It has been a whopping ten years since the world got to see the charming and debonair Robert Pattinson on the big screen in the movie, Water for Elephants. Since then, Pattinson’s life has changed dramatically, and it’s been an interesting ride. While he hasn’t exactly led a boring life, it certainly wasn’t what we expected when he became one of the most popular male celebrities in the world. So how has Robert Pattinson’s personal life changed in the past decade? Let’s take a look.
He Hasn’t Changed Much Physically
Looking at Robert Pattinson’s current Instagram account, it’s difficult to tell that he’s now 33 years old. Apart from the fact that he’s no longer playing youthful characters, it seems that the actor has gotten quite a bit of work done over the years. His Instagram account is filled with photos of him working out, biking, and hiking. But other than that, he mostly shows off his beautiful wife, Stella McCartney, and his adorable children, Cosmo and Libby.
While it’s wonderful that he’s finally embracing fatherhood, it’s still hard to believe that it’s been ten years since we first saw him on the big screen. Looking at his Instagram account now, it’s easy to forget that he was just a young man and a complete anomaly as far as celebrity goes. Nowadays, his life seems pretty ordinary, which is, of course, a completely different story. We’re sure that Robert Pattinson will continue to keep us busy for years to come with new movies and exciting projects.
His Career Has Done Well
Back in 2007 when he first made his mark in Hollywood, Hollywood wasn’t exactly knocking down his door. In fact, it was somewhat of a struggle just to land a role. It wasn’t until about five years later, when he starred in The Twilight Saga, that his career really took off. Since then, he’s carved out a niche for himself in Hollywood and is now one of the most in-demand leading men in the industry. He has starred in memorable films like BelAmi, Paddington, The Lost City, and Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Along with having a successful acting career, he’s now also managed to carve out a niche for himself in the fashion industry. In 2018, he became the face of Balenciaga, and he’s since then graced the covers of fashionable magazines and newspapers like Vogue and W, which named him one of the “most stylish men of the year.”
It’s safe to assume that with all that success, Robert Pattinson has become one of the most well-known and highest-paid actors in the world. But despite all that money, he still chooses to live a relatively simple life. Apart from spending some time in Paris and traveling the world, he mostly spends his time with his family and his hobbies.
He’s Got A Happy, Simple Married Life
Unlike many other Hollywood celebrities, Robert Pattinson has decided to remain relatively low-maintenance when it comes to his personal life. Aside from getting a pedicure once a week and occasionally getting his nails done, he mainly keeps his nails clean and nails free of paint. According to his 2018 list of favorite outfits, short-sleeve shirts and floral print dresses are his staples.
Since he chose not to rush into marriage after Water for Elephants, his Instagram account is filled with images of him and his gorgeous wife, Stella McCartney, enjoying life together. They made their first appearance on each other’s arms in December 2009, and since then they’ve been inseparable. They’ve since then made appearances on each other’s arms in all forms of media, from magazine spreads to television commercials. They’re often referred to as “the power couple” or the “royals of the Instagram world” due to their large combined following. They even have their own makeup artist and hair designer who work with them on a regular basis.
Aside from spending time with his family and friends, Robert Pattinson’s hobbies include going on hikes, cooking, and biking. He also spends a lot of time keeping his favorite hobbies, snowboarding and skiing, alive. He was even part of the crew that rescued Eddie Redmayne, who was stranded in a Swiss ski village after a ski accident. It was a true testament to Pattinson’s grit and determination, as well as his bond with his wife, that he was willing to put his own life in danger in order to save Redmayne’s.
He’s Got A Stable Family
While we’re on the subject of friends, let’s not forget about Robert Pattinson’s family. The actor has always been extremely private about his personal life in the past, but that didn’t stop his family from sharing some memorable stories about him. A month after the release of Water for Elephants, he received an unexpected visit from his father, who had never shown much interest in his career. The two had a heart-to-heart talk, and it seems that that was the beginning of a beautiful father-son relationship. Since then, Robert Pattinson’s family has become an integral part of his life. They’ve opened up to the media about their close relationship and how proud they are of him. Not only does it show that he’s maturing as a person, but it also proves that he’s surrounded by people that love and support him.
He’s The Darling Of The Instagram World
Apart from his acting career, Robert Pattinson’s other successful venture has been designing cosmetic products. In 2015, he and his team at Eclectic Laboratories released a range of face cream products under the name SPF 50+. The product was inspired by McCartney’s favorite flower, the daisy, and named after her. The range is now sold in over 20 countries around the world, including Japan and South Korea. The success of the range led to a wider range of products, including an anti-wrinkle serum and blackhead extractions, and increased sales of the brand to over £100 million per year.
In September 2018, it was announced that Lancôme would be taking over the marketing and distribution of SPF 50+. As with any big change, there will inevitably be some products that stop working. For those who are still experiencing the benefits, it’s worth questioning why you haven’t changed brand yet.
He’s Still A Rebel At Heart
While we’re on the subject of marketing, it’s important to remember that not all of the news is good. Like many other celebrities, Robert Pattinson has suffered from his fair share of bad press in the past. Back in 2011, he was allegedly involved in a road rage incident that left a man dead. Following the incident, he spent a couple of weeks inside a London prison before his arraignment. He was released on bail, but it was an unusually high bail considering the nature of the alleged crime. He became a pariah in the eyes of the media, and it wasn’t until 2015 that he was able to fully restore his public image. One of the reasons for his rehabilitation was due to the character he played in the movie, BelAmi, which was a role that forced him to confront his privilege and show empathy. His role as Bruce Dickinson in Game Of Thrones also helped, as did the fact that he starred in a TV adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. Since then, he’s found his way back into the good books of fans and critics alike.
All of that to say, it’s been a pretty eventful ten years since we first saw Robert Pattinson on the big screen. It’s fair to say that the past decade has been a learning experience for the English actor. While many people would settle for a comfortable life, Robert Pattinson has continued to challenge himself and seek out new adventures. It seems that even at the ripe old age of 33, he still has a rebel heart, and that’s what makes his life interesting and exciting to follow.
