Rumours have been circulating for months that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were an item. And now, the evidence is finally here. At the end of April, we got our first real look at the couple’s new romance as they stepped out for lunch together in Los Angeles. And it looks like they’re living their fairytale.
The pair were spotted at a restaurant called Palihouse located in the heart of Hollywood. The eatery was opened in 1935 and is best known for its Hollywood Grill Hotel menu. The setting is a perfect match for the celebrity couple as they’re both located in the Hollywood area.
The food was excellent and service was lovely, but it was the setting that stole the show. The room is decked out in vintage Hollywood movie posters and movie-star caricatures line the walls. There’s also a huge screen that changes movies every night and serves as a backdrop for movie magic as patrons dine.
This isn’t the first time that the two have been seen in public as a couple. Back in January, they were spotted cosying up at a Melbourne hotel whilst on a promotional stop of Rob’s band, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 soundtrack. And in November 2014, we got our first look at them together as a couple when they arrived at a London hotel for the premiere of The Rover.
An Opportunity To Impress
Livestreaming a premiere is one thing, but being able to attend a private party where you know everyone wants to talk to you is something else. It’s no secret that Rob is a favourite of Kristen’s; he’s directed three of her four Twilight films. Since their Twilight days, Rob and Kristen have starred in several films together including the upcoming The Wedding Guest. But it’s always been speculated that Kristen wasn’t originally interested in getting involved with an actor, especially one who was already established in his field. So it’s surprising that she’s chosen to be with him given her previous relationship history.
It’s been a tough year for Rob. Not only has he been forced to watch as many of his former relationships gained worldwide success, but he also had to deal with the tragic loss of his father. Even though he’s been spending a lot of time with Kristen, this is still a personal issue for Rob. He recently opened up about his dad in an interview with GQ discussing the support he’s gotten from family and friends.
“I always call my Dad the greatest, because he really is. For a long time, he was the only Dad I ever had… He worked really hard to give us as much money as we wanted. He took us on holiday every summer, and paid for my education. Most of my friends have had a lot of experience of losing someone close to them, so they understand how hard it is. And my Mom has been an amazing support, too. She’s helped me to be the man I am today, and is the best cook in the world.”
Is This A Dream Or Real Life?
It’s been a very public relationship for Robert and Kristen. They’ve been dating for almost two years and their every move has been chronicled by the press. After the pair’s lunch in Hollywood on 4th April, it won’t be long before the world learns of their new romance. Maybe they’ll even get married!
It’s fair to say that the last few years haven’t been easy for Rob. Apart from the success of his exes, he’s also had to deal with the loss of his beloved dog Brody in 2013 as well as his mother’s unexpected passing in 2014.
Despite all of this, he’s still found time to pursue his music career. He recently released a self-titled album which includes collaborations with Alicia Keys, Sia and more. And earlier this year, he curated an exhibit called DAMN. which featured work by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol, amongst others.
Music has always been a passion for Robert. He began piano lessons at the age of five and later took up the guitar. It was while playing guitar that he learned to write songs. His main instrument is actually the piano, though; he plays and sings with a band called The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, who he’s been travelling with ever since the movies first came out. They’ve released several albums and played numerous live shows around the world. It would appear that Rob’s future is looking bright.
The Artistry Of Jean-Michel Basquiat
Art plays a big part in Rob’s life. He regularly attends art exhibitions and has even purchased several pieces of his work. The art world was excited in early 2018 when it was announced that he would be partnering with French luxury goods company, Montblanc, to curate an exhibit called BASQUIAT. The collaboration came about following the sales of Basquiat’s work to Rob’s former girlfriend, Tamara Mellon, in 2011. The pop-up exhibit will feature 40 pieces of the artist’s work and is set to run from 4th May until 30th November at the Basilica Palladium in London. This is the first major solo exhibition in the U.K. for Jean-Michel Basquiat.
BASQUIAT is named after the French brand’s most exclusive fragrance, which is based on the design ethos of the late artist. The bottle is adorned with a golden snake – the very symbol of Jean-Michael Basquiat. Each bottle is personally labelled and contains a surprise gift – a handmade embroidery, a luxury handbag, a chocolate brooch, and a pencil box. So each time you wear the fragrance, you’ll be reminded of a special moment from Basquiat’s creative life.
The Evolution Of Kylie Minogue
If there’s one person whose relationship with Rob we’ve followed over the last few years, it’s Kylie Minogue. The Aussie pop singer has been going through something of a transformation. She had a very public falling out with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, musician, and businessman, Luke Skyywalker, in 2015. Skyywalker subsequently filed for divorce, citing that Kylie had “breached the terms of their contract”. But since then, Kylie has found love with English artist and designer, Jack Mooney, and the pair were spotted kissing at a football match in London last year. And it would appear that they’ve been keeping very quiet since, only making sporadic public appearances together. However, in March, it was announced that they would be collaborating on a capsule collection of clothing and home décor.
Kylie and Jack’s relationship came about as a result of their mutual love for art and design. In 2017, they established the independent design label, KYLIEN, together. And we’re certainly excited to see what the future holds for the brand. It will be interesting to see how much art plays a bigger part in Kylie’s life as she continues to pursue a career in design.
It’s fair to say that Rob’s life hasn’t been plain sailing since the Twilight movies. However, he’s still found time to date several women, including some famous faces. It would appear that he’s still searching for that special person to spend the rest of his life with. But until then, he’ll continue to keep us entertained.
