Twilight star Bronson Pelletier is recovering after he was attacked by a group of drunken men at a fan convention in Birmingham, England.

The actor, who plays werewolf Jared in the franchise, was left with a broken nose after he was confronted in the restroom of the Hilton Metropole Hotel while attending the Eternal Twilight 4 event.

Chaos broke out as the 24 year old was hit over the skull, headbutted and held in a headlock before he managed to free himself.

Four alleged attackers, who were guests at a wedding reception in the hotel, were then chased by police officers and one was restrained after cops used a Taser gun.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police confirms four men were arrested on suspicion of assault. Two were released and two were granted bail pending further questioning, according to Britain's Daily Telegraph.

A source tells the publication, "Bronson was really angry and upset... These guys were very nasty. They were so drunk they probably didn't even realize they were picking on a Hollywood actor.

"The convention was full of teenage girls and geeks desperate to see their Twilight heroes so no one expected this sort of trouble."
