Jackson Rathbone gives TV host tooth that cost him a spot on his show

Twilight star Jackson Rathbone was so disappointed to miss a cast appearance on late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! a year ago (10), he has given the host the tooth that forced him to sit it out.

The actor was in too much pain to sit through TV interviews when his castmates were promoting the last Twilight film, Eclipse, and he had to give up a spot on one of his favourite shows.


Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel's variety show on Wednesday night (16Nov11), he insisted on giving the comedian the tooth that caused him to miss the programme.


Handing over the molar in a small plastic bag, Jackson Rathbone said, "I wanted to prove to you that this (happened)."


Jimmy Kimmel quipped, "I will cherish this. Can I sell this on eBay?"
