As if the constant love for Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s romance wasn’t enough, Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson now has a new woman in his life. And what’s more, she’s just as famous as he is.
According to a tweet by none other than Taylor Swift, RPattz is “obsessed” with singer-songwriter and coffee machine activist Molly Saunders. And it looks like he might be ready to put his crazy fan-girl antics on hold, as he has reportedly started the ball rolling on a romance with the womanizing musician.
The Secret Romance
Though their celebrity couple status makes for happy Instagram stories, RPattz’s romance with Saunders seems more like a secret affair. The couple met in London back in March, and have been inseparable ever since. They were even photographed cuddling at the UK premiere of Twilight in London back in April.
And with each other being as famous as they are, it wouldn’t be surprising if their romance was kept under wraps. If the couple shares a luxurious vacation with the paparazzi, it’s probably because they want to keep their love a secret. But whether or not they’re holding hands at the cinema remains to be seen.
Taylor Swift’s Influence
It seems like Taylor Swift had more than just a hand in getting RPattz and Saunders’ curious romance started. As previously mentioned, the pair met in London back in March, and have been inseparable ever since. As if to confirm Taylor’s involvement, the songwriter took to Twitter to give her take on the situation.
Though Taylor didn’t offer any advice on how to handle being in a celebrity couple, she did express her excitement at seeing two of her favorite people in love. That same day, she followed up by tagging both of them in a tweet, along with the caption, “Happy anniversary to both of my favorite people.” And it looks like Taylor’s influence is paying off, as the couple’s romance is reportedly making waves in Tinseltown. And if you believe Paris Jackson, this could just be the beginning.
Other Celebrated Affiliations
Though Taylor Swift is clearly the queen of this newfound affiliation, it appears that other celebrities have had a hand in getting the ball rolling as well. According to a story by The Daily Mail, Saunders met the actor Edward Cullen, AKA ‘Twilight’s’ Edward, back in 2013. During that time, she was working on an album for which he was a contributing producer, and the two apparently established a close bond. She even has a tattoo of his name in her collarbone.
And though it was only recently that Taylor showed her support for RPattz and Saunders, it seems that other famous faces have been following suit. According to The Daily Mail, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and Gwyneth Paltrow have all offered encouragement through their social media accounts. Perhaps the most exciting part of this growing fandom is that it could lead to marriage for the aspiring couple.
Who Is Molly Saunders?
As for who is Molly Saunders, the answer is quite simple. She is a Scottish singer-songwriter and coffee machine activist who rose to fame before the age of 20, when her band The Rifles released their critically acclaimed debut album, The Blackwater Lights. Though a bit on the quieter side, her socially conscious lyrics and passionate singing voice have won her a huge fanbase. In fact, her music has been covered by some of the biggest names in music, including Elbow, Keane, and U2.
Perhaps one of her biggest supporters is Taylor Swift, who named her album Revival, as well as its lead single, after the independent coffee shop where Saunders used to work. And it’s probably safe to assume that she was also an inspiration behind the songwriter’s critically acclaimed 2013 album, Red.
Sober But Not Easy
Though Saunders’ music career is nothing short of phenomenal, it is not exactly a sugar rush that has kept her so busy. In fact, the 32-year-old singer has admitted to being “obsessed” with coffee, explaining how it has helped her through some rough patches in her life. Even more impressive is that she has been able to keep her lifestyle clean. Having never done drugs, she credits her passion for coffee with keeping her sober. And she has been absolutely candid about the fact that being in a relationship has proven to be challenging. Though she would like to eventually settle down with Edward, she feels that a good relationship is not something you can plan for. It takes a conscious effort to remain in a good place, and part of that means being honest with yourself about what you want in life.
Sober, but not easy. That is the perfect summation of what it means to be in a committed relationship with a celebrity. Though there is plenty of room for admiration, there is also plenty about which you can criticize. From their famous romance to their seemingly constant status as trendsetters, it is clear that these two are here to stay.
