Yes, you read that right. Robert Pattinson in a new interview has spoken about him feeling he was terrible at his job in the DCEU flick at first. He even recalls having to think about the lights more than normal, as even a head movement can make it reflect off his mask and the entire scene could go for a toss. Read on to know what exactly he has to say.
As per Screenrant, Robert Pattinson said, “Your first thought is, Oh my God, I’m absolutely terrible. There’s a whole different language, body language, you have to learn to make it do what you want it to do. If you look too much into the light, it looks completely ridiculous, and you’re wearing a Halloween costume. But if you’re like two millimeters down, it’s like — oh, that’s completely totemic, and like it looks exactly how it’s supposed to look. But to learn how to feel that and learn how to react to how the light hits it, takes forever.”
