On Wednesday, Robert Pattinson came Jimmy Kimmel Live! To promote his new movie, Batman. Pattinson follows Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck as the latest star to star in Bruce Wayne’s mantle. But it turns out that playing a famous crime fighter can be stressful.
“I was absolutely terrified,” Pattinson said, “I haven’t had this fear of shooting a movie in a long time.”
While Pattinson has been a part of some huge movie franchises, in particular twilight And Harry PotterPlaying such a lovable character is a challenge.
“If you’re a bad Batman, there’s no greater catastrophe than that, right?” asked Jimmy Kimmel.
“That’s what everyone keeps telling me,” Pattinson said. “They’re like, if it all fails, you’re still part of something really special. I love, I don’t want to be the worst, that’s what I remember.”
Pattinson was so concerned about his performance as Bruce Wayne that he had only actually shown the movie three days earlier.
“I kind of realized, ‘I need to be in the perfect balance of serotonin to watch my private things.'” Pattinson said. “I need to work out beforehand, I need a massive amount of sugar and caffeine. [Then] Everything I watch, I’m like, “Yes!”
In the end, Pattinson credited his girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, with helping relieve his stress. Her reaction to his performance made everything better.
“She doesn’t usually care about watching superhero movies,” said Pattinson, “just seeing that she was getting her attention the whole time, and then I just grabbed my hand and just touched it.” [to her face]I can feel a little tear. I was like, “Impossible.”
