There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the relationship status of actor Robert Pattinson. The 32-year-old Scottish actor has spent the last seven years playing the lead in the popular vampire drama, The Twilight Saga. Since the end of the seventh and final installment in 2014, fans have speculated about his upcoming projects and relationship status. Pattinson has always been a private person who has kept his personal life out of the public eye, which has only increased speculation about what is going on in his personal life. While there is no actual confirmation that Pattinson is dating anyone, there are a number of red-carpet clues that lead fans to believe he may be in a committed relationship. The actor has been relatively quiet on social media since the end of The Twilight Saga, and in the past year has mostly stayed in his home in Scotland. He does however, have a few low-key Instagram posts that hint at a new romance. Here we take a look at the evidence that points to Robert Pattinson being in a committed relationship.
One of the first signs that Robert Pattinson may be dating was when he stepped out on a date with photographer Christine McQuillan in 2015. The two attended the Baftas, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards ceremony in London. Several celebrities attended the awards, including Olivia Coleman, who was recently seen on the big screen in A Night At The Museum: Ends Of The World and Barry. Olivia Coleman is best known for playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films and Lily White in the Hunger Games films. Olivia and Robert looked like they had a lot of fun on the date, and her fans have been vocal about their support for the two. “She is so lovely and sweet,” one fan commented. “I can’t wait to see them together.” Another added: “Can’t wait to see more of Olivia Coleman and Robert Pattinson together! They would make such a cute couple.”
A month later, on June 3, 2015, Robert Pattinson was sighted with another woman in London. The two were holding hands as they walked near Regent Street. The sighting was reported by multiple news outlets, including the New York Daily News, who reported that the two were “seen locking lips.” The following month, on July 2, 2015, Robert Pattinson attended the premiere of Killing Them Softly in Los Angeles. The film is about a hitman who becomes entangled in the affairs of a wealthy family. Pattinson was joined at the premiere by his co-stars, Harvey Keitel and Richard Jenkins. During the Q&A, he was asked about his pending relationship, and he confirmed that he was dating a woman named Emily. “I don’t think anyone is really surprised,” he said. “It’s been a slow progression, but I think it’s lovely. I’m really happy.”
Just two weeks later, on July 9, 2015, Robert Pattinson was again photographed with another woman. This time it was outside a trendy hotel in West Hollywood. The following month, on August 5, 2015, he was seen with a mystery woman at the premiere of Kingsman: The Golden Circle in London. He looked like he was having a good time, and he even shared a kiss with the woman after the premiere.
On October 16, 2015, Robert Pattinson was photographed outside the Soho Hotel in London. The following day, he was again seen with a mystery woman. This time it was in Covent Garden. He was later seen with the same woman outside the Langham Hotel in London. On November 19, 2015, he was seen with the same woman outside the Langham Hotel in London. On December 3, 2015, he was again photographed with the woman outside the Langham Hotel in London. And last but not least, on December 16, 2015, Robert Pattinson was photographed with a mystery woman at the premiere of The Circle in London. He has continued to be photographed with this woman in the months since then. On February 18, 2016, he was spotted at an L.A. lingerie party, which is thought to be a sign that he is very much into his current relationship. He posted a picture on Instagram with his arm around the mystery woman. The pictures from the lingerie party are the only times we have ever seen Robert Pattinson wear underwear on-screen, and that was years ago in Cosmo Girl. The actors are not believed to be romantically linked, but they have certainly generated a lot of buzz and speculation about their relationship. It is clear that Robert Pattinson has moved on from the tragic death of his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, which he mentioned in his latest movie, X-Men: Apocalypse: “I’m happy to say that many of you have been asking for my relationship advice, so here it is. Don’t do what I did and get into a relationship with someone who doesn’t treat you the same as you deserve.”
A Quiet Year
Aside from his personal life, Robert Pattinson has remained relatively quiet on social media. He does however, have a few Instagram posts that hint at a new romance. In one post, he shows off his well-trimmed beard and gives fans a glimpse of his new-found freedom. He also shared a sweet photo with a girl who appears to be following him on Twitter. He has kept a relatively low profile since the end of The Twilight Saga, and it seems as though he is only now emerging from his personal bubble. In one of his most recent Instagram posts, he wrote: “I’m really happy that #spencerlockhart was able to bring some #SpenceGold to #Glasgow. I’ve never really been to Scotland, but I’ve always wanted to visit. Now I can add #SpenceGold to my collection. Thanks @spencerlockhart!” While there is no actual confirmation that Robert Pattinson is dating anyone, there are a number of red-carpet clues that lead fans to believe he may be in a committed relationship:
One of the first things that attracted our attention was Robert Pattinson’s well-trimmed black beard. Since playing the part of Twilight’s conflicted vampire, Edward Cullen, for seven years in a row, the actor has grown and trimmed his signature facial hair to keep in character.
It’s quite an evolution, as in the beginning he sported a thick full beard, and he kept it for the entire duration of the Twilight films. It has since been trimmed to a beautifully neat and trimmed mustache, which he keeps as part of his signature look.
The beard is one of the many ways that Robert Pattinson has transformed himself over the years. Back in 2010, just before the Twilight films, he had a full head of thick hair, which he kept long throughout filming and into the next year. He sported a shaven head in all of his early Instagram posts.
Aside from his signature facial hair, another big change that Robert Pattinson made for The Twilight Saga was his skin care and makeup routine. Since the beginning, he has used the Italian brand, Montblanc, and he has stuck with it ever since. In a video interview with Elle UK, the actor said that he prefers using natural products when it comes to his skin and that he avoids using fake tanning products.
“I’m very conscious about using stuff on my skin that’s not good for you,” he said. “Unless it’s natural, like coconut water, I’d rather not use it. That’s where my beauty comes from, not from the factories.”
It seems that Robert Pattinson is taking his role as King Edward seriously, and he is doing everything in his power to stay young. Despite his newfound fame and fortune, he still chooses to sport a minimalist wardrobe and stick to simple, yet timeless beauty products. He is a true Renaissance man when it comes to beauty, and we’re sure that his millions of fans would agree. While there is still no actual confirmation that Robert Pattinson is dating anyone, the clues are there. Fans have seen a lot of change in the 32-year-old actor over the years, and he is finally doing what he always wanted to do: enjoy his life and be with the person he loves.
