He later played the lead role as Edward Cullen in 2008's Twilight.
The movie's about a vampire who falls in love with a human.
Robert went on to star in the heartbreaking movie Remember Me.
It's about a young man who falls in love with a young lady named Ally.
However, secrets begin to emerge and it threatens their romance.
Another extremely popular film of his is Water for Elephants which came out in 2011.
He plays a veterinary student who is forced to leave school when a terrible tragedy strikes.
His character becomes an animal caretaker and falls in love.
The Batman is expected out on the 25th of June, 2021.
