About Robert Pattinson (1986 – )
Robert Thomas Pattinson, born May 13, 1986 in London, is an English actor, model and musician. He is best known for playing Edward Cullen in the film adaptation of Twilight, a novel by Stephanie Meyer, and for the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

His mother, Clare, worked for a modeling agency, and his father, Richard, imported vintage cars from the U.S. Robert attended Tower House School and Harrodian School.

pattinson-photosPattinson began modeling when he was twelve years old, but it wound down only four years later. When Robert was 15, he started acting in amateur plays with the Barnes Theatre Company.

Afterward, Robert took screen role like Ring of the Nibelungs (2004) (TV) (Kingdom of Twilight) as Giselher. The work required him to move to South Africa for several months, where the movie was being filmed. An unaccredited role in the movie Vanity Fair (2004) followed.

Around the same time he was finishing up work on those two projects, Pattinson met with Mike Newell, the eventual director of 2005's Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The meeting and subsequent audition earned Pattinson the role of Cedric Diggory, Harry Potter's friend and a fellow wizard.

What followed was a shot at the film Twilight. His audition for the role of Edward Cullen, a century-old vampire in love, took place in the bedroom of the movie's director Catherine Hardwicke. Pattinson wowed both Hardwicke and his future co-star, Kristen Stewart, with his performance.

He reprised his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight sequels The Twilight Saga: New Moon and the upcoming Eclipse, which filmed in August to October 2009 and will be released June 30, 2010.

In 2010, Robert executively produced and starred in the film Remember Me.

Robert was named one of the "Sexiest Men Alive" in 2008 and 2009 by People magazine. He was named one of Vanity Fair's "Top Hollywood Earners of 2009" with earnings of $18 million in 2009.

Robert Pattinson Quotes...

"I aspire to be Jack Nicholson. I love every single mannerism. I used to try and be him in virtually everything I did, I don't know why. I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when I was about 13, and I dressed like him. I tried to do his accent. I did everything like him. I think it's kind of stuck with me."

"Someone stole my shoelaces once from my shoes. I still wear them and never put laces in them – they're like my trademark shoes now!"

"I haven't really decided to be an actor yet! I started doing plays when I was about 15 or 16. I only did it because my dad saw a bunch of pretty girls in a restaurant and he asked them where they came from and they said drama group. He said 'Son, that is where you need to go.'"

"Up until I was 12 my sisters used to dress me up as a girl and introduce me as 'Claudia'! Twelve was a turning point as I moved to a mixed school and then I became cool and discovered hair gel."
