Robert Pattinson is a celebrity who knows how to give back! Last Friday the Twilight star was photographed taking time to visit patients at the Los Angeles Children's Hospital, according to E! Online.
"Robert was so nervous about meeting the kids — he didn't want to let them down — which is a testament to how humble he is," Child Life specialist Ana Vega said in the E! Online report.
"He was incredibly gracious and kind," Vega continued. "He will probably never fully understand what a huge lift he gave to these kids today, and how it will positively impact them over the long term."
It appears, however, that Pattinson, 27, got along just fine with the children, as the actor was seen joking around with them and getting playfully teased by one particular patient.
Lyndsay Hutchison, the senior public information officer for the hospital, said that Pattinson even brought when of the girls to tears when he arrived.
"We couldn't help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck she that couldn't speak," said Lyndsay Hutchison, senior public information officer for CHLA. "You could tell it meant the world to her — she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear as we were leaving."
In a public video for the hospital, Pattinson is seen thanking the hospital for allowing him to spend time with the children. "Thanks for having me," Rob said. "It's been a great day and I hope I see you all again soon. Thanks a lot."
Pattinson has also been filming a David Cronenberg movie, Map to the Stars, which will feature Julianne Moore and John Cusack, and will chronicle the seedy happenings of western America and Hollywood.
