If you are a fan of the Hollywood blockbuster Batman movie franchise, then you might be confused as to which of the many actors who have played the caped crusader over the years is the true descendant of the character. While Christian Bale was born and raised in England, his Hollywood career actually started with playing Ronald Reagan in the biopic film The President’s Man. Since then, he has gone on to play numerous high-profile, iconic roles, such as journalist Arthur Britton in the 2015 film I, Tonya, and now, the batman himself.
Unlike many celebrities, whose lives are often ruled by paparazzi and public relations campaigns, Hollywood’s Golden Child — Mr. Pattinson — has always kept a low public profile. In fact, he has gone to such lengths to avoid the press that he even made a joke about it in a recent interview. When asked about his favorite part of being an actor, he replied, “I don’t know. There is a part of me that really doesn’t want to be famous. I want to just do my work and go home.”
So, which Robert Pattinson is the real deal, and which one is just a tabloid puppet? After reading this article, you will discover the truth about Mr. Pattinson and his amazing life.

While at the drama school, he met his future wife, FKA twigs, with whom he has a daughter, Genevieve. The couple married in 2014 and filed for divorce in May 2016.

In addition to his film work, Mr. Pattinson has been seen on stage, where he performed a one-man play, Outspoken, in London in 2014.
Is He Really Related To The Batman?
Since he has always kept a low profile, it is impossible to confirm whether Mr. Pattinson is or is not the true descendant of the original Batman. However, a number of clues suggest that he is. First, his middle name is Cecil, after the Golden Child’s great uncle, Cecil Rhodes. Second, like the Batman, Mr. Pattinson was born on December 2, and is named after British hero and statesman Winston Churchill. Third, both men were brought up in the United Kingdom and were educated at a private school called Woldingham School. Finally, the Golden Child has stated in interviews that he is a fan of the Batman movies and that he would like to one day play the iconic superhero.
No Clothes, No Problem
While most celebrities are used to being photographed in fancy dress, Mr. Pattinson actually prefers to be photographed without any clothing on. In fact, being naked is one of the ways he has chosen to express himself as an actor. When asked if he prefers filming naked scenes or in costume, he replied, “It’s funny, isn’t it? At first, I definitely wanted to be covered up. But now that I think about it, I’ve never felt more free.” He later added, “Part of what I love about performing is that you can be as creative as you want to be and not really worry about what people will say about you. You can be as unique as you want to be.”
A Real Night Owl
Despite maintaining a highly public profile, Mr. Pattinson actually enjoys spending his free time at home, where he reads and watches movies. In interviews, he has said that he gets pleasure from making others guess what he is thinking or feeling, and that he enjoys bringing characters to life through acting. He has also said that he likes to stay up later than most people and that he likes to sleep in the afternoon. So, if you ever meet him, don’t be surprised if he appears to be sleeping, even when he is actually wide awake!
Pattinson’s Relationship With Women
While Mr. Pattinson has dated numerous women in the past, he has never actually been married. In 2015, he briefly dated actress and singer Lira Qureshi and in 2016, he was seen leaving the home of actor Andrew Garfield. In March 2017, Vanity Fair published a story detailing Mr. Pattinson’s infidelity and the amount of women he has slept with. According to the report, he has cheated on all of his ex-wives and has had sex with at least three other women during the course of his marriage to FKA twigs. He is now engaged to artist Imogen Heap and is planning to marry her in the spring of 2021.
Rumor Has It
According to online tabloids, Mr. Pattinson is extremely private and doesn’t like to be tied down by contracts. As a result, there is a rumor that he will only act in films that he can direct himself and that he will use his fame to negotiate lower rates. This could mean that we might see him take on more independent or quasi-independent films in the near future.
What Does The Future Hold?
With so many iconic roles to his name and a growing number of projects to work on, it’s clear that Mr. Pattinson has an exciting career ahead of him. If you are a fan of the Batman franchise, then you will no doubt be interested in seeing what roles he will go on to play in the future.
