With the upcoming premiere of the highly anticipated new film, Mamma Mia!, on the horizon, we thought it high time to revisit some of the most interesting tidbits about the international film star and producer, Robert Pattinson. And what a glorious tumbleweed of an article it turns out to be. Let’s dive in.
A Brief History Of Robert Pattinson
One of England’s most eligible bachelors, Robert Pattinson, made headlines from the very beginning of his career. After landing a leading role as Prince Charming in Disney’s 2004 live action adaptation of Shrek, the 24-year-old actor rose to international fame, becoming one of Hollywood’s most sought-after leading men. Over the course of the next decade, Pattinson appeared in a number of critically acclaimed films, often playing against type. He earned his first Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a gay man in Beginners and won another for playing a zombie in Buffy The Vampire Slayer‘s highly anticipated final installment, Season Of The Witch. In addition to acting chops, the British heartthrob also gained a following for his style, frequently appearing on the covers of international fashion magazines.
A Brief History Of Christina Ricci
Also worth a mention is American film actress Christina Ricci, whose ex-boyfriend is no other than Mr. Charming himself, Robert Pattinson. The star, who recently celebrated her 24th birthday, had a pretty interesting childhood. The daughter of Italian immigrants, Ricci grew up in a small town in New Jersey, the victim of frequent bullying due to her heavy Italian accent. She eventually moved to Los Angeles at the age of 17 to pursue her career. While there, she briefly dated fellow actor Donnie Yen, whom she had met while filming The Addams Family, before landing the role of Amber in The House Between. Since then, the 24-year-old actress has appeared in blockbuster films like X-Men and Robin Hood, garnering critical acclaim and multiple award nominations. In between films, she has frequently shown up on our screens as both singer and model, releasing her own line of furniture and homewares and appearing in countless magazine spreads and advertising campaigns. No wonder Robert Pattinson was enamored.
A Grand Career That Has Spanned Both Of Their Lives
With his fair isle of England tied up in knots and Christina Ricci dating a man half his age, it’s no wonder that Mr. Charming has been keeping pretty busy these past few years. Not only has he not been resting on his laurels, but he has continued to work hard, appearing in well-regarded films like Michel Hazanaviciq’s critically acclaimed The Lives Of Others and The Artist. In 2018, he will star as Batman’s arch-nemesis, the Joker, in Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker.
A History Of Successive Marriages
With both of these leading men having such an interesting history, it is no surprise that they share an amazing bond. Despite already being married twice, the charming heartthrob has continued to catch the eye of Hollywood’s elite, lade by lade. In 2018, he became engaged to actress Katherine Langford; however, the pair called off the wedding a few months later, citing irreconcilable differences. In September of that same year, he began dating another American actress, Christina Ricci, whose credits include the Addams Family films and X-Men.
These days, it appears that Mr. Charming is keeping busy enough with his various romances to fulfill his fans’ dreams. But what will the future hold for these two megastars? With so much talent and charm, who knows what exciting career twists these two will pull on the world in the next decade or two. Or if we should say in the next few years. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
