As a child, Robert Pattinson probably dreamed about being an actor and gracing the big screen, much the same way most of us dream about being wealthy and famous. Sadly, fate had another idea in mind for the “Twilight” star and he had to make the most of his 19th century upbringing in Scotland by becoming a bus driver. He eventually made the career transition and is now one of the most in-demand actors of our time. While we’re incredibly grateful to this day to have something so special in our life, it’s pretty freaky to see how his life unfolded after “Twilight” (and before our very eyes). Here, we’ll explore 10 weird pictures of Robert Pattinson that will leave you with your jaw on the ground.
10. Working At A Book Store
After making a name for himself in film, Robert Pattinson decided to take his life in a different direction. Instead of chasing acting roles, he wanted to focus on writing. He worked at an indie bookstore in London for a few months before heading off to New York City to join the publishing world. He worked as an assistant for a while before getting his big break with the publishing world. While he’s probably written several bestselling novels since then (and has been nominated for a Booker Prize, among others), it’s still rare for a celebrity to get their start doing anything else but acting. It’s almost as if he has some kind of creative mojo that helps him find success wherever he goes. We can’t help but wonder what would have happened if he didn’t get his big break as an actor. Would he have stuck to writing? Did he enjoy being a bus driver too much to ever want to go back? Or maybe he’s just that determined and focused that nothing will ever get in his way. You decide.
9. Driving A Delivery Van
It seems like a dream come true for any young man (or woman) to be able to drive a delivery van (especially if you’re an attractive person and find a willing female partner). Not only does it give you a taste of what it’s like to be a real-life superhero, but you get to be your own boss and set your own hours (which you’ll want to avoid if you want to keep your job). If that wasn’t enough, it also gets you paid extra for showing up early in the morning and staying late at night, so you can make the most of your overtime. It’s not difficult to understand why so many people would want to be able to do this job, even if it is only for a few hours a day. If you have a good voice and can pass a listening test, you can be certain you’ll never be out of work (no matter what happens). So, if you’re interested in a job like this, be sure to keep your eyes open for opportunities. You might just have found your perfect fit.
8. Packing His Own Suitcase
Most people order a pizza when they book flights, but for Robert Pattinson, packing his own suitcase is his go-to method of traveling. He’ll often use one of those rolling suitcases that looks like a huge stuffed animal, complete with a handle and wheels. This is because he doesn’t want to have to deal with checked baggage and the additional weight taxes put on your luggage. It’s one thing to check a few items at the airport, but when you’re traveling with a huge suitcase, it’s a lot easier to just roll it to your hotel. The key to making this journey uneventful is to pack light. You don’t need a lot of clothes and, if you’re traveling internationally, you don’t need to bring a lot of your medications either. While it’s probably not the most pleasant experience to go through airport security with a case of pills, you can be sure they’ll be more than willing to make an exception this once. Simply hide the case when you pass through security and you’ll be good to go. It’s not often you get to bring your medications with you on a luxury vacation, so don’t forget to enjoy this opportunity.
7. Attending A College Graduation
It takes a village to raise a child, and for the parents of Robert Pattinson’s children, this sentiment is more than evident. Not only do they have to deal with the headaches of parenting, but they also have to watch their children grow up and leave home. It’s natural for them to want to be involved in their children’s lives as much as possible, but graduation is a particularly poignant occasion for the parents of a college student. This is because they’ll be seeing their child for the last time before the student leaves home to live independently. It was also probably the last time they’ll see their child smile, given how terrifying and frustrating student life can be. You can bet your bottom dollar that the parents of these young adults will have a graduation party planned, no matter what. It’s almost as if they’re determined to make the most of this time and have one last good cry before their child is thrust into adulthood. There are no good manners involved when shedding tears – especially when there’s food and drink involved.
6. Using A Fake ID To Get Coffee
If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the occasional cup of coffee, you might want to consider trying out this trendy new way of enjoying a morning cup of joe. All you need is a fake ID, a pack of fake cigarettes, and a mug that looks like it’s been through a blender. It’s not an easy look to achieve, but if you can pull it off, you’ll have everyone fooled. Of course, you’ll want to drink your coffee in peace, without anyone bothering you, which is why it’s best to do this at a coffee shop that doesn’t require you to order at the counter. Most places won’t allow you to be seated with a coffee in hand, without ordering something. It’s already difficult to find a table at a busy coffee shop, so being denied a coffee won’t be an issue. Besides, being discreet is one of the best things you can do if you want to enjoy your coffee in peace.
5. Wearing A Mask On Halloween
Walking through a dark, scary house alone at night isn’t something that appeals to everyone – especially not those who have a phobia of clowns or wearing masks in general. Luckily for Robert Pattinson, he doesn’t have anything like that. He enjoys wearing masks on Halloween because it means he doesn’t have to feel self-conscious about his looks, as he isn’t sure how others will react to his goofy grin or cartoonish laughter. He doesn’t wear a mask to be funny or attract attention, he simply enjoys the feeling of anonymity that comes with wearing one on Halloween. It’s not that he’s ashamed of his looks, it’s just that he doesn’t want to ruin another person’s night by acting in a way that they might not appreciate. He knows that some people might find his behavior irritating or even offensive, but he doesn’t care. To him, this is just another day on the job.
4. Trying On Manicure For The First Time
This might be one of the most peculiar things about Robert Pattinson. He doesn’t just wear nail polish, he tries on manicure and takes a liking to something new every week. It seems that having a full set of teeth would put a damper on his ability to try new things, because he’s afraid that his nails will chipped before he has a chance to wear the new look. It’s not that he doesn’t like wearing nail polish, he just wants to make sure that he has something new to show everyone, before ruining the look with a mishap. We assume this is something to do with his fear of commitment. Sincerely, we hope that his nails don’t chip, so he has something to wear every week.
3. Packing Heavy Underwear
It seems like a no-brainer to us that being on the go all the time would make you need to pack a small suitcase. It wouldn’t hurt to bring a few more items than usual, just in case. This is because you never know what might happen on an international flight. You’re not likely to end up in a place with different weather or an item that you couldn’t carry on with you. It would be best to be over-prepared rather than under. It also doesn’t hurt to have an additional pair of underwear or socks, just in case. You never know what kind of weather you’re going to encounter and, as uncomfortable as it might be, you might end up needing to put on a pair of underwear in the middle of nowhere.
