As the years go by, we’ve all seen pictures of Robert Pattinson on the internet. He has been romantically linked to so many famous women, we’ve all wondered which one he will finally settle down with. According to a new report from The Sun, the actor has finally begun dating after years spent bachelorhood. The report says that he is currently dating someone named Kristen, though it is not yet known if they will eventually marry. Here’s what you need to know about this legendary bachelor.

He’s Had A Wild Past

Before he became the global celebrity that is Robert Pattinson, the 28-year-old actor had a very troubled childhood. His parents were both alcoholics and he went on to describe his youth as “miserable.” It was not only because of his parents’ drinking problem that young Robert found himself often in the care of social services, however, he also said that he had a very rough time of it, even getting into fights with other children. In a candid interview with Vogue Australia, Pattinson confessed that he had even attempted suicide once. Since then, he’s had a pretty big obsession with mental wellness and regularly visits therapists and doctors. He has also spoken openly about his struggles with depression and anxiety. It seems like his past is finally starting to pay off, as he’s recently landed Hollywood’s hottest leading lady:

Ava Gardner

According to The Sun, the English actor has been dating the Hollywood legend Ava Gardner for nearly a year. The two supposedly met at a nightclub in Los Angeles and have been spending a lot of time together. Most recently, they were spotted having dinner with celebrity friends in California. It seems like Ava Gardner is finally helping Robert Pattinson find happiness, as he’s previously been linked to many famous women and had a very wild bachelorhood. What a catch!

He’s Still Got Issues

Although he has dated some of Hollywood’s most beautiful women, Robert Pattinson has never really found lasting love. He’s constantly been linked to some of the industry’s most beautiful women, but none of them have been able to keep his interest for long. That’s probably because he’s still holding on to some of his deepest insecurities. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Pattinson confessed that he still struggles with his weight and had even been on a diet in the past. He also talked about feeling disconnected from other people and wishing that he could just be by himself. It’s clear that he has a lot of growing up to do and it will be fascinating to see if he can eventually overcome his fears and insecurities. For now, his dating life remains a hot topic and people are wondering if he will ever settle down with just one woman. It seems that he’s finally found someone who is willing to put up with all of his quirks as he looks for true love. Who knows? Maybe this is the woman he’s been searching for all along.

Who Is Robert Pattinson’s Mom?

It seems that Robert Pattinson does not get enough rest. Even before he became a Hollywood superstar, he was attracting attention. His fans used to camp out in front of his house just to catch a glimpse of him. It is no secret that he has had a rough time of it in his life. His mother was an abusive alcoholic and it was not until he was 12 years old that he began to take care of his younger siblings. Even then, he would often have to step in and take on the role of parent for his siblings. He has never really gotten over the pain of his childhood, as he often mentions that he tried to end his own life when he was 18 years old. Since then, he’s worked hard to ensure that he is never alone, often traveling with his assistant. Still, he sometimes feels like a lost child, longing for the days when his mother would spoil him and make him feel safe. In the end, he has put his own pain and bitterness aside to focus on his work and the pursuit of happiness. Hopefully, this new relationship will help him heal and find comfort in a way that his previous girlfriends could not.
