According to a release issued by the hospital on Friday, Pattinson, 27, posed for photographs and signed picture frames for every patient. The Twilight star also spent time with 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,” senior public information officer Lyndsay Hutchison said.

“You could tell it meant the world to her — she was tearing up and smiling ear to ear as we were leaving.”
