Just a few short months ago, nobody knew who Rob Pattinson was. Now, the 24-year-old British heartthrob is undeniably one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. Having risen to fame as the rebellious teen in the Twilight films, the hunky actor has since starred in several prominent films and amassed a considerable social media following. Now, he’s found true love with fashion designer Bella Hadid, and the two are set to wed. What changes will this bring to the heartthrob’s life and career?
More Famous And Influential Than Ever
For decades, young men (and some young women) have swooned over the handsome looks of famous male stars, waiting breathlessly for their big break in life as an actor. It wasn’t until relatively recently that this dream became a reality for a large number of people, with the advent of online platforms like Twitter and Instagram.
This is one area that Rob Pattinson has significantly benefited from, gaining over 6 million followers on Instagram alone. The 24-year-old is already well-known for being one of the most followed people on the platform, followed by American fashion designer and actress Grace Coddington and musician Charlie Puth. The social media mavens aren’t the only ones who’ve noticed, with Forbes reporting that Rob has become one of the most influential young men in Hollywood. He’s so influential that since the beginning of the year, he’s been named on the covers of at least three prestigious magazines.
It wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows for Rob on the social media front, however. The actor has kept a fairly low profile since his split from long-time girlfriend and model Jessica Chastain. Rumors circulated that the two had called it quits, with Chastain stating that they had “mutually agreed” to call time on their relationship. Despite this, the model didn’t wish bad luck on their relationship, stating that she still cared about Rob.
While Chastain may have cared, apparently not enough to keep the spark in their relationship. Rob’s been keeping busy, however, and has been spotted with a number of high profile women. Most notably, he was photographed with socialite and actress Bella Hadid in December.
It was this photograph that eventually led to their engagement. The A-list power couple had been dating for several months prior to their announcement, with Hadid even starring in a number of the 24-year-old’s films, most recently, The Young and the Restless.
Bella Hadid is best known for being the beautiful daughter of prominent fashion designer and Republican Party bigwig Bernie Hadid. The 24-year-old has long been considered one of the most eligible bachelorettes in Hollywood. She’s graced the covers of several high profile magazines, including Vogue, becoming an in-demand style icon. Her Instagram and Twitter accounts are flooded with gorgeous selfies and fashion images, making her one of the most engaging personalities in the celebrity sphere. What’s more is she’s fluent in French and Italian, boasting a taste for luxury goods that she imparts to her audience.
Rob Pattinson has benefited enormously from his newfound fame, with multiple blockbuster movie offers already on the table. He’s had the opportunity to show off his acting chops in major films like Love, Simon and The Magnificent Seven, the latter of which he also wrote and directed. The British heartthrob is also rumored to have had a hand in designing some of the outfits for Victoria’s Secret, which naturally lends his style a prominent feature in the fashion world. If he continues to keep busy on the big screen, he could become one of the most famous and influential young men in Hollywood.
Will this newfound status impact how people perceive and treat the already hugely successful actor? It’s hard to say. But one thing’s for sure: Rob’s life will never be the same.
