Robert Pattinson is definitely one of the most in-demand attractive guys of 2019. The 28-year-old British actor currently has a new girlfriend, but he hasn’t been afraid to share his romantic news with the world. Most recently, the Hollywood A-lister confirmed his relationship with Australian actress Bella Thorne. The twosome met while filming the upcoming Disney film, The Old Man and the Girl, which is based on the book of the same name by Meg Wolstenholme.

It seems the actor was smitten with the stunning blonde right from the start. While filming the 2019 adaptation of the popular Roald Dahl book, he reportedly couldn’t keep his eyes off of Thorne. After making their way through the Dahl project, the two headed to London for a cocktail party. The next day, they were spotted sharing a private romantic moment on set. The actor’s representative has since confirmed their exclusive affair to the press, but he hasn’t shied away from adding more bling to their image. On Saturday, Pattinson shared an official photo of himself and Thorne on his Instagram page. The picture shows the couple embracing in a passionate kiss. The passionate display appeared to confirm their romance. And just days later, he made the news official by tweeting, “Me and @bellathorne are lovers.”

Why Don’t You Just Come Out And Say It?

It’s no secret that being in the public eye can be extremely distracting. Between work and his hectic movie shooting schedule, the actor probably doesn’t get enough sleep. If his busy schedule has you convinced that he’s in a committed relationship with Thorne, then why not come out and confirm it? Especially since it seems the two are perfectly matched and committed to each other. Besides, Pattinson hasn’t been afraid to be open and honest about his love life, as evidenced by his dating history.

The British actor began dating Victoria’s Secret model and Instagram star, Gigi Hadid, in 2017. Their relationship was made public when Gigi gave birth to their son, Kash. Unfortunately, after just five months of being a father, Gigi broke up with him. When asked about his ex-girlfriend and current love affair with Thorne, Pattinson stated, “It’s a new dawn. I’m in a new place in my life. I don’t want to be tied down by the past, particularly when the present is so gorgeous. I think everything happens for a reason. I’m so grateful to be with someone who makes me feel like myself again.”

The Reason For The Slow Burn

It’s not just about love and loyalty; sometimes, a slow buildup of tension is exactly what you need to set the scene for a heated encounter. At first, Pattinson’s public affection for Thorne might have seemed harmless. They were often spotted holding hands or sharing an affectionate kiss. But perhaps this was all a facade and their relationship started out rather cold. After all, Thorne is a complete opposite to Pattinson in almost every way. She grew up in Sydney, Australia, while he’s a Londoner through and through. Additionally, Thorne has had a very public relationship with actor Charlie Hunnam. They began dating in 2015 and were together for almost a year before making their relationship public in 2018. Pattinson and Thorne certainly have an antagonistic relationship in the works, and it would make total sense for them to spend some time learning how to hate each other before getting to know each other.

The Old Man and the Girl is set to hit theaters on Christmas Day. And although it doesn’t have the most romantic story, the movie is sure to become a holiday classic. Roald Dahl’s unique brand of storytelling will captivate audiences and make them laugh and cry at the same time. With his classic British humor and trademark candor, Roald Dahl will have fans around the world. The author’s other classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, was turned into a very successful movie in 2005. Perhaps The Old Man and the Girl will be the next big thing from Roald Dahl?
