If you’re reading this, I assume you’re either a fan of the Twilight series or are planning to become one. Since the books and films were immensely popular, they undoubtedly influenced many people’s everyday lives. The series sparked a craze for vampire fiction, and many fans have had their minds wrapped around this fictional concept ever since. Now that the films are over, it’s time to move on, but that doesn’t mean we have to. There are currently a number of vampires roaming the earth, and while their existence doesn’t violate the law, it certainly doesn’t follow it either. Vampires often choose to live in secrecy, and while that may be a choice, it’s usually one that they make for themselves. When vampires do emerge from their centuries-long slumber, they’re often not the blood-sucking monsters many think they are but are in fact extremely well-organized and shrewd individuals. One such vampire is Robert Pattinson. He’s currently one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood, and he’s used this status to his advantage by maintaining a very private life. Despite this, he has managed to amass an impressive roster of famous girlfriends (and maybe even boyfriends). Many of them are black, which surprised and excited a lot of people. Let’s take a closer look at the black girlfriends of some of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors.

Robert Pattinson

The actor has long been hailed for his cool demeanor and good looks. Even prior to the Twilight craze, Pattinson was a well-known face in Hollywood thanks to his role in the Water for Elephants film. He then went on to appear in huge blockbuster films like The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and Part 2 and The Tourist. In 2014, he was named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Pattinson has also maintained a very active social media presence, using sites like Twitter and Instagram to post constantly. These days, he largely uses his Instagram account to promote his clothing line, Brandy Melville, as well as his fashion-related content.

Leonardo DiCaprio

While we’re on the subject of celebrities’ boyfriends and girlfriends, let’s not forget about Leo DiCaprio. The actor-turned-director has been dubbed the King of Comedy for his sharp wits and infectious laugh. He’s currently dating model and actress Camilla Belle. Together, they’ve appeared in the films The Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby. Since these days, DiCaprio has mostly been spotted out and about with his dogs and a drink in hand. Like most of his peers, he’s also kept a very busy social media schedule. He now has more than 2.9 million followers on Instagram, and he regularly uses the platform to post both new and classic scenes from his feature films. Many of these have ended up being somewhat of a dating tool, attracting women from all over the world to their page. Most people in Hollywood are aware of DiCaprio’s celebrity girlfriends, but there are still plenty of women who don’t know much about his dark side. He’s had a lot of bad luck in the love department, losing his father at a young age and his stepfather when he was seventeen. He then went on to have an affair with another man’s wife, which caused a huge scandal in 1998.

Tom Hardy

Speaking of affairs, let’s talk about Tom Hardy. The English actor is best known for his roles in the Mummy and King Kong films, as well as the more recent The Dark Tower and Venom. Hardy also has a long and distinguished acting history, having played numerous supporting and lead roles throughout his life. He’s been married twice, first to Rebecca Barnard and then to Dani Fernandez. He’s had a pretty high-profile divorce too. When it comes to dating, Hardy has mostly been linked to women famous for their beauty. However, he’s also been known to court the ladies of Twitter. The actor has more than 720,000 followers on the platform, and he uses the site to post frequently, mainly about films and new projects. He also has a podcast called ‘Tomothy’, which he launched in 2016 and which is centered around film.

Matt Damon

Finally, we arrive at the most eligible bachelor of them all: Matt Damon. The actor, director, and producer has been married three times, the most recent being to his partner, actress and environmental activist Ms. Goodison. While most people know Damon for his roles in the Bourne films and Ocean’s Eleven, he has also been active in philanthropy, supporting many charitable organizations. He’s currently taking a break from cinema, focusing on his environmental advocacy instead. In 2011, he created the Hurricane Sandy charity collection, Dress Code, which is designed to raise funds for those affected by the superstorm. Since its inception, the line has raised more than $30 million. Much of this has gone to providing temporary housing and clothing for people who were either directly or indirectly affected by the hurricane. In 2015, Damon and Goodison were honored at the White House for their dedication to philanthropy. They were presented with the National Medal of Arts, making them the first married couple to be recognized in this way.

As you can see, Hollywood has a lot of handsome, successful men who have attracted a lot of women. Many of these women are famous in their own right, thanks to their looks or status. These men have made it easy for women to get into the dating game. Even the most unlikely of the bunch, like Leo DiCaprio, has more than 2.9 million followers on Instagram. It seems that women are most interested in getting to know the more ‘private’ side of these men, the side that few get to see. This is because the men in question usually keep their private lives quite private, as they don’t want to jeopardize their newfound celebrity status. The few who do emerge into the spotlight are often the objects of many women’s desires. While this may be exciting for the men themselves, it usually ends badly, in tears and heartache for the women concerned.

So, while the Twilight craze has undoubtedly declined, thanks to the emergence of vampirism as a phenomenon in its own right, the fans have not taken the pandora’s box of romantic opportunities that this era brought with it and put it away. Instead, they’ve adapted it to new forms of media and kept the romance alive, much to the happiness of the couples involved.
