There is no question that Robert Pattinson is the most gorgeous man alive. With his dreamy, blue eyes and perfect hair, he is the epitome of cool. He has made a career out of being gorgeous, as with his portrayal of the romantic lead in the Twilight franchise, for which he is perhaps most famous.
While the world has been captivated by his good looks, the actor has kept his personal life under wraps. That is, until now. On October 26, 2018, the English actor shared a special message on his personal Instagram account, announcing his ‘bromance’ with singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
“I’ve been best friends with @edsheeran for a while now, but we didn’t really introduce our girlfriends to each other until recently,” he wrote alongside a photograph of him and Sheeran laughing. “We had to make sure that their first impressions of each other were as nice as ours were. After that it was just a matter of time before we convinced them to become serious about each other.”
The ‘bromance’ is not the first high-profile relationship for Pattinson. Back in May 2018, he confirmed his engagement to Katy Perry. The two had been dating for several months.[/p>
Rumors And Speculation
Unfortunately, not all of Pattinson’s news has been positive. In 2015, he was implicated in a drug-related sexual assault case after an ‘aggressive’ acquaintance requested a kiss from an undercover cop in a Los Angeles bar. The police report claimed that he “slapped the subject on the right cheek and then began laughing.” Pattinson was never charged with a crime, but the case was settled out of court. He used a publicist at the time to issue a strongly-worded denial of any wrongdoing: “This is an unfortunate and ludicrous allegation. There is absolutely no truth to it,” he said in a statement. “I am a responsible and caring person, and if anyone is in need of support or help, I would be more than happy to provide it. I am sure that the facts will come to light and that this will be resolved swiftly and peacefully.”
The level of responsibility that Pattinson exhibits is undoubtedly high, as evidenced by his involvement in various drug and alcohol-related controversies. He has been open about his struggles with addiction, telling The Guardian in 2016, “When you have had as many brushes with death as I have – well, you start to wonder if there is such a thing as a perfect life. You start questioning what’s important, and the answer is simple: family, friends, and health. No one is indispensable.” While his on-screen persona often seems effortless and carefree, Pattinson has stated that he wrestled with severe alcoholism for years before kicking the habit. He has since checked himself into a professional wellness program to ensure that he stays sober.
Pattinson The Actor
Forbes ranked Pattinson as the 48th most powerful celebrity in the world, estimating his annual income at $30 million. He earned $16.5 million in 2017 and $17.5 million in 2016. Forbes described him as “the quintessential renaissance man,” citing his acting career, television appearances, and music production. According to them, “he has the good looks, the charm, and the easy-going nature that endear him to fans.”
Pattinson began acting in 2004, appearing in feature films such as the 2009 romantic comedy My Own Private Idaho and the 2011 science fiction horror The Tourist. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was released in theaters in 2012, and Pattinson’s portrayal of the arrogant and rebellious Edward Cullen quickly made him a fan-favorite. Since then, he has appeared in big-budget action flicks like the 2015 film Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and the 2017 science fiction thriller The Lighthouse. He also provided the voice for an animated Sherlock Holmes in the 2017 Netflix series, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. In 2018, he starred in the dark psychological thriller Beautiful Ghosts as well as the romantic comedy The Wedding Ringer. He will next be seen in the 2019 film Escape from New York and the 2020 horror film The New York Times.[/p>
Pattinson The Lover
Although he has spent much of his life in front of the cameras, Pattinson has always been intensely private. In 2010, he told the British tabloid, “I don’t like talking about my personal life,” with a modicum of honesty. “I think there are a lot of things that people would like to know about me, but probably it’s not the right thing to tell everyone.”
The English actor has kept his personal life out of the limelight, even sharing an Instagram account with his fictional vampire parents, Charles and Anna Bella De Laurentiis. He has however, opened up about his love interests, commenting on several occasions that he is “single” and “looking.” In 2016, he told Grazia, “I’ve never really found the right person. I think I’m probably a bit of a sad case. I’m not really looking for a relationship. I’m just looking for friends. I don’t think I’m really cut out for romance.”
Pattinson’s reserved nature and reluctance to detail his personal life have prevented him from profiting from the rampant speculation that follows him around like a cloud. Inevitably, the rumors have swirled around his romance with celebrity friends. In July 2017, it was reported that he and singer Miley Cyrus were an item. Just four months later, Cyrus was photographed kissing another man at a Hollywood Halloween party. While the media focused on the scandalous photos, many fans were more concerned with the pair’s alleged one-sided relationship. They were only together for a grand total of three months before she began dating rapper Future. He too, has a history of cheating on his exes.
In November 2018, it was rumoured that Pattinson was set to tie the knot with actress Lily James. On Friday, October 12, the couple were photographed smiling at each other as they boarded a flight to Amsterdam for their wedding tour. Their destination was kept under wraps, but it was later revealed that they had set off from London, where James’s grandparents live. The two had been dating for nearly a year. In June 2018, they had announced their engagement, which was later confirmed. They were married on October 12, 2019 in a small ceremony in the English countryside. Guests included Lily James, the couple’s parents, and Victoria Beckham. According to E! Online, the wedding was “a celebration of love and loyalty.”[/p>
Pattinson The Family Man
Pattinson’s parents are actors Kate and Michael Cunningham. The siblings attended several of their parents’ drama classes together, and performed in several stage productions throughout their childhood. Their father, Michael, is perhaps best known for his role as Ross Geller in the American sitcom Friends. He has also appeared in films such as Batman Forever and The Mask, for which he won an Oscar. His mother, Kate, is the daughter of Jane and Tony Bill, the legendary theatre director and producer. She made her debut in 1977, and as of 2018, she has appeared in more than 40 films, including the 2005 romantic comedy The Holiday. In 2018, she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the film The Lighthouse. Together, the Cunninghams have two daughters, Lulu and Charlie. They are the subjects of Pattinson’s upcoming book, Family Tree (Bantam Books), which he co-edited with his sister, Rosie. The book will be released in March 2020.
Pattinson lives in London with his family and occasionally hangs out with his famous friends. He is a keen skier and has been seen skiing down the French Alps with Gerard Piqué, the star winger for Spanish football club FC Barcelona. The pair were photographed wearing matching red ski outfits in October 2019. Aside from his professional relationships, Pattinson is close friends with musicians Lorde and Kygo, as well as fashion designer Virgil Abloh. In September 2015, the “bromance” between Abloh and Rihanna was documented in a photograph captured by photographer Tyler Shields. The image went viral, sparking a debate about whether the friendship between the fashion industry’s biggest names was more than just professional respect.
Pattinson’s private life will no doubt remain the subject of much fanfare, speculation, and scandal as he continues to evolve as an artist and actor.
