There is no one-stop-shop for all your favorite actor’s quotes and images, so here is a roundup of the best of the best from the illustrious Robert Pattinson.
‘I Could Do This All Day, Every Day’
The ‘Twilight’ actor and co-founder of the luxury brand Waterstone spoke to Vanity Fair about his new vegan restaurant, Sustainability, which serves organic fare, and how he approaches his craft:
“I am a firm believer in eating food that is free of animal products, and I feel that when you are eating an animal product, you are literally funding a life that you don’t want to have. It’s a bad bargain. So for me, as an actor who doesn’t want to see animals in pain, I could do this all day, every day, and be happy to do it.”
‘People Will Say What They Think You Want To Hear’
In an interview with GQ, Pattinson talks about his infamous ‘bad boy’ image:
“The way the media portrays me, it can sometimes seem like it’s all about the bad boy image. But I think it’s really important to understand that, as an actor, I can play a lot of different characters and show a lot of different sides to my work. And, as a person, well, I don’t like to think of myself as being in the public eye that much. It feels like a scary place to be.”
“I don’t like being in the public eye. The last thing I want to be is the center of attention. That’s not something I’m comfortable with. People will say what they think you want to hear. They’ll twist your words around and paint you into a box that you didn’t intend to be in. But at the same time, I don’t want to be seen as the bad boy either.”
‘I’m Very Realistic About My Own Life’
In a 2016 interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson opens up about his romantic history, focusing on his ex-girlfriend, FKA Twinkle, with whom he shares a 16-year-old daughter, Lydia:
“I dated [FKA Twinkle] for about three years. Then, for another year and a half, I was with [current girlfriend] Emma [Roberts]. It was a very real and raw experience dating these women because I didn’t have the luxury of hiding behind a character. And I don’t want to hide from my experiences either.”
After talking with his daughters about what it means to be a dad, he revealed:
“I think the best thing a father can do for their children is to be real. Embrace your weaknesses, be honest about what you want, and be there for them in every way possible. Because in the end, it’s the only thing they’ll have growing up.”
‘I Feel Like A Kid In A Sweeper Cup’
In 2015, while promoting ‘The Rover’, Pattinson jokingly told Elle UK that he wished he could “hide in plain sight” in his new film:
“I just love watching movies where people don’t notice me. I feel like a kid in a sweeper cup.”
A year later, speaking with Total Film about taking on such a large-scale project, he was more serious:
“I know how kids feel when they see an actor in a film. They expect the actor to be there for them, and I want to give them that feeling. So, in the world of ‘The Rover’, I want children to feel protected and cared for, even if the person acting isn’t physically there.”
As for whether or not he will take on more films, he is realistic about his ability to take on such a large role and feels deeply grateful to Twentieth Century Fox for even considering him for the part.
‘I Think People Imagine Me As This Raging Bull’
In 2017, Pattinson spoke with Esquire about starring in the upcoming ‘Taxi Driver’ film and whether or not he sees himself in the role of Travis Bickle:
“I think people imagine me as this raging bull that comes along and just sort of rides people and runs over his opposition. And I think that’s a great image, I must admit. But it’s not me at all. I don’t think of myself as a very physical person. It’s more that I just want to prove that I can play a role that isn’t the typical Hollywood leading man.”
This approach clearly isn’t for the faint of heart, and the interview quickly turned into a shouting match, but Pattinson still managed to squeeze in a few more words:
“I think it’s the perfect image for a film icon. Someone who’s been around for a while and still stands for something. I just hope that people will recognize that this is not me.”
Well, Travis, we can’t say that we know you well, but we don’t think you’re the type to just “sort of ride people” and “run over his opposition.” We think you’re more of a bulldog type, all right? And we’re pretty sure the world agrees with us.
‘I Don’t Think Many People Can Pull This Off’
Speaking with People magazine about his recent divorce from FKA Twinkle, Pattinson said: “I don’t think many people can pull this off. It’s not easy to be in a relationship with someone where you’re not really sure what their motivations are, or if they’re even capable of having a motivation.”
“And that, for me, was more than enough grounds to call it quits.”
While it is wonderful to see someone put their children’s interests ahead of their own, it is important to keep in mind that children need both parents, regardless of what role they play in their lives. As for whether or not he will remarry, he told the publication:
“There is no rush. I have plenty of time to find my own happiness, and I know my priority shouldn’t be to find a wife, or to settle down and have kids of my own. For now, I’m perfectly content living my life the way I’m living it. The way I want to live it.”
