The man behind the @robertpattinson Instagram account is none other than Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson. The British star made a major move to Los Angeles back in 2013 and has been very active on social media ever since. Prior to transitioning into acting, he made a name for himself as a singer-songwriter, appearing on the Grammy Awards stage in 2013 alongside Lorde.

The Englishman is best known for his role as Cedric Diggory in the Divergent series as well as the highly anticipated The Twilight Saga. He also appeared in the comedy series The Great British Bake Off. In January 2021, he’ll be seen in the upcoming fantasy adventure film Valerium, directed by Daniel Espinosa and based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Jack McDevitt. He was previously slated to play the title role in the 2021 film adaptation of the popular Fighting Fantasy game, but had to drop out of the role due to scheduling conflicts (as he’s currently filming on location in Italy).

The versatile talent has been active on social media since the very beginning. Besides his @robertpattinson account, he has an @officialrobertpattinson handle that he used to keep fans up to date on the status of his album. In 2018, he made headlines when he revealed that he owns an enormous collection of vintage guitars and plans to one day record an album of covers.

The Accidental Instagrammer

The @robertpattinson Instagram account was launched on May 21, 2015, and quickly amassed a following of over 2 million people. The account was initially used to document the everyday life of the 30-year-old actor, featuring images of him skateboarding, touring the U.S. with Ed Sheeran, and posing for the camera with his guitar. But the public was soon to learn that the Englishman was much more than just your average Instagram user. Before long, his account was flooded with images of classic Hollywood cars, lavish mansions, and beautiful women.

The account is now managed by Pattinson’s personal assistant, who often posts on his behalf. The Englishman has also been known to curate and choose which of his photos to post based on the content of the day. For example, if he’s promoting a specific movie, production company, or album, only those images will be featured on the page.

The Instagrammers have also played a large part in the success of the @robertpattinson account. Many of the images feature the unique retro feel that the platform is known for, and it is this uniqueness that has helped the account grow a loyal audience. The photos also tend to be of high quality, with many of the images being shot by renowned photographers such as Glen Peters and Nick Knight. There are also a number of incredible behind-the-scenes images that have not been publicly available until now, thanks to the dedicated followers of @robertpattinson.

A Multi-Platinum Career

The Englishman’s career is one of the most decorated in contemporary Hollywood, boasting a number of awards wins and nominations throughout his impressive four-year run. The self-titled album by his music group, the Twilight Saga: Eclipse – The Album, was released in August 2012 and went on to become one of the best-selling albums of the year. The album spawned two hit singles: “Walking Down the Stairs” and “Blackbird,” which reached No. 1 and 3 on the Billboard Top 100, respectively. The group also won a 2012 Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, alongside Mark Ronson, Bruno Mars, and Mika.

Eclipse is only one of a number of successful projects that Pattinson has been attached to over the years. He’s currently on set for the highly anticipated sequel, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Shadows of Love and will appear in the upcoming action film Valerium alongside Hollywood heavyweights such as Jason Statham and Jackie Chan. The British actor also lends his voice to the upcoming animated fantasy film, The Art of War, produced alongside DreamWorks Studios and Red Ventures and set for worldwide release in the summer of 2021.

An Enormous Vinyl Collection

Besides acting, music, and social media, the Englishman is also a huge fan of classic rock and roll and often posts photos of himself with his vast collection of vintage guitars. In early 2020, he finally revealed the full extent of his collections to the world, showing off an incredible array of vintage guitars that span over 40 years of his career. Many of the guitars were custom-made by luthier Jason Knipe, who also plays guitar in the Englishman’s band, the Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The collection also includes a number of custom-made acoustic guitars that the actor has played throughout his career. Some of the other prominent guitarists he’s collaborated with include Joe Bonamassa, Slash, Joe Perry, and Jeff Beck. Many of the guitars are also displayed in amazing array of colors, having been custom-painted by artists such as Tim Curry and Dave Davies. The collection is so big that there’s even a dedicated room in his house just for his guitars. In addition to his guitar collection, Pattinson has also curated an entire room in his mansion filled with records, many of which are signed and sealed by the artists themselves.

The prolific English actor has played a number of memorable characters throughout his career, from brooding anti-heroes to comedic relief. He’s most recently starred in Gucci’s most recent campaign, photographed by Glen Peters, and will soon be seen opposite Anne Hathaway in the movie, The King’s Blade. In April 2021, he’ll be seen in the movie Vendetta alongside Al Pacino and John Cazale.

The versatile talent has also lent his voice to a number of projects, including the popular Fighting Fantasy video game series, in which he plays the role of the dauntless adventurer, Robert Pattinson. He was previously attached to the role of Cedric Diggory in the 2021 film adaptation of the popular series, but had to drop out of the role due to prior commitments to Valerium. Other film projects that he’s been attached to include The King’s Blade, alongside Al Pacino and John Cazale; the animated fantasy series, The Art of War; and the biopic, The Game, about sports agent Don King. He was also slated to play Mark Henry in the forthcoming Lord of the Rings film adaptation, but pulled out of the project due to scheduling conflicts (he was previously attached to play the lead role in Gucci’s most recent campaign, photographed by Glen Peters).

Besides these gigs, the Englishman is also frequently seen at music festivals and events, often appearing alongside his musician wife, Stella, who he met while filming the indie film, On the Road. The two wed in a romantic ceremony in January 2020 and have since been busy planning their wedding parties and playing together as a duo. The couple’s music can be found on their joint Twitter account, @celestebalmer, which they use to post about their adventures as a married couple. The Englishman has also been known to work with a number of famous designers, including JOVANI, who he has dressed for multiple occasions, most notably for the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards, where he won the award for Best Male Video with “Roses.”

A Beautiful Woman And A Beloved Partner

The Englishman has been very open about his struggle with addiction and self-image issues during the early years of his career. A number of his most compelling and relatable moments come from his personal blog, published between 2010 and 2012. In one of his earliest entries, he shared his excitement about starting his music career and discussed how difficult it was being a fresh-faced new boy in Hollywood, surrounded by older and more established stars.

“I found it really hard to be seen as anything other than a kid,” he wrote. “I’d be climbing out of my car after a recording session and someone would ask me what I was doing there, when I was 28. I didn’t feel like I belonged. It wasn’t just that I looked young, I felt young, so even if I tried to play into it, it never really felt right.”

He also wrote about battling anorexia during this time and how music helped him to get through it. “Music was a way of filling the loneliness,” he wrote. “It was my security blanket. Listening to music helped take me away from my problems. I could escape into another world for a little while.”

The blog also delved into his personal life, sharing intimate stories about his family and home life. In one entry, he discussed how hard it was to grow up in an international family, feeling like a fish out of water in any given environment.
