Robert Pattinson was clipped by a cab Thursday in Manhattan, but he was unharmed.

The 23-year-old actor, who is currently shooting the drama "Remember Me," was leaving a bookstore when a crowd of teenage girls began gathering around him.

As rain poured down, a team of five security guards tried to rush the star back to his trailer, but the girls "were hysterical," forcing Rob to dash across the busy street, RadarOnline reports.

A cab then slightly grazed Pattinson as the driver slammed on the brakes.

According to Radar, Pattinson, who walked away from the accident uninjured, looked stunned and a bodyguard yelled: "You see what you did; you almost killed him!"

But a spokeswoman for the Summit film production company tells "Rob Pattinson is fine. The reports are exaggerated, and it was not caused by fans."
