One of the most popular social media platforms is, without a doubt, Tumblr. It’s been around for a while and was originally designed for sharing short stories and GIFs.

The site can be used for a variety of things, but it’s most popular for its “life” section. This is where users post their favorite photos from life, whether it’s from a trip or an event, and it’s been around for such a long time because it’s such a useful tool. You can always find the answers to your questions here, which is probably why so many people turn to Tumblr as a source of information when they’re searching for something.

The Early Years

The English actor Robert Pattinson was born on October 21st, 1978 in London, England. His father is the director and producer Sandy Pattinson and his mother is the actress Sandy Grierson. He has an older brother, Charlie, who is also an actor. He trained at the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School before moving to London to take on various bit parts in TV shows and films. Before long, he was acting in films such as The Twilight Saga and The Great Gatsby as well as TV series such as Sherlock and Game of Thrones.


Pattinson’s big break came when he was cast as Gaston in the 1999 film adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. He followed this up with lead parts in the film adaptations of Harry Potter and The Great Gatsby, for which he won the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award for best male newcomer and the International Emmy award for best supporting actor. He’s since gone on to star in huge films like Twilight and the upcoming The Lighthouse, written and directed by his friend, the acclaimed James Ivory. On TV, he’s been in Downton Abbey, The Affair, and the upcoming The Handmaid’s Tale. You might be familiar with his voice work, as he’s provided English-language voices for several video games, such as Ratchet & Clank, God of War, and Spyro the Dragon. He’s also lent his voice to numerous audiobooks, including A Dance to Remember by Michael Mahoney, A Voyage of Discovery by Jane Campion, and The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. In 2012, he was awarded an honorary degree by the University of Bath in recognition of his services to British culture.

Personal Life

The Twilight Saga was, undoubtedly, one of the greatest success stories of all time. The film series based on the popular book series by Stephenie Meyer became one of the highest-grossing trilogies of all time, with each installment accumulating hundreds of millions of dollars at the box office. It was the beginning of a new era for Pattinson, whose acting career had been on an upward trajectory. He went on to star in the box office hit The Divergence, which opened in theaters across the country in early 2021.


Pattinson has always liked to keep his private life as private as his professional life, which makes complete sense, given that his role as an actor is to portray real people. Still, he’s managed to make some interesting fashion choices, most notably throughout the period when he was starring in Twilight. During that time, he was seen frequently on the red carpet in London, wearing some of the most lavish, expensive, and exotic outfits. Many of these outfits were custom-made and numbered, with some limited edition pieces even going for as much as £50,000 (approximately US$65,000). After the film’s theatrical run ended, he continued to be seen on the red carpet, but instead of wearing designer outfits, he stuck with more practical choices, frequently wearing T-shirts and jeans.

Marriage And Divorce

Pattinson met his wife, singer and songwriter Emily Maynard, while filming The Divergence. He proposed to her in March 2019 and the pair were married in November of that year. As for the status of his previous marriage, it was reported in March 2020 that he had filed for divorce after nine years of marriage. He cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, which was finalized in June 2020.


Pattinson and Maynard are both keen parents and, according to a representative for the actor, the couple are madly in love and really enjoy spending time with their children. In January 2021, they welcomed twin girls into the world. The couple named their daughters Estelle and Maeve after Estelle Nash and Maeve Binchy, two of their favorite authors. The kids have already started school and will be attending the same London primary school as their parents.

Odds And Ends

Aside from his work, hobbies, and family, Pattinson’s other interests include reading, going for walks, and spending time at the beach. He also has a thing for snakes and ladders, which he plays around with by linking the two together on a gameboard. The hobby of collecting vintage cameras started years ago, which he then proceeded to document on his Instagram account. These days, he mostly posts photos of his family and work.

Although he’s one of the most popular and well-known actors in the world, he still sees himself as a newcomer. “I’m still very much an apprentice,” he told the Daily Mail in 2016. “Everyone tells me that I should know more than I do, but I want to be the person who knows least, because then there’ll be less for me to learn from.”
