Entertainment Robert Pattinson... For Your Eyes Only By Charlotte Duck 03 Feb 2014 From growing-up to girlfriends, we chart the Twilight star's rise to fame Robert Thomas Pattinson was born in Barnes, London on 13 May 1986 to Claire, who worked for a model agency, and Richard, who imported vintage cars. http://ry-diplomer.com источник majbutne.com.ua www.maxformer.com/elektricheskie-pogruzchiki The baby of the family, Rob has two older sisters, Lizzy and Victoria, who used to dress him up in girls’ clothes and introduce him to friends as Claudia. But then Rob discovered hair gel and gorgeousness. Robert attended the independent Harrodian School, where his favourite subject was English. He used his salary from his first acting job, in the TV film Ring of the Nibelungs, to pay his own school fees. Rob started modelling at the age of 12 but despite his initial flurry of work, the actor admitted it dried up as he got older. “I had the most unsuccessful modelling career.” What? Were the casting agents blind? Rob is so much more than a pretty face. He began learning the piano aged three and the guitar at five. His songs Never Think and Let Me Sign appear on the Twilight soundtrack but the star said his band, Bad Girls, never recorded anything until then. "Music is my back-up plan if acting fails,” he says, but we don’t think there is any chance of that happening. Rob’s not the only talented one in his family. Sister Lizzy is a singer and scored three top 20 UK hits. See the resemblance? Robert starred in The Bad Mother’s Handbook, a one-off TV drama with Catherine Tate in 2007. He played the lovable yet nerdy Daniel Gale. Thank God he got a haircut, that’s all we can say! Of course, Robert famously came to our attention in Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire. To make sure he got the role as the athletic Cedric Diggory, R-Patz pretended he was a proficient snowboarder and footballer. Apparently the slightly less energetic darts and pool are more to his thing. Rob’s Harry Potter co-star Emma Watson admitted she always knew he would be famous. “He is a very, very handsome man, so I’m not too surprised,” she said, before revealing: “I haven’t seen the film.” Surely there’s a DVD in Hogwarts somewhere she could use? But it was his role as the vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight that saw R-Patz find worldwide fame. Picked for the part from 3,000 hopefuls, the English actor had tweenies all over the world wishing he would bite them. R-Patz went from blockbuster to art-house in 2008, when he appeared in Little Ashes, a biopic about the life of the bisexual Spanish painter Salvador Dali. The star admitted he became obsessed with the artist during filming. “I read every biography I could get a hold of. He was the most bizarre, complex man, but in the end I felt I could relate to him. He was basically incredibly shy.” So what are Rob’s vital statistics? Well, he’s 6ft 1in, supports Arsenal Football Club and cites Jack Nicholson as his acting inspiration. And what about women? Well, Robert dated Nina Schubert while they were both at school in London. She’s now an abstract painter and the actor has commissioned her to work on a portrait of him. However, in 2009, word on the street was that the actor dated 21-year-old Brazilian model Anne Schoenberger. Robert started dating his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart shortly after filming on the first film finished. But the pair were keen to keep their relationship under wraps and out of the papers. Robert and Kristen Stewart teased fans when they won the Best Kiss at the MTV Awards by almost, almost kissing… But not quite. Robert Pattinson is renowned for his trademark messy hair but there’s just one thing putting us off the thought of running our fingers through those lovely locks – according to a crew-member, the 24-year-old never showers and “completely reeks”. Come on, Rob! Despite being a Hollywood movie-star, Robert still has the odd pang of insecurity. His Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen) revealed: "Rob's kind of shy, and he does this thing — when he's really shy or when someone asks him something, he lowers his head down, and the girls love it!" No one would have known who you were talking about if you mentioned Robert Pattinson at the Oscars in 2008, but, in 2009, the actor’s name was on everyone’s lips as he turned up looking dapper in a tux to present the night’s romance film segment. Rob reprised his role as Edward Cullen in the second Twilight film, New Moon, in November 2009. Fans were treated to seeing the actor topless for the first time and a steamy on-screen kiss with Kristen Stewart. Since appearing in Twilight, Robert Pattinson has been bombarded by fans. The actor narrowly missed getting injured in 2009 when screaming crowds in NY forced him to cross the road, where he was clipped on the