In fact, Hollywood took notice and decided to bring him on as a producer for their films. Now that he has some valuable experience, it seems he is ready to take on a new role as a film director.
However, even though he has been acting in films for a while now, Robert Pattinson has only made a handful of these films. But more recently, he has been trying his hand at directing and it seems that this new phase of his career is going very well. In fact, his latest film, Beautiful People, just opened in theaters across the country and critics have been very kind to it. But what is it that this famous son of Hollywood has been up to behind the scenes? We will explore the career of Robert Pattinson and his various projects including Beautiful People and other exciting news about his future plans.
Robert Pattinson’s Journey So Far
If you are unfamiliar, Robert Pattinson was born in London, England and moved to Los Angeles, California at a young age. He went through several acting classes before landing a role in a film called The Lost City, which premiered in 2012. Since then, he has appeared in a number of films including the independent drama, Walking Papers, which premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival. Before Beautiful People, his last big-budgeted Hollywood film, he had only appeared in one other major release, The Lost City. In 2019, he will appear in two more films, one of which was just recently named Best Picture at the 92nd Academy Awards.
His journey has been well-documented online with fans keeping track of his every move. On the plus side, this has granted him a dedicated fan base which supports him through thick and thin. It also means he has a ready-made audience when promoting films in which he appears. In the past, this has included appearances on late-night talk shows as well as interviews in mainstream media publications. He has also collaborated with famous fashion designers and musicians.
Speaking of collaborations, it is well-known that Robert Pattinson is very friendly with the fashion world and often appears in popular blogs and forums fashion-related articles. In fact, he has even been known to collaborate with fashion designers on projects. Most recently, he collaborated with luxury goods brand, Burberry, on a capsule collection to accompany their new fragrance, Boy.
However, his acting career has always been his number one priority and he has rarely given fashion-related interviews or taken part in photo shoots. This has made him a bit of a fashion mystery and his relationships with top designers and models is what gives his projects their edge.
A Director For Days
Since graduating from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Robert Pattinson has been trying his hand at directing. He attended the London Short Film Festival, where he met his future wife, model, Cara Delevingne. Since then, they’ve been going strong and were even featured in the 2019 edition of Vogue’s prestigious Wedding Issue. But his directing career did not begin in earnest until he moved to New York City, where he attended the prestigious Film & Television Academy. He has also lived in London and Paris, France.
While at the London Short Film Festival, he directed a short film called Just For One Day. It was inspired by an Edward Gorey short story called, “The Pale Horse,” and tells the story of two rival sisters, whose relationship is strained because of a difference in their personalities. He then followed this up with another short film, entitled One Day, which was released in 2015 and followed the same theme but in a different setting. For his next project, Robert Pattinson decided to adapt the Gothic novel, The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James. It is the second part of his trilogy of adaptations of works by Henry James and tells the story of two young men, who go on vacation to stay with an uncle in a remote country manor. But, before they arrive, strange things start to happen and the ghosts from the estate’s past turn up to remind them of the danger they are in.
It is a very gothy adaptation and certainly has a more adult feel to it than his previous shorts. But it was very well-received by critics and fans and was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Short Film.
Since then, he has been busier than ever directing feature-length films, shorts, and documentary projects. The actor/director even went so far as to rent out some of New York City’s most luxurious apartments so he could be closer to the action. In fact, it was reported that he paid $16,500 a month for these rental apartments.
