The most romantic actor of our times has just released a new song called “Sober,” which is on his latest album Outlaws & Angels. We have to admit that the song is quite beautiful. Not only does it feature one of the best female singers of all time, but it also has a powerful and emotional melody that can make anyone weak at the knees. It seems like Robert Pattinson is finally ready to share his love story with the world, and we couldn’t be happier for him.
A Romantic Prodigy
If you’ve been following the news in the past few years, you’ll know that Robert Pattinson has had a pretty eventful love life. The English hunk spent more than a decade with his first and only wife, the stunning American actress Kate Bosworth. They were married from 2002 to 2007 and had two children together. The actor then moved on to date pop superstar Rihanna, to which he is still connected. In 2013, he even had a brief affair with the actress Kristen Stewart. But perhaps his most romantic story involves his friendship with the painter Vincent Van Gogh, which inspired his novel The Restorative.
Most recently, Robert Pattinson started dating the beautiful, talented, and, above all, romantic Anna Kendrick. This year he’s celebrating 10 years of being married to his wife, Rebekah, and he hopes she’s the one he’ll spend the rest of his life with. We can’t wait to hear more about their upcoming wedding! In the meantime, let’s take a look at some of Robert Pattinson’s most romantic moments.
A Royal Affair
One of the most romantic moments of Robert Pattinson’s life probably involved his friendship with the Russian prince Dimitri. The two pals had met as children, but their friendship evolved into a romantic relation when they both became adults. The 31-year-old actor made sure his family and friends knew how he felt about Dimitri, and the two princes eventually got married. Unfortunately, Dimitri passed away in November of 2016, after a short battle with cancer, which the actor mourned with fond memories.
What made this story even more romantic is that it involved two princes in a fair isle shirt, which is a traditional and iconic symbol of the United Kingdom.
A Moment Of True Romance
There are many romantic stories behind the making of the first Avengers movie. One of them involves Robert Pattinson and his co-star Robert Downey Jr., who were both 19 years old at the time. The two young men had just graduated from college and started working on their first film as professionals. They shared a passionate love for action movies and decided to include a romance in their plot. Hence, “Iron Man” was inspired by the hit Disney movie Rebel Without a Cause, in which James Dean plays a young man who is struggling with his identity.
Even more interesting is that after the movie was released in 2012, Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr. became good friends again and started spending a lot of time with each other. In 2017, they even worked together on a film, called Venom, which was directed by Downey Jr. and co-starred Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray, and Jenny Slate. On February 7, 2019, Robert Pattinson and Robert Downey Jr. were both honored during the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington D.C., for their contributions to the arts. It was one of the most memorable nights of their lives. Pattinson even dedicated a song to Downey, called “Stormy Water.”
Romantic In London
Another romantic story that involves Robert Pattinson involves English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran. The A Team star had invited Sheeran to play some shows in London, and the two eventually started dating. In late 2018, the pair announced they were planning to wed in the spring of 2019.
In February of this year, Ed Sheeran performed at the Royal Albert Hall, which was attended by the Duchess of Cambridge and Her Majesty the Queen. The singer dedicated a song to the Duchess, called “Noblesse Oblige,” which means “a sense of obligation for royalty” in French. It was a perfect way to show his respect and to say thank you to the woman he loves.
The Painting That Inspired ‘The Restorative’
The actor’s first novel, The Restorative, was inspired by a painting by the Dutch master Vincent Van Gogh, which hung in his apartment in Paris. The work, called On the Road Again, is actually a depiction of two highwaymen. It apparently upset and disturbed Van Gogh, who cut it up into seven individual pieces and left most of his apartment covered in blood-red paint.
Van Gogh never married or had children, and he died alone and in poverty in 1890, at the age of 37. The Restorative, which was published in 2018, is based on true events that inspired the artist. You can learn more about Van Gogh and his art on Wikipedia. Like Van Gogh, Robert Pattinson is a romantic who had a troubled past. Hopefully, his new book and upcoming wedding will help him find happiness in this chaotic world.
