While Hollywood goes through a seemingly never-ending string of scandals, some of its most recognizable faces remain clean. Perhaps the most notable exception is Rob Pattinson, the popular British actor best known for his work in the Twilight films. His latest film, Deepwater Horizon, marks his American coming-of-age story, which he co-wrote and produced, and opens later this year.

Rob’s Scandal-free Career

While Hollywood may be rife with sexual scandals and workplace misconduct allegations, the spotlight has largely remained on the movies themselves and the people who work on them. There are countless stories of talented actors, directors, and producers who remain largely untarnished by the #MeToo movement. One of the most notable examples is actor Rob Pattinson, whose career has never been plagued by scandal. Despite being one of the most recognizable faces in the world and being constantly in the public eye, Rob has managed to remain a regular on the Hollywood scene. He is known for the strong bonds he shares with his family and has established himself as a prominent voice in British culture, especially when it comes to environmental issues. Here are some rare facts about Rob’s life and career.

He Was the Youngest Of Four Children

The eldest of four children, Robert Stewart Pattinson was born on December 4,1986, in London. Raised in a working-class family, Pattinson attended a private school and later studied drama at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. He is the product of a union between his Scottish mother, Shelly, and an English father, Stewart, who worked in the family’s building business. Rob’s brother, Charlie, is two years his senior and is an actor and DJ, and his sister, Lily, is three years his junior. When asked about how he stays fit, he said, “I think just being very selective about the work I do, trying not to overexert myself. I also love cooking, so I often use my spare time to bake. It’s a way for me to relax and unwind.”

He’s Worked With The Royal Family

It’s safe to assume that Prince Charles and his wife, Duchess Camilla, can call upon a team of people to help them with royal duties. The same goes for the Queen. Perhaps the most well-known example of the royal family’s connection to Hollywood is when the late Princess Diana met her death in a car accident in Paris in 1997. Sixteen years later, the British public is still reeling from the tragedy and the effects it had upon the country and its people. The accident brought an end to Diana’s public life, but it also left a huge void in the hearts of the people. One of the ways the British royal family seeks to remain relevant is by keeping in touch with modern culture through their various connections in Hollywood. An example of this is when they hired Rupert Murdoch, the founder of 20th Century Fox, to be a judge at their coronette wedding in 2019. The 90-year-old mogul is the father of modern mass media and is one of the most influential men in the world. In 1941, he founded the company that would become 20th Century Fox and is known for his hand in creating some of the most enduring American movie classics, such as Double Indemnity, The Man Who Knew Too Much, and Meet John Doe. In 2009, the Queen hired Murdoch to help choose the UK’s entry for the Eurovision song contest. In 2018, the Royal Family celebrated its 75 th anniversary with a tour of the United Kingdom and a visit to various royal monuments and attractions. During the tour, the Queen made a stop at the Fox Studios in London to reminisce about the many films she’s produced over the years and to meet with some of the talented people who have worked on them.

He’s Produced Several Blockbuster Films

If you ask anyone in Hollywood which is the most reliable producer in town, the answer would have to be Simon Kinberg. He has been responsible for such box-office hits as X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse, and X-Men: First Class. His credits also include the Fantastic Four franchise and Toy Story 4. Additionally, Kinberg was part of the producing team that brought you Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which won the 2016 Academy Award for Best Picture. This year alone, Kinberg is expected to produce several major Hollywood films, including the aforementioned Deepwater Horizon, which is based on the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. As an environmentalist and a member of the British Royal family, Kinberg has spoken at length about the need to protect the planet and its inhabitants. Whether or not you agree with him, it’s hard to argue that he hasn’t had an impact upon the Hollywood movie landscape. With so much attention being paid to sustainability and the environment, perhaps it’s time for Hollywood to follow suit.

He’s One Of The Most Recognizable Faces In The World

In addition to being one of the most prominent faces in the world, Rob Pattinson is also one of the most recognized. When people think of British actors, they usually think of either Sir Ian McKellen or Sir Roger Moore. However, if you Google “Rob Pattinson,” the first thing that comes up is his Wiki page. The same goes for his films. While they’ve been met with mixed reviews, most audiences know exactly who Rob is and what he’s doing. It is safe to assume that if you weren’t familiar with him before, you certainly will be now that he’s graced the silver screen.

He Supports Various Charities

Aside from being one of the most recognizable faces in the world, Rob Pattinson is also one of the most beloved. He has shown his support for numerous charities and environmental groups, including the One for the Sea campaign, which raises awareness about the impact that plastic has upon marine life and the planet. Additionally, he has spoken at length about his concern for the planet and its inhabitants. Whether or not you agree with him, it’s hard to argue that he hasn’t put his money where his mouth is. He often donates either a percentage of his earnings or the entire amount to various charities and organizations. When asked about the impact his celebrity has had on raising awareness about plastic pollution, he said, “I hope that I’ve encouraged people to become more conscious of what they’re putting out into the environment. I know that I will never be able to change the way that people think about plastic entirely, but hopefully I’ve had some impact in bringing the issue to the attention of the public.”

As you can see, even in the absence of a scandal, Rob has had an enduring reputation as a humble, kind, and hardworking individual. His life is an example of how to navigate the ever-changing world of showbiz and how to remain a well-respected and well-liked man. Whether or not you agree with him, it’s hard to argue that he hasn’t contributed something valuable to the world of entertainment.
