Jackson Rathborne Gives Thanks to Twilight Fans while Appearing on The Wendy Williams Show

Posted by Karen Benardello On November - 21 - 2012 0 Comment

Jackson Rathborne appeared on ‘The Wendy Williams’ show today to discuss the final installment in his hit adventure fantasy drama series, ‘The Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn-Part 2,’ as well as his family. The actor surprised the talk show host by arriving on stage in cowboy boots, which he said he always wears because he’s from Texas.

Rathborne added that he’s happy the fourth and last sequel in ‘The Twilight Saga’ was released right before Thanksgiving. In its first weekend, the movie grossed over $140 million at the box office, prompting the actor to thank the franchise’s fans for continuing to support the series.

The 27-year-old actor, who had his first acting job modeling on a Sears commercial when he was 17, reminisced about his time on the set of the first ‘Twilight’ film. He and co-star Kellan Lutz were the only actors over 21, as Kristen Stewart was 17 and Taylor Lautner was 16. Rathborne and Lutz celebrated co-star Ashley Greene’s 21st birthday while shooting ‘Twilight,’ and were happy she could go out with them to bars.

But Rathborne doesn’t go to bars too often anymore, however, as he has a new son with his girlfriend, who is a stay-at-home mom. The family remains close by traveling together while Rathborne works. The couple named their son Monroe Jackson Rathborne XI, as the name is a tradition in his family, and he didn’t want to upset his grandmother.

Rathborne, who recently got a tattoo of a Heinz ketchup bottle on his right leg, said he broke off from his family in other aspects, however. While his great-grandfather worked for Standard Oil, which is now Exxon, Rathborne decided to make his own money and become an actor.

Watch Jackson Rathborne discuss ‘The Twilight Saga-Breaking Dawn: Part 2′ and his family on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ below.
