Robert Pattinson prefers to keep his life low-key. Rob loves to take on independent film roles and remain quiet in his angsty hipster fashion. However, FKA Twigs has selfish plans for the ‘Twilight’ heartthrob and his fame. Twigs appears to be pushing Pattinson toward mainstream roles, and her moves bring up the question – Is FKA Twigs using Robert Pattinson to fuel her own career?
Before ‘Twilight’ most people wouldn’t know Rob beyond his role in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ as Cedric Diggory. After the metrosexual vampire franchise launched him into stardom, every wanted a piece of Pattinson. Doors began to open for Robert and the roles for mega-budget movies were piling up. Rob accepted some mainstream movie projects, but preferred to stick with his passion for indie films.
That all might be changing. Robert Pattinson has been cozying up to A-list celebs and networking for larger, mainstream roles. In fact, Pattinson has built a friendship with Brad Pitt. Robert and Brad have reportedly built a friendship during pre-production work on ‘The Lost City Of Z,’ according to OK! Pitt may have allegedly “fought” for Pattinson to get the role, but it’s out of character for Rob to fight so hard for mainstream movies.
Robert Pattinson has also started hanging out with bigger names in show business. Beyond Brad Pitt, Rob has been hanging out with fellow rising star, Charlie Hunnam. Not too shabby for the guy from ‘Twilight’!
Coincidently, before FKA Twigs was dating Robert Pattinson, most people didn’t know who she was. After Twigs started dating Kristen Stewart’s ex, the career she had been building gained more attention. It would appear as though FKA Twigs is banking on the fame and notoriety that comes with dating Robert Pattinson. It is not only possible, but very likely Twigs is pushing Robert into more mainstream roles, which keep him on the A-list and put bigger paychecks in the bank.
Robert is no stranger to showmance, but he and Twigs bonded over music. Since then, they have gotten engaged and Rob has supported his fiancé at various music festivals. Conveniently, his presence undoubtedly draws attention and brings Pattinson-loving fans and Twihards to events FKA Twigs is involved in.
