Congratulations on the huge success of Twilight and the soon to be released New Moon, which we expect will do as well if not better than the first film of the series. Media interest in the film and the cast is high, sadly in some cases unhealthily so.
We've seen, with a great deal of dismay, the paparazzi and fan gauntlet that the two leads of your films, Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, are obliged to run every time they choose to go somewhere and when they come back to their hotel. While we understand this is the price of fame, we'd like to point out that the safety of your stars might be better ensured if:
They have personal driver(s) and car(s) at their disposition when they choose to go out. It's surprising that the lives and safety of any of the cast is being entrusted to unknown taxi drivers over whose car maintenance your company has no control. We suspect that they might appreciate the privacy that blacked out windows would afford as well. Not to mention the decoy possibilities...
