People often get confused and/or annoyed by the fact that there are multiple people named Robert Pattinson. The thing is, there is actually only one person and there will be only one Robert Pattinson living forever. Nevertheless, there are various celebrities named after Robert Pattinson, primarily for marketing purposes.
For example, there is the musician and songwriter best known for his collaborations with Katy Perry and Rihanna. He’s also known for portraying the character of Wash in the 2018 film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic, A Midwinter’s Tale. Additionally, there is the actor who has played the role of James Bond on multiple occasions. He’s also been in the films Mad Max: Fury Road and Spectre, and starred in the HBO series The Young Pope.
Last, but not least, there is the fashion designer whose name is also often attached to hotels, restaurants, and vacation spots. He’s been dubbed the “King of Clothes”, and his designs have been seen on the red carpet hundreds of times. Additionally, he’s designed shoes and accessories for many high-profile individuals including the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Meghan.
Since there is only one Robert Pattinson, people often get confused and/or annoyed when they see various celebs named after him. But as we’ve established above, there are actually five different celebrities named after Robert Pattinson. So which one are you talking about when you use the term “Robert Pattinson”?
The first and probably the most recognizable celebrity named after Robert Pattinson is the musician. He’s been hailed as one of the greatest songwriters and guitarists in history, and has collaborated with some of the greatest musicians of all time. Although he’s been absent from the music scene since the 2000s, his songs live on, and he’s still beloved and respected by his fans. It should come as no surprise that musicians have named their acts after him, as he’s often credited with pioneering a style called “glam rock” which became popular during the 1950s.
One such example of an act named after Robert Pattinson is the British band, Queen. They’ve released nine studio albums and have sold over 120 million albums worldwide. They’ve also won five Grammys, including Album of the Year and Best Popular Music Album. Their albums A Kind of Magic and The Game are in the Rolling Stone Album Guide’s top 100 greatest albums of all time. Every single one of their albums is now in the top 200.
Another example is the American rock band Judas Priest. Their first five albums were all multi-platinum and they’ve won five Grammys. They’re also known for their elaborate stage shows which many fans and observers feel are some of the best live performances of all time. The fact that they’ve named themselves after a notorious traitor makes it that much more exciting to see them live. One of their songs, “Living After Midnight,” was featured in the 2009 film, Tropical Storm.
The second and probably the least recognizable celebrity named after Robert Pattinson is the actor. He’s best known for starring in high-profile films, playing James Bond in several films. Additionally, he’s been in countless other films and TV shows. Although he’s not been in the film business for nearly two decades, he still draws large crowds and is highly recognizable. Even now, if you Google “Robert Pattinson,” the first image that appears is that of the actor.
For whatever reason, actors have always named their stages and theaters after themselves. So it should come as no surprise that there are various theaters, concert halls, and exhibition spaces named after the talented Mr. Pattinson. One of the most notable examples is the Royal & Broadway Theatre in London. Opened in 1993, it’s the largest theatre in Europe. If you visit the theater’s website, you’ll discover that it’s named after both Sir Anthony Hopkins and Sir Robert Pattinson. Perhaps they were hoping to gain some measure of immortality along with their professional reputations. Nevertheless, if you see either one of their movies, you’ll know exactly which one you’re looking at.
The Fashion Designer
The third and fourth celebrities named after Robert Pattinson are the fashion designer and the restaurant chain, respectively. Like the musician and actor, the fashion designer has been absent from the scene for some time. But even now, everyone knows who Hermès is, and why they’re famous. They make luxury goods such as jewelry, perfumes, and leather goods. Additionally, they’ve designed everything from bicycles to champagne bottles. And did we mention they’ve designed shoes and accessories for many high-profile individuals including the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Meghan?

Not only do they sell chocolate and other confectionery items, but they also serve as a meeting point for those interested in luxury goods. If you Google “Robert Pattinson,” the first image that appears is that of a chocolate Labradoodle (a cross between a Labrador dog and a Poodle).
The Film Producer
The fifth and final celebrity named after Robert Pattinson is the film producer. This man is responsible for bringing some of the greatest films of all time to life, including Django Unchained, Kill Bill, and The Shawshank Redemption. He’s also produced many shorts and music videos as well as the TV show House of Gucci.
