For those of you who have yet to hear of Robert Pattinson, you’re in for a treat. The British actor is best known for playing Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. Over the course of the past five years, he’s become one of Hollywood’s most prominent and recognizable faces. For those who love the Twilight Saga, the chance to celebrate Pattinson’s many accomplishments is certainly one worth looking forward to. Here’s a short tutorial on what to expect from the famous Robert Pattinson.

His Career

It’s no secret that the Twilight Saga has had an incredible impact on Robert Pattinson’s career. Since the first film came out in 2010, millions of fans have been unable to get enough of the handsome actor. His role as the adult and charming Edward Cullen proved to be so iconic and unforgettable that it even earned him an MTV VMA nomination. Since then, he’s starred in several other highly anticipated films, including The Water Horse, which was released this past March. And if you happen to be one of the lucky fans who managed to see that particular film in the theaters, then you know that it wasn’t just about the kissing. In that film, Pattison plays a young executive who’s competing for a job with an older and more established man (played by Hugh Laurie). During the interview, Edward flirts with the woman (played by Angelina Jolie) in an effort to secure the gig. Ultimately, the tables turn and it’s revealed that Edward has feelings for the woman. With so much focus placed on his romantic life, it’s no surprise that Pattinson has established himself as one of Hollywood’s most prominent faces. In addition to acting, he’s also pursued a music career, releasing two albums (one of which was with his band, The Rabbits) and collaborating with bands like BTS and Kodak Black.

The Influences Behind His Work

As a performer, it’s evident that Pattinson draws from his own personal experiences to create his characters. In an interview with Wonderland magazine, he revealed that he often imagines what it would be like to grow up in a world where celebrity and riches were a given. In the event of such a world, he mused, he might behave in ways that would surprise his critics and surprise himself. Indeed, much of the charm and likeability that has made Edward Cullen so appealing stems from the fact that he is not at all what you might expect from a typical Hollywood leading man. While he may be dashing, debonair, and intelligent, he’s not perfect. He’s human, and as humans go, he’s not that bad. In the words of one critic, Edward Cullen is “a perfectly imperfect character.”

How He Lives

For the majority of his career, Robert Pattinson has been relatively private. He has rarely given interviews and maintained a fairly low profile. That is, until 2017, when he opened up about his lifestyle in the most recent issue of Vogue magazine. In it, Pattinson discusses the events that led to the publication of his second autobiography, Good Boys: My Life in the Entertainment Industry. The book is an account of his wild and colorful youth spent traveling the world and engaging in all manner of dangerous escapades. It also serves as a coming-of-age story, as Pattinson shares his experiences as a young adult learning to navigate the complex world of adulthood. The interview was conducted by author and journalist Liza Braddock, and it’s clear that she did her research. Over the course of their discussion, she manages to unearth a wealth of information about the actor’s private life and his interesting career trajectory.

Romantic Life

While there have been rumors of a romance between Robert Pattinson and various celebrities (mostly women), there is no denying that he’s one of the most exciting men to be found in Hollywood. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson discussed the topic of romance, admitting that it’s something he thinks about often. “I’ve got a lot of girlfriends, but I also like to date boys, too,” he said. “I think it’s more common than we realize. If you look at my films, a lot of them are about relationships or romantic themes, so I think it’s interesting how that changes over the years. I don’t know if it’s the influence of the Twilight Saga or what, but in general, I think people are more open to that kind of thing.” When asked if there were any Hollywood stars he would like to pair up with, Pattinson named a few individuals. “I would like to do a Marilyn Monroe/ Arthur Miller kind of thing,” he said. “That would be cool.”

Family And Friends

As a performer who often travels the world for work, it’s not surprising that Robert Pattinson is extremely private when it comes to discussing his family and friends. However, as his public profile has increased and he’s gained more admirers, it seems that he’s found it easier to open up about his personal life. In various interviews, he’s spoken about his parents, brothers, and sisters. In the most recent issue of Wonderland magazine, he even shared an adorable story about his young nephew. In short, it seems that Robert Pattinson is finally finding the courage to be himself and let others in on the fun. And considering his star status and the fact that he’s such a positive, friendly individual, it’s no wonder that fans are responding well to his new found openness. In an interview with Wonderland magazine, he said, “I want people to know that I’m just a normal guy. I care about my family, and I want them to know that I’m thinking about them.” And while it’s nice to know that he’s thinking about them, it’s even nicer to know that he cares. The actor is certainly carving out a unique place in Hollywood. He’ll probably never be mistaken for Johnny Depp (whose public image is always surrounded by controversy) or Matt Damon (whom he’s sometimes been compared to), but he’s managed to carve out his own special spot in the hearts of millions. And considering how famous he is, it’s clear that millions of fans are going to be following his lead.
