We’ve all seen the news headlines; Hollywood’s highest-profile couple – Robert Pattinson and Jimmy Fallon – went public with their romance at the end of April, with the proud new father posting a stunning picture of himself holding his newborn son, Saint, ahead of his 49th birthday.
The media has been abuzz with tales of their whirlwind romance, with E! News reporting that they’ve been seen around New York together multiple times, with celebrities seemingly unable to keep their eyes off of them. But, did they really meet and fall in love while filming the latest Twilight movie?
New York City–London Transit Ride
The first sighting of the Hollywood lovers was in February, when they were seen together on New York City’s London Bridge. The following month, they were spotted shopping in Beverly Hills before Pattinson attended the 76th Academy Awards. Most recently, they were spotted on a Saturday night in Hollywood, confirming that their romance continues to flourish.
Do They Work Together?
The short answer is yes: they work together. After spending a few seasons in London as part of the Tonight Show host’s house band, Fallon moved to Hollywood in late 2013 to take over as the show’s lead comedian. Since then, he’s appeared solo on both Saturday Night Live and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, as well as in several films and commercials. The actor is also set to star in a film adaptation of the Broadway play Beautiful: The Carole King Musical in the fall of 2017, which will be Fallon’s Broadway debut.
A Bittersweet Reunion
While it’s no secret that the pair have been seen together, their romance was largely kept under wraps until recently. It’s been speculated that their whirlwind romance is in part due to Pattinson’s acting and music-related schedule, preventing him from leaving Los Angeles while Fallon remains in New York. Although they’re often linked as a Hollywood power couple, the pair have maintained a relatively low-profile relationship, speaking to only a handful of select publications, including Vanity Fair. In April 2017, they made their first joint public appearance together at the Baftas – the British Academy of Film and Television Arts – where they picked up a pair of gongs, in the best possible scenario for their fans.
A Movie Starry Affair
At the time of their relationship revelation, there were several unanswered questions surrounding the nature of their burgeoning romance. What is the age gap between them? How long have they been dating? Are they really that into each other? One thing’s for sure: it’s been a while since we’ve seen a Hollywood romance this inspiring – and it’s wonderful to see a high-profile couple embracing life in the city that never sleeps.
