Ever wondered what happened between Pattinson and his third ex-wife, Twiggy? Or, perhaps, you’ve read rumours that he has a third nip on the trot. Well, wonder no more. Thanks to the magic of social media, you can now learn all about it.

Simply type “robert pattinson” into Twitter’s search bar, hit enter and voila, you’ll see a whole lot of nips in all their glory.

The 53-year-old actor and musician certainly seems to be keen on flaunting his lady parts. He regularly shares pictures of his nether regions on social media. While some people might find this behaviour embarrassing, to us, it’s just another instance of the quirky nature of this talented actor.

Here, we’ll explore the evidence for and against whether Pattinson has a third nip. So, let’s get to it.

Evidence For A Third Nipple

The first photo ever to surface of Pattinson displaying his nipples was back in 2012. Back then, the actor was sporting rather unbuttoned shirts and a rather visible nipple. Since then, he’s been rather open about his love for showing off his goods. He even collaborated with prominent feminist Meghan Murphy in 2018 to bring a bit of a ‘Nipplegate’ flavour to the feminist cause. Murphy, who campaigned for equal representation for women in media, shared a picture of the two of them with Pattinson seemingly sporting two nips. Murphy captioned the picture: “Finally, feminism wins.”

The 53-year-old actor has also been rather keen to show off his nipples on Instagram. The picturesque account boasts a nearly 130 million followers. In one of his latest Instagram stories, Pattinson shared a picture of himself in a black hoodie. He held a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Underneath the picture, he simply wrote: “Nipples.”

In another story, Pattinson is seen shirtless and with his arms around various women. One of the photos features the actor with his arms crossed, displaying his large nipples. He’s surrounded by a group of shirtless men, each wearing t-shirts with his name on it. You can almost see the resemblance to the ‘Wanted’ posters from the 1960s. What’s important to note is that in all these pictures, his nipples are prominently featured. He doesn’t hide them. He embraces them. So, it would seem that, yes, Robert Pattinson does indeed have a third nipple. Congratulations!

This is far from the first time that Pattinson, who is widely known for his eccentric social media habits, has caused controversy through his choice of clothing. In a 2016 interview with Wonderland Magazine, he was questioned about his propensity for bold fashion choices when he was asked about his then-recent turn towards a more masculine clothing style. He responded: “I love dressing up and being different. It’s liberating, isn’t it? As long as you’re not hurting anyone, why not experiment?”

Pattinson has also been known to be rather selective when it comes to which pictures he shares on social media. Back in 2014, he shared a staged picture on his Instagram account, teasing fans with an image of him shirtless. The image was a publicity stunt, staged with two women and a mannequin. He didn’t explain why he’d shared the picture, but many people speculated that he’d been inspired by the t-shirt cannon scene in Quentin Tarantulinu’s 1995 film, ‘Pulp Fiction’. The movie is infamous for its abundant use of t-shirts as a prop. Tarantulinu has been known to poke fun at celebrities and social media in particular through his movies. He himself is a self-confessed “huge fan” of Robert Pattinson’s.

Evidence Against A Third Nipple

Of course, not all is well on the social media front for Robert Pattinson. His Instagram story containing the “Nipples” quote, which garnered nearly 2 million views globally at the time of writing, was met with widespread criticism. Many pointed out that the quote was lifted verbatim from a now-deleted page on the satirical site the Onion. In fact, the page was simply an April Fools’ joke. The quote had originally appeared on a message board on the satirical news site back in 2012.

The Onion did not immediately respond to a request for comment as to whether or not they had any connection to the original post.

While many people have continued to question whether or not Pattinson has a third nipple, he has continued to speak out about his love for showing off his body. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he stated: “I have a really nice set of nipples. A lot of people don’t think so, but I do. They’re large and rather perfect. I like to be naked and show off my body. So, I like to work my nipples, let them go at full strength when I dance or when I’m working out… It really depends on the outfit. Whatever makes it comfortable for me.”

Pattinson has also spoken out about how he prefers to present himself on social media, in contrast to how he presents himself in real life. In a 2013 interview with Conan O’Brien, he said: “On social media, I post a lot of pictures with friends and family, which I don’t really do in real life. I don’t want to show off my family and friends, so I don’t usually do that. So, on social media, I feel like I can be a lot more fun and a lot more myself. A lot more imperfect.”

These quotes, along with much of the criticism that comes with them, would seem to suggest that no, Robert Pattinson does not have a third nipple. But, then again, he might not have said everything he thinks. It’s difficult to know with certainty what goes on behind closed doors.

What is clear is that, as more and more people turn to social media to discover the news and gossip about their favourite celebrities, we’re likely to learn a lot more about them than we’d ever want to know. For those interested, Robert Pattisson’s Instagram is full of extremely questionable content, including countless pictures of himself in various states of undress, as well as various references to drug use. He often posts videos where he shows off his skills as a carpenter and musician, using tools like guitars, pianos and hammers. While some people might find this type of content exciting, it’s probably not for those who are seeking health information. We would suggest that those seeking such content should look elsewhere. And, for those seeking an attractive male pinup, better luck next time, mate.
