You may know that the 28th of February is Valentine’s Day. Well, what if I told you that there was another romantic holiday just around the corner? No, I’m not talking about proposals or marriage licenses. I’m talking about Robert Pattinson’s 25th birthday!
The Internet couldn’t contain itself today as it tweeted its wishes for the beloved actor.
“Happy Birthday to one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous men alive!,” the account wrote with a snap of Pattinson, whose films include Twilight and The Lost Boys. “I hope you have a wonderful day filled with lots of happiness!”
Even the most beautiful people on social media had something to say about the hot newcomer. Here’s a small sample of what they had to say:
One of the most recognizable faces from the Harry Potter films posted a Christmas card featuring a photo of himself wearing a Santa Claus outfit with antlers.
“Merry Christmas,” the caption read. “I love playing Santa and wearing my antlers.”
While some fans may have been inspired to wish the actor a merry Christmas, others probably wished him a very happy birthday.
The account for the British actor Michael Caine posted a photo of himself and Pattinson on his birthday. The caption said: “Happy Birthday to my wonderful friend Robert Pattinson, on the day of his 25th birthday. What an amazing moment to celebrate with a superstar! We should all be so lucky to have a friend like you.”
It’s clear that many fans are inspired by Caine’s friendship with the brunette hunk. A photo of the two men with their arms around each other’s waists graced the cover of the June 2015 issue of Empire magazine.
Get Well Soon
One of the biggest pop culture phenomenons of this year certainly won’t be forgotten by those who watched and loved the wildly popular HBO series, Game of Thrones. The series’ penultimate episode, “The Dragon and the Wolf,” drew record numbers of viewers, with some sources estimating it had as many as 60 million viewers.
Not only was it the most-watched episode of the series, but it also marked the last contribution from showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The following week, the duo released a statement saying that their time working on the mega-popular series was “a labour of love that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.”
This year, the duo will finish what they started. Weiss and Benioff are set to write and produce a film about the life of Winnie Mandela, the wife of Nelson Mandela, with George Clooney set to star.
While fans may have wanted to help the pair in their time of need, they probably wished them a speedy recovery instead. The Game of Thrones screenwriters are certainly missed, but they will surely be remembered for creating one of the greatest series of all time.
Happy Christmas And a Happy New Year
The screenwriting team of Game of Thrones posted a picture on their Twitter account wishing the actor a merry Christmas and a happy new year. “We hope you have a wonderful day filled with lots of happiness,” the team said.
While many fans may have been inspired by the screenwriters’ kind words, some probably wished them a very happy birthday along with a late Christmas present.
It’s been a fantastic year for the British actor, who was named one of the “Most Influential People of 2015” by Time Magazine. He was also nominated for a BAFTA for his portrayal of Batman in the big-budget feature, The Walking Dead. Additionally, the star was named one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People on the Internet” by Fortune Magazine.
In 2016, Pattinson will continue to wow audiences with his talent and charm. From my seat, I can’t wait to see what he will bring to the table in the coming years.
