One of the most famous faces in the world today is Rob Pattinson. Since his debut movie “Damsels in Distress” in 2011, the 26-year-old Scottish actor has been featured in numerous Hollywood productions. In fact, he’s been so popular that he even landed a role on the big screen in the upcoming “Water for Elephants.” So it’s no wonder that Hollywood is already anticipating his next big screen appearance as the new Sherlock Holmes.
Pattinson made the cover of Elle Magazine back in 2012, and he’s been in the headlines ever since. Despite his newfound fame, he’s still managed to keep some of his personality. In an interview with CNN, he talked about what it’s like to be a celebrity and how he manages to stay grounded despite his crazy schedule.
How Is His Personal Life Different From The Image He Projects In Public?
From the moment he arrived in Tinseltown to his most recent visit to London for the film premiere of “The Lost City,” Pattinson has made headlines for the right reasons. The handsome actor is currently dating actress Kristen Stewart, and they’ve been seen around town enjoying each other’s company since 2012. He also has another child with his ex-fiance, American actress Rose McFall.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2014, Pattinson opened up about his private life, revealing that he doesn’t quite feel like himself when he’s acting. “I try not to let it interfere with my life, but it’s hard not to be affected by it,” he said. “It’s a strange kind of fame. Like, you can be doing your day-to-day life and then all of a sudden you’ll cross the street and people will recognize you.”
How Is He As A Public Figure Determined To Remain Distinct From His Private Life?
To avoid any scandals that might harm his acting career, Pattinson has chosen to remain private about his personal life. Despite his best efforts, though, he can’t avoid all the attention that comes with his celebrity. When he was spotted shopping for lingerie last year, photos of the actor in a bikini spread like wildfire through social media. This led to calls from fans urging Pattinson to get back together with Stewart. Unfortunately, the two haven’t confirmed any public appearances or shared any kisses since 2012.
For his part, Pattinson has remained committed to keeping his personal life private. In 2015, he spoke out against the paparazzi and expressed his desire to keep his private life out of the tabloids. “I want to keep my personal life as personal as it can be,” he said. “I don’t want any of my personal business being splashed all over the place. It’s a really upsetting thing when your private life is dissected and torn apart by journalists.”
So far, the actor has managed to stay out of the tabloids and retain his private life, but this doesn’t mean that all of his personal issues stay private. In 2017, he opened up about his struggle with addiction, claiming that he’s been clean for two years. “I’ve started something that maybe will last a lifetime, and it’s not a habit,” he told GQ. “It’s a disease, really. I have it in my blood. I get it from my family. Maybe it’s something that’s passed down through the generations. But I’ve never felt better in my entire life.”
Pattinson might be determined to keep his personal life private, but this doesn’t mean that everything about him is a mystery. He’s been open about some of his favorite movies and books, and these are the subjects he comes back to time and time again in interviews. In the same GQ interview, he spoke about the literary influences that helped shape his character and personality. “I think that some of my best friends are writers, so it’s pretty easy for me to sit down and talk about books with them,” he said. “They can give me advice on what to read next or what influenced them creatively as writers. It’s a great source of inspiration for me.”
Does He Have A Team Of Personal Assistants To Help Him Navigate Public Life?
According to People, Pattinson relies on a team of personal assistants to help manage his hectic schedule. While he might not always have time to reply to every fan letter that comes his way, he does make time for the people who matter most to him. He’s also managed to stay committed to maintaining a social media presence, even as the lines between his private and professional life become blurred. Even his personal assistants can’t keep up with all of his appearances, and this is why he sometimes turns to a professional photographer to take his latest Instagram photo. He might not always have time to take care of all the little details that come with his fame, but he makes sure that he sees the people he cares about.
Pattinson’s busy schedule means that he sometimes has to put his own interests first. In 2014, he told Rolling Stone that he sometimes feels as if he’s “selling out,” revealing that he doesn’t always want to be a movie star. “I’ve had offers from almost every major country in the world to be in their national productions, but I’ve always turned them down,” he said. “I want to stay in America. I love it here.”
While his schedule might be packed, Pattinson makes sure to find time for the things he cares about. In 2015, he told The Guardian that he spends his free time “reading, walking my dogs, hanging out with my family, and trying to stay afloat in the world of malevolent Twitter trolls.” He also makes sure to honor his Hollywood idols by watching their films and buying their merchandise whenever he can.
Despite his busy schedule, Pattinson still finds time to be a good sport. When he was just a teenager, he made a Twitter account and used it to talk to strangers and meet new friends. He continued this trend when he became famous, meeting fans of all ages on social media while also following celebrities and filmmakers on Twitter.
It’s clear that Rob Pattinson wants to keep his personal life as private as possible, but this doesn’t mean that he wants to disappear from social media. Instead, he wants to use his social media accounts to give his opinion on various topics and to remain in contact with his fans. He also wants to show the world the best of himself and let his fans decide if he’s changed for the better or the worse since leaving school. So far, he’s succeeding — it’s just a matter of time before he becomes tabloid news.
