Wondering who the gorgeous guy signing an autograph for your favorite movie star is? It’s probably not what you think. While the Twilight Saga may be over, the man behind the Twilight persona, Robert Pattinson, continues to grace the big screen with his presence.
Last week, the Los Angeles Times reported that Pattinson had signed an autograph for a fan who waited for him in line outside a Premier cinema in L.A. The fan, Elaine Liao, told the paper that she had been waiting for more than two hours in the hot sun waiting for the Twilight actor to finish signing books and answering questions about his movie, Waterforgeloeze.
While we can’t verify if Liao’s claim that she had been waiting for more than two hours is true, we do know that Waterforgeloeze was the last movie Pattinson shot before he took a six-week break from filming. The movie was released on Aug. 5.
The fact that the line was so long suggests that perhaps Elain Liao was not the only fan who wanted an autograph from the actor. So, in this article, we’ll tell you the surprising (but true) reason why Pattinson is such a popular Hollywood signing.
He’s One Of The Most Beautiful Men On The Internet
Anyone who has ever searched for movies or TV shows on Google knows that it’s nearly impossible to find anything without images coming up. Thanks to Netflix and the internet, we have an almost unlimited source of beautiful men that can be our inspiration.
The fact that Robert Pattinson’s movies are considered by many to be among the best of the best means that there is an incredible amount of material for us to browse through when trying to find inspiration.
One of the best places to find online inspiration is Google images. If you enter Robert Pattinson into the search bar, you’ll be presented with hundreds of beautiful photos of the actor. It’s quite a large search results page, and it’s almost impossible to look at without wanting to cry out, “Omggggg!”
From the moment he was first spotted in Twilight to his current prominent role as a solo artist in High Life, Pattinson has always been considered one of the most beautiful men in Hollywood. Much like his movies, his looks have been compared to that of a young Marlon Brando and Ernest Hemingway.
A Renaissance Man
While many people may think of Robert Pattinson as the quintessential ‘it’ girl’s dreamboat’, there is more to him than meets the eye. To begin with, he is a self-confessed renaissance man, which may explain why he is so well-versed in so many areas.
Pattinson has said that he wanted to be the best in every area in which he chose to specialize, which has made him a fascinating subject for academic studies as well as a solo artist. He received a double major in English and Philosophy from the University of East Anglia, where he also studied art history and German literature.
Why He Is So Popular
Pattinson is a renaissance man, but it wasn’t always like this. Before he achieved fame, the English actor worked as a barista and a shelf stocker at a Tesco supermarket. He also sold insurance and cleaned houses. It wasn’t until he moved to Los Angeles that he was able to break into film. And even then, it wasn’t easy. After struggling for years as a struggling actor, he received a call from a friend wondering if he would be interested in pursuing a film career in Hollywood. It turned out to be the break he was looking for.
Once he got the break, he began specializing in art history due to his passion for both filmmaking and the works of great artists. After shooting To the Sea in 2010, he focused on developing his photography skills, which have resulted in several acclaimed solo exhibitions. He also began writing books, which inspired his first major project, ‘Believing in Magic’.
Even today, when you search for Robert Pattinson on Google, you’ll see dozens of amazing images of the actor. But, if you click on one of the images, you’ll be taken to a special page containing some of his most memorable magic moments. It might be a still from a movie, or it might be a photo of him at an awards ceremony or press conference. While it’s not always easy to find information about Pattinson, it’s definitely worth the effort.
Sensitive And Romantic
Another thing that makes Robert Pattinson so popular is that he is a very private person, which can be seen in the way he deals with the media. He generally doesn’t give many interviewers a chance before they are referred to as “not [his] kind of people” and asked to leave. But, there is more to it than that. It sometimes takes a while for Pattinson to warm up to interviewers and even then, he may end up shying away from certain questions. But, in an effort to be open and honest, he may also end up revealing things about himself that he didn’t intend to.
This is probably why he is so well-known for his somewhat one-sided interviews. When he does grant interviews, he generally wants to talk about art and photography, not movies or fame. And, in almost all cases, he ends up revealing things about himself that he doesn’t usually want the world to know. This makes him an intriguing subject for psychologists, sociologists, and even artists.
A Solo Artist
Besides all of this, Robert Pattinson is also a talented painter and photographer who often works on commissions for high-profile people. So, it isn’t just about being good-looking. He has a real talent for both art and photography, which are definitely worth exploring if you are interested in pursuing either of these things.
Last, but not least, let’s discuss that whole ‘renaissance man’ thing again. Besides being a talented artist, photographer, and writer, Pattinson is also an accomplished musician and has composed several songs, which he performs live. He also has his own record label where he often signs and releases bands and solo artists. All of this takes time, which is one of the reasons why you may have not heard much from him in recent years. But this is all about to change, now that he is finally able to take some time off after years of working hard. With all of this, it would seem that Robert Pattinson has more than enough reasons to be popular. And no, we’re not talking about his looks or his acting talent. We’re talking about the whole package, which is definitely worth exploring if you are interested in pursuing any one of these things professionally.
