In order to take on the title role of The Batman, an actor made him have a smaller physique beat Low.
As the days of shirtless acting drew near, Robert Pattinson meticulously “counted the sips of water” in preparation for his stripped down scenes.
The former ‘Twilight’ actor, 35, stars as the Caped Crusader in the 2022 reboot of ‘The Batman.”
But to play a death-defying, mysterious Adonis requires intensive preparation, including a strict diet.
In fact, it took “months” of physical preparation for the acclaimed role.
“I had about three months before the film started, and then you work out before and after work all the time.” he told people on the red carpet at Tuesday night’s The Batman premiere. “You cut and cut and cut before the few shirtless scenes and count sips of water.”
Appearing shirtless in the film, he said, is motivation to do his best.
“Shame is 100% my biggest motivator,” he joked.
But Pattinson’s scenes aren’t all shirtless. When he’s not flaunting his abs, he’s donning the infamous – and powerful – Batman suit.
“It’s funny because you read the script and you spend a lot of time thinking, ‘How can I play this character doing these kinds of bold acts?’ And the closer I got to filming, the more paranoid I got — you know, it feels ridiculous when you’re just sitting home in a t-shirt — and then you put it on,” he said of the costume. “It has an elemental power.”
The “whole world changes suddenly,” he said of the artificial armor, “because people react to you differently” when they see it. He realized that the character was “just a lot taller” than him, akin to “wearing a crown”.
But this isn’t the first time Pattinson has gone to extremes for a role.
2016 he has said people He “ate nothing” to achieve a 28-inch waist for his role in The Lost City of Z. (Though his slim midsection only “lasted for three days” after filming wrapped.)
“After six or seven weeks of just eating half a small piece of fish and like a crumb of rice,” he explained, “and then you eat a sandwich and you’ve gained 15 pounds after that.”
To the “Good timeIn 2017, his hair was dyed so heavily that it started falling out.
