Before his acting career took off, Robert Pattinson aspired to be a musician and even played guitar and piano. 

He is known for his versatility, but few know that he's fluent in French, adding to his international appeal. 

Robert's favorite book is "The Catcher in the Rye" by J.D. Salinger, showcasing his literary interests. 

He's a certified scuba diver, which speaks to his adventurous side beyond the silver screen, exploring the depths of the ocean with ease. 

Pattinson once auditioned for the role of Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" without having read the book, and still got the part! 

He has a fascination with odd jobs and once contemplated becoming a rapper or a circus performer, showcasing his eclectic interests. 

Pattinson was born in London, but he spent a significant portion of his childhood in Barnes, a picturesque village in southwest London. 

To prepare for his role in "The Lighthouse," he isolated himself in a small room for days, embracing method acting to the fullest.
