The bond between two icons is just too perfect for words. Nowadays, people think that being famous means being rich and respected. While money and status can certainly come with the fame, there is so much more to being famous. One aspect, that many people don’t consider, is the deep connection and friendship that develops from famous people working together. This friendship can inspire others and last a lifetime. This is the story of such an iconic friendship between Sir Robert Pattinson, the rebellious son of a Presbyterian minister, and Mahatma Gandhi, the father of Indian independence. It began over 100 years ago and has endured through thick and thin ever since. We’re going to explore how their undying friendship has impacted their lives, and the lives of others. So sit back, relax, and get ready to learn.
Robert & The Bible
You may know that Robert Pattinson is a proud member of the Anglican church. However, this didn’t begin when he was a young boy. He originally became a Christian when he was 20 years old and found solace in the Bible. This changed the course of his entire life. Before he became famous, he had already found success in the film industry. He had also attended Oxford University and studied English Literature. At the time, he had become disenchanted with the ways of the world and was looking for something deeper. Enter the Bible and the church. They answered his prayers and changed his life forever. If you’re interested in the Bible and want to learn more, the church even has a page dedicated to the topic. You can read the complete Bible here, and if you want to learn about the church, you can visit this page for more information. It’s actually amazing how far his faith in Christ has taken him, and how much his life has changed because of it.
Robert & Indian Independence
A few years after he became a Christian, Robert Pattinson met with Mahatma Gandhi. Not only did they share an interest in the Bible and Hinduism but also both attended the London School of Economics. This is where their interest in Indian independence first sparked. India as we know it today didn’t exist back then – it was actually two separate countries – Punjab and Bengal. The British controlled both of them and only gave limited autonomy to the regions. The British Empire was very interested in keeping India weak and divided. The two friends became close and talked endlessly about the injustices suffered by the people of India. Gandhi believed that the British should leave the country and allow it to develop into its true potential. On one occasion, Gandhi even said that he would march his friends – Sir Robert and his then-fiancee, Kylie Minogue – to the suicide wall to celebrate the Indian independence that they had fought for. After years of careful planning, their efforts bore fruit in August 1947 and India was finally free.
How Does This Friendship Impact Our Lives?
This friendship has had a profound impact on our lives. It’s certainly impacted our relationship with Christianity, both Roman and Anglican. Nowadays, we see Robert Pattinson as a living testimony to the ways of Christ. It’s also changed the way that we look at friendship and loyalty. Before meeting with Gandhi, Sir Robert had developed a very selfish attitude and didn’t care much for other people. His mother had passed away when he was nine years old, and he had been raised by a single mother. As a result, he didn’t value relationships highly. It wasn’t until he befriended Gandhi that he started to realize the importance of being a friend. The friendship helped change his perspective and brought forth a nearly uncontrollable desire to become a better person.

A True Renaissance Man
Nowadays, most people would consider it an achievement to be successful in multiple fields. However, back in the day, being a Renaissance man was something special. A Renaissance man was someone possessing a high degree of intellectual curiosity, technical proficiency, and professionalism in various fields. As a child, Robert Pattinson was very introverted. However, he was very good at math and had a natural aptitude for science. This coupled with his strong religious convictions saw him pursue a career in medicine. He later became a medical adviser to the Royal Family. During this time, he developed an interest in psychiatry and addiction treatment. He also began studying Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language, and began teaching itself. In addition to all of this, he dabbled in archaeology, botany, and mycology. Then, there was the acting. Even before he became famous, he had already succeeded in the field and wanted to explore new avenues. Enter the stage and this is where his career really started. He later became one of the most revered actors of the 20th century. It was only then that he really started living the good life. He had money, fame, and respect, and he didn’t hesitate to show the world what he had achieved. He had come a long way from that puppy dog look. He had become a fully-fledged Renaissance man.
