Is Robert Pattinson the sexiest man alive? Is he even in the same league as Brad Pitt or Liam Neeson when it comes to sex appeal? According to the movies, he most certainly is! The latest in a long line of famous sons from Scotland, Robert was born in London in 1986 and raised in his home country before making the big move to the English capital as a child. He attended the exclusive Highgate School and then, in 2006, the University of Edinburgh, where he earned his medical degree. After completing his studies, he became a general practitioner, practicing in London and then moving to the Scottish Highlands as a locum tenens (part-time doctor).
You’d be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful person than Robert Pattinson, but it’s his acting talent that really sets him apart. With an ability to perfectly capture an emotional moment on screen, it’s no wonder actresses from Holly Willoughby to Kate Winslet have fallen for his charms. Although his breakout role came in 2009, with the coming-of-age drama Pedigree, it was 2012’s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 that put him on the map. The film became the highest-grossing of all time, with $725 million at the box office (and it wasn’t even that good). Naturally, since then, he’s appeared in several other blockbusters, earning himself a permanent spot among Hollywood’s elite.
How does Robert manage to look so perfect even when surrounded by the chaos of movie sets? As it turns out, the Twilight star follows a strict routine that he credits with keeping him looking so dashing. Between takes, he spends three hours a day on his hair and makeup, along with another two hours exercising. While we’re not about to suggest that you follow suit and start working out seven days a week just to look like Robert, it might be worth considering taking a cue from his daily routine. After all, there’s a lot to be said for putting in the same amount of effort as the guy you’re trying to follow. Consider these photos of Robert to be inspired!
There’s no question that Robert is one of the most recognizable faces in the world. With his classic good looks, warm smile, and dashing style, it’s unsurprising that fans want to know more about him. Aside from his film career, he’s taken an interest in several charitable causes, including refugee camps in Thailand and Syria, and he’s even become a UNICEF goodwill ambassador. Perhaps his most meaningful work, though, has been the establishment of the Deeyo Foundation, named after his family. The charity helps people with rare diseases and disorders find genetic matches, providing crucial medical information so that affected families can have a better understanding of what is happening.
A Carer First And Foremost
To say that Robert is a doctor by trade would be an understatement. His father, Nigel, was also a GP, and it was through his practice that Robert became interested in the field. In fact, after he graduated from medical school, he worked as a locum tenens doctor for several years before landing a job in a London hospital. While there, he worked his way up to become a senior locum tenens, or “floating doctor,” which is essentially a locum tenens role that he holds concurrently with his GP practice. According to the actor, this allows him to “still see patients and give them the best care possible, while also giving me the flexibility to shoot films.”
A busy schedule that includes acting and medical practices doesn’t leave much room for relationships, but Robert eventually met the love of his life, FKA Twigs, on the set of his film, Only Lovers Left Alive. The openly lesbian pop artist had seen him in the movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and felt compelled to send him a message on Instagram. The two began dating and, in 2018, announced their engagement. As luck would have it, the couple was engaged on the night that Robert was cast in the titular role of Mr. Bean in the upcoming Netflix adaptation. It was also around this time that he revealed that he’d been suffering from exhaustion for some time and had to take a break from his professional life. He also attributed this to overwork, stating that the schedule for The Twilight Saga: The Dark Seer, immediately following the premiere of Breaking Dawn — Part 1, was “the most gruelling schedule [he’d] ever had.” He went on to say that he wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
Now that he’s found a break from his hectic schedule, it seems like Robert has more time to spend with his family and friends. While he’s been relatively quiet on social media in the last year, he did follow Kate Middleton’s lead and shared a sweet kiss with her as she wrapped up a speech after their father, the Duke of Cambridge, opened the 2018 London Summer Fashion Week. It’s clear that Robert is committed to family and friends above all else — the evidence is right there in the photos!
A Strict Routine Makes For Impeccable Look
It’s always nice to see a celebrity have a routine, and Robert follows one that goes beyond just looking amazing. According to him, his daily routine helps him stay fit and focused on the people that he cares about. Between takes on set, he works out for two hours a day and spends three hours a day on his hair and makeup, which he credits with helping him “look as stunning as possible.” While not everyone may have the luxury of working out at a gym every day and getting their hair and makeup done professionally, following this routine may be one way to achieve the same stunning results.
There are many different ways to stay fit and healthy, and for some, following a routine may not be the best option. If you’re looking to lose weight or simply want to see changes that are more sustainable, then consider an eating plan that includes more vegetables and fruits, and less refined sugar and carbs. For those with specific dietary restrictions, such as paleo, vegan, or gluten-free diets, there are plenty of options for healthy, flavorful dishes that follow those strict guidelines.
The Ultimate Man Bag
When you’re as famous as Robert, it’s only natural that people would want to know what bag he carries to work. Well, we can certainly sympathize. We’ve all seen him on film with the trademark satchel slung over his shoulder, and we’ve been dying to know what kind of leather satchel has traveled with him throughout his professional and personal life. Thankfully, thanks to a leaked photo, we now know what to expect. It appears that Robert has found the one bag that perfectly sums up his style — the Prada briefcase. In fact, just as with all Prada products, this bag has traveled around the world with the star, having been featured in several of his films and photographed on the red carpet multiple times. It seems that no matter where he goes, this bag is definitely going to be there, as it has been featured in several of the above-mentioned movies. Although the luxury brand hasn’t made any official statement regarding its famous clientele, it’s hard to deny the connection between the two.
A Stylish Hat And Winter Weather
Another item that’s connected to Robert’s daily routine is the hat that he wears. It seems that no matter the weather conditions, the Scottish Summer is a muggy mess, so he always needs a stylish way to combat the heat. Perhaps it’s no wonder that he started wearing his signature hat, the Balmacaan, after landing the role of Mr. Bean. It seems to be made of the same material as his trousers, and it has been featured in several of his films, including the most recent adaptation of The Twilight Saga. Of course, as with all of his clothing choices, this hat has become a permanent part of his look, so it’s no wonder that fans want to know where they can get their hands on one.
A Few Last Things
It’s no secret that Robert is one of the most recognizable faces in the world, so it’s only natural that fans would want to know more about him. Aside from the routine that he follows to stay fit and looking amazing, we can certainly glean a few other tidbits of information from his Instagram account. For example, he often posts photos of a rose that he plants in the spring and then nurtures throughout the summer. The photo above, in fact, is from one of those early-morning Instagram sessions and shows a small bud that has just begun to bloom. As we’ve established, roses are one of the most emblematic and recognizable flowers of all time, so it’s clear that Robert takes pride in these little plants that he constantly gives water to. It’s also interesting to note that, although he’s a vegan, he often throws away fish that swims in his drink or food that he deems inedible, so it appears that he has some kind of distaste for animals that are farmed for consumption.
