The world’s most famous redhead loves to show off his perfectly paired big hair and big ears in all sorts of pictures. While many of us may be familiar with his work as the star of the Harry Potter series, it was his role as the vampire Lestat that truly made him famous. Born into an acting family, it wasn’t long before he decided that this was the career that he wanted to pursue.

Pattinson grew up in a family of actors. His brother, James, is also an actor and appeared with his sisters, Grace and Emilia, in a film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. It was evident early on that he had a gift for imitating other people’s voices and could carry on lengthy conversations in character. By the time that he finished high school, he had already decided that this was the direction that he wanted to go in. While he attended Royal College of Art in London, he got his first break in 2011 when he starred in the critically acclaimed drama, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Since then, he has firmly established himself as one of the world’s leading men, starring in a string of successful films including the latest entry in the Twilight series, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.  

A Hollywood Career

Aside from his many accolades from acting, he has also found success in the world of music. In 2012, he released his first solo album, a collection of covers titled, Lost in the Sounds. The album featured his take on classic songs by artists such as Prince and The Beatles. In addition to his solo album, he has also collaborated with the British band, Bastille on the song, “Pompeii”. In 2014, he released his second solo album, Twickenham, a collection of acoustic folktales inspired by his own experiences growing up in the affluent London suburb of Twickenham. His musical career has established him as a prominent figure in the world of classical music, with many critics hailing his voice as “mesmerizing” and “astonishing”. In addition to his musical pursuits, he has also had roles in film and television. He played Cedric Diggory in the penultimate Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and he made his television debut in a 2013 episode of the comedy series, House of Gucci. 

Stylish Icon

Pattinson started making waves in the fashion world long before he became a Hollywood actor. In fact, he is often credited with helping to popularize the “goth” look in film. In the early 2000s, he adopted a distinctive look that combined classic men’s fashion with a touch of Goth glam. He often wore classic black leather jackets mixed with red and white stripes or checked shirts paired with distressed trousers or leather gloves. In a 2007 interview with Glamour magazine, he said, “I suppose the appeal of a goth is that there is no wrong look if you are wearing what you feel. If you feel like wearing leather and spiked wristbands, then by God, you should!” While many of his fans may still identify with his early “goth” phase, he has since evolved his look to incorporate more classic fashion choices as well as luxurious fabrics and embellishments. In September 2015, he was named the most stylish male celebrity in the world by British fashion magazine, Vogue and, in 2016, he was listed in the top ten most stylish men globally by various publications, including Vogue and Esquire.

Charismatic Star

Aside from his amazing on-screen charisma, it is clear that Robert Pattinson is also a genuinely kind and generous man. He has been known to give out expensive gifts and treat his co-stars and crew to luxurious adventures. When he isn’t working, he likes to spend his time between France and the UK exploring the countryside and visiting historic castles. He also has a particular affinity for animals and has been known to rescue abandoned animals and take them in for care. In May 2015, he became an official patron of the World Animal Protection. Over the years, he has foster-raised a german shepherd named, Woody, and an African serval cat named, Milo. He has donated money to various animal charities and is also a dedicated vegan, having endorsed several plant-based products, including Romy Rose Gold’s collagen peptides and Vega Juice. He has long supported and promoted causes close to his heart, donating money to various animal charities and sustainability causes including WaterAid (saving lives and protecting livelihoods by providing safe drinking water), World Animal Protection (fighting the cruelty caused by animal agriculture), and Vogue (supporting the empowerment and recognition of women worldwide through journalism and storytelling). He is also a supporter of Earth Echo, an international non-governmental organization that builds communities of practice to tackle climate change.

The Money Behind The Actor

Pattinson is one of the most in-demand actors of our time, commanding huge sums of money for his work. In 2015, Forbes ranking him as the fourth-most powerful celebrity in the world, with a net worth of $150 million. His brother, James, is also a successful musician and has been named by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 20 Most Influential People in Rock and Roll History”. The band, The Bastards, who featured his brother James on guitar and him on vocals, described their music as “post-punk glam” and “early ’90s hair metal”. They cited influences ranging from Ozzy Osbourne to Robert Pattinson and Madonna to Marilyn Manson. They have released three full-length albums and have sold over 500,000 records worldwide. The group also got its own comic book, The Bastards in Vienna: Masters of Mock Torture, in part because, according to bassist and vocalist Alex MacFarlane, “We’re always looking for the next big thing. So, when Robert Pattinson went to Austria to see the Bastards play, we knew we needed to make his fan festival a thing of beauty.”  

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is the highest-grossing film of all time, having made more than $850 million worldwide. In November 2015, it became the first film to become a Global Blockbuster (meaning that it had a sales value of over $500 million worldwide). In 2016, he was again named the most influential male celebrity by Vogue, as well as listed as one of Australia’s Top 40 Most Influential Celebrities.
