See Birthday Boy Robert Pattinson Transform Through the Years

Happy birthday, Robert Pattinson! The actor turns 31 years old today, and he has come a long way since his days as a Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Pattinson encountered major fame when he was cast as Edward Cullen in the young adult novel-turned-blockbuster Twilight, thrusting him and his co-stars into the spotlight. When the franchise wrapped in 2012, the actor made a major career change, springing for indie films like Maps to the Stars, Life, and Good Time.

Happy 30th Birthday Robert Thomas Pattinson! (May 13, 1986) 

‘A movie is always a bet. When we sign, we never know if the result will be good or bad. I love having guaranties. By filming with director I admire, the risks are limited.’

happy birthday to one of my very favorite actors. despite the fact that people have left your fandom and say you’ve changed, i don’t see the person they’re talking about. you’re still the same kind, hilarious, intelligent, and dedicated man you’ve always been. your passion and drive for every project you do is nothing but admirable to me and there won’t ever come a time where i don’t support you and what you want to do with your life. i know how hard you work and you deserve every success and all the praise. you mean a lot to me and have made me smile and laugh when i haven’t felt like it. thank you for being a constant in my daily life and doing what you know is best for yourself. happy birthday, flippy. hope it’s a good one.
