If you’ve been wondering what is going on with the ‘Twilight’ actor lately, you’re in the right place. It seems that Rob Pattinson has taken a break from promoting his new film ‘Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ to enjoy some well-deserved peace. This came as no great surprise as the actor has recently been very private about his life. Now, it seems that he is stepping out of hiding and sharing more about himself with the world. Today, we will take a look inside the actor’s mysterious world, discovering more about his personal life and what drives him to want to keep things private.
A Private Actor
Before he was famous, Rob Pattinson was just another struggling actor looking to make it in Hollywood. In fact, he has admitted to having a hard time paying the bills. For a while, the ‘Twilight’ star was even living in his cars. Then, thanks to a lucky break, he landed a role in a major motion picture. The rest, as they say, is history.
Since ‘Twilight,’ Rob Pattinson has mostly kept a low profile. He has only taken on a few smaller supporting roles and has mostly focused on raising his son, who was born in 2007. The only time the actor stepped out in front of the camera was when he agreed to be in a PSA (public service announcement) for autism awareness. After that, he disappeared from the headlines for a bit. But it seems like he has a new project lined up, and fans can’t wait to see more of this talented star. The break from ‘Twilight’ will no doubt prove to be a good thing for Rob Pattinson’s self-image as he prepares to take on more challenging roles.
A Rugrats-Loving, Dog-Loving Teenager
Even before he was famous, Rob Pattinson had a special connection to animals. In fact, his first ever acting role was in a 2006 episode of the popular children’s television show ‘Rugrats.’ In the episode, titled ‘Rugrats Go Wild!,’ the main characters travel to the forest to search for magic beans that will enable them to age backwards. To prepare for the role, Rob Pattinson watched several episodes of ‘Rugrats’ in full, and even took inspiration from some of the show’s funniest scenes. He also considered adopting a pet dog to work on his character’s emotional side. But apparently, that isn’t something he wanted to do, as he has never owned a furry friend. Instead, he became more connected to animals after being cast in ‘Twilight,’ as he now considers himself an expert handler of large animals. He also keeps a steady stream of dogs and cats at his home in London. So, not only does he have a soft spot for animals, but he also seems to know how to properly take care of them.
A Genuine Guy
Even before he became a famous actor, Rob Pattinson was known for his kindness and consideration for others. He has an entire Twitter account filled with positive tweets, and has spoken about his deep respect for women. He also regularly donates his time to various charities, including animal-related causes. Whenever he gets a new film or TV show, he always makes sure to watch a few documentaries about conservation and animal welfare. In fact, while he was filming ‘Twilight,’ he started a petition to urge Disney to end their practice of slaughtering animals for clothing. You can’t tell me that this isn’t the kind of guy we need in Hollywood.
But what exactly drives this genuine guy to want to keep his private life private? It seems that Rob Pattinson’s greatest fear is being portrayed by someone else. It is no secret that Hollywood can be a bit manipulative, and Rob doesn’t want to put himself in a situation where he could be exposed. For example, while promoting ‘Twilight,’ part of the actor’s contract required him to promote the franchise’s “anti-wolf” propaganda. So, he and his team had to come up with a strategy to ensure that no one could portray him in a negative light. They decided to completely avoid interviews and only do press junkets for the big-budget franchise films. This strategy paid off as Rob Pattinson avoided any potentially embarrassing interviews and only did press junkets for his big-budget franchise films. This kept his private life out of the headlines, and he was able to continue promoting “Twilight’s” good side without anyone knowing the real reason he doesn’t like to talk about himself or his work.

The Making Of ‘Twilight’
When ‘Twilight’ was first released, fans were treated to a glimpse into the troubled actor’s life. The film is an adaptation of Stephanie Meyers’ bestselling young adult novel, and follows the saga’s main character as she battles her way through an array of romantic tribulations. But while the movie is a fluffy romance, it wasn’t always meant to be. In fact, ‘Twilight’ was originally supposed to be a horror movie about a teenage girl who becomes a vampire. However, thanks to the tireless efforts of its screenwriter, Chris Weitz, the movie ended up being way more romantic than monstrous.
The original screenplay for ‘Twilight’ was written by Chris Weitz and Ivan Reitman. But soon after, Weitz left the project to pursue his own writing and directing career. So, for the next phase of ‘Twilight’s’ development, the producers turned to Ivan Reitman. Reitman had previously directed movies such as ‘The Last Samurai’ and ‘Red Dawn,’ and had a reputation for making complicated stories easier to follow. So, it was decided that he should take the helm of ‘Twilight.’
Prior to ‘Twilight,’ Rob Pattinson had mostly appeared in British films and had only taken on small supporting roles in bigger productions. As a result of the increased budget and more complex production schedule for ‘Twilight,’ the actor decided to take a pay cut. In exchange for his cut, he was given the title of executive producer. He was also given an office on set with a view of the London skyline (which, by the way, he loves). Reitman, on the other hand, did not have as much influence over the movie’s development as he would have liked. But he still approved of his grandson’s acting career, and became a proud Grandpa Paulie.
‘Twilight’ was originally going to be released in December 2012. But thanks to the efforts of its production team, the movie was pushed back a few times. Finally, it was released on August 14, 2013, which was nearly two years to the day after it was originally scheduled to premiere. The reason for the extended release was simple:audiences wanted to see more of the gorgeous Twilight cast.
The movie was a commercial and critical success. It was one of the highest-grossing films of all time, and currently holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the film review site. But despite its popularity, Rob Pattinson’s life hasn’t changed much since the first movie was released. While he takes on more challenging roles in the future, he will still mostly keep a low profile. And when he does talk about his work, he will likely still mention “Twilight.” In fact, during an interview with Conan O’Brien, the actor mentioned that while he isn’t comfortable talking about his personal life, he is open about his work and is excited to see people interested in it.
