This British babe, affectionately known as R.Pattz, plays guitar and piano and wanted to become a musician like older sister Lizzy. His father steered him toward acting and after a chance meeting with theater students from England’s renowned Harrodian School, he decided to pursue that path. He made his debut at 17 in a TV film called Ring of The Nibelungs. Reese Witherspoon, who played his lover in 2011’s Water For Elephants, first played his mother in Vanity Fair (2004). He starred in not one but two of the highest-grossing franchises of all time — Harry Potter (as doomed Cedric Diggory) and the Twilight Saga. It was his portrayal of Bella’s beloved bloodsucker Edward Cullen in the five-film Twilight series that made his tousled tresses (which he jokingly credits for 75% of his performance) and brooding stare known around the world despite diehard fans of the books initially opposing his casting. He hasn’t given up his musical aspirations entirely as songs by him appear in Twilight and How To Be. In a case of life imitating art, Pattinson started dating his leading lady Kristen Stewart. In the summer of 2012, an infidelity scandal eclipsed coverage of his critically acclaimed role in David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. Stewart cheated on him with the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders, and eventually issued a public apology. It appears he’s forgiven her as the couple was back on (and cohabitating) in time to promote Breaking Dawn Part 2.
