Sia Robert Pattinson is the daughter of late actress Kate (née McEwan) and producer Bob (né Robert) Pattinson. She is perhaps most recognizable for portraying vampire Anya in the 1996 cult classic film Titanic, for which she reportedly received a $3.5 million pay cheque.
The pale and thin 20-year-old is currently starring in a Broadway play titled The London Season as well as a West End film directed by Jodi Lynston and titled I Am Princess: My True Story.
While on the red carpet, the London-born beauty often chooses to wear what’s hot rather than what’s comfortable. This year, she’s made a name for herself as one of the most fashionable and stylish young actresses on the scene.
Is He Single?
Whether or not she’s married to her 24-year-old boyfriend Taiji (they’ve been dating since 2012 and became engaged in 2015), Sia is most definitely single and looking for love. As she’s become an adult star and popular media personality, she’s regularly been linked to some of the most eligible bachelors in the world. Here are some of the most intriguing stories regarding Sia’s love life.
Sia began her acting career in 2015, after graduating from St Andrews University in Scotland with a degree in English Literature. While at university, she reportedly spent most of her time pursuing extracurricular activities, including attending auditions and speaking her mind. She also took advantage of her parents’ connections, landing several roles in television and film. These auditions included a part in the final season of the popular BBC series Agatha Christie’s Great Detectives, which premiered in September 2015 and led to her being cast as Jessica Fletcher in the film adaptation of the same name.
The following year, Sia was cast in her biggest role yet, that of an aspiring ballerina named Anya in Ridley Scott’s Titanic. Based on the famous Jack and Rose story, Sia’s character was designed to contrast with that of Gloria Stuart, who portrayed Jack’s first wife, Kate. While Kate is a strong and independent woman who stands for women’s rights, Sia’s Anya embodies youth, beauty and an independence that can sometimes make her a bit like a man. This makes her the opposite of Kate and reflects the character’s journey from strength to vulnerability.
One of the most striking aspects of Sia’s performance is that while Kate is a traditionally beautiful woman, Sia’s Anya is far from conventionally beautiful. Instead, she’s described as “very pale and gaunt”, which perfectly encapsulates the film’s iconic and haunting poster girl – the “bony chick” as one critic put it.
Sia’s appearance in Titanic undoubtedly helped her land the role of Jessica Fletcher in the 2017 film adaptation of Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile. The film is due for release in December 2018 and will mark the 75th anniversary of Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery, which was first published in 1937.
‘The King’s Speech’
Sia was first linked to English actor and musician Harry Potter when she was 16. A source told British magazine Hello! that Sia and Potter “seem to have a lot in common. They’re both incredibly bright and talented; they love literature and listening to music. Harry is also very secure and has always been able to trust his instincts.”
The following year, a tabloid published a story claiming that Sia had been lying to her parents about her true age, claiming she was actually older than she looked. The article went on to say that Sia had “fallen for the oldest trick in the books” and was “playing a trick on [her] parents,” presumably to get attention and secure roles. The claim was emphatically denied by Sia’s father and brought embarrassment to the young actress.
Sia later revealed that she had been bullied as a child and had felt pressured to act in a more mature manner, leading her to believe that lying about her age was an acceptable route to take. In the years since, she’s been linked to a number of high-profile figures, including musician Jared Leto, actor Henry Cavill and rapper Lil Nas X.
‘The Great Gatsby’
Sia became the face of Burberry’s spring/summer 2016 campaign and was later selected by fans to be the new face of the luxury goods brand’s fragrance, Burberry London. She is the first performer to be chosen in this way. The 22-year-old model has also graced the covers of various fashion magazines, most notably iD and Vogue. In 2017, Sia was chosen to be the face of luxury fragrance brand Givenchy.
Sia’s parents are known to be supportive and encouraging parents. Bob famously produced the 2015 documentary The Family, which tracks Sia’s early life and career. The documentary centers around Sia’s older sister, Rosie, and follows her journey from childhood to becoming an adult film star.
Kate’s film debut was in 1968, when she portrayed a photographer who falls in love with a model in the film Victoria and Albert. Most of her subsequent work has focused on portraying strong (usually blond) women who hold their own in professional and personal situations. While Kate is known for her cinematic roles, she has also appeared in numerous stage productions, including Macbeth, which she performed with her daughter Sia. The elder Kate McEwan passed away in 2016, at the age of 72.
Sia Robert Pattinson is officially single and looking for love. While she’s perhaps more recognizable for her acting career than her fashion choices, the young beauty is certainly making the most of her time in the spotlight. She’s appeared in several high-profile films and musicals and recently gained a net worth of £29.7 million, which makes her one of the most desirable and sought-after young actresses in the world.
