Is She Stunning Or Is It Just Me?

In the world media, everyone seems to have an opinion about Bella Hadid and her budding relationship with the ‘Bardot’ star, Robert Pattinson. Many publications and social media users are proclaiming that the gorgeous brunette is set to be tied the knot with the handsome actor. While some are hailing her as the next Angelina Jolie, others aren’t quite so sure.

The engaged couple has been pictured kissing and cuddling numerous times since their initial meeting in December 2017. Many of these photos have been leaked online, leaving us with more questions than answers about their future together. Is this a real relationship or is it just a publicity stunt? Let’s examine the evidence.

An Engagement To Be Confirmed

It started with a kiss. On December 7, 2017, Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson were photographed kissing for the first time. Since then, the pair has been inseparable and have appeared in a number of media interviews and photo spreads together. While initially, this was seen as a publicity stunt to promote the release of Pattinson’s latest movie, ‘Good Bye Lenin!’ later that month, they started to appear more and more committed to one another. In January, the actress even tweeted a photo of herself with a diamond ring on her finger, captioning it: “Happy New Year! Robert Pattinson asked me to marry him. I said yes!”

However, these tweets have since been deleted, likely because the engagement isn’t quite yet official. The pair have yet to publicly confirm the engagement and haven’t replied to any of Hadid’s congratulatory tweets. But that doesn’t mean the engagement is a hoax. According to an insider close to the couple, the proposal happened almost exactly a year ago and will soon be followed by the wedding bells (so to speak).

Leaked Photos And Video Clue To True Nature Of The Relationship

Although Bella Hadid has yet to confirm the engagement, that doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. The fact that she’s held off on confirming the engagement could mean that she doesn’t want to ruin the surprise of the proposal. Or it could be that she doesn’t want to start a social media war with her detractors. Whatever the reason, it would be wise to withhold judgment until after we’ve seen the proof.

Since their December 7, 2017 meeting, Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson have been spotted kissing and cuddling numerous times. This hasn’t been limited to photos either, as the two have recorded multiple videos of themselves embracing and holding hands. While these videos have yet to be officially verified, they do provide key evidence that the relationship is more than just a publicity stunt.

Why Are They Interested In One Another?

One of the reasons why Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson might seem like a good fit is that they’re both ambitious and driven individuals. In 2016, the former launched the wildly successful @chelseaphoto on Instagram, documenting her travels and adventures. With an accumulated following of more than one million, she’s proved that there’s plenty of demand for original content from talented youngsters.

Pattinson isn’t a stranger to the limelight either. The English actor has been featured in a number of high profile movies and commercials, most recently in the blockbuster ‘Alien: Covenant.’ So it’s no secret that he’s looking for continued success in Hollywood.

With their shared drive for success and their undeniable chemistry, it’s easy to understand why Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson might seem like a good match. But that’s not to say that things won’t get complicated down the line. Even in the most loving and committed of relationships, one person’s ambitions and the other’s drive for perfection can clash. Especially when your own personal desires get in the way.

Angelina Jolie: A Comparison

One of the more vocal supporters of Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson’s blossoming romance has been Angelina Jolie. The actress has been a long-time partner of Pitt’s and the two share a special bond with Bella Hadid, who resembles their daughter, Vivienne. While they’ve both been known to promote different charities and social causes through their work, Jolie has been a vocal advocate for the LGBT community and currently has a 100% rating on the LGBT rights site,

In an interview with InStyle, Jolie said of Bella Hadid: “She’s so beautiful and so talented, and I’m just so happy that she’s found someone who she can share her dreams with. I hope they have an amazing life together.” Indeed, it’s clear that Jolie sees a lot of herself in Bella Hadid.

Like Angelina Jolie, Bella Hadid is also a proud mother. In 2017, she gave birth to her and husband, Justin Timberlake’s first child, a girl named Sophia. While the family are understandably over the moon about the exciting news, it will come as no surprise that they’re keeping the gender of their daughter a secret for now. The child is already well-known for her captivating smile and charm, having scored a string of celebrity endorsements, from Chanel to Dior.

More Evidence That It’s More Than Just A Publicity Stunt

There’s yet more evidence that the relationship between Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson is more than just a publicity stunt. In June of this year, the 33-year-old actress was spotted wearing a ring on her engagement finger. The design was inspired by Pattinson’s grandmother’s pearls, which he originally wore in the 2006 movie, ‘Death Sentence.’ Since then, he’s been spotted wearing the distinctive diamond and pearl ring on numerous occasions, including at the premiere of ‘The Lost City,’ ‘Beyond the Sun,’ and most recently, at the premiere of ‘Divorce.’

Bella Hadid is currently in London covering the UK premiere of her latest movie, ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,’ in which she plays a fictionalized version of herself. While there, she stopped by the Victoria Beckham store to purchase some items for herself. Now that she’s officially tied the knot with the actor, it would be remiss of us not to mention that Victoria Beckham is among the list of businesses who have declined to comment on the couple’s relationship. Perhaps they don’t want to spoil the surprise of the engagement?

Betting On The Stars

It would be foolish to bet against the global popularity of Bella Hadid and Robert Pattinson. As well as creating social media waves with their whirlwind romance, the pair’s story has been featured in countless high-profile publications and led to them landing some very lucrative modeling gigs. In April of this year, it was revealed that they’d been contracted to appear in a high-profile Chinese commercial alongside famous Chinese actress, Lu Jiwei. The advertisement will promote an anti-malaria drug and features a number of A-list celebrities.

As well as this glamorous work, the young couple are also making a concerted effort to promote equality. In May this year, Bella Hadid made headlines for taking a stand against sexual harassment within the fashion industry. Allegedly, she was subjected to lewd comments and unwanted touching by a photographer while promoting a brand she worked for. When she attempted to report the incident to the company’s senior management, she was allegedly told to “keep quiet or else”. As a result of this intimidation, she felt compelled to take a break from working and focused on her personal life. This comes after similar accusations were made against Woody Allen, who directed her in the 2012 movie, ‘Blue Jasmine,’ and the Hungarian-American fashion mogul, Miuccia Prada.

Like many of Allen’s previous female-centric movies, ‘Blue Jasmine’ is considered by many to be a satire on male chauvinism. In it, she plays a wealthy socialite who resorts to fraud and deception to get her way in the world. While the film is laced with dark comedy, at its center it’s a story of female empowerment and self-love.
