London-born actor Robert Pattinson skyrocketed to fame with the massively popular Twilight series — and he recently made headlines when it was announced he'd be playing the titular role in The Batman.
From modeling gigs to his sometimes dramatic love life, here’s everything you need to know about Robert Pattinson.
After honing his craft in several theater productions, Robert Pattinson landed his first big break at the age of 17: He was cast as Cedric Diggory in the 2005 film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
He chose playing Cedric over attending university, and the film took his acting career to a whole new level. His performance was widely praised, and numerous publications hailed him as "the next Jude Law," a label that proved difficult to shake. In a 2008 interview with the BBC, Pattinson was asked whether he agreed with that assessment.
The fourth Harry Potter film put Robert Pattinson on the map, but Twilight turned him into a household name. Pattison landed the role of Edward Cullen in a rather roundabout way: He was in Los Angeles auditioning for a role he assumed was already in the bag — and wound up bombing that audition. Keep watching the video to see the untold truth of Robert Pattinson!
