The news of Robert Pattinson’s latest relationship has been met with widespread public interest. The actor, best known for his role in the Twilight films, has reportedly been dating model and photographer Olivia Wilde for more than a year. Though they have kept their relationship private, their Instagram posts together have helped fuel the fire of speculation.
In a recent interview with Red magazine, Pattinson opened up about his sexuality and his recent dating history. Here are the highlights:
Is He Gay?
In the interview, the British actor said:
“I don’t think so. I don’t really know. I like women. I find them much more beautiful and interesting than men. I don’t know if that’s just me or whether it’s because I’ve never really been attracted to men. I don’t know.”
“I think it’s probably a bit of both. I don’t feel that I’ve ever been attracted to another man and it’s not something that I’ve ever thought about. I’ve never really felt like I’ve been missing out by not exploring my sexual side more. So I guess that makes me a little bit gay, doesn’t it?”
Pattinson also discussed how his previous relationships have impacted his newfound fame. “Being in a celebrity relationship is really strange. I never expected that I would become famous and that my private life would be publicized. But it’s weird. I don’t feel like I’ve changed as a person in any way because of my fame. It’s just made me more conscious of my private life.”
Does He Like Women?
When asked if he likes women, Pattinson replied:
“Yes, very much so. I like the feeling of a woman’s body next to mine. I don’t know if I’ve ever actually said this publicly, but I have always felt that way. It’s one of the reasons why I don’t really like being separated from a woman for too long. Even when I’m not attracted to them physically, I still feel like I need them around just to make me feel complete.”
Pattinson went on to discuss the pressures that come with dating a famous person. “It’s obviously more complicated when you’re dating a celebrity. People will always have opinions about you and your relationship, whether they be positive or negative. There will always be someone who doesn’t like you because of who you’re dating or what you’re doing. It can be difficult to escape that sort of fame when you’re already well-known. Even if your relationship is private, people will still talk.”
