Actor Robert Pattinson is set to wed his long-term girlfriend FKA Twigs on Saturday, June 9th in a lavish Paris ceremony. The actor, who is best known for his role in the Twilight franchise, will become the husband of one of the music world’s most fascinating ensembles. We take a look back at some of the funniest pictures of the actor.
The actor was first introduced to the public at the age of 21 in the hugely popular 2008 movie Twilight. In the film, Pattinson plays the part of Edward Cullen, a young man who falls deeply in love with Bella (played by Emily Blunt). It’s fair to say that the film launched his acting career with a bang, and it remains one of the most popular movies of all time, having recently surpassed the $400 million mark at the box office.
