How Does He React When People Say His Name?

Last year, the name “Robert Pattinson” was synonymous with fame and fortune. The 26-year-old British star was named Europe’s Sexiest Man at the 2016 European Film Awards and was crowned the Sexiest Man Alive at the 2016 Golden Globes Awards.

His movie Good Time was named one of the year’s best films at the Toronto International Film Festival and he was subsequently nominated for a Golden Globe. At this year’s Golden Globes, Pattinson won the award for best actor in a comedy or musical film for his performance in the movie Lenny.

On the big screen, he’s played the leading man in a number of Hollywood blockbusters, including Twilight, where he was seen in nearly every scene for five years, and the upcoming sequel installment Breaking Dawn – Part Two.

Did You Have A Role In The Making Of Good Time?

Pattinson rose to fame after portraying Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, and the movie adaptation of the bestselling novel, New Moon, which was released in 2009. The following year, he starred in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse as one of the main characters. Many of his scenes were cut from the final version of the film, but he appears in an alternate-universe prologue which serves as a prequel to Eclipse and the first of three prequel shorts.

Good Time is the story of Frank, a young man who joins forces with a charismatic street performer named Lenny to fleece wealthy older men. It’s a far cry from his Twilight years, but the actor relished the change of pace. “I love playing characters that I know will have a bad ending…I think it fits me better,” he said in an interview with The Guardian at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. “I like playing against type – that’s what I love about playing Lenny. He brings out the worst in people – normally, I’d say the best – and that’s what makes him so unique and so charming.”

Pattinson grew up in Hertfordshire with his family and has been living in Los Angeles for the past 10 years. He is originally from England, where he began acting at the age of five. In addition to his film appearances, he has appeared on stage in British and American productions. Most recently, he starred alongside Keanu Reeves in the big-budget action flick John Wick.

How Is The Transition From Twilight To Independence Coming For You?

Since the end of the Twilight franchise in 2016, Robert Pattinson has been focusing on his career as an actor. Since Edward Cullen’s transformation from child to adult in Twilight, Pattinson has grown his hair and grown a beard. He’s also cut back on his involvement in social media, where he’s previously been very active. In 2018, he told the Guardian that he’s not interested in being too trendy or in keeping up with the Joneses. “I want to do my own thing,” he says. “I don’t need to compare myself to anyone else. I don’t need to follow any trends or engage with people on social media just to keep up with the Joneses. My priorities are my family, my friends, and my work. I want to focus on the things I love most. That’s how it should be.”

Do You Plan On Returning To Filmmaking?

Pattinson doesn’t rule out a return to filmmaking in the future, but he said he isn’t sure if he’ll be able to make the same kind of films that got him where he is today. “When I get bored of acting, I’ll probably explore other options, but for now, I’m really enjoying myself,” he told Entertainment Tonight in an interview at the Cannes Film Festival in 2016. “I always say if fate allows me to I’ll do it all – I don’t want to do one bit of it and not be able to do the other.”

Despite his newfound success and celebrity, Pattinson is extremely down-to-earth. He told The Guardian that he doesn’t really care about how many people recognize him on the street since he’s never felt that he lacked for attention. He also said that he doesn’t like thinking about the past and what it was like playing Edward Cullen. “I’m in the present, enjoying what I’m doing and where I’m at,” he said. “I’m not worried about what happened in the past. I’ve moved on, and life’s richer for it.”

What Would You Do If You Won The Lottery?

Aside from acting, his other passion is collecting Victorian era paraphernalia. He’s bought numerous pieces of furniture and costume jewelry, as well as books on the subject. In a 2013 interview with GQ, Pattinson said he had a few years – until he was 26 – to enjoy his fame and fortune before he had to find a way to make sustainable and financially viable choices. “I guess I’ll be a professional hoarder until I die,” he joked at the time.

More recently, he told Entertainment Tonight that if he won the lottery, he’d use his money to travel the world and visit museums and cultural sites. “One of the biggest changes that’s happened over the past year is that I’ve got a little more humble,” he said. “I used to be really driven and anxious to prove myself and be the best at what I do, but now I just want to be happy and live a purposeful life.”

What Is The Most Luxurious Thing You Own?

When it comes to the most luxurious thing he owns, Pattinson revealed to Elle in 2015 that it was a Louis Vuitton handbag. “I have a Louis Vuitton handbag. It’s Louis Vuitton. It’s perfect,” he said. “I don’t even know what else to say. It’s perfect.”

In an interview with The Telegraph, Pattinson elaborated on the reasons why he loves his handbag so much. “It completely changes my life and makes things so much easier. I use it every day and I can’t live without it,” he said. “It’s the most perfect piece of luggage ever designed. It’s everything and it’s nothing. It’s amazing. It’s Louis Vuitton. It’s perfect.”

What Is The Most Timeless Fashion Style?

Pattinson is often credited for popularizing the beard style, which he began sporting in 2009. Since then, the fashion style has become all the rage, showing up not only on the big screen but also in the fashion world. “People are starting to ask me about dressing style now more than ever before,” he said in a 2014 interview with Vogue. “I guess it’s because of the whole Edward Cullen thing. Everyone wants to be a little bit like him.”

Forbes recently ranked the top 40 most stylish men in the world and determined that Robert Pattinson was the best-dressing male winner, largely due to his unique fashion style. “A lot of people have asked me about my style since I started gaining a lot of attention last year. I don’t really set out to be unique or to shock anyone – I just want to make the style that suits me,” he told GQ last year. “I want to dress how I feel and not what people expect to see me dressed.”

What Is The Most Iconic Look Of Your Life?

Pattinson may be best known for playing the suave and sophisticated Edward Cullen, but he’s been seen in a variety of styles throughout his acting career. For example, he wore a leather jacket with skin-tight black jeans and shirtless for his role in the 2012 film The Rover.

In a 2015 interview with GQ, Pattinson revealed that he doesn’t like to think about his iconic style since he doesn’t want to limit himself. “I hate setting trends. I like doing my own thing and following my instincts. If I try and define myself solely by what I wear, then I’m automatically constricting myself,” he said. “I want to be able to explore more eclectic styles. I just want to keep experimenting and keep finding what works best for me.”
