If you’ve been paying attention to the news in the past year, you’ll know that there was some pretty amazing celebrity crushes. One of the best examples is Robert Pattinson, who had a huge crush on Twilight star Bella Swan. But while filming a video in Brazil last year, Pattinson got a chance to show off his feminine side and shared a kiss with his co-star. Now that the world knows the truth, it seems only fair to ask: How tall is Robert Pattinson? Is he really just 5 feet and 2 inches tall, as he claims to be? And who is that mystery man in the background? Let’s dive into the facts and figures to find out everything we need to know about the relationship between these two Hollywood stars.

Stats Are Back!

It’s been a while since we’ve had celebrity heightism issues, but luckily, the stats are back! Thanks to the increasing influence of social media, we can now measure a celebrity’s height directly from their profile picture. Google Search interest in \”Robert Pattinson height\” increased by 31% in the month after the Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson kiss compared to the previous month.

Who Is That Mysterious Man Behind The Throne?

As we mentioned above, the man behind the throne is not a stranger to this blog. In fact, he’s one of the most popular search topics, thanks to his resemblance to Prince Charming. Let’s take a closer look…

On the set of Snow White and the Huntsman, actress Kristen Stewart shared a memorable moment with co-star Charlize Theron. While filming a sword fight, the two women locked lips. As a result, Stewart’s face wound up on the cover of numerous tabloids across the world. While Stewart and Theron went on to become famous actresses in their own right, their onscreen kiss helped establish them as BFFs (Best Friends Forever) in real life. Since then, Theron has served as a stand-in for Stewart on numerous occasions, including when she had to cancel a show due to an eye infection. They’ve even done a lip-lock during a curtain call at the Sundance Film Festival.

Is Robert Pattinson Really Just 5’2″?

This is arguably the most important question, because it determines how tall Robert Pattinson really is. When it comes to his height, the 24-year-old British actor is most often reported to be 5 feet, 2 inches tall. In an era where most stars are growing their hair and using height-boosting stylings to make them look taller, it’s no wonder that Robert Pattinson’s height is often misstated. Here’s the deal: In 2008, while promoting his first movie, Pattinson claimed that he was 5’2″. Since then, he’s been consistently measured at that height (with the exception of a few stray measurements that happen to be 5’3″). Even when he’s not promoting a film or attending an event, he’s usually wearing a hat, sunglasses, and a scarf to cover up his neck. The reason for this hat and scarf routine? So that when he stands next to other tall people, he doesn’t appear to be towering over them. This also helps hide his height from the paparazzi, who relentlessly camp outside of his home. If you watch him closely, you’ll notice that he seems to unconsciously tilt his head backwards when speaking to someone his own height.

Why The 5’2″ Report?

This is a fair question, since it’s not like he has a complicated answer. When asked about his height in an interview last year, Pattinson stated, \”I think there’s often a mistake around here somewhere. People usually think I’m a lot taller than I actually am. It’s quite funny, because I always feel like I’m looking down on people when I’m standing next to them, so I have to say hi or goodbye with a slight wave.\” He then went on to describe how he feels like a midget next to some of the other guys he works with. While this might not be anyone’s favorite response, it is absolutely true. In the 2012 rankings, U.S. News & World Report ranked Rutgers-Camden, the university at which he studies, as the 9th best public university in the country. This is good enough for him to hold his head high above other students. Of course, being that small is also one of the things that makes him so attractive to women.
