There are very few celebrities in Hollywood that cause as much stir as Robert Pattinson. The 27-year-old British actor has been romantically linked to some of the most famous and influential women in the world. He is currently dating the gorgeous and talented actress Kristen Stewart. It seems that the secret to their incredible relationship is that they both keep their private lives very private. Fans of both stars will have to wait until Spring 2020 to see them share a red carpet together again. In the meantime, let’s take a quick look at Robert Pattinson’s personal life. We’ll shed a little light on the mysteries that lie beneath the charming and boyish English veneer.

Early Life And Family

Robert Pattinson was born on September 25,1986 in London, England. He is the son of artist and designer Stephen Pattinson and sculptor Debi Rose. His paternal grandmother, Olga Petrillo, was an opera singer known professionally as The Duchess of Portland. It seems that it was her passion for music that helped shape Robert’s unique personality. Although he has spent much of his life in England, he grew up living in France and Italy as his parents pursued their respective careers. As a toddler, he took a liking to the sound of the language and began speaking Italian. He attended the Marlborough School in London where he learned to box, play tennis, and ride a bike. He also learned to play the guitar at the age of seven. Sadly, Robert’s maternal uncle, Andrew Rose, committed suicide in 2018, a shocking and sudden loss that left a huge impact on the entire family. We can only imagine how this tragic event shook Robert’s world and caused him to reevaluate everything.


Prior to starring in the Twilight film series, Robert had appeared in several British series including Grange Hill, Emmerdale, and Law & Order: London. He also played the lead role in Stephen Frears’s 2005 film Mr. Pip. It was Frears’s cinematic take on Robert’s favorite literary character, Ebenezer Scrooge. The actor was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of the miserly old man. After playing the character for three years, Robert decided to take a step back and spend some time focusing on his personal life. It was not until 2018 when Robert returned to acting. He signed on to play the role of Harry Potter in Fantastic Beasts: The Movie. He also reprised his role in the subsequent Harry Potter spin-off series, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (play).

Meanwhile, Robert’s relationship with Stewart began in 2013 when they were both spotted at a party wearing matching black-and-white outfits. They started dating shortly after and haven’t stopped since. It was only a matter of time before the public found out about their blossoming romance. The pair were photographed on several occasions holding hands and sharing intimate moments off-screen. In late 2019, Robert and Stewart even made their romantic relationship known to the fans by getting matching tattoos in honor of their love. The couple also frequently share cute, intimate videos on their social media platforms. They’ve even created joint Instagram accounts where they expose each other’s personalities, their love for fashion, and their support of one another’s careers. The world was finally given a peek into Stewart’s and Pattinson’s surprisingly candid and open-hearted relationship when they were featured on the cover of Vogue Italia in March 2020.


Besides his brilliant blue eyes, Robert Pattinson is most often classified as an extremely charming and likeable individual. Some even go as far to say that he is a born comedian. This charming quality was on full display when he visited the Hollywood Christmas Parade late last year. Dressed in a charming little suit, Robert stood out among the sea of celebrity attendees. He couldn’t help but crack jokes as he walked. His sharp wit and dashing good looks made many female co-workers, fans, and even family members blush. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to Robert’s charming persona. He has been known to be temperamental, insecure, and even violent at times. It is important to remember that we are dealing with a very troubled and complex man. The one constant in his life is obviously Kristen Stewart. She is the only person who can tame that side of him. Otherwise, he could be a dangerous person to know.

Romantic Life

Romantic rumors surrounding Robert Pattinson began a few years back when he was linked to the gorgeous and talented Elle MacLeman. They were reportedly an item for a brief time in 2016. For those who love a good mystery, it should come as no surprise that MacLeman has since been named as one of the women allegedly involved in the so-called “Pattinson curse.” In the fall of 2018, the actor was linked to yet another gorgeous and talented woman, FKA Twigs. They were spotted holding hands and cosying up together at various events. Robert has never publicly confirmed or denied these rumors. Instead, he has usually brushed them off, saying that he doesn’t concern himself with such things. Even his co-stars from the Twilight film franchise have admitted to feeling like they have to be protective of him, especially after the intense media scrutiny that follows him around like a pack of hungry wolves.


There have been multiple rumors surrounding Robert Pattinson’s struggle with addiction. He has long been known to be a particularly heavy user of opioids and cocaine. It was initially claimed that he had tried to kick his addiction to prescription drugs by going cold turkey. However, that apparently isn’t the case. He has been in and out of rehab several times and continues to battle his addiction. Despite his admitted addiction, it is somewhat ironic that Robert’s most significant contribution to society may be his acting career. It’s not uncommon for celebrities to be drawn to struggling with addiction. The opportunity to explore complex characters and delve into disturbing topics may be the key to unlocking their problems. Some may see this as a chance to do some good in the world. We’ll never know, but that may be the case for Stephen Paddock as well. He is best known for being the lone gunman who committed the Oct. 1, 2019, massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas. After the event, he wrote a goodbye letter to his family, saying that he hoped they would forgive him.


It’s important to keep in mind that we are talking about a very, very private person here. No details surrounding Robert Pattinson’s health have ever been made public. However, he has long been dogged by rumors that he is HIV positive. In 2011, he had to make an extremely brave statement to put these rumors to rest. Wearing a designer suit and sparkling shoes, the star addressed the media to “confirm my status as a vocal supporter of Aids awareness.” He went on to add that he hoped his “recently discovered” infection didn’t define him as a person. This was a very telling statement from a very private individual. When you’re as handsome and charming as Robert Pattinson, it’s easy to let your health issues go unnoticed. As far back as 2014, he was admitted to a London hospital for exhaustion and subsequently released. He has not elaborated on what was causing his extreme fatigue. In October 2019, he was photographed holding hands with a mystery woman at a Halloween party in London. They were later dubbed the “Pattinson twins” due to their strikingly similar appearance.

In early 2020, Robert announced that he had been in a car accident that left him with minor injuries. He subsequently went into a bit of a Twitter frenzy, revealing the make and model of the vehicle and detailing his accident. He also shared a photo of himself in a hospital bed with a heavily bandaged hand as an added hint. Since this is a highly personal and often secretive area of his life, it is entirely possible that this was accident-related and nothing more. It’s also possible that his hand was injured while performing stunts for one of his upcoming films. Whatever the case may be, we will likely never know the truth about Robert’s accident.


Aside from his acting career, Robert has demonstrated notable skill as a filmmaker, with his debut film being the highly acclaimed Edward The Elder. He also directed and starred in the film adaptation of the Stephen King novella, The Gunslinger. Other than that, he has mostly focused on acting, with the exception of the 2019 film, The Lighthouse, in which he played alongside Willem Dafoe and Natasha Lyonne. We can only assume that Robert’s busy schedule is because his personal life is so fascinating. It’s not often that we get to peek into someone’s private life and learn so much about their character and the issues that concern them. For Robert, it seems that keeping his personal life private is a way of life, not just a public relations choice. There is a reason why he hasn’t given many interviews or spoken about certain topics at length. It is because he doesn’t want to ruin any of the mysteries. At least not yet.
