Twi-hard fans can rest easy knowing that their favourite sexy-vampire actor Robert Pattinson will still be in the spotlight, even after the saga wraps. Rumours are circulating that the star has been named a new face for the Dior brand.
E! recently reported that Pattinson is thought to have scored a whopping $12 million for a three-year Dior ad campaign—that’s a chunk of change more than the rumoured $7 million Brad Pitt received for his stint with Chanel.
Pattinson would join a distinguished group of A-listers who are or have been associated with the iconic French brand, from Charlize Theron (J’Adore Dior) and Jude Law (Dior Homme) to Natalie Portman (Miss Dior).
The cynic in us considers that the actor’s much-hyped on-again-off-again relationship with girlfriend and Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart (she of the latest Balenciaga Florabotanica ad campaign) has been a very good career move. And ironically, Stewart’s dalliance with her married director, has given the young man even more profile.
While there’s still speculation on what Pattinson will bring to the Dior brand, we’re guessing he wasn’t selected for his hairstyle experimentations—after all, bad hair didn’t sway Chanel’s recent casting decision.
Don’t get too excited yet though. Dior hasn’t confirmed any deals. No worries. In the meantime, you can get your RPatz fix sooner: The man is back as vampire Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2, which hits theatres November 16th.
