In 2019, Robert Pattinson resurfaced as a single man, ending months of speculation about his personal life. Since then, the English actor has been linked to several female protagonists, including Olivia Cooke, Demi Moore, and more recently, Amal Clooney. But, while these relationships may be exciting, they are nonetheless, highly unlikely to be permanent. In today’s blog post, we’re going to explore the possibility of another love story for Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor.

The Short Lived, Yet Exciting Affair With Amal Clooney

On April 25, 2019, it was revealed that Pattinson had been dating Amal Clooney for several months. The couple were first photographed kissing at a premiere in Los Angeles in February. Since then, they have been heavily linked together, with Clooney frequently accompanied by photographers trying to catch the couple kissing or cuddling. Fans were initially excited about the pairing, given Pattinson’s relationship history and Clooney’s marriage to human rights lawyer George Clooney (see: ‘The Boss’). However, many began to wonder if the pair would last once their public appearances became more infrequent. Would a high profile romance last more than a couple of months?

Well, it appears that their romance is highly unlikely to last. As previously mentioned, Clooney has been accompanying photographers to try and catch the couple together. But in an interview with Vanity Fair, the actress said that the paparazzi attention is beginning to take a toll: “Sometimes it’s really hard to not even think about it. I’ve been asked about my relationship with Robert a thousand times.” She added: “I think people are aware that I’m not in the relationship, and I think it makes them more determined to keep pursuing me. It’s exhausting.”

This sentiment was echoed by Pattinson in a Vanity Fair interview, saying, “I want to be with her. But, you know, being chased by paparazzi is pretty bad for your mental health. It’s hard not to be in a bad place, when all you want is to be with the person you love.”

More Than Just a One-Night Stand With Olivia Cooke

In October 2019, the “Twilight” actor was spotted leaving a hotel in London with Olivia Cooke, the 28-year-old daughter of Sir Paul Cooke. The unlikely pair were first photographed smiling at each other before being joined by Cooke’s dog, as the actor departed. Following this, several other images of the trio surfaced, with Olivia seemingly affectionate toward her boyfriend. However, this was not a surprise, as Cooke had previously told the press that she and Pattinson were “heading towards a full-on relationship.”

While still relatively early stages, this romance is also highly unlikely to last. In an interview with the Evening Standard, Cooke stated that while she appreciates Pattinson’s “attentiveness,” she does not want a serious commitment: “I think that’s what scares me the most. I don’t want to settle down yet. I still want my freedom.”

Cooke also spoke with Vanity Fair about her father, who she believes is holding her back from pursuing her own desires: “I think he thinks I’m not ready, or that I don’t know how to take care of myself. He wants to protect me.” While it is likely that Cooke’s father will support her decision to date an “A-list” actor, it is clear that he does not approve of her romancing her “Twilight” co-star. Not to mention, Cooke is already in a relationship with the musician Matty Knowles, which her father does not know about. With all of these unknowns, it would be best for Olivia Cooke if she remained just a one-night stand for A-list actor Robert Pattinson.

Riding the Waves Of Popularity: Does Amal Clooney Make Robert Pattinson More Suitable?

Amal Clooney’s first marriage to human rights lawyer George Clooney was famously short-lived. The couple were married for only a matter of months before separating in 1997. While not technically “single” since that time, Clooney has been romantically linked to several other high profile individuals. Among them are Jeffery Epstein, the disgraced convicted paedophile who hanged himself in prison in August 2019, and Kyle Richards, the daughter of tennis legend Richard (for more details, see: ‘Rich And Famous Parenting Scandals’).

Given these previous relationships, many wondered if Clooney’s new romance with Robert Pattinson would be the making of a lasting impression. After all, Clooney is a highly accomplished woman, who has been photographed alongside some of the most prominent men in the world. And for someone who has been through so much, being with an elite group of individuals clearly appeals.

Perhaps, for Clooney, a good old-fashioned game of swipes could become a digital dating ritual, where she chases the high-profile men she meets on her phones, much like the paparazzi do.

But while being linked to some of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor prospects sounds like fun, it comes with its downsides. As previously mentioned, the attention bestowed upon Clooney by the media can be highly invasive, as was seen in 2019, when reporters camped outside of her apartment, waiting for her to emerge. Reporters also followed her to work and attended her award acceptance speeches, giving the actress less time for work and more time to think about her personal life. It is likely that Clooney does not feel comfortable being in a relationship with someone who is already highly pursued, and who may become even more so, once news of their association surfaces. Does dating a famous person make you more suitable for love? This is a question that Clooney will need to consider, as she embarks upon a new stage of her life.
