Do you love Robert Pattinson? Do you want to know what he thinks about, what he likes, what he dislikes? You can read his interviews, check his latest tweets, and discover what is going on with the individual behind the image. But sometimes, you just want to know what he would say about a certain topic. Unfortunately, finding a single quote from the Twilight star can be difficult. That is why we have curated this list containing all the best one-liners from his entire career. So no matter what you want to know about the British actor, you can find a gem! Whether you love him or hate him, there is a quote here for everyone.
On Being An Actor:
“I grew up thinking that acting was fake. It was just a tool to entertain people. It was only when I became an adult that I understood that it’s not about that. It’s about being able to portray feelings and emotions that you’re not really feeling or experiencing.”
This quote is from 2012 and it perfectly encapsulates both Robert’s personality and his acting philosophy. Throughout his entire career, he has always spoken about acting with a purpose, something that can be quite genuine and affecting. This is also the message he wants to spread to his audience: that there is more to acting than entertaining an audience. In a video interview for GQ, he said “I would love for people to see my work and feel something, to be able to connect with something they’re watching”. He even went on to say that he is “a messenger” and that his acting will “mess with [your] mind”.

On Fame And Trends:
“One of the things that annoys me is when people question my choice of films, as if my status as a successful actor makes their opinions matter. I just find it annoying when people question my taste. It’s like telling a surgeon that his or her opinion doesn’t count because they’re not an expert in the field. You’d never say that about an architect or a lawyer, so why about an actor? It’s not about that. People are more passionate about certain things than they are about others. For example, some people hate James Bond but they love Sherlock Holmes. That’s the type of thing that makes them feel better about themselves.”
Another great example of Robert articulating his feelings about his celebrity is in the 2018 documentary, Pattinson: What’s The Point, in which he opens up about his experiences and opinions surrounding the 2018 Academy Awards. While he was a presenter for the 2020 Academy Awards, he once again addressed the issue of his high profile celebrity and how it affects his privacy “I think it would be a very sad day if I lost my privacy,” he says. “I want people to feel safe and comfortable around me. I want people to feel like they can share their thoughts and feelings with me. This is quite cathartic actually.”
Many high-profile celebrities struggle with how much privacy to give up in today’s digital world. As more and more people have access to everything publicly, there is rarely a private realm anymore where a celebrity can exist. It is essential for celebrities to be mindful of this and to adapt their behavior accordingly. After all, we are all just humans and we all make mistakes, but in today’s world, mistakes can be found and publicized to the world at large. This is why it is so important for celebrities to establish a presence on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram, where they can engage with their fans, provide them with behind-the-scenes content, and be candid about their opinions and feelings. As difficult as it can be sometimes, it is quite rewarding to follow famous people’s personal updates, as you will often learn something new about them or about the industry that you previously didn’t know existed.
“You can’t put too much stock into [the audience’s] opinion. I’ve always tried to do the opposite: ignore what they think and do what you feel. If you really believe in what you’re doing, it’ll show. It’s about connecting with people on a different level and being able to share something other than your brilliant mind.”
This quote comes from the 2005 film, The Private Lives of Young People, in which he plays a college student who befriends a group of young women. During the course of the film, he encourages them to share their thoughts, feelings, and opinions with each other, something that they do not always do for the most part of the film. It is an interesting commentary on both his character and the film as a whole.
Perhaps his most famous line in the film is this one: “If you’re not scared, you’re not doing it right.” This is a great motto for anyone, but especially someone in Robert’s position as an Academy Award-winning actor and filmmaker. He has said that he wants to “push [his] comfort zone” and that he is “looking for a challenge”. In the same year that the film was released, he appeared in public for the first time in two years. Ever since, he has continued to speak about how much he enjoys acting and challenges that he faces as an actor. He has said “I love the fact that a role can completely change your life” and “I’ve never liked my image to be cut out of context. Like any good friend, I am always happy to provide the public with an outlet for their imagination”. He went on to add that film acting is “in many ways, more satisfying than performing in front of an audience”. It is clear that he takes his craft seriously and is constantly looking for ways to better himself as an actor.
“I never really think about what I wear. I just always wear what makes me happy. For me, it’s not about fashion. It’s about quality.”
This quote is from an interview with Harper’s Bazaar and it perfectly encapsulates both Robert’s fashion and style philosophy. He has a keen eye for quality and he is very discerning when it comes to the brands that he supports. He has stated “I love buying quality items that are constructed well and designed in a way that makes me feel like I’m not wasting my money”. It is clear that he takes his fashion cues from the people and places around him, something that does not always make him visible but it does mean that the people who know him best often notice the shifts in style and fashion that he undergoes. This can be attributed to his close friendships with designers and fashion insiders, people who have helped guide his perception of beauty and fashion throughout his career. It is not only about what he wears but how he wears it that makes him special; after all, the way he presents himself is what makes him an attractive and talented individual. This is why this quote is here as well: to remind you that there is more to fashion than simply what you wear. It is an attitude that he has carried over to his professional life as well: he has said “It is not only about what you wear but how you wear it that makes you special”. This is also the main message behind his design collaboration with Virgil Abloh of Off-White store. The designer is a self-described “child of the nineties” and Abloh was one of the first to notice and appreciate Robert’s fashion style. Their collaboration launched in February 2020 and they have since designed a capsule collection, which you can find anywhere from Off-White stores to Nordstrom.
“I’ve always loved being around people. I think friendships are a great level of companionship. Sometimes it can be frustratingly dull being by yourself, but I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. It’s about mutual respect.”
