The two movie stars have a lot in common. They are both British (with Scottish ancestry), and they both rose to fame in their early 20s. They’ve both been married. They’ve both had children. They’ve both been romantically linked to high-profile women. But there are some key differences between the two. Here’s a closer look at the differences between Robert Pattinson and Cosmo.
There are some noticeable differences between the two men. First, there’s the hair. Robert has mostly brown hair while Cosmo has strawberry blonde hair. Also, Robert is slightly shorter and stockier than his friend. Finally, Robert wears glasses while Cosmo doesn’t.
One of the major differences between the two is in regards to their finances. While Robert has a fairly high-profile, wealthy family, Cosmo grew up in poverty, and he struggled for several years before breaking into films. He has spoken openly about the fact that he has never really been on great terms with his family because of this, and even though they’ve gotten over it, he still feels the weight of their disapproval. Robert also co-owns the luxury hotel The Cove with his wife, and their joint income is said to be in the millions. On the other hand, Cosmo is supported financially by his agent, who often helps negotiate his deals. His last reported salary was £25,000 per episode for three Twilight films (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse).
Another significant difference between the two is in regards to their personal backgrounds. While Robert comes from a wealthy, upper-class family, he grew up in an orphanage. He then spent several years working as an au pair, and later attended Oxford University, where he majored in economics. He has said in the past that he is not particularly close to his family, and even though he was hurt by his father’s critical comments about movies he was starring in, he chose to focus on the positive side of growing up in such an environment. On the other hand, Cosmo grew up in an affluent home in Scotland with a happy childhood. His parents were both journalists, and he has two older siblings, with whom he shares a close bond. He attended the Edinburgh College of Art and then dropped out of art school to pursue a career in music. He later became interested in acting, and took classes at the Old St. Mary’s College in Glasgow. He has also said that he feels very blessed to have been raised in such a family and in such a city, and that he wouldn’t change any of it.
Their careers also differ. While Robert quickly established himself as a major movie star, Cosmo had to work hard to make it as a leading man. He first gained recognition for his work in music, which included several high-profile appearances at music festivals around Europe. In recent years, he has mostly stuck to leading roles in film and television. Robert has had a busy, successful career, appearing in major films like the Batman series and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He’s also voiced a character in the Madagascar series, and has had successful guest appearances on The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory. Cosmo’s career has mostly been focused on smaller projects, with supporting roles in major films like the aforementioned Twilight films and the Harry Potter series. He’s also had some success as a songwriter, with two songs (“Hey Jealousy” and “Never Say Never”) reaching the Top 40 in the UK. Robert has been married twice, and is the father of four children. He and his family live in London. Cosmo has been married once, and is the father of a daughter. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
Overall, with the exception of their personal backgrounds, the two men have a lot in common. They’re both Scottish, they both rose to fame in their early 20s, and they’ve both been married and had children (Robert twice, and Cosmo once). They’ve both been linked to high-profile women (Pattinson to Kristen Stewart and Taylor Swift. Cosmo to Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss). Both men have felt the pressure of their famous relationships (and perceived failures at relationships). Yet, there are some key differences between Robert Pattinson and Cosmo that make the two men, in many ways, complete opposites. One of the biggest differences is in regards to their finances. While Robert has a high-income producer father, who has been good to him, Cosmo grew up in poverty. He later became a struggling actor who made his money on the side, selling sketches, paintings, and eventually, sex toys and lingerie. He has spoken about his insecurities and doubts in regards to his financial security, and has said that he feels blessed that his agent has been able to help him find work, but that he still hasn’t been able to shake the poverty mentality he developed as a child. This is just one of the many differences between these two fascinating, Hollywood celebrities. Which do you think is the real Robert Pattinson?
