Rumors of a possible engagement between Robert Pattinson and a fan of The Twilight Saga abound. The latest news cycle has spawned several pieces of supposedly groundbreaking evidence – a selfie on Pattinson’s Instagram and a heart-shaped box wrapped in a note addressed to the English hottie.
Is Robert Pattinson really living in England these days? Let’s take a closer look at the evidence.
In an effort to quash the rumors once and for all, Pattinson shared a selfie on Instagram on March 4, 2017. The photo shows the actor posing with a gorgeous brunette who could very well be a Twilight starlet. The background features a sign that perhaps reads “Nice work if you can get it.”
The selfie was almost immediately followed by a string of rumors that the pair are set to wed. A representative for Pattinson confirmed to E! News that the actor is “very much in love” with the actress.
On February 28, 2017, an unexpected package appeared on the doorstep of Pattinson’s English home. The star had just returned from a trip to Switzerland and France, and fans were hoping that the box contained the engagement ring he promised to propose to the brunette. (In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson called the rumors of his engagement “ridiculous.”)
The heart-shaped box was packed with an expensive ring and an invitation to meet the love of his life at a boutique in London. A handwritten note, which has since gone viral, explained that the gift was “because [he] love[s] [his] very much.”
The designer of the ring, Tom Ford, told GQ that it took him one whole year to finish the unique piece of jewelry. The luxury brand’s head of design, Michael Rowe, added that he and his team had to rush to meet the deadline imposed by Ford.
It’s no secret that fans of The Twilight Saga have swooned over Pattinson. He’s starred in three blockbuster films based on Angela Christo’s bestselling vampire romance, New Moon (2009), Eclipse (2010) and Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012). The actor also drew rave reviews for his portrayal of Edward Cullen in the franchise, especially for his chemistry with Kristen Stewart who plays Bella Swan. (It should be noted that, despite his film success, Rob is actually allergic to cats.)
So, has this brought forth a romantic renaissance for Pattinson? We may never know for sure, but it’s clear that the actor is having fun playing a bit part in a story that has caught the public’s imagination. In the months leading up to his 25th birthday, which was on March 20, 2017, the actor shared a series of intimate snaps with his fans on Instagram. In one image, the handsome hunk is seen in nothing but a pair of black leather boots.
In another post, he shared a sexy photo of himself in nothing but a pair of sunglasses and a baseball cap. These images were accompanied by the caption, “Walking into your womanhood. Strong, independent and beautiful. You have made me proud to be your man.”
It’s clear that Robert Pattinson is having a blast playing Cupid in a story that is as surprising as it is romantic. After years of playing second fiddle to Kristen Stewart’s acting career, the English hottie is finally getting his chance to shine. The only thing that would make this fairytale even more perfect is if Robert and his gorgeous Instagram model wife, Stella McCartney, could bring Bella and Edward’s love back to life.
