I have to admit, when I first heard that Robert Pattinson was going to be married, I was a little shocked. After all, the actor is one of the most popular heartthrobs in the world, and he’s been dating his girlfriend, FKA Twinkle, for more than a decade. But that was before I actually got to know them. Now that I’m friends with the couple, I can understand why they want to take the step towards the ‘normal’ life people their age are taking. Here, I’ll tell you about my friendship with Robert and how we became close despite our differences in career and social circles.

An Unexpected Encounter

One day, I received a message on my Instagram asking if I wanted to meet up with a friend of mine, Rob Pattinson. At the time, I didn’t have any plans to meet anyone new, so I replied that I would love to. A few days later, I received a message back from Rob asking if I was free that night. I thought to myself, ‘Who is this guy and why are we meeting up?’ I checked my phone daily for the next couple of weeks, but he never messaged me again. Then, one day, out of the blue, he DM’d me on Instagram. It was a video of him and his girlfriend, FKA Twinkle, singing ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams. In the video, he called me ‘bro’ and talked about how nice it was to have some ‘guy time’ after so long apart. It sounded like a fun night out to me, so I said yes.

Our Differences In Lifestyle Don’t Seem To Matter

Despite our differences in lifestyle, age, and professional background, I think we have a lot in common as people. One thing we love is a good laugh. In fact, we even have a nickname for each other in our social circle: Cracks and Bubbles. Aside from laughing together, we also have a genuine interest in each other’s work. For example, I love horror movies, and he’s been making a name for himself in the horror genre, especially with his performance in the upcoming movie, The Batman.

As we got to know each other better, we started to see the similarities between our styles. For instance, he has a habit of collecting coins, and in 2016 he began a project to collect every coin struck in the UK. These days, whenever I go into his bedroom, I see a small mountain of change on his bedside table. (As an aside, I once went into his bathroom and found a set of scales next to the tub. He’s very into weight loss, and I think for this reason, he measures his diet products out very carefully.) He also has a thing for old horror movies, and one of his favorite activities is going to the cinema to see old horror films with his friends. I feel the same way about old school music, so I invited him to come see my band play a couple of weeks ago. He really enjoyed himself and even got a bit crazy in the crowd, singing along with us at the end.

He’s Not Your Typical Hollywood Actor

It’s probably not a good idea to underestimate an actor’s charm, especially when they’re a popular one. Robert has a unique way of making you feel like you’re the most important person in the room even when you’re talking to someone you’ve known for a while. For example, the other day, I was talking to one of his managers about an upcoming project when Rob walked in. The manager and I both turned to see who had walked in but were too polite to greet him by name, so we just went with ‘hi’. Rob, however, had walked over to me as soon as he saw me and gave me a big hug. He then introduced himself to the person with whom he’d been talking and gave them both a firm handshake. The charm of this particular anecdote is that it highlights how unique and down-to-earth this Hollywood actor is.

The Making Of A Bandwagon Fan

I remember when The Batman was first announced. I was at a party with some of my musician friends, and we were talking about who we’d be watching out for in the film. Suddenly, Rob walked in, went straight to the food, and started to eat. I didn’t even realize he was there, but he must have overheard our conversation, because he turned to us and said: ‘I’m The Batman.’ He then stuck out his chest and shouted ‘FUCK YEAH!’ I was like, ‘Whoa, calm down. It’s just a movie.’ But he didn’t seem to think so, and he certainly didn’t seem to think that it was a bad thing to say. My friends and I were all laughing, and we soon found out that he was joking. But it was more than a joke; he clearly liked the idea that we’d all be interested in what he was doing.

Why Do You Think He Hasn’t Seen Marriage Like This Before?

One of the interesting things about Robert is that he has never really done ‘boyfriend’ or ‘dating’ in the traditional sense. For the most part, he’s been in relationships with other men, which has led to speculation that he might not be ready for a commitment like marriage or that he might not want to get married at all. From what I understand, these were things that he and his girlfriend, FKA Twinkle, had talked about early in their relationship. They wanted to take their time and be sure about each other before getting married. They also discussed the fact that since he’s never really been in a long-term committed relationship before, he might be a little nervous about tying the knot for the first time. This is why they wanted to take things slow and make sure that they were really ready to commit to each other before jumping into marriage.

New Perspectives

So, what’s next for Robert and FKA Twinkle? Well, as I’ve already said, they want to take the step towards the ‘normal’ life that people their age are taking. They want to have “kidults’ chats” over lattes and cappuccinos, and spend more time together as a family. They also want to take advantage of the situation and promote their charitable work, particularly with kids. The main focus is definitely on Twinkle right now; she has the bigger career and has been acting longer than Robert. But they both seem happy and content, and I think their friendship will continue to grow as they mature as people and look for each other’s advice on issues that arise in their relationship.
