In case you missed it, Robert Pattinson, the 26-year-old British actor best known for his Twilight role, was recently married to longtime girlfriend and muse Emma Watson. The couple’s wedding on May 24 was followed by a week of celebration events in London and Paris. The following is a brief history of Robert Pattinson’s life and love interests, as told by The New York Times.
Early Life and Career
Robert Pattinson was born in London on August 24, 1986. He began acting professionally at the age of three and appeared in a number of British films and TV shows before being cast as Edward Cullen in the Twilight film series in 2008. Since then, he has steadily appeared in big-budget films, often alongside A-list actresses. In 2014, he was nominated for a BAFTA awards for his portrayal of Charlie Booth in HBO’s The Night Manager.
Over the course of his career, Robert Pattinson has proven to be quite the lover (and husband) whacker. He first made waves in 2010 when he was photographed kissing film star Fanny Chesson on the set of Green Lantern. In December 2012, he was spotted canoodling with Vanessa Hudgens on a double date in London. During a January 2014 interview with Vogue, Vanesa revealed that she and Robert had been exchanging vows for two years. The two have also collaborated on a number of costume ideas, including a wedding suite for Emma’s wedding to Watson in May 2014.
Riding The Viking Baby Boom
While many adults may be reliving the glory days of summer camp by couch surfing through Netflix and Hulu, the kids at Camp Redwood are having fun in their own way. Thanks in large part to a surging baby boom demographic, the child toy industry is riding a wave of sales as parents purchase products for their toddlers and preschoolers. As a result, several iconic toy companies have recorded record sales in the last year. Take, for example, JAK and ALEXANDRE’s Luminous Lemonade Candy Cannon, which saw sales rise 45% compared to last year. Other notable toy successes include Hot Wheels (up 26%), KÖNIG (up 20%), and JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS (up 15%).
In light of this, it’s no wonder that panties have become such a hot topic on social media. While many adults may have first become interested in panties as sex playthings for adults, today parents often use panties as a means of clothing their baby in. A 2014 NPD study found that parents are more likely to use panties as a convenient layering system for their children rather than just a sexual item. According to the study, 71% of pantie users intend to layer their children in the product in a way that is convenient for them. Additionally, 65% intend to use panties when bathing their child in case they get wet in the process.
Before his recent marriage to Watson, Robert Pattinson was marrying an already-married woman, Cressida Lackey. They had been dating for four years and were together for the majority of that time. Their engagement was first announced in May 2011 and the couple married in a private ceremony in December 2012. Their wedding was a pink smackdown of the royal ceremony, with Lackey wedding her partner in a rose-coloured dress. They endearingly called their matching wedding suits their “honeymoon jacket” and “honeymoon jacket”, respectively.
While Robert Pattinson is most famous for his love for K-pop artists and his friendship with Kylie Minogue, he is also a self-professed fan of The Black Sabbath and the legendary rock band Led Zeppelin. In fact, Robert Pattinson’s first interview in Vogue magazine was about the band and their legendary singer Jimmy Page.
Relationship With Vanessa Hudgens
The most recent and highly publicized romance of Robert Pattinson’s is with Vanessa Hudgens. They first met in a London Bar Bazaar photo shoot in December 2012 and quickly became good friends. In January 2014, Robert Pattinson was exclusively accessed by Vogue and told his version of how he first began seeing Vanessa Hudgens. According to him, the encounter was pure coincidence.
“I was really late one night, and I saw this amazingly beautiful girl walking home by herself. I thought to myself, ‘God, I want to talk to her.’ The next thing I did was to walk up to her and ask her for a drink. We just sort of connected over books and music, and I believe that she is the most intriguing woman I’ve ever met. Vanessa is the most introverted person I’ve ever known, but still, within her, she is the most intriguing person I’ve ever known. I just adore her and everything about her.”
Vanessa Hudgens is the daughter of the late Rory Hudgens, the founder and chairman of Tricor Holdings, a multinational construction company that specializes in real estate development and acquisitions. Born in London, Vanessa spent her childhood and teenage years there before moving to New York City at the age of sixteen. She then attended The Stony Brook School for Girls. While there, she participated in the SBSP’s competitive swimming team and spent her free time practicing with a personal trainer and working out at the New York YMCA.
