Robert Douglas Thomas Pattinson (born 13 May 1986 in London, England) is an English actor, model, musician and producer.
Pattinson started his film career by playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a 2005 fantasy film. He later got the leading role of vampire Edward Cullen in the film adaptations of the Twilight novels by Stephenie Meyer, which consisted of five films between 2008 and 2012 which grossed over $3.3 billion in worldwide receipts.
Twilight brought Pattinson worldwide fame, and established him among the highest paid and most bankable actors in Hollywood. In 2010, Pattinson was named one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in The World, and also in the same year Forbes ranked him as one of the most powerful celebrities in the world in the Forbes Celebrity 100. In 2009, he portrayed Salvador Dalí in Little Ashes.
That same year, a documentary film, Robsessed, about the actor's fame and popularity, was released. He appeared as a troubled young man in Remember Me (2010) and also starred in a romantic drama, Water for Elephants (2011). His performance as a tough, cold-hearted and calculating billionaire in David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis (2012), earned him critical praise. He gained critical appreciation for his performances in David Michod's futuristic western The Rover and in Cronenberg's satire drama Maps to the Stars (both 2014).
He will appear in Werner Herzog's biopic film Queen of the Desert, in Anton Corbijn's Life, a drama film about Life Magazine photographer Dennis Stock and James Dean, and in James Gray's The Lost City of Z, about an explorer who disappeared in the Amazon while looking for an ancient city. Pattinson composes and plays his own music. He sang in the Twilight film series and How to Be, a 2008 independent comedy-drama film.
He is a supporter of ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes), Parents and Abducted Children Together (PACT), and the GO Campaign, a nonprofit organization that raises awareness and funds to help orphans and vulnerable children throughout the world. He is a member of International Medical Corps and has promoted and shared details about cancer through Public service announcements to raise awareness about the disease.
In 2008, Pattinson became romantically linked to co-star Kristen Stewart. For a long time, the two did not explicitly confirm a relationship, but paparazzi photographs and eyewitness accounts drove intense media and fan speculation and attention. However, Stewart officially acknowledged her relationship with Pattinson for the first time in July, 2012, when Us Weekly published photos of Stewart showing affection with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, with what the Huffington Post called an "affair with...Sanders".
The day that the photos were released, Stewart issued a public apology to Pattinson at People Magazine, saying, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized 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."
After dodging the question repeatedly, Pattinson confirmed in an interview with Esquire UK in July, 2014 that he and Stewart had split in 2012. There had been prior speculation that the couple broke up in May 2013, when Pattinson was seen removing personal items from Stewart's home.
In September, 2014, it was reported that Pattinson was dating London-based singer, songwriter and dancer FKA twigs.
