Robert Pattinson officially turned 30 last month, which means he’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day for the rest of his life. The actor/artist’s fansite Beautiful Horrors has put together a photo album of Pattinson’s valentine’s day celebrations over the years.
The photos capture different events over the course of Valentine’s Day weekend, including the premiere of his most recent film, Cosmicomics earlier this month. The album includes behind-the-scenes snaps from the set of the film and on the red carpet. They also feature Pattinson and his boyfriend, German-born photographer and filmmaker, WAG (wife, actress, and model) Kristin Scott-Taylor, who also worked on Cosmicomics with him. The two have been dating for several years, and Pattinson has said he views her as a best friend. Cosmicomics will be available on digital HD movie platforms on February 14th.
Check out the photos below and let us know what you think: Do you think he looks like his character in the film or more like the real-life Robert Pattinson?
Robert Pattinson As David Bowie
Earlier this month, the Cosmicomics star appeared at the Berlin Film Festival to showcase the film. It was there that he was presented with the prestigious European Union Prize for best actor. During the ceremony, director Lars Von Trier said this about Pattinson:
“He’s such a wonderful actor; he’s completely different to me in every way. A true chameleon. He’s quite amazing, really.”
The presentation wasn’t the only time Pattinson had his work showcased at the festival. He also posed for photographers in a photo-op with his co-star, Willem Dafoe. The two actors play rival scientists in the film, and although Dafoe is the bad guy, he has a soft spot for animals and treats them respectfully in the film. The actor signed an autograph for a fan who had dressed as Mrs. Doubtfire, and he also took part in a Q&A session with the crowd.
Kristin Scott-Taylor As Helena Bonham Carter
While we’re on the subject of film, it’s important to remember that Robert Pattinson is not just a movie star. He’s also a talented artist. He’s revealed in the past that he enjoys painting and doing digital artwork. In May 2019, he shared some of his work on Instagram:
Kristin Scott-Taylor As Sophia Loren
Pattinson has also worked with some of the greatest actresses of all time. While we’re on the subject of art, it’s important to remember that he’s a great photographer, too. With his partner, Kristin, the two shared a love for all things artistic and designed many collaborations. Some of their most well-known works are the portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. In May 2019, they collaborated on a project to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Audrey Hepburn Classic Face Palm Oil. The pair photographed women with palmers (a tool used to exfoliate dead skin cells) for a calendar called Artistry. The calendar was limited to only 500 copies, and each one came with a certificate of authenticity.
Lars Von Trier As William Orham
While we’re on the subject of art, it’s important to remember that one of the greatest living directors got his start making commercials for brands like Volkswagen, Heineken, and Red Bull. He’s known for his uncompromising approach to making films, and he doesn’t hold back when it comes to pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable in society. That was apparent when he directed the music video for Fall Out Boy’s single, “Ugly“. The video begins with the band playing in front of a green screen, which serves as the backdrop for much of the video. The screen was meant to look like a window into a dark night, and the director wanted the band’s violent gestures to appear as realistic as possible. That meant going against type and choreographing the band members to play to the camera more than they normally would in real life. Although the song is about overcoming anxiety, the video was criticized for glorifying violence.
Robert Pattinson As Pablo Picasso
That same month, one of the most prestigious art museums in the world, the Museo Picasso, opened a new wing dedicated to showcasing the works of the Spanish artist. It’s been said that Picasso’s works were so influential that they changed the way people viewed art forever. The French artist designed the museum’s logo and has his artwork on display inside, including paintings and sketches from the 1950s. It’s only fitting that one of the greatest artists of all time has his work on display at a museum, and it’s important to remember that he was a great innovator, too. While we’re on the subject of art, it’s important to remember that one of the greatest living illustrators got his start by illustrating children’s books. His works often feature scenes from everyday life and feature characters that he himself grew up with. It’s no wonder that his art is so relatable, as he wanted to create something that would make people feel as though they were seeing scenes from their own lives. If you haven’t heard of him, you should definitely check out his work.
The Entire Cast As Max Lucado
Speaking of everyday life, the entire cast of Cosmicomics gets its own section of this year’s album. The film is inspired by true events that took place in the 19th century and revolves around two rival biologists who were inspired by Darwin’s theory of evolution. For the album cover, the foursome (Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe, Kristin Scott-Taylor, and Jim Parsons) were posed in a scene from the movie. The group signed autographs, laughed, and chatted with fans who had turned up to the event. Kristin Scott-Taylor even threw a party for the cast and crew at the end of the day. While we’re on the subject of celebrating film, it’s important to remember that the members of the cast and crew worked hard to make the movie as genuine and realistic as possible. They wanted to capture the essence of what it was like to be a 19th century scientist. That meant finding scientists who were working in the field at the time, as well as photographing them in their labs. The photos show the signs behind the scenes of what would become one of the greatest films of all time. It’s no wonder that Parsons, who plays the role of Louis Agassiz, said:
“What we’re trying to do with this film is to show what genuine scientific work looked like in the 19th century, not just what it looks like portrayed in popular media. What you’re seeing is footage of our own scientists as they worked, not just scenes from the movies they worked on or watched.”
