Not sure how true this is…but that’s not to say I can’t see Robert doing something like this because I completely can! Whether it’s true or not, it’s a really cool story!
The warm-hearted Twilight star had spotted the down-and-out’s tatty acoustic as he put money in a collection tin.
Minutes later R-Patz, 25, who plays cold-blooded Edward Cullen, emerged from a music store with an electric guitar for himself and the red acoustic for the man.
The British actor’s generosity was witnessed in Los Angeles by holidaymakers Luke Jones and girlfriend Kirsty Rowlands, 22.
Builder Luke, 24, of Bridgend, South Wales, said: “We were gobsmacked when he handed the acoustic guitar to the tramp. “Robert quickly went back to his car and drove off.
“The busker was totally shell-shocked. He had no idea who Robert was – I think he thought the guitar was stolen.
“He was looking left and right, half expecting the police to arrest him. We asked him to play but he couldn’t get his thoughts together.”
R-Patz, worth around £32million, plays piano and guitar.
