Robert Pattinson Giving Away Teen Choice Award Ensures His Legacy Beyond 'Twilight'

Awww! 14

Robert Pattinson Kristen StewartWhen Glee star Lea Michele climbed up onstage at the Teen Choice Awards and tried to get the crowd to admit that vampires are much cooler than werewolves, it's no surprise she got a lot of support. Not after Robert Pattinson showed up to collect his award, the 41st the Twilight Saga has collected at the annual awards show, and did something he wasn't even sure he was allowed to do!

Pattinson was onstage with girlfriend and co-star Kristen Stewart plus co-star Taylor Lautner to accept their Ultimate Choice Award for Breaking Dawn: Part One when he decided to hand the surfboard off to the fans in the front row. It was gutsy. But even with the end nearing for the series, it's proof RPattz won't have to worry about whether people will continue showing up at his movies.

"Can I give this to the audience? Because I really think … Not that I don’t appreciate it, but thank you guys so much, it has been an amazing five years!" he shouted to the crowd, as Stewart quickly followed suit in handing over her award to another group of lucky fans.

It's standard for stars to thank the fans, but this was something bigger. Robert Pattinson doesn't just appreciate the people who got him where he is, he's willing to physically show them how much he appreciates them.

It's appropriate that at the Teen Choice Awards, of all places, Pattinson chose to make a physical gesture to the fans. The Twilight books and movies have a huge adult following, but they are still directed at teens. And the teens who have grown up with the series are now getting jobs, getting more power over their discretionary income, becoming more important for the movie industry -- and stars like Pattinson, Stewart, and Lautner -- to woo.

It's just as Lautner said in his own thank you before RPattz upstaged him with his grand gesture: "It's amazing you guys are still around and just as strong and just as loyal."

Forget Team Edward or Team Jacob. It's Team Twilight.

What do you think of Robert Pattinson's big gesture to his fans?

ive always loved Robert, I had many posters of him... never liked Kristen at all although I have to say she is a great actress but ive read so many bad things that they have said I think he gave it away because he doesnt care he has received so many he couldnt care less if he gets them or not.....I will continue to watch both of there movies for their acting but the people behind the acting aren't nice people just my opinion

i love it!!! and i love them!!!!!!!! TEAM TWILIGHT!!!!

I don't blame him for giving it away.  It's too big.  The books were not intended for teens, but originally it was a dream that the other had that she wanted to write for herself.

what would you do with a big so called award surf board anyway.  Where would you put it?  Especially if you don't surf.

I thought it was awsome for Robert to do that. Then Kristen to also do it. But did anyone else notice that Taylor kept his? He put it on the stage.
