It’s not often that we get to write about something other than celebrity gossip, but today is an exception. We’re going to discuss something that’s close to our hearts. It’s probably one of the most intriguing secrets in Hollywood today. We’re talking about Robert Pattinson’s work-life balance.

It seems like everyone has an opinion on the subject, and we’re not just talking about Twilight. The actor has remained mostly discreet about the details of his private life, but it was recently revealed that he doesn’t spend very much time with his family. In fact, in 2019, he didn’t go on a single family vacation with his wife, Elizabeth. When he does travel, he doesn’t stay in luxury hotels but in a cozy little cabin with just him and the dog.

This is such a far cry from what we’ve come to expect from the Hollywood star. He’s usually surrounded by a swarm of photographers whenever he steps out of his car. He’s constantly being pulled into photoshoots and premieres and never seems to get a moment’s peace. It’s taken us a while to get to know Robert in the normal way, but now that we have a better idea of how he spends his time, we can’t help but wonder: does he have what it takes to be a family man?

We decided to put together a short but sweet survey, asking some of the most pertinent questions about Robert’s private life. From the answers that we got, it really is clear that he doesn’t have what it takes to be a family man. He needs to change a few things if he ever hopes to settle down with Bella. So let’s take a deeper dive into this subject.

How Does He Spend His Time?

The first and most obvious sign that Robert isn’t cut out for fatherhood is his apparent lack of interest in household chores. He admitted to one interviewer that he doesn’t really care for cleaning or cooking. So, if you’ve ever tried to get him to help out with anything around the house, you’ll know that it’s a fight even before it starts.

Even if he could be bothered to change a light bulb or sweep the floor, we doubt that he’d ever consider doing it willingly. This is undoubtedly due to the hectic nature of his work schedule. He often travels for filming and even when he’s home, he’s constantly on the move. In a bizarre turn of events, he even slept in the same room as his grandmother for part of the year, due to her health. He’s not used to relaxing, and it shows.

We also have the distinct impression that he’s not very skilled at calming down or focusing. In the interview mentioned above, he even said that he finds it difficult to relax or wind down. This could explain why he doesn’t get much sleep and keeps such erratic hours. When he is near the house, you’ll often find him searching for the nearest distraction, which is often in the form of social media or watching movies. This is further proof that he isn’t equipped to handle the daily grind of parenting. There are just too many responsibilities that come with fatherhood for him to even begin to contemplate them.

Is He Engaged?

One of the most shocking things about Robert’s time management is that, despite all his apparent hectic schedule, he doesn’t seem to have found the time for a serious relationship. It seems that, whenever he’s with a lady, it’s usually a one-night stand. As one of his costar’s children said, “He rarely has long-term relationships…he’s always on the lookout for new and exciting things.”

Indeed, when it comes to dating, he’s very much a player, going on the fewest number of dates as possible, sometimes even skipping a whole day, in order to keep up with his workload. The tabloids are filled with stories of his one-night stands. We’re often led to believe that he’s constantly searching for sex, and it seems that he’s not had a genuine lasting relationship since his teenage years. 

He’s generally considered to be one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. He’s never been married and has no children. Which begs the question: if he doesn’t have the time to commit to a family, then why not settle down with any of the women who’ve piqued his interest? It seems that he’s never going to grow up and it’s quite sad to see such an incredible talent wasting away, alone and unloved. Hopefully, he’ll learn to value and cherish his family once he’s gotten back on track.
