Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular actors of our time. With his brooding looks, he has managed to capture the hearts of many girls (and some guys) across the world. But does he have a secret girl who’s patiently waiting for her chance to shine? We think so. And we’ve got the perfect proposal to prove it.
First, you need to understand a few things about Robert Pattinson. The first is that he is pretty private. In fact, since news broke that he is dating the beautiful and talented actress Lily Collins, most of his photos have been staged and edited to protect his privacy.
There are also rumors that he doesn’t like to spend a lot of time with the people he dates. Instead, he prefers to keep his distance and let his dates get used to the idea of being with a movie star before they realize what’s going on. Or maybe he just wants to keep his relationships casual.
Whatever the case may be, Robert Pattinson can’t seem to stay away from the press. And for the most part, he doesn’t seem to mind talking about himself in interviews. But one subject he never talks about is his love life. Until now.
In an interview with the U.K.’s Daily Mail, the Twilight star opened up about his perfect match and what she’s been missing out on because of fame.
“I never thought that I would find true love,” he said. “I always assumed that I would just be in relationships for the purposes of convenience… And then I met this woman. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
When asked if he would propose to his girlfriend during an upcoming holiday, he replied, “Maybe. I mean, we’ll see.”
Despite the couple’s happy and private nature, this won’t be their first rodeo. In fact, they’ve been dating for nearly a year and seem to be made for each other. While on the set of the Twilight franchise, they became friends and eventually started dating. And it’s been an interesting journey so far. From a Reddit AMA to a front row seat at a Grammy Awards red-carpet spectacle, here’s a look at the fascinating life of Robert Pattinson.
From Twilight to Life in the Ocean to Outside
While Robert Pattinson is best known for his starring role in Twilight, he has gone on to star in other major motion pictures. He also has a long list of collaborations with some of the most renowned artists in the industry, most notably David Bowie and Ed Sheeran. He even released an album, Cosmic, in 2014, which featured several of these artists as well as a cameo by Taylor Swift.
Perhaps most notably, Pattinson has taken on unusual supporting roles that don’t necessarily fit within the Hollywood system. His performance in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse was hailed as one of the greatest supporting roles of all time. And then there’s his turn as Aquaman in this year’s Justice League. While not exactly a traditional leading role, it’s been described as a “banner film” and a role that will “define his career.”
This acting career took him from England to Los Angeles, where he decided to make it his home. He bought a house in Bel Air, which he’s slowly renovating and improving. And it’s proven to be a pretty penny-saving move. He now owns a 7,500 square foot ranch that was previously on the market for $16 million.
A Reddit AMA With The Most Influential Actor Of Our Time
To celebrate the release of his latest film, The Last Face, which opened in theaters on March 23, Robert Pattinson held a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session. With his dog, Harvey, by his side, he fielded questions from users across the globe. The AMA lasted for three hours and covered a variety of subjects, including acting, fashion, and music. And at the end of it, he revealed a bit more about the nature of his relationship with Collins. Here’s the transcript of what took place:
How Do You Feel About Your Successes As An Actor And A Fashion Influencer?
The Reddit user “CrisPattz” first asked about the nature of his relationship with Collins, to which Robert replied, “I’m not usually one for relationships. However, I have been blessed with some good fortune in my life, and I want to share it with this woman. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
He continued, “I’ve been in a relationship with the same woman now for over a year. We are incredibly happy together, and it’s given my life a new meaning. I’ve never felt the need to be physically or emotionally intimate with anyone else. I love being with my [girlfriend] and looking after her.”
This answer seemingly confirmed rumors that he doesn’t spend a lot of time with the people he dates. But he goes on to say that he views his work as a reflection of himself, so it’s not like he doesn’t get the chance to be with his date often enough. He just doesn’t seem to feel the need to throw caution to the wind and be completely open with the people he loves the most. At least not in public.
Is It True That You’re Not Really That Close To Taylor Swift?
The Swedish singer and songwriter, Greta Van Fleet, asked the question, “Is it true that you’re not really that close to Taylor Swift?” to which Robert replied, “I have a lot of respect for her music and her artistry. I think she’s an incredible lyricist and has a beautiful voice. I just haven’t found the right person yet.”
While it’s true that he doesn’t seem to be in a rush to find that right person, there’s no denying that he has had some incredibly public relationships. From Kristen Stewart to Taylor Swift, he seems to have dated a lot of beautiful women.
And it’s not like he hasn’t opened up about his philandering ways. In his 1997 memoir, Lost in Translation, he describes how he dated several women at the same time and had relationships with multiple famous women. The memoir was turned into a film in 2004, with Scarlett Johansson taking on Van Fleet’s role as Robert Pattinson’s character’s cousin, Mary.
What Was Your Biggest Fashion Blunder?
The Italian designer, Marco Brunelli, asks the question, “What Was Your Biggest Fashion Blunder?” and then lists off a number of faux pas, from Christian Dior’s use of fur to Ralph Lauren’s use of a faux pas.
“I love Christian Dior, but if I’m honest, I think they made a couple of major fashion blunders,” he says. “They used to put some of their biggest fashion names on their clothes, and it used to drive me crazy. Why would they put Heidi Klein on a dress?…I think they’ve sort of taken a step back from that now.”
He continues, “I also loved Ralph Lauren when they first began, and I still do, but the way they’ve changed their ways a bit hasn’t suited me. The worst was when they used to put their polka dots on their suits and their shirts. I just think they needed to go back to basics.”
While it’s true that both Christian Dior and Ralph Lauren went back to their basics (at least in terms of style), they still get labeled as “fashion blunders.”
If You Could Design Your Own Wardrobe, What Would You Pick?
The Swedish designer Elsa Beckman asks the question, “If You Could Design Your Own Wardrobe, What Would You Pick?” And then she lists off a number of designers that she admires, from Dior to Givenchy.
“I love Christian Dior, but my all-time favorite must be Chanel,” she says. “It’s so pure and classic. If I had my way, I’d dress exclusively in Chanel.”
While it’s true that Beckman would dress in Chanel, she is not alone in her admiration. In fact, many women have professed their undying love for the French fashion house. Many credit Chanel with helping to elevate their fashion status. After all, who wouldn’t want to be dressed by the Queen of Fashion herself?
