Robert Pattinson Biography

Born May 13, 1986, Robert Thomas Pattinson, and his parents had no idea what this boy would accomplish when he gets older. He was born in London, England and ended up being a model, actor, and musician. This actor is best know for playing a vampire that many love in the movie Twilight which is based on the book Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

While trying he hand at modeling, Tess of the D'Urbervilles and Macbeth, were things he became involved in.
He had began modeling at twelve, but, 'his lack of a masculine appearance,' caused his modeling career to wind down about four years later. He did appear in the advertising campaign of Hackett's Autumn 2007 collection. He shared in December 2008 details on his previous modeling career, "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool. Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs. I had the most unsuccessful modeling career."
He had some luck in modeling when he was a supporitng role in Ring Of The Nibelungs, but wasn't lucky when in, Vanity Fair, his scenes were deleted and only able to viewed on the DVD. He was to be in the UK premire of The Woman Before, but was fired and replaced. Later than year was when he played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter The Goblet Of Fire. From the role he was named, The British Star Of Tomorrow, by The Times. Pattinson was then loved, discovered, and adored by many girls around the world when on November 21, 2008 he rocked on the screen as the sexy vampire, Edward Cullen, in Twilight. The series was already a hit because of the books themselves, but now it was rolling in tons of money. Robert was initially apprehensive about auditioning for the role, of fear that he wouldn't live to the perfection. He will be reprising the role in the 2010 sequel, New Moon, and then the third, Eclipse. But, nothing has been confirmed for, Breaking Dawn, the last book in the series.
After that Pattinson has lead roles in, How To Be, Little Ashes, and The Summer House. He also appeared and presented on February 22, 2009 at the 81st Academy Awards.
Robert shares that if he wasn't an actor he would be a musician, and that's not hard for many to believe, considered he sings, plays the piano, plays the guitar, and can compose music. Never Think, on the Twilight soundtrack he had co-written with Sam Bradley. Let Me Sign, on the Twilight soundtrack was written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long. And three songs he had preformed on the How To Be album were written by Joe Hastings.
