga: New Moon” in Vancouver, Pattinson had just started shooting a scene when a rogue gust of violent wind tore a heavy metal sign from a post. It shot across the location so fast no one even managed to shout a warning at Pattinson, who was just opening his mouth to emote when...WHAM!...the unguided missile smashed into the back of his head."
Walker writes that Rob dropped and "then lay deadly still as cast and crew ran to help, sending out a radio call for an ambulance. Finally, Pattinson - looking like he’d had the blood sucked from him - began moving feebly, disoriented, but able to speak. The crew put ice packs on a knot sized lump, and by the time medics arrived, the star was coherent and insisting he was fine. Taking no chances, the director canceled filming. Pattinson was ordered back to his hotel, but returned the next day - sporting a lump."
