Robert Pattinson ended his three-year relationship with fellow Twilight actress Kristin Stewart in 2013, but speculation continues that they might be getting back together. Fans of both actors continue to be enamored of the idea of them reuniting in the same vein as Twilight‘s Edward and Bella. There were rumors flying that Pattinson and Stewart would meet again New Year’s Eve but that evidently did not happen. The two actors broke up in summer 2012 when Stewart was caught cheating with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, but then they got back together only to break up again in 2013.
It is reported that another young lady, British artist Nettie Wakefield, is spending time with Robert Pattinson. He and Wakefield, 26, were allegedly seen spending time together in London during the holidays, hanging out in local pubs. There is no confirmation from either party whether they are dating. Pattinson is friendly with several musicians and artists on the London scene, most notably folk singers Marcus Foster and Bobby Long. Wakefield is a pencil reverse portrait artist who will have her first solo art show at Rook & Raven Gallery in London in January.
Since his breakup with Stewart, Robert Pattinson has been linked with many women, including Sean Penn’s daughter Dylan Penn (who vehemently denied any relationship to GQ) and actress Dakota Fanning, who also starred in the Twilight films. A fan took photos of Pattinson having brunch with Fanning and other friends New Year’s Eve in Brooklyn.
Regardless of whether Pattinson is dating Wakefield, he has a busy schedule in 2014. He is currently filming Queen of the Desert, in which he will star as Col. T.E. Lawrence. The film is based on the life of Gertrude Bell, a traveler and writer during the time of the British Empire, and is being directed by Werner Herzog. Queen of the Desert is currently filming on location in Morocco and Jordan.
Pattinson films set for release this year are The Rover and Maps to the Stars. In the former, he portrays Reynolds, a criminal gang member who is left behind after his gang steals a man’s car. His costar, Guy Pearce, plays Eric, the owner of the stolen car. The latter film, which focuses on the power and machinations of Hollywood, was directed by David Cronenberg, who previously directed Pattinson in Cosmopolis.
Pattinson is currently the face of Dior Homme fragrance.
