The English actor once typecast as the teen vampire hunk type due to his role as Edward in Twilight has managed to break out of the shell and awe movie-goers. His roles in recent hits like Batman and Tenet has made it loud and clear – actor Robert Pattinson has arrived!
Most importantly, he is ripped. But the star does not look at it that way.
“I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the ’70s. Even James Dean — he wasn’t exactly ripped. Literally, I’m just barely doing anything.”
Pattinson says he has never struggled with body image but he has had the following experience.
“I have basically tried every fad you can think of, everything except consistency. I once ate nothing but potatoes for two weeks, as a detox. Just boiled potatoes and Himalayan pink salt. Apparently it’s a cleanse… you definitely lose weight. And I tried to do keto once. I was like, “Oh, there’s a diet where you just eat charcuterie boards and cheese all the time?” But I didn’t realise that you can’t have beer as it completely defeats the purpose.’
He further added that “You’re playing Batman. You have to work out.”
