The 'Water for Elephants' actor is named a new spokesman for Christian Dior's fragrance label, reportedly earning nearly $12 million.
Robert Pattinson is getting busier and busier. While the 26-year-old actor keeps promoting "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part II", he is announced as the newest face of high fashion brand, Christian Dior. He will be Dior Men's spokesperson for its perfume label.
"Rob likes the brand," a source tells E! Online. Robert will appear in the ad campaigns for the French fashion house's fragrance line for three years. The actor is rumored getting almost $12 million from the deal.
Robert is no stranger to Dior. He attended Cannes Film Festival and Teen Choice Awards, wearing clothes from the French label. He will join Jude Law, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman who previously have endorsed Dior fragrances.
Before the "Cosmopolis" actor tried his hands at acting, he already became a model at the age of twelve. "When I first started I was quite tall and looked like a girl, so I got lots of jobs, because it was during that period where the androgynous look was cool," he said in an interview.
"Then, I guess, I became too much of a guy, so I never got any more jobs," he added. "I had the most unsuccessful modeling career."
