In case you missed it, Robert Pattinson recently became a father for the first time, welcoming a baby boy into the world. Since then, the ‘Twilight’ star has been keeping busy filming a new movie, ‘Battle of the Sexes’, and celebrating his new family member with social media. However, it seems that Pattinson is already thinking about the future of his child and has started a new Instagram account, which has upset many fans. To get more details, check out the Instagram posts below.
The New Account Is Private
So far, the ‘Twilight’ actor’s new account has been private, which means that only those who have been specifically invited can see the content. However, as of right now, that seems to be changing as the Robert Pattinson Instagram page is starting to see some activity. Most of the posts so far have been pictures of the actor with his baby son and some personal reflections on being a father. In an Instagram post on January 19th, Pattinson shared a picture of himself holding his newborn son with the caption:
“What will you name your son? When I was younger, I always wanted to call my baby George. Now that he’s here, I realize that this was a terrible idea. He could end up being the opposite of what I wanted. I hope I raised him the right way and that he will become a responsible, kindhearted man who doesn’t hurt others. This photo is for my son Robert who I love more than anything in this world. I can’t wait to see what he will name me in the future.”
‘Twilight’ Is Over
While it is great that the new Instagram account is a reflection of the father’s love for his son, it is nonetheless a bit distressing that ‘Twilight’ is occupying a significant amount of Robert Pattinson’s time. The movie is more than 10 years old and is considered one of the greatest fantasy movies of all time, with a worldwide box office of over $1 billion. Since then, Pattinson has had small cameos in several other big budget movies, such as ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’, but hasn’t turned to writing and directing. In fact, the only thing he has done since ‘Twilight’ are personal appearances at comic book conventions, which is why it is somewhat surprising that he would take the time to start a new Instagram account while ‘Twilight’ is still popular.
‘Battle of the Sexes’
Pattinson’s new movie, ‘Battle of the Sexes’, hits theaters on February 25th. The film will be released in the UK on February 16th and will be playing in U.S. theaters the following week. Described as a “love letter to cinema”, the film will be an hour and a half long and will reunite Pattinson with his ‘Twilight’ co-star Bella Swan. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the script was inspired by the popular movie ‘50 Shades Of Grey’. For those not in the know, BDSM is a form of erotic roleplaying, focusing on bondage, dominance, and submission. It also happens to be the name of the book that the script is based on.
Here’s the synopsis for ‘Battle of the Sexes’, which provides a little more information about the film:
Synopsis: Based on the phenomenon that is “50 Shades of Grey”, this film will examine the extraordinary and often turbulent relationship between two high-profile individuals. Katherine Kavaler is the successful author of “50 Shades of Grey” whose life takes a dramatic turn when her billionaire lover Christian Grey, proposes an unconventional marriage in which they exchange roles. The film will chart the events that lead up to this moment of truth as well as the couples’ fight for possession of their newborn son.
The trailer for ‘Battle of the Sexes’ has been released and, although it is still relatively early, it looks like the movie will continue the film franchise’s trend of focusing on nudity and sexuality. The movie will also star Christina Aguilera as Christian’s personal assistant, Sabrina. The actress recently starred in two other films released in 2018, one of which was a biopic about Grace Kelly, starring Kate Winslet. The other was ‘Aquaman’, where she played the queen mother. So, not only is Aguilera known for her singing voice, she is also an accomplished actress who has starred in both mainstream and indie movies.
Fatherhood Has Changed The Actor
Since becoming a father, there have been significant changes in the way that Robert Pattinson interacts with the world. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor opened up about how his life has changed since becoming a parent.
“I’ve changed immensely as a father. I now value my son’s security and well being more than anything, which is probably why I didn’t want to co-parent with my ex-wife Vanessa. Being a father is the most important thing in my life right now and it’s the only thing I think about every day. I want to be the best father I can be and help my son find the woman he deserves to be with.”
Last year, Pattinson made headlines for his controversial remarks about fatherhood in a short-lived relationship with Mexican model and singer Camila Cabello. In June of 2017, the 39-year-old actor said that being a father was the best thing that had ever happened to him and that he wished he had done it earlier in life. “I feel like I’ve found my place in the world and I couldn’t be happier,” he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I have a responsibility to take care of my son and I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life.” About a month later, he split from Cabello, but only after she revealed that she was pregnant. He then took to Instagram to share the good news.
The actor also revealed that being a dad was one of the main reasons for his relationship with Aguilera. In January 2018, Aguilera hinted that she and Robert Pattinson were a couple, but didn’t confirm it until August. That same month, it was announced that the singer had given birth to a baby girl. The news was celebrated on social media with lots of happy father-daughter shots. However, the actress didn’t publicize the fact that she was now a mother until a few weeks later, when she shared a photo of her newborn with daughter Kiara on Instagram.
With his newfound family and the success of ‘Twilight’, it seems that nothing will be the same for the British actor. In the decade since ‘Twilight’, he has become a father and established himself as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand leading men. While ‘Twilight’ continues to make millions at the box office, the 39-year-old actor has carved out a respectable niche for himself in Hollywood.
