What will become of the infamous, and most popular, Robert Pattinson? Is he still trying to lead a normal life? Or has he changed his ways and reformed?

The 27-year-old British actor was in a romantic relationship with actress and entrepreneur Kate Bosworth for two years. The couple were first linked in 2011 after meeting at the Cannes Film Festival.

Rumours of a split between Pattinson and Bosworth began to spread in early 2014 after the actress broke off their engagement. In April that year, TMZ reported that they had called off their engagement, and that Pattinson was “devastated”. The British actor then travelled to Los Angeles for a “break”, but it was soon revealed that he had moved back to London with his four-year-old son, Redmond. It was also reported that Bosworth was dating her Backstreet Boy Cyhi Green.

Pattinson has remained in the spotlight since then. He has appeared in films including The Twilight Saga – Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which was released in November 2014.

Is He Back To His Old Ways?

In an interview with Esquire, Pattinson opened up about his recent break from acting, revealing that he had “quit” acting to focus on work with the U.N. to help end poverty. He said: “I’m making a documentary about extreme poverty. It’s a really important issue, and it’s something that I feel passionate about, so I thought maybe I can do something unique and inspiring about it. I’ve been really fortunate that my career has taken off, and I’ve been able to pursue this kind of work. ”

In March 2015, Pattinson was one of the celebrities who visited Gaza during a media blitz that was organised by the U.N. He travelled to the Palestinian territory as part of a delegation that also included Demi Lovato and Elle MacLeman. During the visit, they met with leaders, businesspeople and residents from Gaza, as a way to raise awareness about the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

On his return from Gaza, Pattinson revealed that he had been “overwhelmed” by the experience, and that the trip had changed his views on politics. He tweeted: “To be completely honest, going to #Gaza with the UN was one of the most moving and eye-opening experiences I’ve ever had. It wasn’t just the fact that we were able to bring a tiny bit of joy to the people who were suffering (most of whom are children). Seeing how much support there is out there, and how much good can come from such strong communities, has changed my perspective on quite a bit. Not sure exactly what it means yet – we’ll see. ”

Pattinson has since been linked to multiple women, including model and actress Victoria Beckham, 23, and singer and actress Helena Bonham Carter, 35. In July 2015, he was spotted kissing his Victoria Beckham glove after it was sneezed on during a basketball game. Victoria’s husband, David, then tried to separate the pair.

Has He Changed His Ways?

The more we know about Pattinson, the more we wonder about his character. He has never been one to hide his feelings, nor does it seem like he is now.

In December 2014, he revealed that he had been “struggling with [his] feelings” for actress Kate Bosworth. In October 2015, he admitted to Grazia that he had “started to see [Bosworth] in a different way”, and that they had “grown closer” over the years.

In a 2014 interview with Wonderland Magazine, Pattinson opened up about his love for acting: “I like the idea of being able to shape other people’s words and make them sound interesting. It’s more like directing I guess. Doing the performances and making them interesting – that’s what I like most. It’s like improvising – you never know what is going to happen. ”

Pattinson has also spoken about his fear of intimacy. In one 2014 interview, he said: “Being close to someone is scary enough, but then there’s the added pressure of being naked – it’s like adding another person to the mix. When you’re really, really drunk, it’s one thing because you’re not really aware of your surroundings. But when you’re sober, it’s another. ”

So, is Robert Pattinson now leading a different kind of life? Has he changed his ways, or will he always be defined by his scandals? It’s hard to say, but like many celebs, he seems to be doing his best to lead a normal life. While it’s tragic that he hasn’t been able to work in the film industry, it’s also refreshing that he isn’t defined by his celebrity alone.
