When it comes to celebrity couples, there are so many famous pairs that could be included in the discussion. However, if we had to choose just one celebrity couple to represent the modern celebrity era, it would be Robert Pattinson and Rami Malek. The Twilight actor has been dating the Salles actor for more than a year and the two have been spotted spending a lot of time together. Even more exciting is that both stars are accomplished men who have been praised for their powerful performances. It’s no wonder that so many people are curious as to how this iconic couple will fare in real life. We can finally put an end to all of the speculation with this detailed analysis.
Both Stars Are Career-focused
It’s been well-documented that both Robert Pattinson and Rami Malek have had to tackle their fair share of drama. The former gained international recognition for his role as the tragic Robin Hood in the 2012 hit film The Dark Knight Rises. Critics and audiences alike hailed the English actor’s performance, noting how he perfectly embodied the tortured hero. Few could argue that this was not an achievement. However, the accolades weren’t only for Robert. Rami Malek was also acknowledged for playing a key role in the making of The Dark Knight Rises. It’s safe to assume that both stars gained a lot from their experience working together on the epic film. Perhaps they could finally put their differences aside and focus on their common goals.
Even before The Dark Knight Rises, Robert Pattinson had established himself as a leading man to watch out for. The English actor won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Male in 2010 for his portrayal of a heroin-addicted bass player in the film Beautiful Soup. The following year, he starred in the war epic King’s Speech, which also earned him an Oscar nomination. In 2018, Pattinson landed a co-starring role on the big-budget Disney+ series The Mandalorian. The English actor has proven himself to be an invaluable asset in Hollywood, continuing to receive critical acclaim for his work.
A Match Made In Hollywood
Long before their professional careers took them to the big screen, Robert Pattinson and Rami Malek worked together on the sketch comedy series Hilarious. The two acted as a team in several sketches, with Rami playing the straight man while Robert delivered his lines with a British accent. It would appear that their comedic timing and ability to pull off their characters’ accents are still as good as ever. Hollywood really does seem to be the place where all of these amazing talents meet.
It’s quite the romantic story, this Hollywood union. After years of teasing the media with their on-and-off-screen relationship, Robert finally proposed to Rami Malek during an intimate dinner at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The proposal took place at the end of October 2018, just under a year since they started dating. According to E! News, the wedding will be an extravagant affair and the couple’s fans can expect a lot of media coverage. However, as long as they’re happy, we’re not complaining (even though we really want to!).
Powerful Performances From Behind The Mask
The thing about celebrities is that they often have to put on a mask to conceal their true identity. In the case of Robert Pattinson, the actor decided to don the mask of the villain in the movie Blackhat. The part required him to wear a ski mask most of the time and accessorize with a bandana and a leather jacket. Despite the comic-book villain outfit, people still recognized him and called out his name. It was his first feature film role and it landed him many plaudits. It also wasn’t the last time that he would put on a mask to play a villain. In 2016, Pattinson starred in the thriller LADY GAGA: A SWITCH VERSION as the twisted mastermind William Blake. The part required him to wear a mask the entire duration, so he wouldn’t have to show his face. This is one instance where the choice of mask was a good one because it enabled him to fully express his character’s emotions through his eyes, which he described as being the most difficult part of the role.
When it comes to portraying historical and legendary figures, it’s difficult to find the perfect mask for the part. Sometimes, a simple black hat will do the trick. However, in the case of Winston Churchill, it took seven different masks to fully capture the British Prime Minister’s personality. In 2018, he starred in the first part of a trilogy called The Dark Days, which began filming in September 2017. The actor has said that even now, while completing the second part, he has trouble remembering that he has to put on a mask while filming. It certainly must be a relief not to have to hide your face when playing an iconic literary character like Sherlock Holmes or Abraham Lincoln. Now, if we could just get him to remove that damn mask sometimes…
A Brave Performance As Harvey Dent
While some celebrities embrace their notoriety and opt for a life of luxury and privacy, others choose to throw their hat in the ring, challenging the system and going against the grain. One of the most notable examples of this is British actor and activist Harvey Dent. In 2019, the 56-year-old took on the role of Gotham City’s District Attorney in the DC Extended Universe, which is set to premiere on February 25, 2021. While it has been awhile since we’ve seen Harvey Dent’s handsome mug, fans of the character will recognize him immediately as this is the same man who went against the corrupt corporate elite and became Gotham’s most renowned attorney.
Even before his performance as Harvey Dent, Robert Pattinson was aware of the character’s significance. Back in 2015, he told the Irish Independent: “Harvey Dent is more than a character to me. He’s a symbol. A stand against corruption. Standing for truth and justice. I hope to explore those themes in the movie.” With the February 25 premiere of the DC Extended Universe just around the corner, we can finally see what Pattinson meant about exploring those themes, which is one reason why he has chosen to play such significant roles in the first place.
A Life In Film
Thanks to his strong work on screen, Robert Pattinson has been financially secure for the past two decades. In 2020, he took home a cool $30 million for playing a part in The Mandalorian. Prior to that, the English actor’s most recent high-profile role saw him playing the tragic and brilliant artist Vincent van Gogh in the 2019 biopic Vincent van Gogh. The film is based on the true story of the ill-fated relationships that Vincent van Gogh had with several famous women. The biopic co-stars Emily van Gogh, Robert’s aunt, who plays the film’s villainous mother, and Mark Ruffalo, who portrays the artist’s famous friend, poet and artist Paul Gaugin. It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything this ambitious from director Martin Scorsese and there’s a good chance that this is the role of a lifetime for the English actor.
As exciting as these last few years have been for Robert Pattinson, they have also posed a lot of challenges. The English actor endured a public breakup with his long-time partner and creative collaborator Alice Eve. While there have been no hard feelings between the former lovers, it was still a lot to deal with. Since then, Robert has been linked to numerous women; including Saoirse Ronan, Evangeline Lilly, Kristen Stewart and, most recently, Cara Delevingne. We will have to wait and see what the future holds for the renowned British actor.
