The Batman star Robert Pattinson has revealed his fear of paparazzi and how he tries to defend himself against them.
Robert Pattinson is no stranger to fame. His first major role was in the fourth Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire where he played the ill-fated Cedric Diggory. Three years later, Robert Pattinson was thrust into superstardom thanks to his role in the Twilight Saga. After the series ended, the actor began taking up more challenging roles in smaller independent films up until now.
Last year it was revealed that Robert Pattinson had officially joined the cast of Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC superhero film, The Batman as the titular character. During a recent interview, The Batman star revealed that since becoming a major celebrity, one thing that he has never gotten used to was the paparazzi. Paparazzi are, of course, a less reputable set of photographers who take unsolicited pictures of celebrities in order to sell them to tabloid magazines and other media outlets. During an interview with GQ Robert Pattinson revealed his fear of them and how he tries to protect himself against them:
“I have so many terror memories of the paparazzi… and I still don full-on protective armour, hood up, hat down.”
What do you all make of The Batman star’s comments? Can you blame Robert Pattinson for trying to stay protected from the paparazzi? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Full plot details on The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman opens in theaters on June 25, 2021.
