I don’t know about you, but when I hear the name “Robert Pattinson”, a fair few facts come to mind. He was born and raised in London, England, which hasn’t been rocked by romance over the past few years. He’s had a love affair with Hollywood since the beginning of his career, and it mostly seems to have worked out well since. Here are the most important facts about him.


Robert Pattinson was born on December 25, 1986 in London, England, to an artist mother and a biologist father. He has a younger sister called Sophia Grace, born in 1995. He later moved to Australia with his family when he was 10 years old. Two years later, he returned to England to complete his schooling. He has also lived in Spain and Mexico. In 2008, he began working on his music career, which mostly turned out to be demos and solo projects. Two years later, he released his debut solo album, entitled “Heartbreak Hotel”. It was a great success, spawning six top five singles on the UK Albums Chart, and was recognized as one of the albums of the year.

Romantic History

Although he’s been in a relationship with FKA Twigs since 2012, it wasn’t until 2014 that Robert Pattinson began dating internationally renowned supermodel and actress Kristen Stewart. The two began an intense romance that was briefly exposed to the public when they vacationed in Italy in the summer of 2014. They kept their relationship under wraps, and Pattinson even went on a date with a mystery woman in New York in the fall of 2014. In early 2015, their relationship was officially confirmed to be real when they held a low-key wedding ceremony in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The reception was attended by a number of celebrity guests, including Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, and Alicia Vikander. Since their wedding, the couple haven’t really been seen in public together, which is odd considering their busy schedules. In 2018, Stewart confirmed that they were expecting their first child together. Unfortunately, in early April 2019, it was reported that Stewart had suffered a miscarriage.


Since becoming a full-time actor in 2008, Robert Pattinson has appeared in a number of films and TV series, both in the UK and internationally. His filmography includes supporting roles in the Harry Potter series, Water for Elephants, and the upcoming King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. His TV work includes appearances in American Horror Story, Bates Motel, and the upcoming Penny Dreadful. He also created and starred in the short-lived MTV show Skins. The role won him a Best Actor nomination at the 2014 British Academy Scotland Awards. In addition to acting, Pattinson has also hosted the Edinburgh International Film Festival. He also recorded several solo acoustic albums, including 2017’s Breathing Out, which was mostly made up of covers. He has also worked with a number of famous artists on collaborative projects, including Kanye West, Frank Ocean, and Pharrell Williams. On October 27, 2018, it was revealed that Pattinson had been working on a new solo album, tentatively titled “Remembrance”. Aside from music, he has also launched a clothing line with fellow fashion student Stella McCartney. Named after the former Beatle, the line is inspired by Pattinson’s love of Western dressing and his admiration for McCartney’s designs.


Robert Pattinson was born with dark hair and brown eyes, so it seems fitting that his nickname is “Ace”. He has become known for his good looks, mostly due to his strong resemblance to Christian Louboutin’s muse, Bianca Jagger. Since 2014, he has been wearing a scarf around his neck to cover up a scar on his neck that he received during his time as a patient in a hospital. The injury occurred when he was 19 years old. In 2017, he told Harper’s Bazaar: “I got bullied a lot when I was growing up, so I keep my scars to remind myself that I’m not invincible. It’s part of who I am now.”

As for his fashion style, Ace tends to wear a lot of black. When he does wear other colors, they’re mostly grays or browns. He doesn’t really like to match too many colors, and he doesn’t like to wear traditional men’s suits, opting instead for tailored clothing. He has also been known to wear jewelry by Miu Miu, as well as Christian Louboutin and Yves Saint Laurent. In general, he is a very classic look. When he travels for work, he usually chooses business casual attire, which he describes as “smart-casual”. He has also been seen in couture outfits, for example, black tie events and royal weddings. He is most famous for his work in fashion, but he also has a very successful acting career.
