The “Cosmopolis” star is famous for his freaky stunts but this time he went a little too far. The actor took to Twitter to share a hot video of himself masturbating, which has now been viewed over 200 million times.

In the clip, he is seen surrounded by three women as he plays with his genitals. As the camera pans down, it reveals that he is not alone. A fourth woman, who is dressed in a wedding gown, sits on the floor nearby. A fifth woman, also in a wedding gown, stands behind him. A sixth woman, who is completely nude, is in a threesome with the other two women.

Why Is This Video Tricky?

It isn’t often that we get to watch an A-list celebrity masturbate, but when we do, it is usually for a comedic or dramatic reason. This goes for both male and female stars as it is usually implied that the person is either trying to hide something or is feeling anxious about something.

In the case of “Cosmopolis” star Robert Pattinson, it is the latter. He tweeted the video on June 23 with the message, “I was testing a new toy. It’s live on Twitter now. Please follow me if you’d like to see more.”

The decision to put the video online is telling as it suggests that he wanted to expose the fact that he is (or was at the time of filming) a sexual being. He also wanted to see how much interest there was in him, as a celebrity, and his video’s content.

The fact that Twitter users responded so enthusiastically to the offer to follow him suggests that they too wanted to see more of him. He was seemingly aware of this as he responded to them by saying, “Thanks so much! I’ll DM you some backstage passes to one of my upcoming concerts.”

Why Is This Actor Famous?

While acting in “Cosmopolis” is what landed him the accolade of becoming a sex symbol, it is his previous movie that made him famous in the first place. It is titled “Water for Elephants” and is based on the bestselling book of the same name by Lucy Maudlin. The movie follows the life of a young girl (played by newcomer Holliday Price) who is in love with a wild elephant (Pattinson).

The film was released in 2010 and was an instant hit. It currently has a 76% rating on the review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. The site’s critics’ consensus reads, “”Water for Elephants” brings an appealing mix of romance, adventure and nature documentary to the big-screen.”

Its success led to several other high-profile projects for Pattinson, including the superhero origin story “The Batman.” More recently, he has starred in “Highly Suspect,” a movie about a father who is trying to prove his innocence in a court of law. He is currently filming the movie “Sunglasses,” which will be released in 2020.

Is This Actor’s Career Over?

It’s not entirely clear if this is the end of Robert Pattinson’s acting career, but it certainly seems to be the end of the road for this era. Not only has his last two movies not been critically or commercially successful, but he has also decided to take a step back from being the public face of a major brand. He has not shied away from the spotlight though, as he has continued to post on social media regularly. Most notably, he has been a vocal advocate for LGBTQ rights and tweeted his support for the Equality Act, which would amend the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include protections based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

It is not surprising that a popular celebrity would feel empowered enough to speak out about social issues given the platform they have on social media. It is still somewhat surprising, however, that a celebrity would choose to publicly display their sexuality in such a way as this. Regardless, we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this talented actor.
