The man of the hour—or at least one of them—is back. Robby Pattinson’s latest conquest is sure to become the next It girl. But not only that: the 22-year-old is now firmly established as one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors. And after an extremely successful 2018, he’s poised to lead an even more luxurious lifestyle in the coming year.
The son of the acclaimed British actor David and actress Vanessa, Robby was born and raised in London. He began acting at a young age, landing a role in the family business, Van Cleef & Van Cleef, before making his name for the big screen in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Since then, he’s appeared in major blockbusters such as The Lighthouse, Deadpool 2, and the upcoming Death on the Nile. He was previously engaged to Suki Waterhouse, but the pair called it quits in 2018.
Whether he’s courting superstition or not, Robby certainly knows how to work a room. The British actor has become a regular at high-end fashion events, hobnobbing with the rich and famous. He’s also made no secret of his affinity for a good time, jetting around the world for the sake of a flutter. In the coming year, he’ll be looking for a wife who can help him settle down. But until then, he’ll be content to continue having affairs with the hottest women in the industry.
The Golden Hour
The golden hour is an expression used in filmmaking to describe the first hour of a film’s premiere. Inspired by this, we’ve decided to use it as a catch-all phrase for any glamorous moment in a movie that is both exciting and representative of a brand or product. So whether you’re at the premiere of a film or standing in line at the coffee shop, the golden hour is when you get the chance to take a peek at the gorgeous people and exciting things that are coming your way.
You might have guessed that fashion-forward Robby would be a fan of film’s premier hour. Whether it’s gracing the red carpet or standing in line to buy the latest Kylie Jenner-endorsed lipstick, he’s certainly used to flashing his charm in front of the cameras.
But perhaps his favorite time is when the cameras aren’t rolling. Since his stint in X-Men: Apocalypse, he’s become an increasingly social media-savvy actor. He regularly shares exciting news about his upcoming projects, and in the past year alone has gained over 5 million Instagram followers. He’s also built a community of fans on TikTok, accumulating over 15 million followers. Most importantly, he’s kept them engaged with his content, continually posting new clips and vlogs. For a 22-year-old, this is no easy feat.
And for a brand or product to truly captivate a celebrity, they need to be able to engage with their consumers on a personal level. Whether it’s Victoria Beckham’s mini bucket bags or Marc Jacobs’s Marc Jacobs Jasmine perfume, these brands can hold a special place in a celebrity’s heart. We look to these brands as a sign of innovation and creativity, wanting to work with them because they understand what our industry needs. With so much change in the air, who knows what future trends and innovations will emerge, inspiring people to pick up a needle and thread and get creating!
A Year Of Flutter
This coming year will be a landmark one for Robby. Not only is he embarking on a new adventure as a filmmaker, but he’s also expecting his first child with his partner, the actress Bella Thorne. Needless to say, this is sure to change his life forever. While Robby is known for his flamboyance when it comes to dating, this will be the first big change in his life that has not been deliberately planned. The new father is looking to embrace parenthood the best he can.
Bella and Robby’s relationship is one to watch. The couple have been inseparable since meeting while working on the set of the Twilight franchise in 2014. They’ve been together ever since, and in spite of Robby’s hectic schedule, he’s chosen to make parenting a key priority. He’s taken a leave of absence from filmmaking to be a stay-at-home dad and to help Bella raise their child, Apple. According to reports, they’re expecting a daughter around the end of the year.
While some people may look at this relationship and think it’s perfect, nothing in life is perfectly smooth. Just look at Robby’s past. One of the biggest mysteries concerning the star is how he ended up single at such a young age. Back in 2016, when he was just 20 years old, paparazzi spotted him leaving a nightclub alone. Since then, he’s been linked to multiple A-list celebrities, many of whom he’s already graced the silver screen with. He was previously engaged to Suki Waterhouse. Sadly, the pair called it quits in 2018, but perhaps it’s a lesson in never fully trusting anyone.
So, while we wait to see what 2019 has in store for Robby, let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? Here’s a look back at some of his most memorable moments from the past year.
Red Carpet Moments
No star is completely immune to the paparazzi, and for some, working with the media can be both a blessing and a curse. For Robby, it’s undoubtedly been the former. Since his break from filming, he’s made headlines for all the right reasons. He’s graced the red carpet multiple times, notably attending the British Film Awards & the Critics’ Choice Awards. At the BAFTAs, he was seen canoodling with acclaimed French director Luc Besson. And at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, he even managed to spark a fashion trend as he opted for a white suit instead of his usual tuxedo look. His daring choice drew praise from fashion insiders, but also led to questions about whether or not he was courting superstition.
As for his films, they’ve drawn praise both critically and financially. The former X-Men star earned a total of four Oscar nominations in the coming year, including Best Picture and Best Actor (for Bryan). It’s also been one of the biggest hits of all time, accumulating over $1 billion in global box office sales. Now that he’s free from contract obligations, it’s quite possible that he’ll be earning more than ever before. For a younger actor, this is certainly a career to look forward to.
The Cannes Connection
One of the major highlights of last year was the annual Cannes Film Festival. The French film festival is one of the most prestigious in the world, and certainly one of the most famous film festivals in France. It’s attracted a who’s who of Hollywood royalty, from Michael Douglas to Angelina Jolie. It was also the setting for one of the biggest love stories of the year, where Robby’s character, Michael, comes face-to-face with his lifelong love, Bella. The star even got to strut his stuff on the famous red carpet, looking dashing in a black suit and holding hands with Thorne. Michael and Bella’s story is one of the main themes of this year’s festival. It will no doubt be the primary focus of discussion for those at the forefront of the film industry. Especially now that Robby has been named as one of the festival’s official newcomers.
New York Fashion
This coming year will also see Robby grace the cover of important fashion magazines. At the start of the year, Harper’s Bazaar revealed the cover story and model-portrait of their January/February 2019 issue. On the cover is a stunning portrait of the actor, done in collaboration with famed photographer Mario Testino. The pair worked their magic on the January cover, transforming Robby into a winter wonder. On the cover of the same issue, Anna Wintour’s Vogue mag devoted an entire spread to the actor. It was one of the most highly anticipated fashion stories of the year. Not only is Vogue one of the most prominent fashion magazines in the world, but it’s also the home of supermodel Cindy Crawford. It will no doubt be the highlight of the magazine’s January issue.
