Is it really true that Hollywood stars are just like us and share our same insecurities and dramas? As Hollywood star couple Robert Pattinson and Sienna Miller say, ‘Yes, we could ask for each other’s autographs, but we would rather ask questions about the other person’. The actor and the singer have been dating for two years and are constantly in the spotlight. In fact, the press have dubbed them ‘The BFFs’ (best friends forever) because they often post about each other on social media.
Rumours about their romance began when the couple were photographed at a luxury restaurant in Venice in April 2015. It was initially reported that they were there to celebrate Miller’s birthday, but the restaurant owner later revealed that they had actually met a month prior to the photo-op at a dinner party. Since then, they’ve been inseparable.
While they aren’t officially announcing their engagement, they’ve been pretty open about their feelings for each other. In January this year, Miller gushed about her boyfriend in an interview with Entertainment Tonight: “I love him dearly, and I feel very lucky to have found him. I think we can have a very happy life together.” She also took to social media to share a sweet message to her followers about Pattinson.
The British actor, whose fans call him ‘the King of hearts’, has been pretty open about his feelings for Miller too. ‘I love you, my darling’ was recently scrawled on a picture of the two of them on a restaurant napkin. In another Instagram caption, he wrote: “To my darling, my best friend, my lover, my princess: this heart belongs to you.” The 27-year-old actor has also been very protective of Miller, keeping any previous relationships out of the public eye. He even removed one of his previous girlfriends’ name, along with her dog’s face, from a billboard in Times Square that was advertising her brand of perfume.
While some may still be sceptical about the true nature of their relationship, other fans have welcomed the news that two of Hollywood’s most desirable stars are in a committed relationship. “They are so cute together,” one Twitter user wrote. “It’s great to see such a happy and in love couple on screen. Keep up the good work!” Another added: “I’m happy for them, even though they’ve been together for such a short time. They seem to really care about each other and are both very committed to making each other happy.”
Pattinson himself seems to have taken the news in his stride, responding to one of his Twitter fans’s question about whether or not he and Miller are “really dating” with a smile and the message, “Why wouldn’t we?”
A Marriage Made In Hollywood?
While the pair are just acting out their roles as a typical romantically challenged couple in the press, insiders have hinted at the influence that Hollywood has had on their relationship. When asked about their seemingly effortless rapport in an interview with Vogue, Miller responded, “I think that in terms of just being able to connect with someone, I think that we both just have a really good and deep feeling for each other. It’s not like these fake, manufactured interactions that you see in the movies. This is actually what we’re like as people.”
Pattinson’s manager also revealed that his client and Miller have “always been very guarded about their relationships because they don’t want anyone to take advantage of them.” He continued: “There is no doubt that they have a special connection, but at the same time, they are both very aware of how they were raised and there is no ‘quick fix’. They want to be sure that what they have is going to be long-lasting and they want to make the right choices for their future.”
The manager went on to say that he thinks that Hollywood has “made them more mature and aware of what they want out of life.” However, he did acknowledge that it’s “still very early days” and the couple are “both very happy to be taking the step forward with one another.”
A Private Life
Although they have been romantically linked in the press, Miller and Pattinson have kept their personal life very private. Only their closest family and friends know about their romance. Miller has even gone so far as to say that she feels “very lucky” to have found her “perfect match” and that their romance is “a true gift” because they share the same values and goals in life.
She continued: “I feel like I can grow with him because he challenges me and makes me see things differently. He gives me the courage to be myself, to not care what people think, and to just be open with who I am and what I feel. He has made me stronger, and I couldn’t be prouder to share my with him.”
Pattinson has also spoken about how he feels fortunate to have found someone who is “brilliant” and “beautiful” and “smart as hell” who “understands him” and “comforts him”. When describing his perfect match to Vogue, he added, “I would marry her tomorrow if she asked me.”
So, is it true that Hollywood’s favourite stars are just like us and have all the same insecurities and dramas?
