Robert Pattinson may be one of the most recognizable faces in the world today. Aside from his acting career, which includes roles in the Twilight Saga and the upcoming Batman movie, he is also the boyfriend of luxury goods brand, Burberry’s, Meghan, Duchess of Cambridge.
Since his introduction to the public eye in 2006, the 26-year-old actor has gone on to become one of the most sought-after men in Hollywood. In fact, according to People, Pattinson was one of the Top 10 Most Dazzling Men In Hollywood in 2018.
Pattinson is currently in Australia filming the movie, The Death of Dick Turpin, in which he plays the titular character, the famous English rogue, who was imprisoned in New South Wales for 16 years before being executed in 1808. Set in the early days of colonisation, the film explores how the fledgling country coped with the harsh realities of the new world, and whether or not they will rise to the challenge.
While we wait for Pattinson’s return to the silver screen, it is well worth exploring how to meet and greet him when he does. Being the globally renowned A-lister that he is, there will be plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of him, so let’s take a look at how to meet and greet Robert Pattinson on his recent Australian tour.
When Is He Visiting?
According to the actor’s publicist, Kelly Cheeseman, Pattinson will be in Australia from the 19th of June to the 2nd of July 2020. During this time, he will be appearing on the Broadway stage in Sydney in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz, which has been adapted for the big-screen with Jessica Chastain playing the lead role. This will be Chastain’s first time on a Broadway stage and she is certainly making the most of it. Chastain plays Christine Lavins, a smart, strong and independent woman who dares to challenge the orthodoxy of her day and sets out on a journey with Dorothy, a reporter for the Kansas City Star, to bring Oz back to life.
Apart from starring in one of the most iconic films of all time, Lloyd Webber’s version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which is widely regarded as one of the greatest Broadway musicals ever, Pattinson will also be appearing in a production of Cheeseman’s other favorite show, Black Sash. Directed by John Tiffany, the musical follows the travails of an aspiring young black American woman, Daisy Harris, living in New York in the early 1900s. Playing the title role, Pattinson will be portraying Daisy’s father, a prominent Chicago lawyer, who reluctantly allows his daughter to leave the state to fulfill her dream of becoming an opera singer. The production is set for a strictly limited run from the 21st of June to the 2nd of July.
Where Can I See Him?
While in Sydney, you can catch a glimpse of Pattinson at various events and venues. On the big-ticket item front, the couple will be holding a private lunch party for close friends and family on the 28th of June at the Sofitel Hotel, where they are registered guests. According to reports, guests will include Joanna Kruszewski from HBO’s Game of Thrones and Dexter Fletcher from the Netflix show, My Wonderful Big Fat Greek Wedding.
If you are lucky enough to be among the thousands of people who have managed to secure an invitation to the star’s private lunch, then you will have the opportunity to meet and greet him. He might even decide to take a break from autographing and chatting with his fans to speak with you for a few minutes.
How Should I Greet Him?
According to Vanity Fair, Robert Pattinson does not like to be rushed into having his picture taken, so you will have to resort to your best luck in finding an opportunity to catch his attention and engage him in conversation. For the best chance of a photo-op, you should head to a place where he is known to chill out and enjoy himself, such as a bar or a café. While waiting for the photographer to arrive and shoot the couple’s classic “wedding pose,” you can engage the star in small talk about his upcoming projects and the latest news stories.
If you really want to go all out, then you can do so by including a small gift in your arsenal. In the event that you manage to pull off a legendary photograph with Robert Pattinson, then this will surely be the ticket to brag about. According to The Wedding Diaries, the couple typically enjoys receiving gifts on their wedding day, so you can throw a small present in with the photo to see if he will smile or at least give you a nod.
What Should I Say?
While it is always an honor to meet such a celebrated person, it is not easy to formulate the perfect speech for the occasion. Essentially, you are standing in front of a celebrity, so be mindful of what you say and how you say it. As a general rule of thumb, you should probably opt for a question-and-answer session with the audience, rather than a lengthy monologue. This will undoubtedly be a talking point among your acquaintances for years to come. While you are at it, go ahead and ask him about his views on marriage, family, and the meaning of life.
Since he is well-known for his aversion to publicity stunts, you should not expect to catch him signing autographs or taking pictures for the media. However, you can always resort to social media to get an up-close-and-personal glimpse of the actor. On Instagram, he has over 500 million followers and on Twitter, he has over 200 million followers. You can also find his latest tweets near the top of the page on both platforms.
If you see anything interesting, then feel free to engage the couple, or even the star himself, in conversation. You can even follow him on the platform where he regularly posts pictures of himself and his girlfriend, which is undoubtedly somewhere you will not want to miss.
Although some fans have speculated that Robert Pattinson and Meghan, Duchess of Cambridge, could even be engaged, this has not yet been confirmed by the palace. Even if it turns out to be true, however, the wedding date has yet to be set.
