Commonly known for his hair, blood-sucking beauty, and hardcore abs, Twilight movie star Robert Pattinson can now be known as a rockstar, who does it all for a good cause.
In a recent interview, Pattinson sat down with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson to discuss the “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1” sex scene that has Hollywood and all his fans buzzing. Although Pattison jokingly blames co-star Kristen Stewart’s aggressiveness during the scene, to call for a re-edit (otherwise forcing the movie to be produced as an R rated film), he does admit to having a good time recording the long-awaited wedding scene and said it was a day he’ll remember for a long time.
With the Twilight Saga coming to a bitter sweet end (part 2 is the final installment of the saga), Pattinson touched upon his other interests and ventures – one being his involvement in “Band From TV,” a celebrity rock band that consists of actors, musicians, and athletes who started as a group that shared a love for music, but transformed to a band that fills venues, playing rock and roll for charitable causes.
“Actors always want to be rockstars and rockstars, actors,” Pattinson said of performing with the group.
Band From TV is dedicated to making a difference in advancing and supporting the charities its members feel passionately about — raising money through music to help those in need – finding a cure, helping children around the world, protecting the environment, providing educational materials or musical instruments, aiding in natural disasters, or standing up against domestic violence.
Charities include the Epilepsy Foundation, The Art of Elysium and Childrens Hospital LA, The Conservation Fund, The Indiana University-Kenya Partnership, Taia Peace Foundation, Lupus LA, Save the Children, and the Guitar Center Music Foundation.
Current band members include Greg Grunberg (drums), a veteran of shows such as “Alias” and “Felicity” as well as the NBC hit “Heroes”; James Denton (guitar), currently starring in the ABC hit “Desperate Housewives”; Bob Guiney (vocals), who appeared on “The Bachelor” and on TLC’s “Date My House”; Jesse Spencer (violin) currently starring in the FOX hit “House”; Adrian Pasdar, from “Heroes” and “Desperate Housewives”; Scott Grimes from “American Dad” and “ER,” and rounding out the band are accomplished musicians Chris Kelley (Music Director), Barry Sarna (Eagles), David Leach (Ben Harper), Chris Mostert (Eagles) and child-star turned bass player Brad Savage.
