Movie star, musician, heartthrob, vampire…these are just some of the words that could be used to describe former Twilight actor Robert Pattinson. Ever since first skyrocketing to mega fame in 2008 with his portrayal of Edward Cullen in the beloved teen vampire romance franchise, Pattinson has been continuing to make a name for himself in the industry, recently winning over the well-fought over role of Batman in the upcoming Matt Reeves reboot.
From his messy and heartbreaking romance with Kristen Stewart to his love-hate relationship with fame, and the harsh criticism he has been faced with, here is everything there is to know about our next Batman, Robert Pattinson.
It goes without saying that Robert Pattinson has had quite the successful career. The 33-year-old has been in numerous films – aside from the Twilight franchise – from playing Cedric in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire to starring in movies such as the 2010 romantic drama Remember Me to more recent, well-acclaimed roles in films like the 2017 crime-thriller Good Time and the 2018 sci-fi mystery High Life.
And now, Pattinson is preparing to take on the role that just may get people to stop referring to him as the ‘guy who plays that vampire from the Twilight movies,’ as the iconic titular superhero in Matt Reeves’ highly-anticipated upcoming 2021 reboot, The Batman. Of course, Pattinson’s road to success hasn’t always been easy, the British actor has had to face many challenges along the way with both his career and his personal life.
