Lizzy Pattinson, a former receptionist-turned-personal assistant, wowed Simon Cowell and the other judges on X Factor recently – before they found out her brother is famed actor Robert Pattinson.
"I don't like to know anything [before someone auditions], but there was a girl that came in who turned out to be Robert Pattinson's sister," Cowell told ITV's "This Morning" of the event, according to Reveal. "They [production] didn't tell us, and in fact she didn't tell us until afterwards, which was a bit annoying. But I don't like to know. It's more fair that way."
Pattinson kept her famous sibling a secret from the judges because she wanted to succeed on her own talent. According to The Mirror, the personal assistant didn't want to "fall into the trap of just becoming Rob's sister."
Personal Assistants can sometimes come into the limelight due to their employer's celebrity standing, but in very different ways. Being a celebrity's personal assistant can sometimes mean helping to protect their identity while traveling, or even impersonating them in order to help them escape paparazzi. Pattinson's celebrity connection comes in a very different manner, however.
Robert Pattinson, best known for his starring role in the "Twilight" series, said that he was very proud of his sister.
