Seriously, is that thing for a movie role? Come on, R-Patz!

A very scruffy Robert Pattinson was among the many celebs on last night’s Hope For Haiti Now telethon, and he delivered a pretty interesting speech about the role technology and social networking are playing in the Haitian relief efforts. Yes, ladies, he’s hot and smart. He spoke via satellite from London, and we have a feeling he took off shortly after so he’ll be able to join girlfriend Kristen Stewart at her Runaways premiere tonight in Park City, Utah.

“Underneath a flattened university, Maxine Fallon waited,” he said, looking directly into the camera. “She was crouched in the fetal position and could barely move. In the darkness and during the hectic sounds of the day, through the pain, hunger and thirst, she prayed that someone would find her. On the sixth day, her prayers were answered. She was found because of a text message from the rubble sent to rescuers outside. Unlike any other event in history, our world is being connected to this tragedy because of technology. Twitter updates, Facebook pages with pictures of the missing and text messages for help. This technology is working right now to connect us.”
