Robert Pattinson's guitar gift for busker

Robert Pattinson showed off his generous side recently by handing a homeless street performer a guitar as a gift.

The Twilight star donated a few dollars to the musician's collection tin in Los Angeles, but he later returned with a new instrument for the busker.

Pattinson's kind gesture was witnessed by holidaymaker Luke Jones, who tells Britain's The Sun, "We were gobsmacked (stunned) when he handed the acoustic guitar to the tramp.

"Robert quickly went back to his car and drove off. The busker was totally shell-shocked. He had no idea who Robert was - I think he thought the guitar was stolen. He was looking left and right, half expecting the police to arrest him. We asked him to play but he couldn't get his thoughts together."
