Twilight fans have reportedly been banned from kissing a cardboard cutout of Robert Pattinson for fear that they may spread swine flu.
An life-size image of Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in the saga, has been attracting lustful attention from film followers at the Reel cinema in Crewe.
The Sunday Telegraph reports that employees have now placed a notice on the cutout which reads: "Please help reduce the spread of germs by refraining from giving Edward, or any other character for that matter, a kiss or a hug."
Reel Cinemas managing director Kailash Suri said that New Moon was sold out for the first week, adding: "The girls were coming in and having their pictures taken. They were getting a bit carried away and in the nicest possible way we said, 'Don't kiss him'."
