The name Rob Pattinson might not mean much to you – unless you’re a fan of The Twilight Saga or a fashion journalist. The 28-year-old Australian actor mainly focuses on supporting and starring in Hollywood films, with only a few notable exceptions. Most recently, he portrayed Edward Cullen in Summit’s Twilight film franchise or, if you believe the rumors, he will soon be starring in the sequel to The Twilight Saga. In 2014, Rob Pattinson was named the most eligible bachelor in the world by Vogue. It was only a matter of time before he finally settled down with a fiancee. Last month, it was announced that Pattinson had chosen his long-time sweetheart, Francesca Belucci, as his wife. The couple were married in an intimate celebration held in Venice, Italy.
Pattinson’s parents, Linda and Tim, have been campaigning for their son to settle down for years. In 2009, Tim announced that their family was complete, and they were content to see their children spread their wings and follow their hearts. They were over the moon when Rob Pattinson finally committed to a fiancee.
Aside from acting, Rob Pattinson enjoys traveling and taking pictures. He has visited more than 70 countries and taken more than 500,000 pics on his Instagram account. Aside from social media, his favorite way to communicate with his fans is through his website, `robpattinson.com`, where he regularly posts new material. His fashion-related Instagram handle is `@robpattinson_fashion`, and he uses the `@robpattinson` account for his general self-expression. At the `@robpattinson_tv` account, he shares rare television appearances and films.
Raised In A Family Of Photographers
The roots of an actor’s career can be traced back to the very start, and even then, it wasn’t an easy journey. Rob Pattinson was born in Melbourne, Australia, and grew up in an environment surrounded by photographers. Linda and Tim were both professional photographers when they met and fell in love. Their first wedding photo was taken less than a year after they met. When Tim heard that Rob wasn’t feeling well at his son’s birth, he postponed his honeymoon to be able to be with his wife and newborn baby.
The first few years of Rob’s life were spent traveling the world with his parents as a family. Tim and Linda focused on documenting the everyday life of a relatively well-off family. One of their biggest influences was Richard Avedon, the renowned fashion photographer.
Breaking Into Acting
Despite all the traveling and portraying of famous figures, Rob Pattinson decided to study business at The University of Melbourne. It was a good move (he still has one year left to complete his Bachelor of Commerce degree), as the Bachelors in Business offer some fantastic pathways for an actor to break into Hollywood. While studying, he continued to appear in small part roles in TV series and movies. He was offered a small part in the Broadway production of Dreamgirls, and booked a festival run in Austria. He also had a bit part in The Great Gatsby, which was a stepping stone to greater things.
The Twilight Saga
It’s been an eventful five years since Rob Pattinson’s acting career took off. The series The Twilight Saga became a worldwide phenomenon, winning the actor a devoted fan base. He was subsequently propelled into stardom, and became one of the most iconic faces in Hollywood. In 2011, he played a key role in Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and later that same year, filmed a new version of The Twilight Saga, titled The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Rob was considered for a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his efforts in Eclipse. In 2012, he appeared in a remix of the Saga’s iconic red-carpet scene, and landed a role in the upcoming Hollyweird film, The Spectacular Spider-Man.
Further Hollywood Success
In addition to being nominated for an Oscar, Rob Pattinson has also been nominated for a Golden Globe and has won a Bafta, making him one of the most decorated young actors in Hollywood. Aside from acting, he enjoys fashion. In 2014, he started `@robpattinson_fashion`, a division of his fashion Instagram account. He designs and sells his own collection of mini-dresses and jazz outfits, and collaborates with high-end designers to create unique accessories for ladies.
A Growing Family
In 2016, Tim and Linda announced that they were expanding their family. They were excited to become grandparents, and began to look for stylish accommodations in which to raise their grandchildren. They found an apartment in Marina Del Rey, and are loving every minute of being a proud grandparent.
In 2018, Tim and Linda launched `@robpattinson_fam`, a division of their Instagram account where they share family photos and videos. The couple are also very active on social media, regularly posting about their grandkids and what they get up to. They also use the account to show off their incredible engagement ring and luxurious honeymoon. In November 2018, the couple finally revealed the name of their first child, as well as their newborn granddaughter, Ava Delia.
Marriage And Kids
In 2014, Tim and Linda’s son, Rob, finally decided to commit to a long-term fiancee, Italian actress Francesca Belucci. They got engaged in secret, and invited family and friends to join them on the occasion of a renowned Australian restaurant. After a beautiful ceremony, the newlyweds spent their honeymoon in Italy. It was the beginning of a new era for the Pattinson family.
In 2020, Linda and Tim posted the first family photo with their two grandchildren. It is clear that they are proud and over the moon to be able to finally introduce their children to the world. So far, the couple have only revealed the name of the first son, Rob, and not the name of their second grandchild, a daughter they had with Belucci. It is clear that they want to keep the second baby secret for as long as possible.
His Style Is Unique
Aside from acting and fashion, Rob Pattinson also dabbles in photography. He has visited more than 70 countries and taken more than 500,000 pics on his Instagram account. Many fans are eager to see more of Rob’s unique style and experience, especially since he is such a private person. He rarely gives interviews or lifts for fashion magazines, and when he does, it is typically for high-profile celebrities.
An Aussie celeb, Shannyn Wednesdays, has been vocal in calling for more interviews and lifts with the award-winning actor. She tweeted, “If only Rob would do more interviews, I could learn so much. He always has something unique to say and is so humble about it. He never projects an image of ego. ”
The Fashion World Reacts
The fashion world has taken notice of the unique star. In 2016, British Vogue proclaimed, “We can’t think of a more unique and fabulous face to front a fashions line … [he] is all sizes and colors and can bring a fresh spin to a classic look.” In 2019, GQ proclaimed, “He is without a doubt one of the most spectacular and original faces in the business. If you want to create a unique style all your own, Rob Pattinson is the man to talk to.”
