Posted Sunday June 7, 2009 11:46 PM GMT

Keeping low-key as of late, Robert Pattinson was spotted out and about with pal Tom Sturridge in New York City on Sunday afternoon (June 7).

The Edward Cullen actor looked to be doing his best to avoid trailing paparazzi, enjoying the fresh air as he and his pal wandered about the Big Apple.

Shooting to stardom with his hit movie "Twilight," Rob's co-star Mike Welch recently spoke of his amazement at Pattinson's popularity.

“If he’s in a room and he looks down and he looks back up, [in that instant] everyone in the room will be staring at him,” Welch said. “It’s kind of ridiculous. [That level of fame] is literally Rob Pattinson and Barack Obama.”
