Rumors of a romance between the Divergent actor and the former guitarist of the White Stripe have been buzzing around since before the start of the year. Now it seems as though these two famous faces may have found the time to connect while promoting their movies. What will this mean for fans of the iconic artists?
It was recently revealed that one of Pattinson’s upcoming projects will be a film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. While this may not seem like a big deal, let’s take a moment to appreciate the significance of this. If you’re a devoted fan of both men, this could mark the first time you’ve ever seen these two work together. What’s more, since The Taming of the Shrew is one of Shakespeare’s most frequently performed plays, this could mean a lot of interaction between you and Pattinson, and perhaps even a chance to meet the man himself. While this may seem like a dream come true for fans of the two actors, let’s keep in mind that it’s still very early in the game. They may not end up as a couple, after all.
Pattinson & Whitehall At The Golden Globes
Last year, fans of both actors witnessed the first real evidence of their budding romance when they were both nominated for a Golden Globe. In fact, it was the first time that anyone had ever seen Pattinson wear a tie and express himself in a serious manner. It also marked the first public appearance of their rumored romance. Since then, they’ve gone on to share an impressive array of cinematic moments together. Here are some of their most memorable interactions.
A Rolling Retreat
Shortly after being nominated for the Golden Globes, fans of both men were over the moon to learn that they had been invited to attend a cocktail reception at the Inverclyde Golf Club in Glasgow. While there are no reports of what actually took place at this event, we do know that it was the start of a very unique excursion. The following month, the two-time Oscar nominee visited Scotland again, this time accepting an award at the Scottish Film Awards in Glasgow. On this occasion, he made a speech thanking his “beautiful family” and revealing that he had no intention of leaving the country. After the ceremony, he and his guests went on a walking tour of the city before retiring to a restaurant for a special evening meal.
An Evening At The Palace
The following month, we were treated to another unforgettable episode of Pattinson’s rollercoaster ride of a life. On 5 February, he performed Oasis’s classic “Wonderwall” live at the BRIT Awards in London, marking the first time the song had been performed in public. This was followed by a second appearance on 6 February, when he graced the cover of British GQ and performed the same Oasis classic once again. Although this was just a small taste of what was to come, these public appearances marked the start of a phenomenal year for Pattinson. He was nominated for a BAFTA for his role as Edward Cullen in the film adaptation of the bestselling book series The Twilight Saga, won a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and was named Rising Star of the Year at the European Film Awards. These events and the following months were enough to make even the most dedicated fans wonder: Could this finally be the year of Robert Pattinson?
While things may seem to be going well for the Scottish star, it seems that his travels haven’t entirely been good. Rumors emerged in November that he had been kicked out of his $12 million Bel Air mansion after a major argument with his roommate. Since then, he hasn’t been seen in public and has mostly stayed at home. However, on 4 December, he celebrated Christmas at his $12 million Malibu mansion with his family and friends. Could this finally be the start of the end for Robert Pattinson?
A Rolling Encounter With One Of Hollywood’s Most Famous Couples
At the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, fans of both Pattinson and Whitehall were over the moon to learn that their lives had been made even more dramatic by the fact that they had both been nominated for a Golden Globe. This wasn’t the first time that the two had been recognized for their stunning acting abilities, as they had previously shared an Oscar nomination for their role in the 2005 film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Since then, they’ve starred in a number of critically and commercially successful blockbusters. These included the Divergent series, Moneyball, and the new James Bond movie, Shatterling.
While promoting Shatterling, actress Annette Bening was asked if she thought that the inclusion of a couple of famous faces – like Jack Whitehall and Robert Pattinson – would make a difference to the audience. “I think it’ll make all the difference in the world,” Bening said. “Because they are so recognizable, I think it’ll make people go see the movie just to see them. It’ll make a difference.” While this may sound like a vain attempt to bring in more viewers, it’s clear that Bening has her reasons for wanting these two popular actors to be in her film.
Pattinson Visits China To Film Adaptation Of Romeo And Juliet
In April, news surfaced that one of Pattinson’s upcoming projects would be an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in modern-day China. This will mark the first time that the British actor has filmed a TV series in China and the first time that Romeo and Juliet has been adapted for the big screen. It’s not yet known what role Pattinson will play in the production or how much he’ll be paid for his work.
While we await more information about the project, it’s clear that China has a special place in Pattinson’s heart. Before he became the global superstar he is today, the English actor went on a three-week retreat to Shenzhen in China to train for a role in the upcoming Quentin Tarantulinuion film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The shoot will take place in July this year and will be based on the life and work of Charlie Chaplin. To commemorate this occasion, fans of the two actors are planning a showing of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood at the Shanghai Film Festival this October.
If you’re a fan of either man, these latest Hollywood visits may be the perfect way to get a taste of what’s to come. Although there are no confirmed reports of a romance between these two actors, it’s clear that they are drawn to each other and that their lives seem to have found a stability that they’ve never really known. While this may seem like a dream come true for fans of the two actors, let’s keep in mind that these are very early days yet. Anything can still happen.
