Robert Pattinson’s photoshoot at London’s Wonderland costarred an adorable Pomeranian dog and featured a number of his famous girlfriends. The 28-year-old’s management company, WME, tweeted: ‘Happy to announce that @RealRPatterson will be starring in the movie adaptation of @TheBibleInc’s @TheWalkingDead which will be released in October 2018. Welcome to the big leagues!’
Rocking The Orange Is Major Business
Pattinson is best known for playing the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise. He also had a small role in the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. With a net worth of around $110 million, it’s no wonder he can afford to be picky about his movie roles – he probably isn’t going to get much higher-paying gigs after this.
To continue supporting his acting career, Pattinson sells his own clothing line, RPattz, through his website. The proceeds from the sales go to his charity, the Robert Pattinson Foundation, which promotes literacy. The foundation supports a range of projects, including books for children, a drug treatment center, and a school in Kenya. Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the 28-year-old has been associated with all of these projects.
A Couple Of Hollywood’s Most Eligible Bachelors
While Pattinson was busy promoting his clothing line, his famous friends were busy promoting his expense account. The British actor reportedly spent £22,000 ($26,400) on a dress shirt printed with the logo of his clothing line. It was designed by Mark Molero, the director of Katsuya’s Japanese restaurant in London and the guy who made Prince Harry’s engagement ring.’If you want to be in show business, you have to learn to spend money wisely,’ joked a friend. ‘But it’s also great to be able to splash out on the things you love.’
One of Pattinson’s companions was the daughter of a very famous sports broadcaster, David Beckham. The soccer star’s representative, Alex Lester, said: ‘It’s great to see David’s daughter supporting a good cause like this. We’re certain she’ll do plenty of charity work when she’s grown up.’
A Little Glam Rock
Along with his famous friends, Pattinson also posed for some pretty cool-looking photos in front of a colorful back drop. In one of the photos, the actor is seen holding a bottle of Evian and a chocolate cake with the words ‘believe’ and ‘dreams’ written on it. The cake’s creator, Pierre Hermé, said the meaning of the inscription is that ‘anyone can achieve their dreams if they work hard enough at it.’
Before becoming famous, Pattinson appeared in some pretty obscure films. One of them is the 2006 thriller, Closer, starring Joan Chen and Uma Thurman. In a behind-the-scenes video, Pattinson explained how he got the part: ‘I read for it and they ended up not using any of the other actors in the movie. So there’s a part in the movie that I play and you see my part in the movie, it’s like a bit part. But it’s a really good role.’
The video shows a young Pattinson, looking a bit lost, walking down a corridor at the Santa Monica airport. A helpful stranger offers him a ride and, soon after, he’s seen arriving at the luxurious West Hollywood club, Abbeywood. There he meets up with his co-stars and some friends, having a good time. A few of the stars are even seen dancing with each other. It’s a far cry from the scrawny kid from Londonderry who became famous for playing Edward Cullen.
A Luxurious Makeover
Perhaps it’s no coincidence that the photoshoot took place at Wonderland – that’s the name of a luxury beauty salon in London. The salon’s owner, Nicola Formichetti, said: ‘It’s a real privilege to have someone as famous as Robert come in for a hair and makeup trial. I’ve worked with Kate Middleton and Sarah Jessica Parker and this is the next best thing. We gave him a bit of a makeover and he loved it.’
Pattinson’s hairstyle is completely different from how he usually wears his hair. For the role of Edward Cullen in Twilight, he usually wears his hair in a high and tight ponytail. In the movie, he has several different hairstyles, including a low ponytail, a messy bun, and a faux hawk. For the photo shoot, he went for the low-ponytail look but with some extra hair touches. Instead of the neutral facial expressions he usually puts on for photos, Pattinson showed a lot of emotion in this shoot – be it horror or joy.
Formichetti continued: ‘I’ve always said that he’s one of the most gorgeous men I’ve ever worked with. To see that shine through in person is just incredible. He has such a unique and beautiful smile. You can really see that he’s having fun and enjoying himself. He’s a really sweetheart and humble too – he’s never bragged about his looks but has always said that he’s lucky to be in the acting industry. He’s a really special person and I’m happy to do anything I can to help.’
Whether it’s the lucrative movie roles, the cosy friendship with his co-stars, or the cool-looking photoshoot, it’s pretty clear that the 28-year-old actor is doing just fine. He might not have the most bankable name in Hollywood, but with a charm that’s as unique as his smile, Robert Pattinson is undoubtedly making the right moves.
