Robert Pattinson’s girlfriend has a new year’s resolution — and it has nothing to do with fashion. Zoe Kazan, the actress and singer, has vowed to be a better girlfriend to the Twilight actor and comedian. She wants to change the type of women he usually dates, which she describes as “demihandsome” young women who are either “crazy” or into “boy culture.” She wants to become the perfect girlfriend and influence his behavior towards more mature and serious women.
Here, we explore Kazan’s resolution and how she plans to go about making it happen.
Take A Look At Zoe’s Past
Kazan previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal and Joaquin Phoenix, but it was Pattinson who became her platonic companion. When the couple first started dating in 2015, they were regularly spotted out on strolls and social gatherings in New York. In early 2018, they were even spotted vacationing in the French Riviera with friends and family. It seems that Pattinson has finally found the woman of his dreams and isn’t looking to play the field any longer.
While there’s no denying Pattinson is one of the most recognizable faces in the world, it’s not like he’s been hiding who he is from friends or fans. In fact, he’s been very open about his dating history, frequently speaking about his exes and sharing funny anecdotes about them on social media. In the past, he’s described Gyllenhaal and Phoenix as “very funny, very mature,” adding: “They’re two beautiful, incredibly bright, and very kind men.”
A More Mature Attitude
One of the biggest turn-ons for Pattinson is a woman’s maturity, so much so that he describes himself as a “40-year-old kid.” He often cites Brigitte Bardot and Sophia Loren as two of his biggest influences. He admires their passion, their confidence, and their strong individuality.
While he’s never openly spoken about having kids, it’s clear that he wants to settle down with the right woman and start a family. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he said:
“I want a partner in life who I can grow with and who shares the same sort of values that I do. Someone I can have fun with, but also, like, respect… I don’t want to be with someone who I just want to have fun.”
Kazan’s family is also very supportive of their relationship, and she’s even discussed how important it has been to her. She told Entertainment Tonight:
“He’s an amazing person. I feel really lucky to have found someone who understands me so well. I think the best thing for both of us is that we don’t feel like we have to apologize for who we are or what we want. We can just be ourselves and be together.”
Zoe’s New Year’s Resolution
The 34-year-old New York native reportedly began seeing Pattinson after he attended a concert she gave with her band. They started dating in 2015 and soon after called each other “bae.” The nickname eventually became “Bats.” When asked about her choice of pet name, she laughed and said:
“I named him after the Batman. He’s a great listener and he always tries to understand my perspective. I love how caring he is — he’ll watch over me like a little guardian angel.”
Kazan revealed in a 2018 interview with Playboy that she’d like to change the type of women her boyfriend usually dates. She’d like to see more mature and responsible women around him instead of the “high-maintenance” and “demihandsome” young women he usually interacts with.
“If you want to be perfect, you have to start by being perfect yourself. I want to change the type of woman my boyfriend usually dates — I want to see more mature, responsible women around him.”
Kazan has also spoken about her struggles with body image and how she deals with them. She confessed to Playboy:
“It’s funny, I think that men are a lot more influenced by women than women are by men. When I met Robert, I didn’t feel like this amazing creature that someone’s boyfriend had to protect. I felt like my flaws were flaws, and he was just seeing me as I am. I’ve always been very insecure about my body, especially when I was younger. I felt like I didn’t measure up to the standards of the girls I saw on the cover of magazines. What I realized is that if I want to be accepted, I have to accept myself first.”
Kazan also revealed that her friends have sometimes tried to dissuade her from dating a man who is, how shall we say, well-known.
“They’re like, ‘Dude, you’re going to end up a lonely old man. You’re going to end up with a house full of cats.’ I’m like, ‘Nah, I don’t want to end up with cats.’ They’re like, ‘You’re going to regret it. You’re going to end up cheating on him or something.’ I’m like, ‘No, I’m not going to cheat on him. He’s the greatest.’ They’re like, ‘You’re going to cheat on him because you think he’s not going to leave his wife. He’s going to leave his wife. You’re going to end up heartbroken.'”
Kazan’s resolution is fairly self-explanatory: She wants to be the perfect girlfriend and influence her boyfriend’s behavior towards more mature and responsible women. Perhaps she just wants to show him that she’s a good catch and he’ll want to settle down with her. Who knows? Maybe she’s even trying to coax him into proposing to her.
It’s clear that Kazan is a very determined and loyal woman, which makes her all the more impressive. She’s already changed the type of women her boyfriend usually dates, and now she’s resolved to do so much more. We admire her for her sheer willpower, and we wish her all the best in her quest for perfection.
