'Twilight' hunk Robert Pattinson has admitted he suffers from hearing problems and is worried he'll completely lose his hearing because of screaming fans
Robert Pattinson is terrified he'll lose his hearing because of screaming fans.
The 'Twilight' actor - who is currently in the UK shooting his new movie 'Bel Ami' with Uma Thurman - claims the devoted female supporters who follow him everywhere could make him deaf because of the volume at which they screech.
The 23-year-old heartthrob said: "I'm almost completely deaf anyway. So I'm worried. I'm very worried."
Robert's ears aren't the only part of his body which have been damaged by fans.
The actor was clipped on the legs by a taxi in New York last year while he was trying to run away from a horde of teenage girls who had come to see him film his latest release 'Remember Me'.
Speaking of the incident, he said: "It was kind of chaotic."
A source said at the time: "It's non-stop busy all day with people trying to get a glimpse of him, and the crowd goes nuts when they do see him."
Robert previously revealed he had to rely on the support of his castmates and the crew on 'Remember Me' to stop him being mobbed by his fans everyday.
He told BANG Showbiz: "Everyone was so supportive on set. I got everyone helping me out everyday. Fans were gathering on the street and the crew would have to get really close together and form a circle around me, so we were really close."
