Robert Pattinson was at first mistaken for a stuntman, because of his resemblance to a Hollywood action hero. Thanks to his on-set antics, which made him an international celebrity, people now know him for his acting and not for his resemblance to an action figure. Pattinson is most famous for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, for which he received an Academy Award for Best Actor nomination, but he is also a talented classical actor who has acted in several Shakespearean productions. He has recently been in a couple of high-profile films, but he is mostly known for his work in TV. In 2017, he starred in the American TV series Riverdale, and in the 2018 film, Dead to Rights, he played an elite cop. In February 2019, he will appear in the sequel to the 2018 film Dark Tourist, as Dr. Martin Harris. In this role, he will travel around the world, searching for his kidnapped daughter (played by Storm Reid).
So, what is Robert Pattinson’s actual career trajectory? How did he get started in the business? How long will his Hollywood career last? What are his future projects?
In order to answer these questions, it is necessary to take a look at his personal life and his on-set demeanor. We will cover everything from how he met his wife, to his fight with Kristen Stewart (Stephanie Meyers-Stewart) to his feud with Taylor Swift, to his recent work with Gucci (and others). If you want to know more about the actor, this is the story for you.
A Wild Ride In A Taxi
This story starts with a Twitter account that went viral, with the caption, “Just found out that @robertpattinson is in a taxi right now. And I want to ride shotgun.” The account belonged to @thegossipwhispers, which was followed by more than 500,000 people and had over 1.6 million views at the time of this article’s publication. @thegossipwhispers tweeted out this story with the following hashtags: #robertpattinson #taxi, which immediately went viral, gaining over 100,000 views. The account’s bio read, “From breaking news to celebrity scandals, we cover it all. So you can rest assured that you are reading the latest updates from the industry leaders in news.”
The article said that a person in the Twitter community saw a taxi in front of the Chateau Marmont and alerted the driver, who then saw the car full of passengers with cameras. At that point, the driver stopped the car and asked the paparazzi what was going on. He then called the front desk, and the LAPD was called to handle the situation. When the LAPD arrived, they found out that the people in the car were not involved in any kind of criminal activity, they just wanted to get a glimpse of Rob. Fortunately for the LAPD, the vehicle’s doors were locked, so they were unable to pursue the matter any further.
The Curious Case Of The Taxicab Driving Academy
A couple of weeks later, Hollywood gossip magazine Vanity Fair profiled Rob, and they revealed that he had started a driving academy for aspiring Hollywood stars. The academy, which was initially opened to the public, allows you to learn how to drive with Hollywood stars, such as Robert Pattinson, as instructors. For just $5,000, you can take a driving lesson with Pattinson, who will act as your instructor. You will have to pay for your own gas, insurance, and parking. However, the article said that the academy has had to close its doors, due to lack of student interest.
A Rivalry With Taylor Swift
The rivalry between Taylor Swift and Rob started a couple of years ago, when Rob played a record producer in a movie. In the film, he was supposed to produce a song for Swift, who in turn was supposed to sing it. In order to get the details right, the two actors spent hours in hair and makeup, trying to copy each other’s voices. Toward the end of the day, the director (Jay Sanders) had enough and said, “I think we nailed it. I mean, you might want to do an accent or two, but I think we got it.” Sanders then gave them a standing ovation, and the two actors shared a laugh.
The song, titled “I Know Places,” was a modest hit for Swift, selling 125,000 copies in its first week and peaking at number three on the Billboard Top 100 Song Sales chart. Although the song reached the top ten on several Billboard charts, it was never able to achieve the kind of commercial success that Swift’s previous singles had reached.
After that, neither of them ever spoke to the press. However, in April 2014, a source leaked out that Swift had written a song called “Forever and Always,” which was about her relationship with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. While this was never confirmed, it seems likely, given the timing of the song’s release and the identity of the song’s co-writer. The song’s lyricist, Jerrod Carmichael, even confirmed that he had helped Swift write the lyrics. He tweeted, “I just finished a song with @taylorswift13. It’s about love, life, & the world. This is so cool! Thanks for asking!”
His Sister’s Best Friend
In 2010, Robert attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where his sister, Kate, was performing in the concert premiere of her first play, Love, Love, Love. Afterwards, he was talking to some old friend when he realized that he had forgotten to pick up his friend’s son at the airport. He called the airline to have them send him a car, and while he was waiting for the car to pick him up, he noticed a young boy in a baseball outfit walking toward him. The little kid started following him, and when Robert turned around, he saw that it was his little sister’s friend’s son. He reached out, grabbed the kid’s hand, and told him that he was going to be taking him with him to the Vanity Fair party. The little boy seemed surprised and a little bit scared, but he said that he was going to have fun. So, they went to the party together.
He Likes To Party
Rob’s good friend and music producer, Glen Ballard, has known the actor since the mid-1990s, and he has worked with him on several projects, including the movie Tricky Business. Ballard has admitted that it is hard to believe that Rob has been in Hollywood for as long as he has, given his off-screen persona. “He likes to have fun. He likes to be with friends. He likes to go to concerts. He doesn’t really care about the paparazzi,” Ballard said in a 2016 interview with Australia’s Red Bulletin magazine. “He doesn’t seem like he’s had a boring day in his entire life. Not that I know of, anyway.”
While Rob often jokes about his lack of interest in money, he has also said that he doesn’t hate wealthy people. In fact, he has spoken highly of fellow actor and musician Tom Hanks, who he has said is “a great example of someone who did well, stayed well, and kept his integrity.”
He’s A Romantic
In 2014, Entertainment Tonight profiled Rob, and they said that he was “more comfortable in the role of a romantic lead.” The article included several quotes from interviews the actor had given, in which he had talked about his relationship with Taylor Swift. In one of these interviews, he had said, “I just want to be with someone and be happy. I don’t want to be doing this movie-star thing again.” In another, he said, “I’m just looking for love, you know? I really am. Sometimes it’s hard to find, but I keep looking, never give up.”
He Has A Bad Reputation
In a 2017 interview, Rob said that he had “heard a lot of bad stories about [him] from people who [didn’t] know [him], but [he] always believed in [his] own talent.” He also said that he had been told that he was difficult to work with, but that he didn’t see it that way. “I think a lot of people are quick to judge a book by its cover,” he said. “I mean, I don’t really care what people think about me. I’m not gonna let other people’s opinions define who I am.”
