Robert Pattinson Admitted He Makes Stuff Up In Interviews

The actor, 35, clarified that he did indeed beef up to play Batman after previously claiming that he didn't.

Robert Pattinson—the actor who formerly played Edward Cullen in Twilight and is currently Bruce Wayne in the upcoming epic The Batman—recently admitted to GQ that he’ll just make something up in an interview, in order to say anything at all. And that has had its consequences. Years ago, the actor had once told Extra, as per MTV, all the way back in 2009, that he doesn't wash his hair, and the false admission has come back to bite him to this day. At the time, he said, "It's like, I don't clean my apartment 'cause I don't care. I have my apartment for sleeping in and I have my hair for just, you know, hanging out on my head. I don't care if it's clean or not."


The Harry Potter star also made comments that he wasn't working out in preparation for The Batman which was also false. Pattinson told MovieMaker those statements "came back to haunt [him]." "I just always think it's really embarrassing to talk about how you're working out," said Pattinson, laughing. "I think it's like an English thing. Unless you are in the most unbelievable shape, where people are just genuinely curious, going, 'How have you achieved, like, physical perfection?' or whatever." Pattinson's initial comments to GQ for a June/July 2020 cover story included the actor saying, "I think if you're working out all the time, you're part of the problem." He added, "You set a precedent," while also pointing out, "No one was doing this in the '70s. Even James Dean—he wasn't exactly ripped." "Literally, I'm just barely doing anything," Pattison told the magazine at the time. But it seems he's definitely been working out, he's Batman after all! "I think I was doing the interview when I was in lockdown, as well, in England," Pattinson clarified to MovieMaker. "I was in a lower gear of working out. It's the same thing as saying in an interview when I was like 21 that I didn't wash my hair," he continued, laughing. "It just sticks for 15 years."


Fans can watch The Batman in theaters on March 4. The film received a PG-13 rating for "strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material." The Matt Reeves-directed film has a run-time of 2 hours and 55 minutes including the credits, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This means it's the longest-running time of any solo Batman film!
