Robert Pattinson's Career Only Got Better After Kristen Stewart Split


Robert PattinsonHas Robert Pattinson's breakup with Kristen Stewart been the best thing that ever happened to him? Well, career-wise, maybe. Rob has been superbusy since the split, filming one role after another. There's been Maps to the Stars, Life (filming now), and the upcoming Rover, Mission Blacklist, Queen of the Desert, Lost City of Z, and The Childhood of a Leader. Basically, Rob has not stopped working since he wrapped Twilight: Breaking Dawn.

The break with KStew could have done a couple of things for his career: One, it helps separate him from his Edward image. Two, it gives him an excuse to work, work, work. Nothing like burying your heartbreak on long set hours. If they'd still been together, there's a chance he may have turned down some projects in order to remain close to KStew and his home base in Los Angeles.

But as a free man, he's able to roam all over, booking project after project.

Of course, there's a slightly more pragmatic view of his career upswing: He's now free to take on other movies since the Twilight franchise has ended -- and this is when he NEEDS to take them on, because unless he gets another big hit or two, no one will want him in a few years.

Also, parts are harder to come by as an actor ages, unless he's proven himself as a hit-maker or a massive acting talent who can take on a broad range of roles, a la Sean Penn or Robert De Niro.

I think we know which category Rob has been in thus far. Surely, he hopes one of these films will change that.

Do you think the breakup helped his career?

You people are unbelievable. Talk about back-handed.  First, you can't even get your facts straight.  Rob took almost a year off after filming 7 movies in 4 years.  Second, given that Rob travelled from Toronto to Budapest to London to NYC as well as worked in LA, his filming while with Kristen was every bit as serious. And, given what every single director and costar has to say about him, both before and after the split, I don't think him breaking from her will play any part in his career.  Nope, that's allll him.

1. Mission Blacklist has been "about to be made" for almost 2 yrs now.
2. He worked 1 wk on Queens of the Desert
3. Rover he made while he was still with her.

And actually Kristen's career has been working non stop. Camp Xray, Sils Maria, Still Alice, American Ultra (which Lionsgate paid 7 MILLION DOLLARS just to distribute, find a Rob project that was fought over like that), Equals, and Snow White 2. AND SHE BOOKED HER 2ND MAJOR CAMPAIGN WITH CHANEL?!

But keep trying to throw shade you sad sad middle aged moms. You aren't pathetic or anything.

nonmember avatar RIDICULOUS

And I love how you slut shamed Kristen on your article on her and Nike. Funny Chanel didn't have a problem with her "cheating scandal" Kiri hmmm? You're a pathetic loser salivating over Pattinson and throwing shade at Stewart.

You people that want to drag Rob down because K cheated is what is sad. I cannot for the life of me understand how as a woman you stand behind her & support her for what she did to Rob & Liberty's kids? Obviously you have never been cheated on or you wouldnt be so quick to defend a homewrecker! Rob has a great, thriving career. He is going to continue to thrive. He wasnt with her during the filming of The Rover btw. He made the best move ever when he dumped her & his career would have been great either way! People need to stop linking Rob to her! There is no robsten... its over! Get over it people Rob has!

The funniest part is that he is actually wearing the same jacket that Kristen wore days ago. She wears the same hats and jackets that he wore days ago. And you still say they split. LOL. I'd NEVER wear my ex's clothes...... just saying.
