Robert Pattinson (born 13.5.1986)

Robert Pattinson is an English actor and model, best known for his roles in the Harry Potter and Twilight series of films.

Robert Pattinson: Childhood

Robert Pattinson was born in London, to Clare and Richard Pattinson. His mother works for a modeling agency and his father imports vintage cars from the US. Robert has two elder sisters, one of whom is the singer, Lizzy Pattinson. The other is Victoria.

Robert attended Tower House School in Richmond Park and then Harrodian school in West London. Both schools are private, fee-paying schools. Whilst at school, Pattinson became involved in acting through the Barnes Theatre Company. He caught the attention of an acting agent whilst performing in a production of Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

At the age of 12, Robert Pattinson started modeling, though he only continued modeling for around four years, though he did appear in Hackett's advertising campaign in 2007.

Robert Pattinson: Acting Career

In 2004, Pattinson landed a role in the TV film Ring of the Nibelungs, along with Max von Sydow, Alicia Witt and Julian Sands. He also acted in Mira Nair's Vanity Fair, which starred Reese Witherspoon and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, though most of his scenes wound up on the cutting room floor. Pattinson was destined only to appear on the DVD version of the film.

Pattinson was originally due to appear at the Royal Court Theatre in The Woman Before. However, he was sacked just before the opening night and replaced by the actor Tom Riley.

In 2005, Robert Pattinson was named The Times' 'British Star of Tomorrow' for his performance as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The film also starred Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Ralph Fiennes. Pattinson found himself often being compared to another British actor, Jude Law.

In 2008, Robert Pattinson starred in Twilight. The film, based on Stephanie Meyer's novel of the same name, also starred Kristen Stewart, who he has dated on-and-off and became a huge hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Pattinson and Stewart both reprised their roles in The Twilight Saga: New Moon with Taylor Lautner and the second sequel, Eclipse. Pattinson also sings on two tracks of the Twilight soundtrack. He also composed two tracks for the film How To Be.

In 2009, Robert Pattinson starred in the drama film Little Ashes, in which he played the role of the artist Salvador Dali. He also lined up a theatre performance for the producer David Pugh as well as a role in Remember Me, with Emilie de Ravin. In February 2009, Robert Pattinson presented at the 81st Academy Awards.

To coincide with the release of New Moon, Revolver Entertainment created a documentary entitled Robsessed, documenting his rise to fame and subsequent popularity.

It is rumoured that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are rekindling their romance after their difficult split. The former Twilight co-stars reportedly talk all the time via Skype and text despite being thousands of miles away from each other.
