‘Eclipse’ Star Alex Meraz Gets Charitable for the Kids (PHOTOS)

Alex Meraz might play fearsome Wolf Pack member Paul in the Twilight saga, but clearly in real life he’s just a big softie with a fondness for kids.

Meraz was joined by his co-stars Tinsel Korey and Julia Jones in Los Angeles on Thursday at a volunteer event for Los Angeles Playground Build, in support of United Health Care’s “Do Good Live Well” and the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s iParticipate campaigns. Looks like Alex was put on flowerpot-painting duty—not that he seems to mind much.
