Rob Pattinson is one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. With his chiseled jaw, brilliant smile, and movie star looks, the 25-year-old British actor is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous men on the planet. Since breaking out in a splash of popularity with the Harry Potter films in 2001, he has remained a household name thanks to a string of high-profile Hollywood romances. Now, the A-list heartthrob is set to wed his longtime boyfriend, Justin Bieber. And while the pair are enjoying a well-deserved honeymoon, they’ve stayed true to their pact to remain private about their relationship. So who is Rob Pattinson dating? Let’s take a look.
Early Years: From Popularity To Private Life
Before we get into the juicy details of Rob’s romantic life, it is important to point out that not all of his relationships were made equal. The former child starlet had a hugely successful run as the teen heartthrob in the Harry Potter films, and then went on to become a sex symbol and leading man in films such as The Twilight Saga and Edward Cullen. While he has consistently been one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood, the 25-year-old hasn’t been afraid to delve into the world of monogamy. His first marriage was to Emily Brown, an actress responsible for portraying Victoria Beckham in the British fashion house’s 2010 Spring/Summer ad campaign. The pair tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in 2010 and share a son, Lucius, who was born in 2012. In 2016, it was revealed that the actress had filed for divorce just two years after their wedding. Thankfully, the split was amicable and Brown went on to accept a role in the upcoming Warner Bros. film, Birds of Prey. The director Patty Jenkins, who is known for bringing an Oscar for Best Picture to WB films, has now taken the reins of the project, and is looking to give the acting world another Oscar winner.
Justin Bieber And Rob Pattinson: A Perfect Match In More Ways Than One
If you haven’t heard of the extremely famous pop music boyband, One Direction, then you’ve probably been on the wrong side of time. The quintet was on the cusp of becoming a global phenomenon in 2011 when their first album, All About You, became the best-selling record in the country. In the years since, they have become one of the biggest bands in the world, with five consecutive Number One albums on the Billboard Top 200. Their latest studio album, Strip, features the global hit single, “Kanye West.”
If you thought that the singer’s controversial fashion choices and polarizing personality were out of line with the band’s music, then you might be surprised to learn that the group’s mastermind is already dating the man he plans to propose to. Back in April 2019, pop star Justin Bieber posted a picture on Instagram of himself and Hollywood hottie Rob Pattinson on a romantic walk. “So happy to say that this is my boyfriend @robpattinson,” the singer wrote, along with a heart emoji. “This is such a special moment for us.” Although the two have been dating for more than a year, this was the first time that Bieber had publicly acknowledged that he is in a relationship, let alone shared a photo of his boyfriend. (His previous relationships, which included a five-year stint with Hailey Baldwin, have all been documented on social media.)
The 25-year-old British actor has remained relatively private since the inception of his career. While he has never been afraid to show off his famous good looks, he has always been protective of his personal life. In fact, his decision to shun the limelight and go on tour without his friends in 2012 earned him a spot on Forbes’ list of The World’s Most Powerful Celebrities. In an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016, Pattinson discussed his strategy for avoiding the spotlight:
“I want to be known for my acting, not who I’m dating or married to,” he said. “I want people to grow with me and my work. It would be so easy for me to throw myself into a public drama, but I want to be known for my craft and not my tabloid exploits. I want to be seen as someone who is quietly taking over Hollywood in terms of breaking down barriers and creating opportunities, rather than a flashy, celebrity-seeking young man. I don’t want to be seen as a fickle, fame-whore; that’s not what this is about.”
The actor has certainly remained true to his word. Aside from acting, he has also taken on a number of public service projects aimed at promoting equality and acceptance. In 2018, he was appointed global ambassador for the UK charity, Crisis. The organization’s co-founder, John Merrick, described the choice of Pattinson as ‘an inspired one’, adding: “Being a good ambassador is about understanding the issues that your country faces and then using your influence to help solve them. It’s a big responsibility and a lot of pressure, but I think Rob is up to the challenge.”
The Evolution Of Their Relationship
In the months and weeks leading up to his wedding to Justin Bieber, Pattinson made multiple appearances on the red carpet with his fiancee. But while the world was eagerly waiting to see the couple’s happy union, they stayed relatively private. Their first official public appearance as a married couple was in November 2018 at London Fashion Week, where they attended a special Q&A session with fans. In the interview, the couple opened up about the evolution of their relationship and shared a tender photo of themselves embracing in London. “We met four years ago, and ever since then, our relationship has grown and changed,” Pattinson shared. “We’ve been through a lot together. We’ve seen each other at their best and at their worst, and it’s made us stronger.”
Bieber and Pattinson finally went public with their relationship on their social media accounts in October 2019. After sharing a series of sweet and romantic Instagram stories, the pop star announced that he and his boyfriend were starting a family and that they were going to name their son, George, after his late grandfather. The singer also announced that he and Rob were officially changing their relationship status on social media to “wed”, prompting a wave of enthusiastic happy tweets from their fans.
The Most Eligible Bachelor In Hollywood
Perhaps not all of Rob’s relationships have been made equal, as he was recently in a relationship with American actress Taylor Lautner. The two were first photographed together in a passionate embrace in September 2019, and have since been seen on several occasions hanging out in public. After six months of dating, the couple quietly put an end to it in December 2019. (Lautner’s rep confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the two have broken up.)
The British actor’s recent relationships clearly haven’t hurt his ability to date, as he continues to be one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. The list of his rumored romantic interests is almost as impressive as his acting career. Among the list of his potential suitors are actresses Kate Winslet and Margot Robbie as well as singer Cheryl Cole and soccer player Fabio.
Who Is Rob Pattinson’s Girlfriend?
With his flawless looks, engaging personality, and busy schedule, there is no question that Rob Pattinson is one of the most desirable men in Hollywood. But just how many men does he date? Let’s take a look at his rumored and confirmed love connections.
In 2007, the British actor dated English actress Emily Brown. They met while working on the Harry Potter films and went on to date for several years. In 2010, the couple got married in a ceremony that was broadcast around the world. Two years later, Brown filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause. The couple remain friends and continue to share custody of their son, Lucius. Brown has since gone on to act in several television commercials and had a role in the upcoming Warner Bros. film, Birds of Prey. Since 2010, the 25-year-old has remained relatively private, with only a few minor appearances on the red carpet. In 2014, he attended the Proms in London, and the following year he co-hosted the “Love After Love” matchmaking event with his fellow Harry Potter cast mates.
