Since getting married in 2014, Robert Pattinson has seemingly distanced himself from the movie world, sticking to his hobby – walking his dogs – and keeping a low profile. But that’s not the case, as the actor is now seen spending time with a new lady in town – an extremely fashionable blonde who happens to be the sister of a friend of his.
Pattinson was previously linked to the likes of Alicia Silverlinn, 24, and Kate Bosworth, 29, but it seems the actor’s taste has shifted to a younger, more Instagrammable demographic.
Here, we’ll explore the surprising new woman in RPatz’s life, as revealed by a source close to the actor:
The Surprising New Woman In RPattz’s Life
Nowadays, Robert Pattinson walks a greyhound as a profession and a hobby, according to sources. The dogs provide comfortable companionship, and the actor reportedly takes pride in training them as a guide for the visually impaired. As part of his routine, the “Bel Ami” star walks the dogs twice a day, around 3 pm and 7 pm. He also takes them on overnight trips to nearby towns for fishing competitions, where he is pitted against other anglers in a battle of wits.
While in the past, Pattinson was reportedly drawn to older, more established women, dating actresses like Kate Winslet or Angelina Jolie, his interest now appears to be targeting a more youthful demographic. The source reveals that the actor, who has starred in blockbusters like “Water for Elephants” and “Twilight,” has recently been spotted hanging out with a “fabulously blonde” girl who is 24 years his junior.
The source adds that this is not the first time that Pattinson has settled down with a younger woman. Back in 2012, he was linked to Australian model and comedienne Celeste Kane, who was 22 years his junior. The pair were photographed together at L.A. Live, and rumours about their relationship spread like wildfire. But it was later debunked when it was revealed that they were just good friends.
The “Fabulously Blonde” Girl In RPattz’s Life
The new “fabulously blonde” girl in Robert Pattinson’s life is Sophia Také, age 24, the daughter of Také Ichirō, a noted entrepreneur and co-founder of the Gucci Group. He built a business empire and is the current Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Kering, a French luxury goods company. In 2013, he founded the luxury goods label “Ikirò” with his wife, designer Georgina Chapman; the two were previously married to British businessman Neil Cheffers.
Sophia began her career as a banker at HSBC and later moved to UBS, where she handled corporate finance for a number of top London-based retailers.
Sophia met Pattinson back in 2011, when she was 21 years old and he was 35. The two were introduced by mutual friends and, after an initial courtship, they tied the knot in a private ceremony in Venice in 2014. While the pair kept their wedding a low key affair and avoided the press, they did share some truly memorable moments on social media, with Pattinson tweeting about his “fabulously blonde” bride and Instagramming photos of them celebrating their marriage. Since then, they have been photographed on numerous occasions, often with Sophia’s dogs Millie and Marlow.
Why Is The “Fabulously Blonde” Girl In RPattz’s Life A Surprise?
There are a few reasons why the “fabulously blonde” girl in Robert Pattinson’s life is a surprise. For one thing, considering the actor’s previous romances, it would not be the first time that he has shown an interest in younger women. But perhaps more importantly, Sophia is the sister of fashion photographer Lance Oliver, who has collaborated with the actor on several occasions. More recently, the two were photographed together at a fashion event in Paris, France, wearing matching orange T-shirts, further solidifying their bond. It is possible that Sophia and Robert have forged a close bond through their shared interest in fashion – something that definitely appeals to the 47-year-old actor.
One of the things that makes the Sophia-Robert romance so interesting is that, while he has been linked to a diverse range of women in the past (including some A-list celebs), he has generally shied away from dating younger women. Aside from the Sophia link, we can assume that this is because he doesn’t want to be perceived as “settling” for less. But with younger women, even infatuations can turn into long-term romances – consider how his affair with model Jacy Williams turned into a stable union, after all – so perhaps this is just a part of a changing attitude from the actor.
Whatever the case, it is clear that Robert Pattinson has some big news to share with his fans. And considering his history of keeping secrets, perhaps he has also decided to share this new development with his spouse as well. Perhaps we will soon see more outings from the star, as he continues to walk his dogs and spends time with his new “fabulously blonde” wife. Or, perhaps he has finally found peace in his life and is ready to be more open with the world.
