Report: 'Twilight' Star's Nose Broken During Fan Expo
Where was Jared’s wolfpack when he needed them?
Bronson Pelletier (who plays werewolf Jared in “The Twilight Saga” franchise films) was allegedly assaulted in the men’s room of a Birmingham, England, hotel during the “Eternal Twilight 4” convention, according to WENN.
The 23-year-old Canadian actor’s nose was reportedly broken after he was allegedly attacked by a group of four men in the restroom of the Hilton Metropole Hotel, where he was the main attraction for the “Twilight” fan expo.
The four alleged attackers – who were at the hotel for a wedding reception – allegedly hit Bronson over the head, headbutted the actor, and held him “in a headlock” before he was able to fight his way to freedom. The men were reportedly chased by police officers, with one man being subdued via Taser gun.
A spokesman for the West Midlands Police reportedly confirmed that four men were arrested on suspicion of assault, according to the site.
A source told the UK’s Daily Telegraph, according to WENN, “Bronson was really angry and upset. These guys were very nasty. They were so drunk, they probably didn’t even realize they were picking on a Hollywood actor.”
Reps for Summit Entertainment were not immediately available for comment regarding the alleged assault when contacted by Access Hollywood. Access was not able to reach reps for Bronson.
