RPatz visits kids’ hospital

Robert Pattinson “didn’t want to let kids down” during a visit to the Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

The Twilight Saga actor star made a trip to the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Teen Lounge on August 16 and spent time decorating picture frames with the youngsters.

"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 via "He was incredibly gracious and kind."

The 27-year-old star, who was in the city recording scenes for Maps to the Stars, painted with the kids although he admitted his artistic effort - a pink frame decorated with hearts - was “terrible”.

Robert was reportedly very considerate while greeting the patients and took time to pose for pictures and give his signature to the kids.

He even paid special visits to two cystic fibrosis patients who were unable to leave their rooms.

"We couldn't help laughing and smiling when one of the patients was so starstruck that she couldn't speak. You could tell it meant the world to her – she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear," said Lyndsay Hutchinson, the hospital's public information officer. "The other little girl teased him relentlessly and begged him to do an American accent. They were instant friends."

RPatz wasn’t quite so polite on set. He recently admitted that he didn’t even say goodbye when the filming of Twilight finally came to an end.

"The actual last day of filming had been in Canada... so that [last] night it was freezing cold and horrible," he is quoted as saying to Germany's Interview Magazine. "The whole crew just wanted to go. Just like me. I didn't say goodbye to all the guys but just took off."
