The British actor recently admitted that he’s ‘in a bit of a rut’ as far as his love life is concerned. While he’s been linked to many A-listers, he’s mostly shied away from the spotlight. Now that his latest film, Good Time, has come out, it’s time for him to change that.
Pattinson plays a down-on-his-luck bachelor who teams up with a beautiful divorcee (Saoirse Ronan) to pull off a heist. During the movie’s press tour, which wrapped last week, the actor opened up about his romantic life:
He Loves Luxury
The Hollywood legend said that he tries to maintain a balance between luxury and simplicity, adding that he prefers to spend money on “things that count” rather than “treats”. When asked if he was ever tempted to go on a luxurious vacation, he replied:
“I’ve been on amazing vacations. I don’t want to forget about them. But sometimes you need a change of scenery to remember what’s important in life. That’s all.”
Pattinson also spoke about the difference in values between him and his character Nicki:
“I think that me and Nicki are opposite in many ways. He’s very romantic and treats women well, and I’m more of a realist. We both just want different things out of life.”
It’s clear that Pattinson is a man of wealth and taste. When he revealed that he grew up wanting to be a photographer, it came as no surprise that many of the film’s fashion-related scenes were shot in a fancy hotel.
He’s Been Linked To Many
The actor has been linked to the rich and famous for some time now, mostly because of his good looks and easygoing nature. He’s been linked to all sorts of public figures, some of whom he’s even turned down:
- Lady Gaga
- Barbra Streisand
- Naomi Campbell
- Jennifer Lopez
- Marilyn Monroe
- Kate Winslet
- Jolie Béland
- Suki Waterhouse
- Angelina Jolie
Pattinson has been in a number of high-profile relationships, most notably with model and actor Bella Hadid. The two are currently in a comfortable relationship and were recently spotted holding hands as they walked through London.
Has He Found Love?
There’s no saying that Pattinson doesn’t want to find love. He’s been in a number of long-term relationships, some of which were even featured in tabloids:
- Finn Jones
- Jake Gyllenhaal
- Tom Hiddleston
- Mikael Persson
- Tobias Menzies
- Paul Bettany
- Adrian Battrio
- Jason Squire
But in the meantime, Pattinson is enjoying the freedom that comes with single-hood. When he’s not working, he likes to spend his time exploring the city he calls home, drinking craft beer, and dating whoever he wants.
Whether or not he’s found “the one”, Pattinson seems happy. He recently made headlines when he bought a $40,000 diamond ring for his girlfriend. When asked about whether or not the purchase was a proposal, he laughed: “Not at all. It’s just a token of my love.”
