Robert Pattinson may have gone through an emotional rollercoaster the last few months, but things are looking up for the actor these days. Besides his recent reconciliation with Kristen Stewart, Pattinson is also enjoying a slew of successes on and off the Hollywood spotlight. One particularly beguiling career step-up for Pattinson are reports trickling in that he has just been tapped by luxury fashion house Dior to front its men’s fragrance line.
It seems like she’s following the footsteps of Stewart, who fronts Balenciaga’s Florabotanica fragrance, with this multi-year contract that will earn him a paycheck worth roughly $12 million With such a huge amount trusted to his name—or rather face—Pattinson will also reap some serious bragging rights as he’s bound to out-earn Brad Pitt, who was paid $7 million for the Chanel No. 5 campaign.
Although neither Pattinson nor Dior’s camps have confirmed the news save for several media outlets, this would mark as the actor’s first major endorsement deal. Rumor or not, it isn’t too shabby for a man known for his scruffiness and ruggedness to be considered the face of such a commanding name in fashion.
