Short-Lived Fads And Fallouts
Pattinson has been in the news a lot this year. He had a baby girl with Emilia Clarke in February, became a father again in June, and began filming the highly-anticipated adaptation of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest in late June. It wasn’t long before the paparazzi were camped outside his home, demanding to know more about the Clarke baby. Though the couple tried to keep their first babygirl announcement under wraps, it didn’t quite work out as they had hoped, and several days later, Robert Pattinson and Emilia Clarke had a very public fight. It seems that this is becoming a common theme for the actor; whenever there’s a new celebrity baby, he’s the first person to be in the headlines. In fact, it’s often hard to keep up with all of the drama that he’s been a part of this year. It seems that no matter what stage he’s at in his life, there’s always another story. A few months after giving birth to their daughter, Suki, in February, actress Jennifer Lawrence was the victim of a major cyber-attack which leaked her private photos. She subsequently filed a lawsuit against the hackers, demanding that they pay her for the damage they’ve caused. Though the hackers are still at large, and it’s not yet known how much Lawrence might be able to recoup, the incident was still a major blow to the aspiring actress. She quickly moved out of her home and into a secure, private location. One of the first people she called when the photos went public was Robert Pattinson. It seems that she wasn’t the only one who felt that he should know what happened; many of his fans began circulating a petition, demanding to know why he didn’t previously know about the attack. He didn’t comment on the matter at the time, but it wouldn’t be the first instance of him not saying anything in response to a scandalous news story. A day after the leak, rumors began circulating that the photos of Jennifer Lawrence had been purchased by Pattinson’s girlfriend Emma Watson. Though she denied the allegations, there are many who believe the photos were meant to be a form of revenge against Lawrence. Watson and Pattinson have since broke up, but they remain close friends. In April, Lawrence was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in 12 Years A Slave. In June, she won the award. This was followed by a series of other accolades, including a Golden Globe nomination and BAFTA Award. Most recently, she was made a Dame by the Royal Academy of London.
More Positive Revelations
Even though 2018 has been a very public year for Robert Pattinson, there have been some positive things to come out of it as well. In April, he opened up about how much he enjoyed being a father. “I feel very blessed. I loved being a husband and a father. I had a lot of fun this year. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything,” he said. “I love holding her [Suki’s] little hands, looking at her smile and how she looks up at me. It’s just the greatest feeling.” He went on to acknowledge that being a parent is different than what he’s used to, but said that he’s learning a lot from his new adventure. “I think it will be a different experience for me, not just as an actor but as a person,” he said. “I won’t forget the excitement of that first call when she’s born and the fear of not being around for her as she grows up.” While this might seem like a glowing report of fatherhood, it’s probably not what his fans were hoping to hear. They’ve been waiting years for him to have a child, and it seems that they’re not going to settle for anything less than an offspring of the famed Edward Cullen. For years, fans have tried to convince him to have kids with his wife Katie Holmes, but he’s always turned them down. Seeing as how he and Watson haven’t quite gotten back together yet, it would seem that this is still a touchy subject for him. As well as being a father, this year has also seen him embark on a humanitarian mission to help build houses for Syrian refugees. Along with his cousin Alexia Mellor, he’s donated over €100,000 worth of furniture and accessories to a specially-built house in Germany. This is just one of the many charities he’s supported; he’s also donated to the Menswear For All charity, which helps promote greater acceptance of men who wear dresses, and to the One Acre Fund, which supports farmers and famersides who can only afford one acre of land. Many people are likely to sign up to both of these platforms if they want to show their support for the actor. Perhaps most impressively, he’s been nominated for a Children’s BAFTA for his role as Edward Cullen in the TV show Shadowhunters. This is the first time that he’s been nominated for an award for acting, and it’s clear that he’s serious about being a good dad whether or not he’s managed to have kids of his own. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for this talented young actor.
