If you’re craving some romance then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a selection of famous quotes by Robert Pattinson that will help you understand and appreciate what it means to love someone.
Romantic Trips Are A Luxury
One of the things that makes Pattinson so attractive is that he doesn’t put up with anything. This was famously showcased in the recent Romantic movie, which told the story of a young couple’s quest for love. While the luxury industry has gained notoriety for marketing extravagant gifts to women, Pattinson believes that romantic trips are a far more effective means of showing someone how much you care. In an interview with Elle Magazine, Pattinson stated:
“A luxury trip is something that only the richest of the rich can afford. It’s status quo. But a romantic trip with the person you love is the ultimate expression of love. It’s something that even the wealthiest tycoon would die for.”
The irony of this statement is not lost on us. The actor previously dated socialite and entrepreneur, Emily Blunt. If you thought that dating a member of the same socioeconomic class as you was an off chance, think again. Perhaps, this story illustrates perfectly why this celebrity bachelor chose to spend a significant part of his life with someone from a different social sphere. In an interview with Glamour Magazine, Pattinson stated:
“I remember when I first met Emily, I thought that she was the most beautiful thing in the world. But when I looked into her eyes, I understood that she is the most beautiful thing inside and out. She is an amazing actress and a wonderful, kind person. So, I naturally assumed that our lifestyles would be similar. But the truth is, she is extremely cultured and so am I. We don’t always see eye to eye on certain matters, but that’s what makes our relationship interesting.”
Love Is A Battlefield
Sometimes, the most effective way of showing someone how much you care is by risking your own comfort to prove it. In the same interview, Pattinson stated:
“I am a bit of a control freak, so for me to show someone that I love them, the most effective thing would be to put myself in harm’s way. In the end, nothing feels better than knowing that you’ve done something amazing for the person you love most in the world. Love is a battlefield, and that’s what makes it so beautiful.”
If you want to make your relationship work, you have to put your own desires aside and do whatever it takes to make your partner happy. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson said:
“That’s the most important thing. Your needs have to be put back into it. I try to make sure that they’re met, but sometimes, in relationships, your needs can go unspoken for a while. You need to have the confidence to bring it up. Otherwise, you’re never going to get what you want.”
True Love Is Stronger
Sometimes, the thing that makes a relationship stand out is not the diamond or the gift but the fact that it endures despite everything that happens. In the same interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson stated:
“True love is stronger than any obstacle. Love conquers all. If you want a true love story, you have to be willing to fight for it. You have to believe in it so much that nothing can get in the way. It is the most powerful emotion a human can feel. When two true lovers come together, they create something incredible. Something that cannot be ruined by anything or anyone.”
Although, the idea of fighting for love can seem daunting, it’s a necessary evil if you want your relationship to last. In his upcoming movie, The Rover, Pattinson will play opposite Amanda Seyfried. The two act as a married couple, struggling to save their farm from being repossessed by the bank. It’s an interesting role for the actor, particularly since the pair eventually form a unique bond, which is showcased in the final act of the movie.
No Reason To Be Tricky
There are two types of people in this world: those who follow the rules and those who break them. Traditionally, it is the role of the man to provide for his family, protect them from harm, and pay the bills. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Pattinson stated:
“There’s no reason to be tricky or deceitful in a relationship. It won’t bring benefits. The benefit of openness is that you can always be honest and upfront with the person you’re dating. You’re not going to hide anything from each other. It’s a basis for a healthy, long-term relationship.”
Never Give Up
Last but not least, we have this famous quote by Pattinson:
“Never give up. Never quit. Never surrender.”
As an actor, he is no stranger to getting rejections. In fact, he even turned down the role of James Bond several times before accepting it. This was after he turned down the role of Christian Grey in the controversial movie adaptation of the book, Grey. He felt that the part was not to his liking and that he was not prepared to play the misogynistic and domineering character. While we hope that this was a one-time incident and that the actor will one day accept our invitation to be a part of The Grand Tour, we can’t help but be reminded of this every time we see him on the big screen. Maybe it’s the charm of the man himself or his unwillingness to conform to social norms, but one thing is for sure: if you want to get to the heart of what it means to love someone, you have to begin by accepting their decision to decline your request for a coffee date. Even then, it’s a challenge.
