Fans of actor Jackson Rathbone certainly have a lot to be excited about these days. He is currently featured in not just one, but two, hollywood blockbuster films with “Eclipse,” and M.Night Shyamalan’s, “The Last Airbender.” His band, 100 Monkeys is currently gigging on the west coast, and have a live music album due relatively soon.
But here’s another thing you will be pleased to know: being a big time movie star certainly hasn’t gone to his head. He’s still quite a thoughtful lad. At least that is what was evident to me when I met Rathbone last month in L.A.
Having been probably the only person on the planet that hadn’t seen any of the “Twilight” movies back in June (Easy, guys! I have since taken the plunge), I didn’t know quite what to expect. But immediately, we were just two good old boys (I’m from Louisiana, and he’s lived in Texas) shooting the s–t.
At the end of our shoot, I shared that we had been meeting a lot of the “Twilight”-loving moms in our coverage of “Twilight,” many of which were HUGE fans of Jasper Hale and Jackson himself. Upon his insistence we fired the camera back on, and he had a message for all of you Twi-Mom’s out there. So Press play above and enjoy!
