It’s no secret that Rob Pattinson looks like a fresh young prince among men. The 25-year-old English actor is best known for playing the role of Edward Cullen in the wildly popular Twilight Saga (2012–2017), but he’s also starred in several other major films and even landed on the covers of famous magazines like Vogue and GQ.
The handsome hunk has been at the forefront of fashion since his teens. From breaking into showbusiness to landing on the cover of countless magazines, Rob hasn’t wasted any time proving that he’s a true fashion icon. In fact, many fashion-related articles focus on how much his wardrobe has changed over the years.
However, the young bachelor’s impeccable style doesn’t come without a price. While Rob’s been busy jetting around the globe in the name of fashion, he’s also been saddled with several rumored romantic relationships involving high-profile women. It seems that, for some, dating the heartthrob is more of a chore than a dream come true.
If you’re looking for a partner for life, perhaps it’s time to find a nice girl and settle down? Fortunately, there are still plenty of fish in the sea; many women are willing to dive in and take a chance on a man who’s so willing to please them.
Well, how old is Rob Pattinson? We’ll let him tell you himself. In the following interview, the handsome hunk opens up about his dating history, his fashion preferences, and how he feels about marriage and family.
How Old is Rob Pattinson?
When it comes to dating, Rob insists that he’s not really interested in playing the field. “I’ve been really fortunate in my life; I’ve been able to travel a lot and work hard, and I’ve been able to meet a lot of nice people,” he tells us. “But I don’t really feel like I need to make a play for anyone. I’ve been in plenty of relationships in my life, and I’m perfectly happy just being single. At the end of the day, I like to keep my options open, and relationships are no different.”
According to Rob, he’s well aware of how attractive he is. “I’ve always felt like I’ve had good looks, but up until a few years ago, I didn’t think too much about it. I don’t like to show off, but I guess I do have something to show off. I’m not sure if it’s my smile or my body, but I’ve always felt like I’ve had good looks. Now that I’m older, I realize how important it is to feel comfortable in your own skin, and I feel like I can finally break out of my shell a bit.”
Can You Still Be Traditional And Happy?
Many of Rob’s fans might be tempted to label him as Mr. Independent, but the British actor sees things differently. “I think it’s important to be traditional once you’re married. Everyone gets married in the end, so I think it’s important to find someone you trust and respect, and then build a life with them,” he says. “I’m not really one for relationships and commitments, I guess. I don’t know if that’s because I’ve never really felt the need for them or if it’s just who I am.”
The traditional approach certainly works for Rob. After all, he’s been dating British model and actress Bella Swan for around a year now, and they seem to be enjoying every bit of it. “I have a really good feeling about this one,” he tells us. “I’m sure we’ll make each other happy for a very long time.”
As for finding the perfect engagement ring, Rob couldn’t resist throwing caution to the wind. Inspired by his good luck, he popped the question to Bella in front of a crowd of their friends and family. The beautiful blonde answered with a resounding “yes,” and the two were married in a romantic ceremony in October 2014.
Is Marrying Someone You Love More Important Than Being Happy?
For many of Rob’s fans, their attachment to the young actor is a combination of both. While some might see him as Mr. Independent, others see the opposite. “I think it’s important to find someone who you love and who you trust, because ultimately, that’s what matters in life,” he tells us. “From the moment we met, I knew I wanted to spend my life with her. She’s beautiful, smart, and funny, and I feel like I can talk to her about anything. We complement each other, and I think our skills and strengths make us stronger.”
Even better, Rob’s family and friends say that Bella is the perfect partner for the beautiful hunk. “Bella is amazing; she’s so down to earth and she makes him so happy,” says Rob’s goddaughter Grace. “They complement each other perfectly, and he’s so lucky to have found her.”
As for the future, Rob’s looking forward to expanding his family. “I’d like to have more children – hopefully, some day, when the time is right, we’ll be able to have more than one – but for now, Bella and I are really happy together and we enjoy being parents to our dogs Olive and Fred.”
Ultimately, we couldn’t write this article about Rob without talking about his infamous celebrity. As we mentioned, the 25-year-old has been at the center of a whirlwind romance involving several high-profile women, including American singer Rihanna. The one-time couple famously walked down the aisle in August 2013, but they’ve since been forced to make it ‘just’ a casual partnership. In the following interview, Rob opens up about their failed marriage, the rumors surrounding it, and whether or not he thinks there’s any chance of reconciliation.
Can You Give A Meaningful Answer Without Being Tricky?
The bad blood between Rihanna and Rob started when they were first spotted together in 2012. Then, in July 2013, the pair was spotted locked in an embrace at London’s Plaza Hotel. Since then, they haven’t been photographed together, but that hasn’t stopped the speculation. While some people see this as a promising sign of a blossoming romance, others think it’s just a publicity stunt.
According to Rob, things haven’t necessarily turned out the way they were planned. “We’d both been traveling for work, and when we got back to London, we were both a little exhausted,” he tells us. “I remember we were both a little bit scattered when we met up, and that’s when things just kind of happened. It was a really lovely moment, a magical feeling. We were both a little bit drunk, and things just kind of happened. I think there was a bit more than ‘just’ kissing going on, but I don’t want to be sexist and describe what happened between us. It was a very intimate moment. It was just what we needed to feel comfortable with who we are. I don’t want to be disrespectful, but it was more of a romantic date, rather than a work date, if that makes any sense.”
Well, it’s nice to hear that Rob and Rihanna still enjoy a good roll in the sheets on some level. The pair have been notoriously private, so it’s great to see them let their hair down and be a little more human. However, as for the future, Rob’s not giving any real hints as to whether or not they’ll ever be back together. “I think if anything was to happen, it would happen naturally and organically, rather than being forced or planned,” he says. “I think that would make us both really happy, and give us both a better chance of being happy in the long term. I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to work things out, but we’re definitely still friends, and we still love each other.”
