It all began last weekend when photos emerged of Robert Pattinson battling a mob of paparazzi as he tried to escape from the Hollywood Hard Rock Cafe.

While making a dash for the car, his face showed signs of distress as he tried to shield himself from the cameras. There was even one shot of him with his back turned, leaning up against a wall and burying his head, as if he was waiting for the paparazzi to give up. But despite all his efforts, they didn't back off, and they followed him through the underground parking garage where he thought he'd be safe.

These photos reveal a different side to Pattinson, something fans are expressing they aren't interested in seeing. A number of fansites have gotten together to launch a worldwide campaign against the paparazzi and their intrusion into Pattinson's private life.
