Just when you thought the Twilight saga couldn’t get any more exciting, it did. Thanks to the beautiful and talented Robert Pattinson. We’re pretty sure you all know who he is, but just in case, here’s a quick refresher: Robert Pattinson is the English actor who played Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. Now, not only is he a part of the Twilight universe, but he also happens to be partnered with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the 2017 summer. And wouldn’t you know it, she’s the beautiful and enigmatic model who plays Bella Swan in Twilight. In other words, it’s kind of like Twilight’s Edward Cullen, Adam Lambert, and Bella Swan are currently in a committed relationship. So, in honor of this momentous occasion, here’s a roundup of everything we know about Robert Pattinson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and their budding relationship.
A Brief History Of Robert Pattinson
Before we dive into the juicy tidbits, let’s take one quick look back at Robert Pattinson’s long and storied career. He was born on May 12, 1985 in London, England. He began acting at a young age, starring in several films and TV shows, before being cast as Edward Cullen in Twilight. He then went on to star in the four other films in The Twilight Saga. While many actors have played the character of Edward Cullen since the franchise began in 2008, it’s pretty safe to say that Pattinson is the best in the franchise. He once again starred in a film titled High Tide as Edward Cullen this year. In addition to acting, Robert Pattinson is also a singer-songwriter. He co-wrote the song “Sultana” with Clean Bandit members Jack & Tom. It was released last year and reached #8 on the UK Singles Chart. He also provided background vocals for the song. In 2017, he released his debut solo album, entitled, “Good Morning Sunshine.” The track listing for the album includes a song co-written with Adele called “Tougher Than Fiction.” The title track was also featured on the 2016 movie “La La Land.” And if all of that wasn’t enough, in 2009, he created his own production company, Leisure Lakes, and began developing his own projects. So, not only is he a great actor and singer, but he’s also proven to be quite the entrepreneur as well. If you’re reading this, Mr. Pattinson, and we know you are, we want to give you a big ol’ #TeamEdward salute!
The Biggest News Since The Beginnings Of The Twilight Saga
While we await the premiere of Twilight Saga: Eclipse, a new trailer has surfaced showing off some of the most gorgeous and breathtaking cinematography we’ve seen since the franchise’s debut. And what’s more is it offers up some incredible new revelations about the upcoming film. We’re not going to give it all away here, but if you want to find out more, then you best get watching. The footage was shot by the legendary Peter Godfrey, who also shot the four Twilight films and the upcoming Breaking Dawn Part 2. It also marks the directorial debut for Kelly Marie Tran. The new trailer begins with a quote from an interview with Tran from earlier this year. In it, she spoke about how she used to read fanfiction about herself and her character, Summer:
“One day, while reading some fan fiction, I found myself in these characters’ shoes, and it was like a surreal experience. Then, I started thinking that maybe I could do something different, something that wasn’t what people expected. Something fresh. I began to see Edward not as an Edward but as a guy that had so much more going on. He liked anime and manga, he was always trying to get away from his dad, and he had a lot of secrets. I think it’s really cool how much the fans get into it and how much they love what I’m doing.”
So, What’s New With Edward And Bella Since The Last Time We Saw Them
Since the last time we saw Edward and Bella was in Breaking Dawn Part 1, quite a bit has happened. For one, they’ve both gotten married. Edward’s wedding to Bella was beautiful and filled with family and friends. It was also held in Italy, which is where the series is set, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if the scenery reminded Edward of his formative years. What’s more is that they now have a son, William, who recently turned 10 years old. And just when you think life couldn’t get any more exciting for the Cullen family, it did. Last year, Bella gave birth to a daughter, Helen, who just turned one. So, for the first time ever in the history of the saga, we have three Cullen children under the age of four. In a bizarre turn of events, Bella and Helen’s dad is also William’s granddad. So, as you can see, the family is literally full of love and joy. Perhaps the happiest moment of the wedding was when Bella danced with her dad, Charlie Swan.
While most people know who Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is, thanks to her role as Bella Swan, her fame might not be as widely known outside of the Twinkle Community. That is, unless you’re a fan of hers on TikTok, where she currently has over 2.5 million followers. If you’re not familiar, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a model, actress, and fashion stylist who rose to prominence after being featured on the cover of Vogue Australia in 2014. Since then, she’s been in several high-profile campaigns for big-name fashion houses such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton, as well as Victoria’s Secret and its spin-off, VS Angel. She’s also been in numerous TV shows and films, including Netflix series, The Get Down, where she plays one of the leads, Rosie. It is currently available to stream.
The Romance And Relationship Between Robert Pattinson and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
As we previously mentioned, Robert Pattinson is currently partnered with model, actress, and fashion stylist Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for the summer of 2017. While the pair remain relatively private and tight-lipped about their relationship, there are a few things we know about it so far. First, the two started dating in 2015 after meeting at a mutual friend’s birthday party. Second, they’ve both been married before, with William acting as their ring-bearer. Finally, and most importantly, it’s pretty safe to assume that Edward and Bella’s children played a role in bringing the two together. As previously mentioned, Bella is now married to Edward, and they have a son, William, who is 10 years old. Rosie has twin daughters, Mary and Alice, from a previous relationship with musician, Johnny Depp. So, it’s possible that the two couples met through their children, who now spend a lot of time together. Or, it could be that Rosie just happens to be the perfect match for the reserved English actor.
