Robert Pattinson. Most people know who he is, but how many languages does he actually speak? Let’s find out.
As we mentioned, people know who Robert Pattinson is. He’s one of the most famous British male models, with his face on display in many adverts and magazines. He’s graced the covers of FHM, NME, and Esquire among other magazines. One of the most recognized faces in the UK, not to mention Europe, if we’re not mistaken. He’s also graced the big screen in movies like Good Omens, Love, and For Greater Freedom. So, it’s safe to say that he’s become somewhat of a cultural icon in recent years.
If we’re going by his IMDB profile, we can see that he’s lived in Germany for about ten years. Which makes sense, considering he’s a naturalized German. So, he’s probably spent more time in the country than in the UK. He’s also appeared in multiple German films and TV shows. His most notable role was probably that of Philip in the popular German adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale. Based on the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, Philip was one of the protagonists, and one of the most popular characters. The series was extremely popular when it was released in Germany, and became a cult show in the country. Unfortunately, it didn’t perform well enough in the US to warrant a second season. But Philip was still a beloved character, and a conversation piece for anyone who had seen it. Especially since he was such an unlikeable character. Who would’ve thought that a German man would’ve been so delightful?
A little less known fact is that he’s lived in Paris for about eleven years. He studied there, and apparently spoke french fluently. Perhaps he even considered Parisian culture to be his own. He’s appeared in multiple films and TV shows set in the City of Lights. He’s also been pretty open about his love for the City. In fact, he even has a song dedicated to Paris.
Considering all of the above, it might come as no surprise that he’s become somewhat of a cultural fixture in France. Especially since he was often typecast as the Frenchman. Although, speaking of which…
On the other hand, he’s also appeared in several Italian films and TV shows. Not to mention that he’s dated Italian women. So, it would appear that his international appeal has been a good fit for his love life. He was most recently photographed kissing an unknown woman in Madrid. With the world at his fingertips, it’s clear that he’s not lost his desire to explore new places and new things. Plus, he’s always had a way with the ladies.
So, there you have it. As you can see, Robert Pattinson isn’t just an Englishmen with a French accent. He’s actually been all over the place, and spoken multiple languages. Which makes him that much more interesting. At least, to us. 🙂
