Remember last week when Rob was visiting a children’s hospital in L.A? (Read the story here) Well we now have a few more pics and a video.
He’s even on the committee for the International Medical Corps 2013 Annual Awards Celebration, along with Sasha Alexander, Jamie Bell, Cary Elwes, Ben Foster, Chelsea Handler, Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Kate Mara, Sienna Miller, Robert Pattinson, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Sturridge, Mario Testino, Anna Wintour and Robin Wright.
The event will be in L.A on November 8th.
The down-to-earth actor quickly settled the room and jumped into arts and crafts, decorating picture frames alongside patients. Pattinson laughed at his own creation—a pink frame with hearts sketched in—and tried unsuccessfully to convince the room of his “terrible” artistic skills.
The star graciously posed for endless photographs and signed every patient’s picture frame before heading off to visit two cystic fibrosis patients and huge Twilight fans who were unable to leave their rooms.
“We couldn’t help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck she that couldn’t speak. You could tell it meant the world to her—she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear as we were leaving,” said Lyndsay Hutchison, senior public information officer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends.”
“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. He was incredibly gracious and kind. 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,” shared Child Life specialist, Ana Vega.
