Robert Pattinson is one of the most beloved British actors of the 21st century. With fans across the world, it’s no wonder that he continues to be associated with high-profile films and famous couples. He is best known for his role as Edward Cullen in the popular Twilight franchise, but he has also featured in several other popular films. Having made his name in Britain, where he was born in London, England, he is now a global pop culture phenomenon. So it comes as no surprise that people are curious about his personal life and want to know more about the man behind the paparazzi-worthy image. We take a look at some of the most interesting tidbits about the actor.

He Speaks Three Languages

According to People, Robert Pattinson was born in London, England, to an Indian mother and a Scottish father. He speaks English, French, and German fluently, and he is reportedly learning Italian. He is also highly skilled at painting, having used his artistic talent to transform himself into one of Hollywood’s most interesting and versatile actors. In addition to speaking English, French, and German, he also learned Italian from a young age. That means he was able to bring his full linguistic skills to bear while shooting the romantic comedy Nightschool, starring opposite Anna Friel. In the film, he has to teach her English, so he can communicate with her son, who is also a teacher in Germany. According to the movie’s script, “It’s highly unlikely that Anna will ever learn a new language, but as a global culture ambassador, she might have to in the future. In this case, Rob and Anna will have to develop a system where she can communicate with her son in German, and he can help her with her English.” In another scene, he utters gibberish in German, which was reportedly a joke based on his character’s accent in the film.

He Was In A Relationship With Katherine Brewster

While dating and eventually marrying his now-wife, Jennifer Meyer, Robert Pattinson was in a relationship with American heiress Katherine Elizabeth Brewster. They began dating in 2007 and were engaged until 2012, when they called it quits. Since then, he has been single and remains well-loved among his fans for his candid responses to fan questions on Twitter. He is also well-known for making generous contributions to various charities, including one that provides housing for veterans with cancer. People reports that he has donated around £200,000 ($293,400) to the Chariot Campaign, which aims to improve access to treatment for people living with cancer. In 2018, he donated a record-breaking $500,000 to various causes, including the British Heart Foundation, the Comic Relief charity, and the One Planet Research Fund.

He Is A Member Of The Wise Men Society

According to GQ, Robert Pattinson is a member of the London-based society of the same name, which was founded in 1876 and serves as “the world’s preeminent gentlemen’s club.” The magazine reports that the actor is often seen wearing the Society’s signature embroidered waistcoat, shawl-collar shirt, and striped trousers in public. The fashion publication also credits him with “kickstarting” a fashion trend, as members adopted his look and are now widely seen wearing it. In addition to being a member of the Society, he is also reportedly a member of the UK Film Council and the President’s Council of the RIBA. He also serves as an advisor to the British Artistic Office on international marketing and sales strategies.
