As a movie star, model, and social media superstar, Robert Pattinson is arguably one of the most recognizable faces in the world. And now that he’s taken the plunge and committed to being an actor, he’s gaining a lot of attention for his role in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The 25-year-old Twilight star began dating the 25-year-old musician a little under a year ago. Since then, they’ve been a sight to behold. From attending Cannes Film Festival as a couple in May to travelling to New York City for an art-house movie premiere in October, it seems like there’s never a dull moment when these two are together.
So let’s take a look at some of the interesting facts about Robert Pattinson and his girlfriend. Shall we?
They Have A Sweet Affinity For Art
When it comes to art, the two are definitely kindred spirits. As a child, Robert was extremely imaginative and would spend hours playing with paint and drawing. His mother, Lynne, would later tell a British newspaper, “He’s always been a very artistic boy. Even as a toddler he could draw pictures of flowers or animals and they were always very good. I think a lot of people find him very charming. He has a way with words too. We used to call him ‘the wordsmith.’ He loves to talk.”
Since then, the actor’s interests have gravitated toward the arts. In fact, their apartment in São Paulo, Brazil, is adorned with Picasso, Warhol, and Lichtenstein artwork.
They Like To Experiment With Fashion
While the two may be attached at the hip when it comes to their shared passion for art, they’re not afraid to experiment with fashion either. For instance, they recently sported matching black-and-white outfits at the MET Gala in New York City.
And in October 2014, Vogue UK named the on-again, off-again couple as its “It Couple” for 2014. The magazine described their seemingly chaotic lifestyle as “charismatic.”
They’re Both Creative Types
While Robert has largely kept a low profile in the entertainment industry, he’s certainly not short of creativity. Back in 2011, he told Men’s Health, “I’ve always been the type of person who likes to come up with ideas and then see them through. I think that can be really useful in whatever endeavor you choose.”
Likewise, Kristen is a self-described “creative person’s creative person,” having dabbled in fashion and design since she was a teen. In 2007, she co-founded the fashion house KRISTEN WESTON, which specializes in graphic tees and hoodies.
“I’ve always been drawn to creating and designing new things,” she told Allure. “I guess it stems back to when I was a little girl and would draw on my dad’s shirts.”
They’re Good In Bed, Too
Although we don’t know much about their romantic life, it’s clear that the two are also committed to each other in bed. When they’re not cuddling or holding hands, they’re usually embracing in a passionate kiss. In March 2015, PAPER published an interesting interview with an anonymous woman who claims to have a threesome with the hunky actor and musician. According to the article, the woman stated, “They make love like wolves, their eyes never leaving each other’s. They’ve got a connection that’s as genuine as it is sensual and I wouldn’t have minded being a third party to break up the pair. It’s beautiful. We doggy-style and it’s truly an encounter to behold. They’re both animal lovers and I think that comes through in every way. They’re definitely both into experimenting in the bedroom too.”
Whether or not this story is true, it’s clear that the two are deeply committed to each other. And despite all the ups and downs of their relationship, they’ve always managed to work through their issues and find a way to be there for each other. As he put it in a 2015 interview with Nylon, “We’ve been through a lot, but I think we’ve grown a lot as people and as a couple. Sometimes we fight, like any couple does, but then we make up and it’s like nothing happened. We always come back and apologize to each other and make up.”
This kind of commitment to each other is something to be admired, and something we can learn from.
