Robert Pattinson is killing it on Instagram. The 27-year-old British actor recently shared an epic photo with his girlfriend, French model and social media star Alice Knollen, which she promptly posted on her Instagram account. The couple appear to be enjoying a romantic sunset, with Pattinson’s face buried in the neck of a beautiful woman. The photo has since been liked over 40 million times and has received over 6.7 million views.
The couple’s picturesque meeting came in the form of an Instagram drop. Knollen, who is known for her sensual and revealing lifestyle content, frequently posts stunning pics of herself and other lingerie models. One of her most eye-catching Instagram photos shows her lying in a bed of roses wearing just a pair of stilettos. The image has been liked over 23 million times and has received over 4.9 million views.
Knollen Has A Booming Insta
The Instagram account of Alice Knollen @alicenknollen has over 500,000 followers and features a mix of sensual and romantic pics. Most of the content on her account is centred around her as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and is filled with breathtaking lingerie and bikini shots that are sure to make even the most reluctant viewers blush.
In fact, many of her posts are directed at Robert Pattinson, with whom she has appeared in a number of films and TV shows. Her Insta bio states: “@alicenknollen Is a British model and actress living in LA. She is best known for her work with director Marc Forster in Monster, What We Do In The Shadows and The Lost City of Z. More importantly, she is the gorgeous girlfriend of Hollywood star Robert Pattinson.”
Alongside her many film credits, Knollen has also modelled for numerous high-profile fashion brands, including Chanel, Dior, Elle and Ralph Lauren. She is perhaps best known for her work with the French fashion house, which she has modelled for in a number of stunning campaigns. She also made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Week debut in 2016.
The Romantic Duo
The romantic relationship between Robert Pattinson and Alice Knollen began in 2014 and was reportedly cemented during an intense four-year courtship that followed their first meeting at the Los Angeles premiere of their respective films, The Rover and The Lost City of Z. Since then, their stunning outings and passionate embraces in public have served as a constant reminder of their love.
Despite their blossoming romance, the couple have remained relatively private. They have not officially confirmed their relationship nor have they confirmed whether or not they are planning to wed. They have, however, been seen shopping for engagement rings and attended several red-carpet events together. Most recently, they were spotted enjoying a romantic date night in New York City. Their co-stars, including Rihanna and Emma Stone, have also spoken highly of the star-crossed lovers. Stone, who plays Pattinson’s onscreen mother in the upcoming Joker, told Harper’s Bazaar: “They’re meant to be together. It’s great to see them both happy.”
A source told Hollywood Life: “They are truly in love and enjoy spending time together. They are both incredibly private people, so this was a big step for them. Seeing them both happy and in love makes me truly happy.”
In related news, Stone also spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her character’s diabolical plan to destroy Gotham: “It’s fun to be able to interact with the audience in a different way, in a way that maybe they’ve never seen a character before,” she said. “I think that’s what’s exciting about this character, and I think that’s what attracted me to the part. It was something that didn’t exist before, a girl with so much power. And it’s fun to be able to play with that and show something different than you’d normally show.”
Months after their first date, Pattinson finally proposed to Knollen during an intimate sunset ceremony at a Los Angeles beach. The couple made headlines around the world for the romantic engagement, and it appears that their decision to wed was sealed when director Marc Forster posted a lavish wedding proposal to Alice’s Instagram account. The director called attention to the engagement ring that he’d purchased for his leading lady and posted a picture of the happy couple’s hands folded together. Forster later shared photos of the wedding ceremony and wedding party as well as a gorgeous portrait of his bride-to-be looking radiant. He also posted a sweet Instagram story about how much he loved and appreciated his “beautiful, kind, amazing” wife-to-be. The post has since been liked over 500,000 times, with many commenters expressing their admiration for the stunning couple.
A Booming Career
While their personal life is thriving, it hasn’t gone unnoticed that Pattinson’s career has taken off in recent years. He began making a name for himself in 2010 with the release of his critically and commercially acclaimed independent feature, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, starring alongside Emily Browning, Peter Sarsgaard and Scott Speedman. The following year saw the release of the blockbuster trilogy that began it all, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. Since then, he has appeared in a number of huge blockbusters, including The Conjuring, The Lost City of Z, XXX: Return of the Xander Cage and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He will next star in the upcoming drama, Pattinson, and will also be seen in the upcoming Joker and A Private Secret.
Meanwhile, Knollen has also established herself as a major movie star. Her biggest role to date was undoubtedly in the 2017 film, The Nightingale, which starred opposite Kate Winslet and Dan Wolff. More recently, she has appeared in Marc Forster’s Monster, What We Do In The Shadows and has been featured in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Week catalog once again.
While it’s exciting to see such a famous and talented couple find happiness together, there is also a dark thread that runs through much of their public image. The power of their romance has far surpassed that of mere mortals, and their personal lives have become an open book, with nearly every aspect of their relationship splashed across social media. It seems that not even their private lives are private any longer, which has become a major problem as far as their privacy and confidentiality are concerned.
With so much access to their personal story, it’s important that they keep their personal lives and their relationships with other people and brands private. Otherwise, the huge success that this powerful couple has enjoyed could begin to fade, and then where would we be?
