He's also been known to show some sincere appreciation for the individual support he's gotten from the Twilight fan-base, and now he's speaking up about why it is that he thinks Twilight fans are "amazing."
In a set video from filming on his second season of his web series Aim High, Rathbone explained, "I've met these fans that have become friends with people across the world, over state boundaries or country boundaries, and they've become friends on chat sites or blogs ... Some people who've felt like they didn't really have much in their lives at some point, like suddenly they're invested in this book series which became this film series. They're invested in these characters, these actors, and then they found these chat sites, these blogs where they found other friends in the same kind of boat," he explained.
"I really find it amazing when a piece of art can bring people together like that. I see it with families. I read a lot of my fan mail because I'm lucky to get it. It's amazing! And I read it and I just see all these letters talking about how these books have brought a mother and a daughter together. That to me is the most beautiful thing in the world."
