Remember that scene in The Lost Symbol when Robert Pattinson dances around like a crazy person in a Jacobean gown? He probably could’ve saved that energy, because it seems like his character’s journey has just begun.
The 32-year-old actor is featured in the upcoming film Pattinson, which follows the story of a wealthy family’s young heir who, after the sudden death of his parents, leaves his sheltered life behind to find out what happens when you don’t obey society’s expectations.
The film also stars Felicity Jones, John Malkovich, Donald Sutherland, and Michael Caine. The movie premieres in theaters on January 24th.
Pattinson Wasn’t Always Famous
You may know Robert Pattinson based on his acting work, but he wasn’t always famous. In fact, he’s had a pretty quiet career. He started out by appearing in a number of TV movies and minor stage plays in the early 2000s, including some alongside his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart. After Twilight, his film career took off. In recent years, he’s worked on movies like Rogue One, The Babadook, and The Lost Symbol, which is where we noticed him dancing around in that ridiculous outfit.
It’s only been in the last few years that he’s become widely known for any specific role. Before then, he was more of an unknown quantity, which is why we have to look at his recent career to understand who he is today. In the past, we wouldn’t’ve seen the same level of enthusiasm from fans about his acting work as we do today, because he wasn’t always that well-known.
Pattinson’s Personal Life Is Just As Crazy As His Career
Let’s talk about Robert Pattinson’s personal life for a moment. He’s been dating Kristen Stewart for a while now, and they’ve collaborated on movies like 2012’s On the Road and 2015’s Magic Mike. It was that last film where they played a couple struggling with infertility that made them more famous than ever before. Since then, they’ve been very open about their relationship and the difficulties they face as a married couple.
Their marriage was recently confirmed to be over, and they’ve been spending more and more time apart as he pursues individual relationships with women. There have been a number of cheating scandals surrounding Stewart’s marriage to Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kris. One of Kris’s assistants was even accused of being the baby’s father. It would seem that Stewart has not been able to satisfy her husband, which is why he continues to seek comfort elsewhere. There’s also the matter of Stewart’s Pregnancy Bikini to consider. The 32-year-old actress is set to return to the big screen in the coming months in a big way.
Pattinson grew up in a wealthy family and was raised in a traditional manner. He went to an all-boys school in London and then studied architecture at University College London. He’s not one to follow the rules, and it seems like he has no intention of doing so. He often quotes the poet William Blake in interviews, saying, “If the fool would persist in his folly, he would become wise.”
This has led some to speculate that Williams Blake might be the real-life model for the Joker, one of the characters Robert Pattinson plays in the upcoming movie, The Batman. Fans of the Dark Knight might find this intriguing, as the Joker’s personality and appearance are remarkably similar to Blake’s. Perhaps Pattinson will give us some insight into his character and why he acts the way he does in the film. Let’s just hope Blake doesn’t mind acting as the Joker now.
Pattinson’s Dressing And Grooming Style Has Evolved
One of the reasons why we’ve all come to appreciate Robin’s (Pattinson) contributions to the Batman mythology is because of how he dresses. For the past several years, he’s been sporting a more and more elaborate costume as the character has grown in popularity. Not only that, but he’s also started making more daring choices with his attire. The 2016 Batman film was a great example of this as he wore a full-face helmet and drove around in a high-tech tank top.
Although it’s not quite as elaborate as some of the previous Batman incarnations, Pattinson’s 2017 film, High Life, was full of interesting costumes. The film’s storyline takes place in the 1920s and focuses on a group of young artists who live and breathe fashion. The movie’s most memorable character, Léonie, dresses in daring fashion choices that are completely accurate to the period. We get to see her wear a number of outfits, including the classic flapper dress with matching hat and clutch. The film also shows us her unique style during a dance-related scene, which you can check out below.
Along with fashion, music has been a constant in Robin’s life. He’s collaborated with Taylor Swift on a song called “Out of Home,” and he’s often been spotted wearing her merchandise. The pair even did a songwriting workshop together. Musically, Taylor Swift is certainly a huge influence on him. Not only does she dress provocatively, but Robin has also admitted that her songs have helped him grow as a person. More recently, he was seen wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Kate Middleton on it. It’s clear that he’s always been a big admirer of the Duchess of Cambridge.
A Change Of Personal Stereotypes
At this point in his career, we can see that Robin is attempting to shed his typical masculine stereotypes. The earlier films in Robert Pattinson’s career were heavily influenced by Shakespeare. While most of his characters were portrayed as either very brave or very wise, the actor has slowly started introducing us to the real Robin. Gone are the days of him just being the strong, silent type. Now, we get to see a more expressive side of the character, which is why we’re likely to see more colorful costumes in the future.
It’s interesting to note that while we’re accustomed to seeing him play supporting roles, his recent work has been billed as his “breakout role.” It’s clear that his role as Batman has given him a platform from which to explore his versatility as an actor. We’re likely to see more opportunities for the actor to shine in the future, which is exciting to think about.
Pattinson’s Approach To Acting Is Unique
It’s fair to say that Robin doesn’t follow traditional acting methods, which is one of the things that makes him so interesting to watch on-screen. He often likes to improvise, and he will often shout out suggestions during the scripting stage of a project. This can be a little distracting for the writer, but it also makes for better acting, especially when paired with his incredible talent. He’s able to bring new life to well-written material because of how he approaches the role. He’s also not afraid to take risks and try new things, which is why his career has been on a steady rise in the past few years.
It’s clear that throughout the years, Williams Blake has proven himself to be an invaluable part of Batman’s life. The character would be nothing without him, and the same can be said of Robin. Despite the fact that he’s appeared in just a few films and TV shows, the impact he’s had on pop culture cannot be understated. We look forward to witnessing what role he’ll play in shaping the future of the Dark Knight. In the meantime, let’s enjoy the fact that he’s finally in the spotlight and prove that good things do come in small packages.
