Robert Pattinson is relieved he earns so much money - because it enabled him to save his dog's life when the puppy fell sick.
The actor recently adopted a stray pooch from a shelter in Louisiana - where he has been filming The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - to keep him company when he stays in hotels.
The British star was devastated when his pet fell ill with canine parvovirus, but he immediately used his wealth to order the best possible healthcare for the pup.
Pattinson tells Britain's Elle magazine, "It sounds ridiculous but my dog was sick with a puppy disease called parvo and it was such a relief being able to go into the vet and say, 'I want the best, immediately.'"
