1. The actor’s first feature was “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
In 2005, Pattinson was a relatively inexperienced performer with just three roles to his credit when he was cast as Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.”
This was his first significant job and, in many ways, the one that made him famous.
2. Pattinson declined to attend college in favor of appearing in “Harry Potter.”
When Pattinson was chosen to play Cedric Diggory in the “Harry Potter” series, he was 17 years old.
In a 2017 interview with Time Out London, Pattinson said that he had to decide between his part in “Harry Potter” and going to school.
“I was unable to attend since it ran so late. “It was intended to last four months, but it was really ten or eleven he said. “I was the only one who wasn’t in school; I was 17 years old. I’d just linger.”
3. However, Pattinson had an uncredited appearance in “Vanity Fair” prior to “Harry Potter.”
Prior to “Harry Potter,” Pattinson was chosen for a tiny part in 2004’s “Vanity Fair,” which was his first significant acting job.
Reese Witherspoon, who would later co-star with him in “Water for Elephants,” played the lead role; however, Pattinson’s sequences were regrettably omitted from the completed product.
4. He said he was dismissed from elementary school for stealing pornographic publications, which he later sold.
Pattinson claimed that he was expelled from his “exclusive” elementary school for stealing pornographic magazines and selling them to his pals in an appearance on “The Howard Stern Show” in 2017.
He would refill his stock of periodicals by stealing them from a nearby shop, which finally resulted in the actor being apprehended.
“When I used to enter, I’d grab one or two and put them in my bag. “It was a little hazardous for me since I was wearing my school uniform,” he informed Stern. At the very end, I became so arrogant that I demanded the whole rack.
5. Despite having an accomplished film career, he has never been in a TV series.
In his 15-year career, Pattinson has starred in TV movies and video shorts, but he has never been on a TV program.
6. Pattinson is a musician as well.
Pattinson not only plays the piano and guitar, but he also sings and composes his own songs. His original compositions “Never Think” and “Let Me Sign” from the “Twilight” album may have made you know his voice.
He continues to perform, and one of his more recent songs was recorded for “High Life,” a 2019 movie starring Claire Denis.
7. The celebrity declared his lifelong dream of becoming a rapper.
Pattinson said to the presenter of “Late Night With Seth Meyers” in 2020 that he once wanted to be a rapper and still kind of does.
He did make a few unreleased cassettes under the rap moniker “Big Tub,” which he used as a member of Big Tub and the Tabby Cats.
He chuckled with Meyers, “Yeah, I remember I didn’t know how to scratch, so I used to pull up and down the zip of my hoodie—that sounds just like it.”
8. The actor has acknowledged that his driving skills need improvement.
During his first visit to Ellen DeGeneres’ program, Pattinson said that he doesn’t actually know how to drive.
“Although I am technically a driver, I am not a skilled driver,” he said. “It’s horrifying beyond belief.” I also can’t see since I don’t know how to operate the little wiper on the windshield.
9. He has won awards for his kissing, however.
Pattinson and “Twilight” co-star Kristen Stewart shared four MTV Movie and TV Award victories from 2009 to 2012.
No other team has won twice in a row, much less four times.
10. Pattinson almost lost his job on “Twilight.”
In 2017, some ten years after the debut of the first “Twilight” movie, Pattinson said that he came dangerously close to losing his job as Jacob Black.
The actor said that he was instructed to loosen up since he was acting “too seriously” as Edward. Even a copy of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” with every instance of his character grinning marked for motivation was provided to him.
Fortunately, he and the director were able to settle on a character.
