There is no question that the past year has been a huge one for Robert Pattinson. The English actor has experienced an incredible series of events, from starring in the most recent installment of the Twilight saga, breaking up with long-time love Vanessa Paradis, to welcoming a son, Benjamin, to the world. It’s fair to say that for once, life as we know it may be about to change for the better.

The 31-year-old, who is known for his classic good looks and charming personality, has gone from strength to strength and has maintained his place as one of the most popular celebrities on the planet. This year alone, Pattinson has been nominated for two People’s Choice Awards and has racked up millions of views on YouTube with his comedic routines. It would seem that the evolution of Hollywood’s golden boy has truly begun.

Here, we take a look at some of the hottest pictures of Robert Pattinson throughout the years.

The Most Eye-Catching Photo Shoot

It’s fair to say that in the past year, Robert Pattinson has not shied away from the camera. The talented actor and comedian has consistently impressed us with his candid nature and willingness to engage with his fans. From posing for Vanity Fair’s iconic black-and-white ball gown to appearing on the cover of one of the most prestigious fashion magazines to posing half-naked for a Victoria’s Secret ad, here are some of the most stunning pictures we could find.

2018 Year In Review

The year 2018 was undoubtedly a big one for Robert Pattinson, as many of his fans would agree. The English actor broke up with long-time girlfriend and mother of his child, Vanessa Paradis, in October 2017. The two had been dating for 15 years and had two kids together, Lily-Rose, 7, and Jack, 5. After their romantic break-up, Pattinson was seen at a number of Paradis’ events, including the Met Gala. The actor proposed to his longtime companion during a walk on the beach in February 2018 and the pair were married at a private ceremony just a few months later. The union was made in heaven as the wedding party enjoyed a gorgeous wedding brunch at Le Caprice, a French restaurant in New York City. Lily-Rose and Jack attended the event alongside other family members and friends.

A Golden-Haired Angel

Perhaps the most iconic picture of Robert Pattinson this year was taken at the Golden Globes in January. The English actor stars as Don Jose, a famous silent film star, in the movie adaptation of the musical, ‘Lost Property’. The character’s signature look is a golden boyish haircut and tan. Pattinson nailed the look and although he opted for a different hair-style and tanning process, it wasn’t hard for us to picture him as Jose. Still, it would be fair to say that the Golden Globes were not just a one-time occurrence, as the actor was seen sporting the same hairstyle and tanning regimen during several other award ceremonies and parties throughout the year. It would seem that the golden boy is indeed finding his glow.

A Diamond In The Rough

While we’re on the subject of awards, it would be remiss of us not to mention the awards that Robert Pattinson has picked up throughout the year. The English actor has been nominated for two People’s Choice Awards this year, one for Favorite Movie Actor and the other for Favorite Movie — Drama. He also picked up a Saturn Award for Best Actor in a Lead Role for his performance in the movie, ‘Lost Property’. In November, the actor received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located on Hollywood Boulevard. This is the first star that Pattinson has ever received. In February, he received his very first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor for his performance as Michael Jackson in the movie, ‘The Lost Prince’. Finally, in April, the English actor was named Favorite Hollywood Male. With so many award shows coming up, it would be hard to hide under a rock if you weren’t nominated. It seems that 2018 has been a stellar year for Robert Pattinson and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Vanity Fair’s Black-And-White Ball

On the topic of award ceremonies and parties, it would be remiss of us not to mention that one of the most memorable events that Robert Pattinson hosted this year was Vanity Fair’s annual black-and-white ball. The event, held at the Wilshire Equestrian Center, was a star-studded affair that celebrated Hollywood’s leading ladies. Guests included Reese Witherspoon, Kate Winslet, Helena Bonham Carter, Camila Camileri, Saoirse Ronan, and more. It would seem that 2018 was a big year for the English actor, as he scored a major coup by convincing Vanity Fair to hold their ball in black and white. No other information is available at this point.

The Michael Jackson HALO

In the world of hair, fashion, and beauty, it would be remiss of us not to mention the Michael Jackson Hair Oracle, or the HALO project for short. The concept behind the creation is that you wear a helmet that projects a holographic image of Michael Jackson, which is superimposed over your head. The image is viewable from all angles and can be worn for various occasions, such as sleeping, eating, or showering. For those wondering, yes, Michael Jackson is the subject of the oracle and he wore the device while filming a scene for the upcoming Netflix series, ‘Leaving Neverland’. The device is fitted with a microphone, so you can listen to music while wearing it. It’s a truly magical piece of headwear and we can’t think of a better way to immortalize the King of Pop. Just kidding…we know exactly what  Michael Jackson would say about that.

A Rolling Stone Magazine Cover

In other news, not every picture of Robert Pattinson is strictly glamourous. The English actor isn’t afraid to show off an ink stain on his arm that reads ‘Rolling Stone’, which is exactly what landed him on the cover of the magazine in January. The issue features an in-depth interview with the actor as he discusses a number of topics, including his tattoos, his music collection, and more. It seems that Robert Pattinson has had an incredibly eventful year and has not looked back since. We can’t help but wonder what 2019 will bring – and we know exactly which of his many charms will make us eager to find out.
