I can’t decide if I love or hate Robert Pattinson. Let’s find out the truth about this Hollywood hottie.

Early Life

Robert Pattinson was born on April 25, 1985 in London, England. His father is English and his mother is French. When he was three years old, his family moved to Los Angeles, California. Growing up in a large family with his three brothers and one sister, he had a pretty normal childhood. He spent his time playing video games and acting out drama with his family. He attended Hollywood Film School and later graduated from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts. While he was at USC, he appeared in several campus productions. After graduating in 2008, he landed a supporting role in the Sylvester Stallone movie, The Expendables. He also starred in Cosmo Gordon Locoli’s romantic comedy, This Romantic Story. You can currently catch him in a film called The Rover, which he wrote and stars in. It focuses on a young man named Johnny who, along with his dog, travels across America in search of adventure. In 2015, he played the lead role in the sci-fi movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. This year he will star in several blockbusters including the upcoming King Arthur, in which he plays the titular character. He also has a role in the upcoming Alien: Covenant, which is set to release in May.

Career

After graduating from university, he began working in several prominent film studios in London. There, he gained valuable experience working on big budget movies and learned the ins and outs of the film industry. In 2010, he moved to Los Angeles and began taking meetings to land supporting roles in films. He soon gained a lot of attention after playing the lecherous King George in the 2010 film, Piranha. He portrayed the titular character in the 2013 movie, The Rover. He also starred in the 2014 comedy, What/If. In this film, he plays a down-on-his-luck writer who teams up with an ex-convict to take down a drug lord. Most recently, he starred in the 2015 romantic comedy, This Romantic Story. In it, he played a successful Hollywood photographer who, after being denied a romantic gesture by a woman (played by Natalie Portman), decides to help other men get the girl.

Personal Life

As previously stated, I can’t decide if I love or hate Robert Pattinson. Let’s find out the truth about this Hollywood hottie. He was in a romantic relationship with actress and singer, Rosie Pierry. They became engaged in 2012 and are still together. In an interview with Vogue in June 2015, Pierry opened up about the challenges of being partnered with the British hunk. She said:

“I think that being in a committed relationship with someone who is successful and charismatic is always going to be a juggling act. You’re never going to be bored, and I love that. We both respect and appreciate each other’s careers, and we make sure that our relationship doesn’t impact negatively on either of our work.”

In October 2014, Pierry gave birth to their first child, a son named Finneas. Since having kids, his life has changed quite a bit. He rarely goes to the cinema and seems to spend his time taking care of his son and doing family activities. When he does have time for himself, he likes to go for bike rides with his dog, Bruno.

Stylist And Fashion Icon

As a teenager, he was a really big fan of Lady Gaga. She even named a track on her album, She Must Be Seeing Things, after him. He has been quoted as saying: “I will always be a huge (Lady Gaga) fan. When I was 16, I designed the album cover for her as a gift.”

It would appear that Lady Gaga’s influence continues to this day. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, he named a handful of fashion designers he admires. Among them are:

  • Mikimoto
  • Emilio Pucci
  • Aldrich
  • Prada
  • Maison Martin Margiela
  • Dior
  • Mikimoto
  • Balenciaga
  • Erno Laszlo
  • Emilio Pucci
  • Aldrich
  • Prada
  • Maison Martin Margiela
  • Dior
  • Mikimoto
  • Balenciaga
  • Erno Laszlo
  • He also lists his favorite designers in the aforementioned interview. It’s pretty obvious that he is a walking fashion encyclopedia. He even named his dog, Brutus, after the famous fashion designer.

    Opinions On Popular Culture

    While he has a reputation as a bit of a troublemaker, he can also be quite the entertainer. He often uses his celebrity to push for political and social change. In the past, he has used his fame to raise awareness about issues such as climate change and LGBT rights. He has even gone so far as to pen an open letter to his fans, encouraging them to engage with society as a whole and saying:

    “I want you guys to get involved, and I want us to become a community. I want us to work together to make the world a better place. Do good and fight for what you believe in. Don’t let anyone get in the way of you being yourself. Be stronger than you think you can be.

    “I want us to be a force of good. I want us to be that change.”

    One of the things that makes him so fascinating is that he seems to have all the answers. Sometimes it can be hard to know what he believes in and what he wants. He can also be quite the prankster. During his time in London, he was featured in several high profile scandals. He once got a group of tourists stranded in a lift for over an hour by pretending to be a thief. He also posed for a lewd photo with a goat and later had the picture printed in a tabloid. Whether good or bad, someone will definitely be scandalized by Robert Pattinson. Whether or not you love him, he will still manage to make you question what is real and what is fiction. Is he really a scandal or is it all just a act?
