 There wasn’t too much work done on the first day of filming for Robert Pattinson’s new movie “Remember Me” in downtown Manhattan today, as cast and crew were doing their best to ward off the paparazzi and fans who turned up to see the dashing “Twilight" hunk.

The handsome English actor did his best to act as if nothing out of the ordinary was happening, but the sheer number of his adoring followers that turned up to watch his every move must have come a great surprise.

If he needs to get any tips on how to ward off the female adoration he is receiving right now, he could do worse that ask his Irish co-star Pierce Brosnan for a few tips.

Brosnan, who is the 80’s played TV heartthrob Remington Steele and in the 90’s and early 00’s played 007 James Bond, knows what it is like to be the object of fan adulation.

Once the two get past that chat, they will have to get down to some serious work on this movie, which is being directed by Allen Coulter.

Pattinson, 23, will play a young man whose brother has just committed suicide, a tragedy which causes the breakdown of his parents’ marriage. Brosnan will play Pattinson’s father and Swedish actress Lena Olin will play his mother.
