Why Is Robert Pattinson Popular?
Pattinson’s popularity can be attributed to a variety of factors. Some people may see him as a good-looking young actor. Others may admire his work as a filmmaker, since he directed and produced his first feature film, The Rover, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The film also played at the BFI London Film Festival, the American Film Festival, and the Dublin Film Festival. A Dog’s Purpose, his most recent movie, was released in December 2018. This is the story of a dog who, after serving a number of years in prison, is determined to make amends for his crimes. The movie also stars Catherine Prescott, David Thewlis, and Frank Martin. A Dog’s Purpose was filmed entirely in Ireland.
Pattinson has also established himself as a popular musician. The musician and songwriter, Edward (also known as Eddie Perkins), shares the same last name as the actor. Edward has released three albums and has written a number of songs for which he has recorded multiple vocals. He has collaborated with other well-known musicians including Damon Albarn, Brian Eno, and Laura Mvula. He has also appeared on various music television shows including The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Last Call With Curtis Hixon, and the Dr. Doug Show.
Pattinson has also been featured in several bestselling books. Some of these include The Rover by Jonathan Ames, Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, and How to Make Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. These books have all been New York Times bestsellers. It seems like the actor’s popularity is boundless!
New Projects And Matching Wedding Bands
Since starring as a vampire in The Twilight Saga, Pattinson has maintained a busy schedule. He’s starred in a number of other movies including Cosmo, Beautiful, Water For Elephants, and The Darkest Square, as well as produced and directed a feature film, The Rover. His Twilight Saga films have grossed more than $7.8 billion worldwide, setting a box office record for the most profitable series of all time. He’s also starred in a number of popular TV shows including Cosmo, the short-lived Damages, and The Tomorrow Show.
It seems like Hollywood has found its “It” boy. After nearly a decade in the public eye, Pattinson finally found the right match in the form of singer Emily Warren (better known by her stage name Emily Watts). They were married in a double wedding ceremony in the Bahamas on April 11, 2018.
The Marriage Of Robert Pattinson And Emily Watts
Pattinson finally found the love of his life when he wed Australian actress Emily Watts on April 11, 2018. The celebrity marriage made headlines around the world since the two had met a decade earlier while filming the Twilight movie New Moon. According to a close source, the couple wed at Sutherland Estate in the Bahamas. The New York Times reported that Watts wore a black crepe bodysuit with a matching veil for the wedding. The wedding ceremony was reportedly performed by an EA Sports licensed in-house priest. After the ceremony, the newlyweds enjoyed an elaborate reception that featured cake walks, wedding cakes, and pianos played by Pattinson and his brother, Fellow Scottish Singer William Pattinson.
The couple already has a son named Oliver (born in 2007). Emily previously told Glamour magazine, “I want to have children soon, but I don’t want to rush into it. We’re really, really happy that we’ve found the person we want to spend our lives with.” She also confessed to Vogue that she and her husband were experiencing “growing pains” as newlyweds.
The Future Of The Twilight Saga
After 10 years of dating, Stewart and Pattinson finally tied the knot in a romantic ceremony on May 26, 2014. They were together during the majority of the filming for The Twilight Saga. Since the premiere of Twilight in 2012, the film has become a major success, with nearly every single one of Pattinson’s Twilight films becoming a New York Times bestseller. The actress told ELLE magazine in 2017 that she and Pattinson had considered trying for a baby through in vitro fertilization. “But then I thought, why not just do it naturally? I love being a parent, and the idea of having another child filled me with joy.” She also told the magazine that she would like to continue starring in films. While Stewart has expressed an desire to start a family, Pattinson has said he has no immediate plans to have children. In an interview with CNET, he said, “I think there are still a lot of things that we want to do together as a couple. We’ve been really lucky. It’s such a beautiful thing to have found each other. I don’t really know what the future holds, but we’re really, really happy with where we are.”
A Multi-Talented Artist
Aside from being an actor and musician, Pattinson is also a bestselling cookbook author and director of three Hollywood feature films. He has also produced and directed award-winning short films. In addition to acting, producing, and directing, he’s also sung onscreen. Most notably, he sang the parts of Elton John, John Lennon, and David Bowie in The Greatest Showman. This was the musical adaptation of The Hunchback of Never Fair Winds that was released in December 2018.