hip by a moving cab. Saying that, Rob doesn’t have such a bad life. The actor reportedly earned $10m from New Moon and he got to hang out in the A-list sunshine at Cannes. Just a lovely picture of Rob to set our pulses racing… At last! Robert gave the people what they wanted when he snogged Kristen Stewart on stage. The pair won the Best Kiss gong (again) at the MTV Movie Awards 2010. And that’s not the only award he’s won. Robert Pattinson beat classic hotties Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and David Beckham to nab the top spot in GLAMOUR.COM’s sexiest men poll three years running! Rob took a break from the Twilight films in 2010 to make Remember Me with Emilie de Ravin and Pierce Brosnan (as his dad). Set in NY, the movie centred on two lovers brought together by family tragedy. Both Kristen Stewart and Rob continued to dodge questions on the nature of their relationship but, in October 2010, they were spotted leaving a restaurant after an intimate date. New Moon left us thirsty for more R-Patz and our wish was granted with the release of the third Twilight film, Eclipse, in November 2010. Robert looked extra buff in Eclipse thanks to personal trainer Harley Pasternak (wouldn’t you love his job?) and R-Patz was filmed jogging to “improve my form”. Can you really improve on perfection, Rob? Even celebrities aren’t immune to his charms. Katy Perry wore this geek get-up to get a snap with the Twilight hottie, while Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon also admire Robert Pattinson's gorgeous good looks. Join the queue, ladies! When you look this good, you can get away with admitting you’re a massive fan of Antiques Roadshow. "I love the faces of the posh people when they think that something is going to be valued at more than it is, and when it's under they are gutted,” gushed Rob. In a bid to avoid attention, Rob tried to hide his beautiful face under a beard in November 2010. It didn't work - we could spot him a mile off! He wasn't up for an award but Rob made an appearance as presenter at the 2011 Golden Globes. Want to impress Robert Pattinson? Stock up on Hobnobs – they’re his favourite. Being a good cook might help too, as the hottie admitted, “I can’t cook myself. I only just manage to make some toast.” That’s okay, Rob - we still love you. In May 2011 Rob appeared as a veterinary student who falls for a circus performer in Water For Elephants, alongside Reese Witherspoon. In a bizarre twist, Rob played Reese's son in the 2004 film adaptation of Vanity Fair - although he was cut from the final edit. R-Patz sans clothes while filming Breaking Dawn? Check out that bod. And Kristen’s not looking so bad, either. Reow! Edward and Bella get steamy during the honeymoon scene on the set of Breaking Dawn. "When we start the kissing scenes I forget we're surrounded by a load of people. I actually end up getting really carried away,” reveals Rob. Oh. My. Gawd. Rob showed his flexibility when filming costume drama Bel Ami in Hungary in the spring of 2010. The flick saw Rob portray a “completely amoral” man (his words), in 19th century Paris, opposite Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. The world was shocked in the summer of 2012, when photos emerged of Kristen Stewart kissing the married director of Snow White And The Huntsman. The actress quickly released an apology to Rob. "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," she said. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." But the pair reunited on and off the red carpet for the world promotion of Breaking Dawn 2. But it didn’t last and Rob and Kristen split in May 2013. Neither has spoken of the break-up in the press, although the actor did tell an Australian magazine: "I don't ever feel the need to forgive or expect people to be. I judge people on their actions… I don't really care if it's wrong or right, I give them the benefit of the doubt. If they do something I can't be bothered to deal with, I just cut them out.” Ouch! The break-up was made all the more final when Rob put the Los Feliz mansion he shared with Kristen up for sale. The colonial-style pad comes with a state-of-the-art security system and The Big Band Theory’s Jim Parsons snapped it up. A newly-single R-Patz spent much of his spare time hanging out with his long-time pal, Tom Sturridge and his fiancée Sienna Miller. Here they are celebrating Tom’s bday in New York. But it wasn’t long before the press started alleging that Rob had got back in the dating game. Elvis’ grand-daughter Riley Keough had to deny that the pair were in a relationship, as did Katy Perry and Dylan Penn. After beards and scruffy airport exits, the Dior for Homme ads reminded us just how fit the Patz could be. Robert Pattinson is rarely off our screens for long and his next movie is The Rover, which sees him star opposite Guy Pearce as an injured gang member.
