Robert Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986 as the third child and only son of Richard and Clare Pattinson. His foray into showbiz began in local London theater productions and modeling. Shortly thereafter, he landed his first film job, acting in the 2004 movie “Vanity Fair” with future “Water For Elephants” co-star Reese Witherspoon. His scenes, however, were cut from the theatrical release.
Pattinson scored far more screen time when he was cast in 2005’s “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” as Cedric Diggory. Three years later, Pattinson scored his own teen franchise when he landed the role of Edward Cullen in ‘Twilight,’ and life as he knew it was never the same again. Pattinson became a household name, a favorite among young girls, and one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actors as the “Twilight Saga”, which went on to include “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” and “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” became a mega-franchise. At the same time, Pattinson worked on other films like “Remember Me” and “Bel Ami,” and teamed up with “Cosmopolis” filmmaker David Cronenberg, who would later direct the star again in “Maps to the Stars.”
Following the “Twilight” films, Pattinson became the face of a Dior fragrance, and continued his film career with “The Rover.” He was slated to spend the last weeks of 2014 filming “Idol’s Eye”with Robert De Niro but, as Gossip Cop was first to report, the funding for the project fell apart. Instead, Pattinson traveled the globe with his girlfriend FKA Twigs, who is a fellow Brit, and a rising music star. The romance marks his first relationship since splitting with former co-star Kristen Stewart.
