As we all know, November 14th will be the big day when Robert Pattinson finally gets married to his long-time sweetheart. Many of us who are close to the actor have been eagerly awaiting the big day, and we’re excited to see what kind of wedding topper he plans to go with his beloved. While there’s no denying that the “Twilight” franchise has been a commercial and critical success, it’s not been entirely happy times for Pattinson. Most recently, he was forced to deny rumors that he and his partner have separated. Still, we can’t deny the fact that the 38-year-old Brit has been quietly working on his solo career, appearing in films like “The High Life” and “Good Time.” And what about that wedding topper?! We can’t wait to see what the stylish star chooses. So, with all the hullabaloo that surrounds the “Twilight” actor, let’s dive into the details about Pattinson’s partner.
Who Is Hezhi Zhang?
We’ve all been there. You’ve been dating someone for a while, they start acting differently, and before you know it, the spark is gone and you’re both just going through the motions. Thankfully, that didn’t happen to Pattinson and Zhang Hezhi. The two began dating in 2013 and became engaged in January of this year. According to E! News, the couple first met while filming the third season of “The Vampire Diaries.” When asked about her gorgeous fiancé, Zhang said that they are “both very passionate people who are driven by their desires to succeed and be happy.” Hopefully, this is the sort of match that will end in bliss for both parties. If it’s any consolation to fans of the franchise, it’s worth noting that even in “Twilight,” Pattinson’s characters were almost always paired off with female co-stars. Perhaps he seeks to finally find happiness with someone his own age? Or perhaps he just wants to avoid being bored for the next 20 years.
Where Do They Hang Out?
When it comes to his personal life, Pattinson isn’t exactly the open book type. However, we do know that he and Zhang spend a lot of time at home. According to E! News, they enjoy exploring London together, and sometimes even take short trips to other cities like Paris or Venice to “boost [their] creativity.” In addition, they are both very private individuals, so we probably won’t see them hanging out with their partners in the press anytime soon. That being said, we can’t rule out the possibility that the couple may want to share some special moments with their friends and family in an intimate setting. After all, it’s been a while since the two had some peace and quiet, what with all the shooting and promo work for Pattinson’s upcoming wedding topper.
What’s Their Family Life Like?
Aside from his personal life, we know very little about Pattinson’s family. According to E! News, he comes from an acting dynasty, with both his parents being professional film and stage actors. Despite his fame, he still maintains a close bond with his parents, and even helps to pay for their social media campaign. Most notably, he was raised in a family that valued culture, music, and fashion, and wasn’t into material stuff like sports cars or big-game hunting. If that sounds like you, then maybe you and Pattinson are meant for each other. Despite their closeness, it seems that his dad was actually closer with another son, Luke. Luke is a fashion photographer who has been doing commissions for Pattinson and Zhang for a number of years, creating album covers and portraits for them both.
Who Is Luke’s Son?
Not only does Luke have a lot of experience working with famous clients, but he also has a talented nephew named Griffin who is 15 years his junior. At the time of their engagement, Zhang was already considering offering Griffin a job, and eventually made him an assistant photographer on her wedding day. Whether or not the 15-year-old has been officially adopted by Zhang and Pattinson is unclear, but it wouldn’t be surprising if he becomes another member of the dynasty.
In short, there’s a lot to learn from the “Twilight” franchise, but maybe not in the way you’d think. While the series was undoubtedly about love, it was also an opportunity for the actors to develop their craft. And it’s not like Pattinson and Zhang are the only members of the “Twilight” cast who have successfully transitioned to the big-time. Remember Alec Baldwin, who played Bart Simpson in “The Simpsons”? Or Anjelica Huston, who played Peggy Applebaum in “The Wire”? It’s always nice when celebrities can find success outside of their usual spheres (which is certainly the case for our favorite Brit, who has transcended the horror genre). And let’s face facts: we all know how much Edward loves his newborn son, Benjamin, so maybe a paternal role in a Hufflepuff-taught Edward Cullen would suit him perfectly.
