As Hollywood stars, the sons of well-known actors Robert and Elizabeth know how to keep their names in the headlines. After all, they share the same initials as one of the most popular movie franchises ever made: the Pattinson Brothers. While most people know the brothers as actors, there is so much more to them than meets the eye.
Here are some interesting tidbits about Andrew and Robert Pattinson:
They Are Popular Names In Their Own Right.
Before they were famous, the two brothers were named after prominent people. Andrew was born in New York City on April 29, 1982, and named after singer and songwriter Andrew Lloyd Webber. He has a younger brother, William (Billy).
Similarly, Robert was born in Los Angeles on February 1, 1984, and is named after architect and urban planner Robert Lewis Pattinson. He has two younger brothers, Luke and Hugo.
It’s no secret that the brothers are popular. Their parents’ celebrity probably helped spawn a “modern day Kennedy family.”
Their Birthdays Are Popular Holiday Days.
While most people may not know this about the brothers, their birthdays are some of the most popular days for baby showers. The couple had their sons’ birthdays party in New York City on April 29, 2014, which was also the same day as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 69th birthday. The following year, it was the turn of Luke and Robert Pattinson.
Some of the most prominent names associated with these birthdays include Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, and Priyanka Chopra. The Indian actress and singer even posted a photo with the twins on her Instagram account with the caption, “My beautiful nephews turned 1 today. What an incredible year this has been, and I couldn’t be more proud of them. Happy Birthday, Robert and Luke.”
They Are Personal Friends Of The Muppets.
It seems that the Pattinson brothers have many friends in common. This year has seen the brothers develop a close friendship with a group of famous faces including Jim Henson’s children, the Muppets. The comedians Andy and Dave are particularly associated with the brothers. They frequently appear in comedic sketches alongside the twins.
As moviegoers know, Andy and Dave are best friends with Kermit the Frog. They even named their character after him. One of the best things that happened to the twins this year was their meeting the Muppets. It seems that the brothers have become big fans of the puppet group and even asked permission to use their catchphrase, “Take it easy, guys.” in an upcoming movie they are helming together.
They Are Genuinely Proud Of Their Native American Heritage.
While he was growing up, Robert Pattinson wasn’t the typical eight-year-old boy. He spent a significant amount of his time focusing on his Native American heritage. Not only does he have several Native American friends, he is also a direct descendant of Elizabeth Warren, a renowned Native American historian.
As an adult, he has continued to be proud of his Indian roots and has expressed a desire to find out more about his family’s history. To learn more, he has had his DNA tested and is planning to publish a book on the subject.
This desire to learn more about his family led him to create a foundation in honor of his Native American heritage. The Robert Pattinson Native American Heritage Foundation is dedicated to educating the public about American Indian history and culture, and supporting education in Native American studies. Some of its initiatives include sponsoring lectures and providing grants to students and teachers who want to learn more about Native American culture and history. The foundation also provides a library of Native American-related books and hosts an annual tribal art auction to benefit local schools and cultural centers. In addition, the foundation provides scholarships for Native American students and encourages public schools to teach about American Indian culture and history.
They Are Professionals In The Making.
Even before they became famous, the twins were already making a name for themselves as film producers and directors. While they have been involved in film projects since their teenage years, it wasn’t until this year that they officially launched a film production company called Cloud Nine Creative.
Their company focuses on developing, producing, and financing adventurous and action-adventure films. One of Cloud Nine Creative’s first projects will be an adaptation of the Roald Dahl book, The Witches. Other upcoming films include Blackguard, High Noon, and Wind Chill. While these projects sound like they could be great adventures, it’s clear that the twins are using their newfound fame to further their careers.
They Are Active In Cultural Causes.
It isn’t just about making money for the two brothers. They have both been extremely active in supporting cultural causes which have helped bring more attention to the Indian community. While Robert has been known to appear at screenings of Django Unchained and marched in a Native American parade with Martin Scorsese, Andrew has worked with the American Indian community to establish a museum in New York City. The Museum of the American Indian: Art and Textile Arts will showcase the work of American Indian designers and artisans as well as provide a public forum for discussing American Indian issues. In addition, the Robert Pattinson Native American Heritage Foundation helps fund this and other cultural causes. It sponsors lectures, exhibits, and workshops about various aspects of American Indian history and culture, particularly in New York City. It also provides outreach to high schools, museums, and cultural organizations throughout the city. In other words, the twins are using their fame for good.
At the end of the day, the brothers are simply two young men who are pursuing their dream and doing a lot of wonderful things with their lives. While it’s easy to see them as high-profile celebrities, it’s important to remember that they are only two regular guys trying to make the world a better place. We celebrate the achievements of this dynamic duo and wish them all the best in the future. Keep up the good work!
