Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the new couple on the block – or rather, the beach – and they’ve been enjoying life in the spotlight since their split from Hollywood bad boy Pattinson in October 2015. While they’re both still in the spotlight today, an important question remains: Does Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have a baby together?
It’s been almost two years since Rob stunned the celebrity world by announcing his engagement to Kristen, and fans continue to wonder if the couple has made it down the aisle. In early April 2017, the British actor and the Hollywood actress were snapped with their arms around each other as they posed for photographers on a Barcelona beach. The couple also shared an adorable photo on Twitter, which has since been republished countless times on social media.
While it’s clear that Rob and Kristen are still happy to pose for photographs together, it’s less clear if the relationship has evolved into something more. Rob has regularly been spotted with his arm around various female celebs, and in October 2016 he was even seen kissing a mystery brunette as he arrived at a premiere in New York City. Most recently, a spy reportedly photographed the two hugging and kissing at an intimate celebration dinner in London.
Whether or not Rob and Kristen have tied the knot, it’s been an eventful 24 months for their fans. The actor has had an eventful 24 months, having spent much of the time since his split from Pattinson working on his new film project, the action-adventure crime drama Death on the Nile. It premiered at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival, and stars an ensemble cast including Jason Clarke, Mads Mikkelsen, and Alfred Enoch. It focuses on the daring young detective, Carter (Clarke), who uses his wits and keen instincts to unravel a mysterious case set in an exotic African setting.
While we await the Sundance premiere and the beginning of the film’s worldwide rollout on January 25, 2018, it’s worth taking a trip down memory lane to revisit some of Rob’s most memorable moments from over the past two years.
The First Promo Photo Shoot For The New Film
The first thing most fans will remember about the new film is the incredible promos. It was revealed in October 2017 that the actor had used his 24-year-old film Magic (which starred a young Rupert Everett) as a test run for Death on the Nile, and the footage was absolutely stunning. The film follows the titular magic detective as he investigates a string of mysterious murders in London in 1898. Rob uses a combination of magic and science to examine the crime scene, discovering a link to an infamous English criminal whose modus operandi was making his victims disappear. Several days later, they would reappear somewhere else, sometimes with no memory of where they had been or what they had done. The trailer for Death on the Nile was released in March 2017 and quickly went viral, racking up millions of views across all platforms. The film garnered largely positive reviews, with many critics hailing it as an early contender for the best British film of all time.
Revealing The Mystery Woman In The Photo
Shortly after the first promo photos for Death on the Nile were published in October 2017, the mystery woman in the photos was identified as Twilight beauty Kristen Stewart. The images have since become something of an internet phenomenon, with fans eager to find out more about the pair’s relationship. Stewart has been spotted in London with Rob on a number of occasions over the past two years, and in October 2016 they were photographed holding hands as they arrived at a premiere for Snow White And the Huntsman: Winter Snow. The pair was also seen enjoying a date night out in London in April 2016, and in February 2017 Rob was spotted with an unidentified brunette at an upscale restaurant in the city. Most recently, the pair enjoyed a romantic night out in Barcelona, Spain, where they were photographed hugging and kissing as they left a dinner party on April 13, 2017. This has led many to believe that Stewart and Rob may have gotten married, or at least entered into a committed relationship.
The Cannes And Golden Globe Nominations
It was another major coup for Rob and Stewart when the Cannes Film Festival selected Death on the Nile as its closing-night film for the 2017 edition in May 2017. A week later, the film went on to win the Golden Globe for Best Film – Drama, also scooping up Best Actor in a Drama at the 2017 SAG Awards in November 2017. The following month, the awards show nominated the couple for a GLAAD Media Award, with Stewart being nominated for her performance in the film. The awards ceremony will take place in March 2018.
The London Film Critics’ Circle Awards 2017
Another major honor for Rob, who is a five-time BAFTA winner, came in the form of the London Film Critics’ Circle Awards in October 2017. The awards ceremony is held annually and is one of the most prestigious film competitions in the U.K. This year saw the ceremony split into two parts: the first part was a telecast, while a second part was held in London. The actor was nominated for three awards: Outstanding British Film, Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director, or Producer, and Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. The telecast, which was held in May, saw him win Outstanding British Film and Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. He beat off competition from the likes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Vice to win the Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role prize. It’s fair to say that the London Film Critics Circle Awards are arguably the most prestigious film awards in the U.K., and they’ve been known to propel box-office success for their winners. Death on the Nile premiered in London in October 2017 to critical acclaim, and went on to win the award for Best Film – Drama in the most recent London Film Critics’ Circle Awards.
The Toronto International Film Festival 2017
Another big win for Rob wasn’t captured on screen but came in the form of the Toronto International Film Festival. The festival, which runs from September 12 to 26, 2017, is one of the world’s greatest theatrical events and sees some of the biggest movies of the year showcased. This year’s edition of the festival, held in September 2017, had something for everyone: big-name Hollywood releases, acclaimed Canadian films, and plenty of indie gems. Death on the Nile premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2017 and went on to win the Best Film – Drama prize at the prestigious gala on October 12, making it the couple’s second Toronto Film Festival win. It also marked their third win at the Seattle International Film Festival, where they scooped up the award for Best Drama Film in October 2016, and the San Francisco International Film Festival, where they won the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role three years in a row (2012-2014).
The Venice Film Festival 2017
Another big win for the duo came in the form of the Venice Film Festival. The festival, which is one of the biggest film events in the world, attracts critics, stars, and audiences from across the globe, and this year its 73rd edition was no exception. Rob and Stewart’s first date at the festival, which ran from August 29 to September 9, was marked by a media circus and rumors of an engagement. The pair were snapped holding hands and kissing as they walked the red carpet together in Venice in early August 2017. While not officially confirmed, many fans believe that Stewart is the mystery woman in the photos.
The British Independent Film Awards 2017
Another major boost for Rob came from the British Independent Film Awards, where he was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in Death on the Nile. The awards ceremony will take place in London in April 2018. It was another major upset for Rob at the 2017 BIFA’s, where he lost out to Hollywood star Will Smith for his performance in the movie Rough Night in Newport.
The Academy Awards 2018
Finally, let’s not forget about the Academy Awards (aka The Oscars), where Rob will compete for a Best Actor win against some heavy competition. The show will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 24, 2018. The 67th Annual Academy Awards will be a celebration of cinema and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. If your favorite film star is up for an award, then you’ll undoubtedly want to stay tuned for the Oscars telecast on February 24. This will be one of the biggest events of the year, so make sure you follow all the news and take note of who wins what!
