I suppose that one way to put it would be that Robert Pattinson was born to be a star. Well, at least he was born to be famous. His father, Peter, was a TV and film writer who died when Robert was just a baby. His mother, Jenny, followed the coffin to the grave when her first husband, David, also passed away. Aged just five, young Robert found himself in the company of some of the most famous faces in the world. He grew up in the glare of the spotlight, and his life has been everything from a fairy tale to tabloid fodder. Here, we take a look at the life and times of one of Hollywood’s most handsome men.
A Golden Childhood
It is fair to say that Robert Pattinson had a pretty charmed life growing up in Beverly Hills. His father was a famous TV and film writer who left him quite a literary legacy. Peter Pattinson’s work was widely credited with introducing a new generation of viewers to literature. It’s no wonder that Robert and his brother, Brooks, inherited their father’s gift for words. When he wasn’t working, Peter spent a lot of time with his two young sons, writing plays, short stories, and even a novel. Robert knew he was destined for greatness from an early age, and his parents’ status as celebrities only served to fuel his ambition.
After spending several years in the UK, where he attended drama school, Robert Pattinson returned to Los Angeles and made his way into the film industry. He had just turned 25 when he made his acting debut in the 2001 Guy Ritchie film, Sherlock Holmes. Since then, he has mostly starred in low-budget or independent flicks, putting his impressive young talent on display. In 2019, he will be seen in the superhero blockbuster Black Widow (Shailene Woodley, Hugh Jackman, and Kristen Wiig star), and then in the upcoming Ford v Ferrari.
A Golden Age
These days, it seems that Robert Pattinson’s life is a series of glamorous highs. He became a regular fixture on the red carpet upon his return from the UK, where he attended drama school. Since then, he has been seen at some of the biggest events and premieres, becoming a household name. While he has enjoyed considerable commercial success, the young actor has never been happier than he is right now. As long as he maintains a strong social media following (he has over 23 million followers on Instagram), he will continue to enjoy the fame and adulation that come with being a Hollywood star.
Style And Substance
Although his life is certainly colorful, it’s important to remember that behind the scenes, Robert Pattinson can be quite the serious young man. He makes no secret of the fact that he admires Alfred Kipling’s work and quotes the famous English author whenever possible. As a literary dandy, he also enjoys the novelty of randomly selecting words and mixing them together to form new sentences. Alfred Kipling’s The Rough Sewn Trousers reveals Kip’s fondness for sewing, and Robert Pattinson has been known to embrace Kipling’s love of language when speaking to the press. In fact, Kipling’s legacy lives on in the form of modern literary tours, which Robert Pattinson has been known to organize. When not acting, the 31 year old shares his love of books and poetry with visiting literary figures, who often join him on stage for impromptu poetry slams.
A Modern Classic
No list of Hollywood’s most handsome stars would be complete without mentioning Robert Pattinson. He is certainly one of the most recognizable faces of our time. Many people know him simply as KRISTEN WIIG’s fiancé, and even though they were never officially engaged, their relationship is certainly the stuff of Hollywood history. The 31-year-old actor and producer has been labeled a modern classic for his good looks, charm, and affability. While most people know him as KRISTEN WIIG’s fiancé, he has never been married to the actress. She has two children from a previous relationship, and KRISTEN WIIG and Robert Pattinson have been seen hugging and embracing one another at many of their public appearances. The blonde beauty even declared, “I will always be his wife,” when asked about her relationship with the English actor in February 2020. Although they have a legendary romance playing out on screen, it is unlikely that this will be the last we hear of Robbie Pattinson.
