The actor Rob Pattinson is known for his roles in the Twilight series and the current James Bond film, Spectre. However, he has played a variety of roles in other films and TV shows. Here are 10 things you may not know about Rob.
Rob Was Once On Set During A Battle Between Two Movie Monsters
The actor was on set during a battle between two movie monsters in 2015 when a stunt went wrong. According to TMZ, one of the monsters was supposed to swoop in and kill the other. But during a fight scene, one of the stuntmen holding a stick got hit in the crossfire and suffered serious injuries. That was the end of his stuntman career. Thankfully, he recovered and is now back on set.
While waiting for the injuries to heal, Pattinson had to take a bit part in the film as the wounded actor. Since then, he has stated that he would like to pursue a career in acting full-time, and has lined up a series of major roles. He is currently filming the next installment of The Twilight Saga, which will be released in 2019.
He Is One Of The Most Successful English Actors Of All Time
According to the Guinness World Records, Rob is one of the most successful English actors of all time. He is tied with Christopher Lee for 11th place on the list. Together, they are the only actors to have appeared in major Hollywood films that were a best-seller at the book store (Guinness World Records 2019).
The actor has also been recognized for his work with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In 2018, he was awarded the Gold Medal for Excellence in Shakespearean Acting at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) for his role as Richard II in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of the playwright’s work.
He Is Of Irish Origin
The Irish actor is a third generation Irishman, and he credits his success to his Irish heritage. His mother is Anglo-Irish, and his father is Irish. So, he grew up in an environment rich in Irish accents and traditions. On his father’s side, he is a descendant of the Cooney family, an influential clan in Co. Wicklow who helped establish the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. His ancestors are William and Margaret Cooney, who built the Cooney Castle, located outside of Dublin. The castle now houses a museum dedicated to Irish history and culture. On his mother’s side, he is a descendant of the O’Brien clan, a family that helped establish Castlebar in Ireland as well as the city of Limerick. In 2018, he spoke about his Irish roots in an interview with The Guardian.
His Family Owned A Piccolo Teal And Pussycat Boutique In Milan
If you have ever seen the film adaptation of the best-selling Fifty Shades of Grey series, then you know the multi-billion-dollar niche the erotic fiction genre has carved out for itself in popular culture. But perhaps you didn’t realize that the family of the actor who plays Christian Grey owned a boutique in Milan that specialized in piccolo teal and pussycat fur coats.
If you believe the gossip magazines, Christian’s parents left their multi-million-dollar home in London and moved to Florence, Italy, so they could be closer to their children. That’s where they bought the boutique, which became a famous landmark in Milan. It was shut down in 2018 due to COVID guidelines, but it’s still remembered as the place where Christian Grey first encountered kinky sex. When the store reopened in April of this year, it adopted a new name, GreyWolf Enterprises, and the Milanese designer Christian Louboutin designed a special T-shirt logo to commemorate the occasion.
He Is A Fashion Icon In His Own Right
Aside from acting, Rob has been involved in a variety of other creative pursuits, including fashion. The actor has been described as a style icon by Vogue, and he has a unique aesthetic that has influenced a variety of fashion trends since his rise to fame.
It’s not just about his handsome looks either. The fashion industry has recognized his influence, and he has been named one of the most powerful and influential people in fashion. In 2018, Elle named him one of the most influential men in Hollywood, and that same year, Vogue put him on their cover with the legend Gloria Swanson. He even made the cover of Time magazine in 2013, and the publication hailed him as ‘a new Renaissance Man’.
The best way to illustrate Rob’s fashion impact is by looking at the various ways in which his style has been emulated by other celebrities. If you listen to the gossip magazines, then you’ll know that Justin Bieber wears a lot of shirts with hoods as a tribute to the English actor’s iconic look. The late fashion icon Gianni Versace is also alleged to have worn a shirt with a hood as an outfit motif. Donatella Versace is said to have named her newborn son after the Italian designer in homage to his late father. And since the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film, the erotic fiction genre has gained a whole new wave of fans who want to replicate Christian Grey’s look. More recently, Lady Gaga sported a top hat and sunglasses similar to those worn by the actor when he was a teenager. Of course, Gaga isn’t the only one who has emulated Rob’s look. Take a look at some of the most influential people in fashion and you’ll see that he has been the source of a whole lot of rip-offs.
He Is A Big Wine Enthusiasts And Lover Of Good Food
Rob is often found in the company of other famous and distinguished people, whether playing a part in an upcoming movie or attending a social event. He has been spotted at the Chateau Marmont, drinking wine and dining on extravagant foods by the Seacoast Magazine.
The 48-year-old actor has a passion for food and drink that most people don’t even know they have. According to an interview he gave in 2014, the British actor stated that he drinks a bottle of wine every day and enjoys fine cuisine. He also told the interviewer that he didn’t think he would ever be able to stay in one place for too long because he was constantly traveling for work. It seems part of the reason he moved around so much is so that he could enjoy different cuisines and different cultural experiences.
His Passion For Art And Design Is Second To None
Even if he isn’t acting, which he seems to prefer, Rob always finds time to be creative. The English actor designs his own shirts, and he is also known to paint and draw. He even made a short film about the Holocaust, and he designed the poster and costumes for a production of William Shakespeare’s King Lear.
The fact that he is so interested in both art and design isn’t a new phenomenon either. Growing up, Rob said that he wanted to be a painter since he was a child, and after he attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School, he was able to follow through on his desire. He studied design at the Royal College of Art in London, and during one of his internships, he worked for the renowned fashion designer, John Galliano. It was there that he got his first taste of high-end fashion, and it appears to have stuck. Since then, he has continually worked in fashion, and he has been a part of some of the most memorable fashion shows of all time, not to mention epic collaborations with some of the most influential and creative designers in the world.
He Is A Shrewd Businessman
As well as being a talented and prominent actor, Rob has also been a shrewd businessman. According to Vanity Fair, the actor is famous for taking on small business owners who try to intimidate him on social media sites like Twitter. It seems that the famous family business, Rob’s Grandfather Colin’s company, is the original source of his entrepreneurial spirit. In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the actor said that he didn’t plan on following in his family’s footsteps and starting a business. But when he saw that so many established brands were being bought out by large companies, he decided to try and do something about it. He started with a small online store that sold fake designer goods, and then began designing his own clothing line. When his clothing line started to gain popularity, he decided to expand into the luxury market, where he could make a real difference. Now, he owns a number of businesses, including a fashion house, a record label, and a film production company. So he definitely knew what he was doing when he decided to become a successful entrepreneur.
