If you follow the rich and famous on social media, you probably know that Rob Pattinson, the actor who plays the leading man in the blockbuster movie, The Twilight Saga, recently purchased a lavish manor in the English countryside. Well, he actually spent a pretty penny for this seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom monstrosity, which features a nine-hole golf course, a wine cellar, and a fully equipped kitchen. But, considering he’s a millionaire with an alleged net worth of over $100 million, what’s his problem? He doesn’t seem to have one.
Keeping Up With The Joneses
While most people might be envious of Rob’s newfound wealth, others feel sorry for him. After all, he’s not exactly hurting for money. He’s the second-richest heir in Europe after the Prince of Wales and, according to the most recent figures, he owns a $25.5 million mansion in London. Talk about keeping up with the Joneses. This was the home of the Monarchs and Royals for centuries.
So what happened? How did one of the most sought-after leading men in Hollywood end up in a bizarre dispute over a country estate? Well, the details are pretty weird. It actually began when a film company purchased the property in 2007 for $12 million. Apparently, the owner of the company at the time, Malcolm Jones, fell ill and was unable to live in the manor. He left it to his cousin, James, who then put the property on the market. The asking price was $16.5 million, which clearly indicates that there was a bit of an increase in value over the years. However, the purchaser wasn’t exactly what the seller wanted. He wanted a complete overhaul and, considering the size of the asking price, he must have believed that he could get it done for less money. So, he made an offer of $14.5 million, which was accepted.
More Than Meets The Eye
It’s not like Rob doesn’t have enough money. He’s got more than enough to buy whatever he wants. In fact, he could buy more than what meets the eye. Malcolm Jones, the owner of the manor, bequeathed a hefty sum of money to Pattinson in his will. It has been revealed that Malcolm left him a $25.5 million mansion in London and a $12.5 million fortune in a bank account. So, it’s no wonder that he purchased the country pile. He could have bought a superyacht or a private island for the price that he spent on the manor.
An Opportunity To Refine His Lifestyle
It’s probably one of the best things that ever happened to Rob. He got a chance to indulge in all of his favorite pastimes – golf, sailing, and spending quality time with his family – without having to worry about finances. Of course, he has to pay for the things that he buys with his money. He doesn’t get that for free. He has to pay for staff, food, and lodging. But, considering what he gets back, it’s not like he’s doing too badly. He could buy a high-end vehicle and live in luxury for the rest of his life. It would all be paid back in no time, with the help of his trusty wallet.
As strange as this whole situation is, it does make sense. It’s not like Rob lacks for women. He’s been linked to some gorgeous Hollywood stars. He’s got a good amount of fame and, considering that he’s one of the most successful and wealthiest young actors of our times, it’s clear that women are lining up to date him. However, he’s not interested in a traditional dating lifestyle. He wants to spend his time with the people he loves the most, which is his family. He wants to be there for them as much as he can, regardless of the social status that his new money would bring.
An Opportunity To Inspire Envy
While some might feel sorry for Rob, the truth is that he’s doing exactly what he wants to do. He’s not interested in impressing anyone with his wealth. He just wants to live his life the way that he wants to live it. As for his fans, it’s clear that they’re inspired by his work. He plays a dangerous and complex character, which has led some to argue that he doesn’t get enough credit for his acting ability. So, while some feel sorry for the actor, it’s likely that he inspires a lot of envy. Just look at his latest film, Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s clear that he poured his heart and soul into that role and it shows. He even named a character after himself, which is rare for an actor. In fact, it’s the only time that he’s ever done that. The fact that he was able to create such a realistic character and have the audience believe in it shows that he’s incredibly talented.
It’s not just about the money. Family is one of the greatest driving forces behind Rob’s success. Obviously, he has to provide for his family, which is why he invests in high-end properties, which he then mortgages. But, he’s always been close to his family and is protective of them, especially now that he has a fortune. It’s no secret that he cares deeply about his relatives. His mother, Katherine, is the matriarch of the family and he often speaks about how much he admires and respects her.
It’s not just family either. Rob’s father, Andrew, is a photographer and director who founded the prestigious photography agency, Andrew Stephenson & Co. The agency represents some of the biggest brands in the world, including Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton. So, it’s not hard to see how much of an influence his father had on his career. It’s no wonder that he admires him so much. It’s clear that all of this respect goes both ways. As for Rob’s brother, Charlie, he’s an award-winning film producer who’s worked with some of the biggest directors in Hollywood, including Ridley Scott and Tony Scott. It was actually Charlie who introduced Robbie to the entertainment industry. He gave him his first big break, which led to his roles in the Twilight Saga and Now You See Me. He also produced the actor’s wedding to longtime partner, Kristen Stewart, in 2015.
A Rich History
Rob has a rich history. He comes from an acting family. His mother is a renowned television and film actress, while his father is a photographer and director. So it’s not all that surprising that he pursued an acting career. He definitely has the looks and the charm for it. But, he also wanted to be different. He didn’t want to be associated with his family’s acting legacy. He wanted to carve out his own path in life. And, considering that he’s not your typical leading man, he’s proven to be quite the success.
And, considering all of the success that he’s had, it’s clear that he’s happy. He spends a lot of time with his family and friends and spends the rest of his time pursuing his passions, which include golf, sailing, and expensive hobbies. He doesn’t have time to look back. He has too much to look forward to. He has a new movie coming out that his fans have been waiting for and he has a new mansion to move into.
