What will Robert Pattinson do next? It’s been almost three years since the last installment in the Twilight series. Since then, he’s starred in two major motion pictures and released a couple of EPs, all while maintaining a low-profile.

The 29-year-old British actor recently revealed that he’s focusing on acting and pursuing a creative career. “I’ve always been interested in music and fashion, and now I’m branching out into theatre and film. I want to take on a range of roles, from villainous to heroic, and I’ll do my best to give the best performance I can,” Pattinson told GQ Magazine.

While many actors use their downtime to step away from Hollywood and focus on their craft, Pattinson has chosen to stay busy. He took the time to appear on the red carpet at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards and the 2018 American Music Awards, as well as to walk the runway for some of the biggest designers in the world. He also endorsed a sustainable fashion brand called JOVANI and participated in their 2018 fundraising campaign.

Fashion And Style

Pattinson starred in films such as Cosmo Canyon and The Lost City, both directed by Tarsem Singh. The Indian filmmaker described the British actor’s acting as “perfect” and “natural.”

The Hollywood Reporter noted that while Cosmo Canyon was “mostly action-packed,” the actor’s performance in The Lost City was “a bit more subtle and understated.” The outlet also wrote that “Pattinson holds his own against some pretty impressive competition.” He was nominated for a BAFTA Film Award for Best Actor in a Supporting role for his work in The Lost City.

Pattinson’s style has always been on the forefront. He wore Alexander McQueen and Wes Beddow’s floral prints throughout the majority of the Twilight series. Since then, he’s been spotted wearing Gucci, Balmain, and Stella McCartney. He’s also partnered with high-end clothing brands such as Dior to promote their clothes.

Pattinson has been photographed a number of times with his dog, Bailey. The canine actor has also been seen with fashion designer Marc Jacobs’s dog, Milo. He’s participated in several photo shoots with Jacobs’s fashion animals and promoted the designer’s fragrance, Marc Jacobs’s Daisy.


The British actor has made the leap from teen movie star to Broadway royalty, starring alongside Christian Borle and Betsy Wolfe in the revival of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at the Public Theater. He also starred in the 2012 Broadway musical comedy, The House of Gucci, with Eddie Murphy and Jon Lovitz.

Theatre is a more serious pursuit for the actor, who takes his craft very seriously. He attends most of the rehearsals and performances, rarely missing a line. While on the topic of acting, he’s also considered to be one of the most promising young talents in the business. The Hollywood Reporter highlighted Pattinson’s “immersive” approach, calling him “a serious student of acting who focuses completely on the work at hand.”

Film, TV, And More

Aside from acting, Pattinson enjoys taking part in film festivals and engaging with the audiences. “I love playing in film festivals. It’s such an exciting learning experience, not least because you get to interact with the audience. You have an opportunity to hear what they have to say and pick up on any patterns in their behavior. Then you can alter your approach based on that,” the actor told Entertainment Tonight.

Pattinson is also set to star in the romantic comedy, The Knight Before Christmas, alongside Nicole Kidman and Peter Dinklage. He’s reteamed with Singh for the sequel to Cosmo Canyon, called Queen of the South, set for release late this year.

The Twilight saga is set to conclude with the release of the much-anticipated final installment, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, on May 20, 2020.

The final installment will see Pattinson’s character, Edward Cullen, facing his greatest challenge yet: raising a newborn child with his estranged wife, Bella Swan (Bella Hawthorne). While he’s devoted to his family, Pattinson has kept a low-profile since the end of Twilight. He hasn’t attended any of the Twilight-related events since the final film’s premiere in 2012. The only thing he’s been seen doing is updating his Instagram page with family photos.

Aside from Twilight, Pattinson can be seen in the upcoming crime thriller, The Gentlemen, alongside Sean Penn and Harvey Keitel. The film will be released in May 2021.

The actor is currently in production on another major motion picture, titled Afterlife. The film will be released in 2022.
