There are many rumors flying around regarding the relationship between Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson and Twilight Saga star and producer, Kristen Stewart. Rumors include dating, engagement, and even plans for wedding. Now that both of their careers are taking off, it’s no surprise that the public is interested in seeing how things stand between them.
The truth behind these rumors is a bit more complicated. While Kristen is indeed Robert’s current companion, they have been dating for only a few months. The couple has known each other for about a decade and began producing their first film together, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, in 2013. Additionally, Robert has a son, who he shares with FKA TWICE singer and actress, Violet Pattinson. The pair became a professional couple in 2009 and married in 2012. Because this is such a crucial point in their relationship, let’s take a closer look at the history of Robert Pattinson and the question of whether he’s actually a child or not.
Robert Pattinson’s Early Life
Robert James Pattinson was born on July 27, 1985 in London, England. He is the son of David Pattinson and Rosie (née Burt). His father is an English photographer who specializes in photographing celebrities and royalty, while his mother is a Scottish socialite and former fashion model. As a child, he grew up in England and spent most of his time outdoors playing cricket or riding his bicycle. He also had a keen interest in music and art, participating in many school and city musicals and art exhibitions.
When he was only ten years old, his family moved to Los Angeles, California, where his father had a job offer. They settled in a $6.2 million mansion in Beverly Hills. Soon after their arrival, his parents separated and went through a nasty custody battle over Robert. In the end, his father, who has been his agent and manager ever since, won full custody. In 2005, Robert’s father married his former assistant, Polly Pattinson, whom he had met while working together.
Shortly after his parents’ divorce, Robert fell ill. He was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 12 and had to have a colectomy (surgical removal of part of the colon) at age 13. This condition left him with chronic fatigue and restricted his activity. He also had to take antibiotics to prevent infection, which he hated because he felt they made him fat.
Luckily, Robert recovered fairly quickly and had to restrict his activity even more than before. He started gaining weight, so his doctors gave him an electric wheelchair as a form of physical therapy. He then began looking into complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), which he continues to do to this day. He is also very interested in the subject and often posts about it on his social media accounts.
The Kristen and Robert Romance
The history of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s relationship is one of the most romantic stories in the entertainment industry. Their relationship was initially a secret, as they both wanted to keep it under the radar. He had just ended a five-year relationship with pop star Katy Perry, while she had recently split from Charlie Sheen.
So how did they meet? Through a mutual acquaintance, director and producer, Annie Lennox, who acted as a wedding planner for the couple. The two met in August 2012 at the wedding of David and Polly Pattinson, where they fell in love at first sight. They then began a romantic relationship that same month. In November 2012, they got engaged, ending months of speculation regarding their relationship.
The newly engaged couple then spent their time apart perfecting their wedding planning. They wanted a traditional ceremony with a splash of Hollywood glam, so they hired celebrity wedding planner, Annie Lennox, who had previously worked with Michael Jackson and the Duchess of Cambridge, to help them plan their big day. They also enlisted the help of celebrity makeup artist, Linda Sexton. Together, these three made sure that the bride looked absolutely stunning on her big day.
The wedding of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart was held on April 24, 2013 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The couple chose this location because it was a place they could keep their wedding a secret for a while. They wanted to have a low-key affair with only their closest family and friends. Unfortunately, the press had other ideas about the location of the wedding and began flocking there in droves.
The wedding was a gorgeous affair. Guests were treated to a glamorous display as both bride and groom walked down the aisle in a stunning, gold-rimmed dress. It started a fashion trend for the ‘gram as many people started posting about the beautiful dress on social media. After the ceremony, the happy couple danced the night away as hundreds of people showed up to witness the celebration.
The following day, the newlyweds left for their honeymoon in a private jet, which they had hired to travel to their chosen destination, the French Riviera. During their stay in the south of France, they visited many of the beautiful villas and famous landmarks in the area, including the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, which is famous for its collection of Cézanne and Picasso artworks. They also walked along the beach, held candlelit dinners and made love on their beach holidays.
Since their wedding day, the couple has been together constantly. They’ve had regular photoshoots and spent numerous romantic holidays together. Additionally, they’ve been vocal about their passion for each other on social media and recently published a cookbook together. Many fans have described their union as “perfect” and “soulmates,” while others have called it a publicity stunt. Whatever you choose to believe, the fact is that the love between these two very talented and handsome actors is genuine.
Robert Pattinson as a Child
For most of his life, Robert Pattinson was actually known as “Robert Pattinson Junior.” There isn’t any evidence that he had been given a first name before he started using “Robert” professionally. Until recently, many people didn’t realize that the English actor is in fact a child. While he has always been very open about his love for fashion and style, he has never been very talkative about his personal life. He has, however, been very active on social media, where he has more than 4.3 million followers on Instagram.
In one of his earlier Instagram posts, he reveals that he had begun using makeup at the age of 11 and quickly became obsessed with it. He then went on to study fashion at Oxford University, where he focused on textiles. After graduating, he worked at different fashion houses in London, including Burberry and Aquasorta. When he was 25, he moved to New York to begin his career in the fashion industry. He then went on to produce and direct his first film, an adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, which he also starred in.
Now aged 27, he continues to work in the fashion industry but also devotes his time to humanitarian causes. In 2014, he starred in the dystopian action thriller, Legend, which was based on the DC Comics character, The Dark Knight. The same year, he also published his first book, entitled, “Diaries.” When he is not working or studying, he enjoys going to the theater and watching films. He particularly likes Woody Allen and Roman Polanski’s work. He has recently said that he would like to work with Woody on a film project.
In January 2016, he was hospitalized for three days after falling into a serious depression. He then checked into a treatment facility and began seeing a therapist. While he was there, a representative from his management company, UTA, told reporters that he had been suffering from depression and anxiety issues for some time and had been taking medication. The rep added that they hoped that his stay in the clinic would help him to “come back to himself” and begin working again.
In 2017, he released a memoir, entitled, “Believer,” which was largely inspired by his time in treatment. He also joined the fight against climate change and donated £2 million to a charity that protects animals and the environment. Additionally, he worked with Elton John on a music video for the AIDS charity, “Red” and promoted the organization’s work in a tweet that has now been retweeted over 25,000 times.
Is Robert Pattinson Really a Child?
Based on the evidence available, it would appear that Robert Pattinson is indeed a child. Despite the fact that he has always been known as “Junior,” he had been using the first name, “Robert,” professionally since he was 25 years old. Additionally, he was born on July 27, 1985, making him a younger sibling of actress, FKA TWICE, who is three years his senior.
