There has been much talk about the status of the Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz relationship in recent months, with speculations ranging from “exclusive dating status” to “broken vows.” The truth is, they’re officially a couple—and the proof is right here in their latest music video for the song “I Like It.”
The video, which was released on Valentine’s Day, sees Pattinson and Kravitz lip-syncing to the song outside a luxury mansion. As they perform, the camera lingers on the beautiful artwork on the walls and the impeccably prepared food, which includes caviar blinis, stuffed tomatoes, and seared foie gras. It’s exactly what you’d expect from the two star-crossed lovers from the Twilight Saga: New Moon.
The video’s director, Sophie Muller, told Entertainment Tonight,”The artwork is by Robert Pattinson, who also designed his own outfits for the video. The seascapes are by French artist Camille Rosemond. They’re both amazing artists, and it was a real privilege to be able to incorporate their work into the video.”
In the aftermath of their breakup, it’s no secret that Pattinson, 33, has longed to pursue a career in fashion design. On the other hand, Kravitz, 27, has been focused on raising her children, River, 12, and Jagger, 10. Although the actress admitted that she would like to pursue a career in acting, she has largely kept her career low-profile, only appearing in small-scale independent films and music videos. She did, however, take a more active role in promoting her father, Lenny Kravitz’s, 2013 album Title to be Stripped Away.
The two are often compared to the infamous Paddington Bear and his beloved English toffee. Much like Paddington Bear, who is depicted as being constantly plagued by rumors of his sexual orientation, Pattinson has long been rumored to be gay. Although he has remained silent on the subject, there’s no question that his fashion sense and love of all things luxury has made him the target of many an Internet hoax. The whispers only made him more endearing to many Twi-hard fans. In a way, the rumors may even have helped market his unique style in the same way gay characters are often used to sell fashion to women.
A New Family Bond
For his part, Pattinson has long desired to be a father and is clearly overjoyed to have been given the opportunity to be a parent. The actor is now a full-time dad to his 11-month-old son, Flynn, and 5-year-old daughter, Isabella. He has also opened up about the difficulties of being a single parent. “It’s hard being a parent when you’re not a kid’s favorite person, especially when you’re a single parent trying to make ends meet. So it was a tightrope walk to make sure the kids had the basics like food and shelter while I tried to provide for them as best as I could,” he told Harper’s Bazaar. “I think being a father is the most rewarding job in the world. It’s amazing how quickly you become a different person.”
Kravitz’s children, on the other hand, have always been the subject of much curiosity, particularly since their mother went on to marry the Spanish director Alejandro Amenábar. After a year of wedded bliss with Amenábar, Kravitz filed for divorce in 2016. The actress subsequently adopted the stage name Zoe Amenábar and is now pursuing a career in professional wrestling. Although Kravitz is no longer wedded to Amenábar, she has not ruled out the possibility of rekindling her previous partnership with the director. In an interview with Vogue, she called Amenábar her “best friend.” She also thanked him for “giving [her] the confidence to be [her] best self.”
With his dual roles as Mr. Rochester and Frank Churchill in the latest adaptation of Jane Eyre, it’s clear that Pattinson has found a role that allows him to shine while also serving as a parent. The film adaptation of the classic novel was directed by Jane Austen’s granddaughter, Mia, and sees Pattinson playing the dual roles of Mr. Rochester and Frank Churchill. The two men are best friends who live together in a big country mansion in England. They share many interests, including a love of Jane Eyre, literature, and fashion. In one scene, their friendship is demonstrated when they are seen examining a human skull together. The two men clearly have a close connection, and even share a passionate kiss at the end of the film. This is the first time that a celebrity has been able to capture the essence of literature’s most famous flavor-filled romance while also depicting it as an adult bonding experience.
As for what the future holds for Pattinson and Kravitz, who, as we’ve established, are an item, it’s hard to say. Rumors have swirled for months that the two are planning a wedding, and it would appear that their fans are happy to oblige. While there’s no question that they have a deep connection, it’s also quite possible that their personalities are simply too different to ever become an item. Besides, with his successful acting career and burgeoning fashion empire, it’s clear that Pattinson has many other options. Nevertheless, nothing can keep the paparazzi away from a celebrity wedding, and it would be a miracle if these two managed to keep their lips sealed for any length of time.
