The World’s Most Popular Actor
Since 2010, when ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ was released, Robert Pattinson has been in the news and in peoples’ minds nearly nonstop. After landing the part of the notorious vampire Edward Cullen in the $100 million-grossing saga, he went on to appear in such memorable films as 2012’s ‘Twilight’ and 2014’s ‘The Rover’ (pictured above). He also took over the role of the Dark Lord Voldemort in the three-part ‘Harry Potter’ finale, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2′ and ‘Part 3′ and reprised this role in 2017’s ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’. Aside from acting, Robert has become well-known for his music, designing clothing lines, and for being a major player in the kinky-hairdressing community; he was even named the ‘Godfather of British Hairdressing’ in 2017. Last but not least, he recently published an autobiography ‘Crossing Over’, which has become a New York Times bestseller.
The Most Talented Actor Of His Generation
Besides winning countless awards and accolades for his acting, including two Golden Globe awards for best actor, the BAFTA for best actor in a supporting role, and two SAG nominations, Robert Pattinson is also a truly accomplished musician. He can play any instrument, as his band ‘The Robert Pattinson Band’ has proved since 2012. With an incredible voice, he has led the way in composing and producing music for films and plays and is a frequent collaborator with such musical luminaries as Justin Bieber, Mark Ronson, and Ed Sheeran. In fact, ‘Only When I Sleep’ (featuring Ed Sheeran) was one of the best-selling singles of 2017 while ‘Boys’ (featuring Mark Ronson) was the biggest-selling single of 2018 by a landslide. He has also written and produced music for films including ‘Twilight’ (where he wrote the theme song), ‘The Rover’, ‘Good Morning America’, and ‘The Lost City’, as well as for the stage play adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter and the Cursed Child’ (where he performed alongside Jonny Lauckington).
The Fashion Forward Actor
In terms of fashion, the world has changed completely since Edward Cullen first turned into a vampire. It’s no longer enough to play it safe with black clothing and plain outfits – now, the stars want to be as unique as possible! To keep up with this trend, Robert Pattinson has designed quite a number of clothing lines throughout the years, including the now-legendary F/W18 collection for Burberry. In addition to designing clothes, he has also been known to take on the occasional high-profile role in fashion campaigns, including a 2018 Calvin Klein underwear campaign. He even designed a capsule collection for the brand as a one-off project. This year, he has been seen in numerous fashion campaigns, including luxury fashion houses such as Chanel, Dior, and Fendi.
The Romantic Leading Man
Aside from acting, designing, and composing music, Robert Pattinson also keeps a very active social media presence. He has over 4.8 million Instagram followers and over 2 million Twitter followers, and regularly uses these platforms to share his thoughts on a variety of topics, including fashion, art, and of course, female fans! One of his most popular Instagram posts shows him dressed as a dashing French officer, escorting a stunning woman in a large group of women in military attire. This romantic subplot was made famous in the ‘Twilight’ trailer, where he first introduces us to the enchanting and sassy Bella (played by Kristen Stewart).
