Welcome to “I Am Vengeance”, your guide to the Robert Pattinson lifestyle. As the son of a Hollywood royalty, Robert Pattinson has always enjoyed the finer things in life and is credited with introducing the millennial generation to luxurious items. From his early days as the “baddest brother” to his current status as a high-profile Hollywood bachelor, we examine the lifestyle of one of today’s most desired men.
From Bro to Brother
It all began in 1995 when, at the age of 14, Robert Pattinson was sent to boarding school in England. Inspired by the works of J. M. W. Turner, the young artist would spend his days creating watercolor illustrations and his nights listening to the music of his favorite bands. A natural-born leader, Robert quickly rose through the ranks at school and became captain of his dormitory. According to those who knew him at the time, he never lacked ambition, drive, or a desire to please. But it wasn’t until his final year of high school that the dark cloud that would follow him for the rest of his life first appeared. It was then that he was forced to confront a reality he had been avoiding for as long as he could.
During his last year at school, the young heartthrob was forced to confront a reality that he had been avoiding for as long as he could.
While some of his classmates were off discovering the world, Pattinson was busy creating his own. Inspired by the likes of Kate Winslet, Uma Thurman, and the female warriors of Game of Thrones, he began dressing in and drawing attention to himself with a range of bold, masculine ensembles and accessories. And for the first time in his life, he found himself longing for what he couldn’t have: girls. He regularly attended parties where he would be surrounded by women, but instead of inspiring him, it often left him feeling irritated and disheartened. Finally, at the end of his last year at school, he made the decision to leave education and embark on a life in art. He didn’t want to follow in the footsteps of his father, who was also named Robert, and his uncle, who had both died young of alcohol-related illnesses, and succumb to the same demon. So he packed his bags and headed for Paris, France, where he landed a job as a waiter in a café, working his way up from the bottom and ensuring he never had to look back on his school days with regret. As he worked his way up the ladder, he was encouraged to take his fashion dreams global and in 2007, at the age of 22, he launched his own menswear line, entitled RoPActionary. He soon found himself sitting pretty as the face of an upscale urban brand, appearing in adverts, magazine features, and men’s magazines around the world. He also opened up his own store in London. It was during this time that he began to attract a fair amount of attention from the opposite sex. He quickly found himself single-handedly responsible for a rise in penis enlargements and fertility treatments in England. As his celebrity grew, so did the number of high-profile relationships he entered into, often with younger women. He did, however, date some of the most beautiful women in the world and remain in a committed, monogamous relationship with long-term partner Katherine Fallai. After dating Lady Isabella Laura Ashley for six months, in 2012, he became engaged to the 26-year-old French fashion designer. The couple wed in a stunning ceremony in Venice, Italy, later that year and have been seen enjoying happy, family times together ever since. Most recently, at the end of 2019, they welcomed their first child, a daughter they named Mady Elizabeth.
It’s been a love-hate relationship ever since. On the one hand, the adoration of millions worldwide has undoubtedly helped boost his self-confidence and enabled him to take on a more mature approach to life. On the other, his hedonistic lifestyle and dedication to his hobbies and passions have often left him exhausted and with little energy for the everyday things we take for granted, like eating, sleeping, and shagging. It’s clear that despite his incredible talent and charisma, he still isn’t completely comfortable in his own skin. For years, rumors have circulated that he is gay, although he has never really cared enough to find out. In fact, when asked during an interview with Wonderland magazine if he’s ever been in love, his answer was met with a mixture of laughter and relief from the audience. Despite this, he has been linked to some pretty impressive dudes. In 2015, he attended a birthday party for Prince Harry at the House of Lords, where he was seated beside the Queen. At the end of the night, as the guests were leaving, Harry whispered in Diana’s ear that he would like to take her home with him. It’s rumored that Diana was so captivated by the handsome British prince that she dropped her guard and permitted Harry to slip a ring on her finger. They have since been photographed together on numerous occasions and in December 2019, it was announced that the Duchess of Cambridge had given birth to a baby boy and the third in line to the throne, Thomas James. (James, being the son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is officially next in line to the throne after his grandfather King George and father King Edward). While speculation abounds as to the paternity of the baby, speculation does not change the fact that the Duke of Cambridge is a very happy daddy. What is certain, is that the future king, or queen, will have a loving uncle, who is very proud to be a father and an honorary grandfather.
The Luxurious Bachelor
Despite his status as a married man with children, Robert Pattinson still identifies himself as a bachelor. In fact, in October 2019 he celebrated his 29th birthday by inviting hundreds of his closest friends and family, as well as numerous collaborators from across the world, to join him on holiday in Sicily. He presented the island as a place he feels at home and where he can truly relax and be himself. While in Sicily, he made no secret of the fact that he had romantic encounters with a number of the attractive women there. However, in reference to his pending nuptials with his long-term partner, he said, “I don’t want to put a label on it, but I don’t think I’ve ever been happier. I love my wife and family and feel incredibly blessed to have found such a loving and understanding partner. I’m not sure that this kind of relationship is for everyone, but for me it’s a comfortable and contented existence.” While many may consider these words to be an answer to their prayers, for those who adore him and want to see him happily married with children, it may come as a bit of a shock. After all, it’s been nearly 25 years since he first stepped out of the shadows and into the limelight as the “baddest brother” in the Hollywood blockbuster, Twilight.
A Prince Among Nations
Robert Pattinson grew up in one of the wealthiest families in England, thanks to his father, who inherited a fortune from his mother, the late Grand Duchess Maria Antonia of Luxembourg. His family is one of the most prominent in England, boasting a lineage that includes a prince regent and nine prime ministers. While this may sound like a job prerequisite, being a member of the British royal family isn’t actually compulsory and no direct heir to the throne has ever been forced to undertake the role. (If it were, life would imitate art, as the last male heir, Prince Edward, died without living up to the expectations of his royal bloodline in January 2016.) However, as a child, he was expected to carry out royal engagements with his parents and attended a private school with Prince Harry, whose mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was his first cousin. It was also at this point that he began to feel a sense of responsibility toward the LGBTQ community. In the year 2000, he opened up his first charity shop in London, selling items ranging from high-end brands like Miu Miu and Prada to customers who perhaps couldn’t otherwise afford such luxurious items. Since then, he has donated a significant amount of money to a number of charities, including the Born This Way Foundation, which supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. In addition to his work with charities, he has been a vocal supporter of, and fundraiser for, numerous political campaigns, including same-sex marriage and the Labour Party. When he isn’t working or spending time with his family, you will often find him traveling the globe for work or leisure. He is also a keen hunter and fisherman, as well as a qualified scuba diver. In 2014, he was named U.K. Male Vegetarian of the Year and, in 2019, was awarded the O. Balian Humanitarian Award at the Milan International Film Festival.
