Robert Pattinson has opened up about body image for men in Hollywood in a brand new interview.

The actor was interviewed by GQ while in lockdown in London, and discussed his role in forthcoming Christopher Nolan film Tenet as well as his decision to become the next Batman.

Pattinson was filming Matt Reeves’s The Batman when the quarantine was announced and, when asked if he’s keeping to his strict fitness regime put together by a personal trainer, he said he’s ignoring instructions because it sends a bad message.

“I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem,” he said, referring to his fellow Hollywood actors.


“You set a precedent,” he continued, adding: “No one was doing this in the 1970s. Even James Dean – he wasn’t exactly ripped.”

Reflecting upon his time in the Twilight franchise, which began in 2008, he said: “The one time they told me to take my shirt off, I think they told me to put it back on again.”

Pattinson revealed his trainer pleaded with him to use the Bosu ball and single weight left with him while in lockdown, but said he’s “barely doing anything”.

He said he’s sticking to his meal plan, though, which includes oatmeal with vanilla protein powder sprinkled on it, as well as tuna topped with tabasco.

Christian Bale, who played Batman in Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, famously gained 43 pounds while bulking up for the role.

Pattinson will next be seen in Tenet, which is set to make history as the first new film released in cinemas post-coronavirus lockdown this July.

In the interview, he revealed the “one thing” he has been approved to say about the mysterious thriller.
