Robert Pattinson: Clooney May Be Calling
How do you get a gazillion young people to help earthquake-devastated Haiti?
Have Robert Pattinson talk to them.
As you may have already heard, George Clooney is heading up a telethon on Jan. 22 to raise disaster relief funds for the Caribbean nation.
Pattinson, I'm told, is on the top of everyone's list to take part in what will likely be an A-list effort…
Organizers, a source reveals, are aiming high and will be asking for Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner to take part.
It's too early to say what—if anything—the world's most famous vampire movie stars will do, but a source close to Stewart tells me, "She'd jump at the chance to do something to help."
That something may have to be pretaped. Stewart is scheduled to be traveling to the Sundance Film Festival at the time of the telethon to promote Welcome to the Rileys and The Runaways.
Clooney first told my old pal Roger Friedman at the Hollywood Reporter that the telethon would take place on MTV. But as of this afternoon, I'm happy to report ABC, NBC, HBO and CNN have agreed to air it, too.
