Rob and Kristen’s break-up was actually a very happy ending, as they worked things out and are now happily married.
And who could blame them? After all, they are one of the most loved and respected celebrity couples around today. Their story was so romantic and filled with emotion that it became an inspiration for many couples. The question is now: what’s the next step for Rob and Kristen?
Here are some interesting trivia facts about Rob and Kristen:
They Were Both Very Talented Actors
Rob started his career at the age of four and eventually became one of the most in-demand child stars of all time. He went on to appear in many popular films and won a Golden Globe for his performance in the 2005 film, Fright Night. He played a sadistic vampire who terrorizes a group of teenagers.
Meanwhile, Kristen was acting at a very young age and appeared in several television commercials. She later found fame as a child actress and played the role of Annie in the 2007 film, The Holiday. She’s recently appeared in the Netflix original series, River running.
With great success in their own right, Rob and Kristen became a celebrity couple after filming the 2009 movie, Rabbit Hole. Since then, they’ve been a regular part of the media scene, appearing at various award shows and red carpets.
They Have A Real Passion For Fashion
While everyone else was distracted by their romance, the two maintained a very active social media presence. One of their best-known accounts is @robertpattinson, which currently has over 1.73 million followers on Twitter. It’s been reported that he spends a lot of time on the social media platforms, regularly posting multiple times a day.
It’s not just about the numbers, either. They truly seem to enjoy sharing their fashion choices with their audience online. For instance, one of their most famous Twitter posts shows Rob in a gorgeous turquoise-colored Ralph Lauren suit. It has become a bit of a tradition for them to show off their fashion choices, as many of their recent posts have been about their clothing lines or accessories. For example, in April of this year, they shared a snap showing off their new watch collection.
They Are Active In The Social Justice Movement
Another way that Rob and Kristen stand out is through their involvement in the #metoo movement. The hashtag, which stands for “me too,” was first used by survivors of sexual violence to show support for one another and to shed light on their experiences. Since then, it’s become a trending topic on social media every time there’s something exciting in the news regarding sexual violence. Both Rob and Kristen have been very vocal about their support of these types of causes and have been passionate about ensuring that their platforms are a safe place for victims of sexual abuse and violence. Some of the projects that they’ve been involved in include:
- The 2017 March for Women’s Lives, which was one of the biggest marches in history, with over 1.7 million people participating in London
- Launching the gender equality watchdog group, Not On Our Watch
- Creating the Kristen Stewart Foundation, which aims to raise awareness about sexual violence against women
- Supporting the #metoo movement, which aims to promote gender equality and sexual health
- Filming and releasing the documentary, The Rising, which examines the #metoo movement and its pioneers
- Appearing in a new public service announcement for the anti-sexual harassment organization Take Back the Workplace
- Speaking at the #metoo conference in London in October 2017 about their experiences as celebrities and as a couple
Their work in the area of sexual violence has not gone unnoticed. In fact, in November 2017, they were nominated for a World Humanitarian Award for their work in encouraging young people to speak up about sexual violence and for putting themselves forward as mentors to support other survivors.
They Want To Be Heard
While many famous couples keep a low profile, Rob and Kristen want to be able to offer their opinions on a range of topics. This is why, even though their individual platforms have millions of followers, their joint account @robertpattinson is the one that gets all the media attention. The tweet above, which was tweeted in April this year, has over 50,000 retweets and over 150,000 likes.
They regularly give interviews to the media, discussing everything from their relationship to politics and social issues. When asked about sex work and strippers sharing their limelight, Rob replied: “I don’t think it’s a problem. There’s always going to be people that are going to compare us to other celebrity couples, but we really don’t see it like that. We just focus on the positive.”
They Have A Passion For Animal Rights
While most people know Rob and Kristen as celebrities, they actually have quite a history with animals. The two have long been interested in animal welfare and have spoken out about the need to end animal testing and make sure that laboratory animals are treated with the care and attention that they deserve. Some of the causes that they’ve been passionate about include:
- Shooting Dogs for Fun and For Profit, which is a petition they’ve signed to prevent dogs and cats from being used in scientific research
- Attending the annual White House Animal Gala and meeting First Lady Michelle Obama, who is a keen dog lover
- Launching the Humane Society of the United States’ No Labs! No Toys! platform, which urges pet owners to adopt or foster shelter dogs
- Signing the Stop Puppy Die petition against puppy mills
- Creating a television show about dogs, called Puppy Love, which will air on Animal Planet in the fall of 2018
You may also know that Rob and Kristen are vegan, which stands for “no animal products allowed”, and that they love supporting sustainable brands. These are all qualities that set them apart from many other celebrity couples.
They Want To Be The Change That They See
Many famous couples get tied down by the demands of being famous. They have to put up with a lot of tabloid scrutiny and commentating about their personal lives and relationships. This can cause a lot of tension and frustration for certain famous couples. Not Rob and Kristen. The two seem to thrive on the attention and have used their fame to good purpose.
They’ve been very vocal about their desire to see change in the world. When asked about their hope for the future, Rob replied: “That we can create a better world. One where everyone is valued and respected. A place where no one is threatened because of their sexual orientation, where everyone can live their best lives and be who they are. That’s what I want for everyone.”
As well as being a talented actor and fashion influencer, Rob and Kristen have always been vocal about the subjects that matter to them. It’s clear that their fame has not gone to their heads, as they continue to shine as a spotlight on important social issues that affect so many people.
