If you thought that the rumors of Robert Pattinson and Lisa Wilkinson breaking up were just that…well, you weren’t alone. The couple has been dogged by rumors of their split since before the New Year, and it looks like they were right all along. The pair confirmed their separation last month, with a mutual decision to go their separate ways.
While some might see this as a relief, it’s important to remember that this isn’t exactly the happy ending fans were hoping for. Now that the duo has officially split, it’s time to dive into the details of their marriage and try to figure out exactly what happened. Luckily, we’re happy to oblige.
The Early Years
The son of actress Juliette Lewis and British musician Sandy Robertt, Robert grew up in England and Australia. His mother was previously married to the late Paul Simon, so he has a stepfather as well. He made his acting debut at the age of four and has since appeared in several feature films and TV shows. In 2015, he starred in the critically acclaimed film Good Time, which was nominated for multiple awards. Most recently, he was seen in the sci-fi series The Last Tycoon, which was created by the legendary John Ridley.
On the musical front, Robert started off playing keyboards for various bands in his teens, including the Teenagers. During this time, he also recorded a couple of solo albums, which he has never been shy about discussing. He has also expressed an interest in doing more acting alongside his famous father, who he considers to be his biggest inspiration. As for his mother, she has said that she sees her son as a combination of herself and Paul Simon, which we think is a pretty fitting description.
As far as girlfriends go, the only one we know about is model and singer Dree Hemingway, with whom he has a daughter named Willow. A relationship with Australian actress Elle MacLeman was also discussed in the press back in 2015. The two were linked after MacLeman appeared in the music video for ‘When Your Man Is More Important Than Your Man’ by The Pretty Reckless. The song eventually went double platinum in the US and has been covered by celebrities like Carrie Underwood and Hilary Duff. In July 2017, MacLeman took to Instagram to confirm that they were a couple and that their relationship was “very happy and exciting.” They have since remained together, though it is unclear what the future holds for the duo.
The Rise Of R.Pattinson
If we’re not mistaken, back in 2007, the internet was divided into two camps: those who considered Robert Pattinson to be the greatest living Englishman and those who thought he was a total jackass. We’re not sure which side the actor himself liked most. Fortunately, over the past seven years, his star has risen, and he has been considered for several top British acting awards. In 2017, he was nominated for a Golden Globe and was also considered for a BAFTA award. He won the MTV Movie Awards 2017 prize for Best Actor in a Comedy.
It seems as though Robert Pattinson’s star is on the rise, which is fortunate for his legions of fans. In 2018, he will star alongside Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in the high-profile romance comedy, The Boat Nomads. The movie is directed by Mark Waters and will be released in theaters on March 29th.
Robert Pattinson’s Rumors Of Divorce
Over the past seven years, Robert Pattinson has managed to stay relatively quiet about his private life and the speculation that surrounds him. However, that all changed last month when he confirmed his separation from Lisa Wilkinson via a joint statement from their lawyers. The statement reads as follows:
- Neither Party wants to further publicize their marital status or discuss matters relating to the dissolution of their relationship. Accordingly, they request that all press inquiries respecting their separation be directed to their respective publicists.
- No further statements should be made at this time.
While it’s no secret that Robert Pattinson wants to keep his private life private, it seems as though he might have overexposed himself this time. The statement ended with a request that all media inquiries be directed to the lawyers for both parties, which doesn’t exactly instill confidence in fans that this is really over and done with. For his part, Wilkinson has kept a relatively low profile since their split, though she did share a throwback photo of herself and Pattinson on her Instagram account last month. It looks like this might be the start of a beautiful friendship, with a little bit of sad trombone music playing in the background.
While we’re sad to see one of the most interesting and prolific couples in Hollywood break up, it’s important to remember that this is a couple we know so little about. With the information we do have, it is safe to assume that they will continue to grow as individuals and as a couple. The Boat Nomads will mark the Englishman’s first leading role in a movie since 2012’s Walking With Beasts, which starred Hugh Laurie and Michael Caine. Let’s hope this is the start of a beautiful collaboration between father and son, as it would be wonderful to see these two greats together on screen. For now, we will have to settle for rewatching the many highlights of their time together on YouTube. It’s been a pleasure. We hope this article helped you in some way.
