Born on May 13, 1986 in London, Robert Pattinson received a bourgeois education and attended private schools. At the age of 12, his mother, a model, helped him to launch his career, but his career never really took off even though at 16, his androgynous look of the time, very fashionable, seduces for a while. So he turns to comedy, which he likes much more. With his father’s consent, he joins the Barnes Theatre Company, the theater company in his neighbourhood.

Spotted by an agent, he landed a role in 2004 in The Sacred Ring, an English TV movie. The following year, he also landed a small part in The Vanity Fair. His performance allowed him to be spotted and he landed the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005. 2009 is the year of his consecration. Chosen to play the troubling vampire Edward Cullen in the phenomenon film Twilight – Chapter 1: Fascination, he becomes the new idol of teenagers, especially young women. Less than a year after the first chapter, the second installment of Twilight, Twilight -Chapter 2: Temptation, is brought to the screens.

At the same time, the actor appears in different productions, perfectly at ease in different registers. After the romantic comedy How to be in 2008, he continues in 2009 with Little Ashes, where he slips into the shoes of the famous Catalan painter Salvador Dali. Then in 2010, he was in Allen Coulter’s rather dark sentimental drama Remember Me, alongside Pierce Brosnan and Chris Cooper. The same year, he played in the third part of the saga, Twilight – Chapter 3: Hesitation. Just before he followed with the last two episodes: Twilight – Chapter 4: Revelation Part 1 (2011) and Part 2 (2012). Filming is multiplying at a frantic pace for the actor who varies the genres with for example, in 2011, the feature film by Francis Lawrence, adaptation of the eponymous book (and romantic drama). One year later, he becomes Eric Packer, the Millionaire of David Cronenberg’s violent Cosmopolis. Then he slipped into the shoes of the seductive journalist Georges Duroy in Bel Ami, the adaptation of Maupassant’s classic, at the end of June 2012.

Robert Pattinson, is a multifaceted artist. The actor is indeed also a musician. He started playing piano at the age of 3 and classical guitar at the age of 5 and was part of the group Bad Girls. Two of his songs are present as background music in Twilight, chapter I: Fascination.

On the heart side he met actress Kristen Stewart on the set of the saga Twilight. But in July 2012 the actress confesses her affair with director Rupert Sanders and makes a public apology to Robert Pattinson. After three years of rumors, this is the first time Kristen has made her love affair with Robert Pattinson official. But the couple does not survive this ordeal and the two actors separate in 2013. In 2014, he finds love again on the arm of FKA Twigs. But the couple separates in October 2017.
