Robert Pattinson has been told on more than one occasion he smells “like a crayon”.

The British actor, who has been the face of luxury fragrance Dior Homme since 2013, candidly discussed his unique personal scent in an interview with Allure, and joked that it resembled that of embalming fluid used to preserve dead bodies.

“Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon,” he told the magazine. “Like I’m embalmed.”

In addition to his unusual confession, Pattinson also said he doesn’t wear fragrance all the time as he finds it too powerful, but makes an exception for the Dior Homme scent, which he described as “fresh”.

“I hardly ever wear fragrances. If I wear a fragrance, I find it quite overbearing. But this one, for some reason, you don’t really notice you’re wearing it,” the 33-year-old commented of the high-end cologne. “I can never really describe it. People are like, ‘Is it woody smelling?’ But I don’t really know what wood smells like. It definitely makes me feel more awake. There’s something fresh about it.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Twilight star Pattinson revealed that he was always shocked when he was picked for “good looking” roles in movies and was stunned when he was chosen to play school hunk Cedric Diggory in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

“I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people. My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get,” he explained.

Robert Pattinson is afraid of getting injured while playing the iconic superhero in The Batman.

The British actor was cast as DC Comics’ Caped Crusader last summer, and he told Vanity Fair that since then, he’s been overhauling his fitness regime in an effort to keep in the best shape possible.

“I’m doing Batman next year, and really it’s such a physical part that, more than anything, I’m afraid of getting injured, so I kind of need to be consistent with the working out. I have a trainer, who I really love, in London,” he shared, adding that he needs someone to watch over him to makes sure he does the workouts properly.

“If someone’s not watching over you, it’s so easy to work out in a really undisciplined way. I’ve given myself crazy tennis elbow just from being idiotic when you’re trying to lift too-heavy weights,” The Lighthouse star joked.

Pattinson is a big fan of easy exercises, and said that a quick workout in his hotel room can have the same results as a full gym session.

“I think simple stuff works the best. If you’re in hotel rooms all the time, planking is such an incredible thing to do. It’s really meditative as well. You don’t have to think about. It’s difficult to do it wrong, and the results are pretty incredible,” he explained.

However, he confessed that it takes him a while to get the motivation to start exercise, and likes to double down on his efforts closer to the beginning of filming.

“I think I have a similar thing to most people where I’ll dread working out,” he stated. “But in general, just before a job, it’s almost always a question of leaning down really quickly. So I’ll wait till the last possible minute, and then do (an) extreme lean-down in two weeks.”

Matt Reeves has shared the first look at Robert Pattinson as the titular crime-fighting superhero in The Batman.

News that the 33-year-old had landed the coveted role of the Caped Crusader in the upcoming movie broke last year, and now, Reeves has teased fans with brooding camera test footage from the set of the blockbuster.

The 55-second clip sees a moody Pattinson in the iconic black costume, with the sounds of Michael Giacchino’s piano-driven score playing in the background, which is saturated with red lighting.

The British star looks into the camera in the final few seconds, with his face covered by the black bat mask.

“#TheBatman #CameraTest,” Reeves simply captioned the clip on Twitter on Thursday, while Giacchino told his followers: “Yes folks that’s my music in the video Matt just sent out. Enjoy!!”

The star-studded cast of The Batman also includes Zoe Kravitz, who is set to play Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman.

And she was full of praise for Pattinson and his take on the iconic DC Comics character in a recent interview with Variety.

“He’s just a delightful person and such a wonderful, thoughtful actor,” she told the publication. “I think he’s perfect for the role and it’s going to be such an adventure. I’m excited to have him as my partner in crime and to be there to support each other, because it’s intense.

“It’s going to be a long shoot and there’s a lot of pressure, and I know he has my back and I have his.”

The Batman, also starring Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, John Turturro, and Peter Sarsgaard, is scheduled to hit cinemas in June 2021.

Robert Pattinson wants to use his star power to help independent filmmakers get their movies into cinemas.

After his breakthrough role in Twilight, the British actor took an unexpected career path and went down the indie route, going for challenging experimental films that possibly wouldn’t have received the funding to get made without his involvement.

Speaking with the BBC, Pattinson admitted he gravitates towards characters and parts that are “a bit perverse and a bit crazy” and wants to use his name to keep independent movies in cinemas.

“I definitely am on the side of trying to get independent movies into theatres and getting somebody to see them,” he said. “I think if every single obscure filmmaker was just completely drowned out by conglomerates then that would be an awful thing.”

Pattinson, whose recent films include Good Time, High Life and The Lighthouse, explained that he picks challenging films that he would like to watch himself.

“When I first started getting into film, the movies that I’d be buying DVDs of would be slightly obscure things from Cannes or whatever,” the 33-year-old continued. “And I just think… I don’t want to feel like someone’s trying to entertain me. It’s like if you go to a party and there’s someone there who’s just trying to entertain everybody. You might have a chuckle at them, but you know they’re really just a throwaway, pointless person with no depth… But if someone’s very much themselves and has an intriguing, independent point of view, then they are an interesting person to converse with. I just look at movies the same way.”

The Harry Potter star, who has started production on The Batman, in which he’ll star as the Caped Crusader, added that he is aware his career could end at any moment and he would hate to finish on a film that he took simply to elevate his box office status.

“I always think that whatever movie you’re doing, there’s a potential that it’s the last movie you’re ever going to get, and so I don’t want to end my career on a ‘transitional’ movie,” he stated.

Robert Pattinson declared ‘most beautiful man’ in the world

Robert Pattinson has been declared as the world’s “most beautiful” man by a top plastic surgeon.

Dr. Julian De Silva measured the eyes, eyebrows, nose, lips, chin, jaw, and facial shape of many male celebrities, using the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi, and concluded that the Twilight actor came closest to the Greeks’ idea of perfection.

“The 33-year-old actor was found to be 92.15 per cent accurate to the Greek Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi – which measures physical perfection,” Dr. De Silva wrote on Instagram. “The list was compiled using the latest computerised mapping techniques. Robert Pattinson was the clear winner when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection.

“The Golden Ratio was a mathematical equation devised by the Greeks in an attempt to measure beauty… The premise behind this is that the closer the ratios of a face or body are to the number 1.618 (Phi), the more beautiful they become.”

Pattinson’s chin, eye position, and nose length/width came the closest to perfection, while his lips scored the lowest percentage.

Justice League star Henry Cavill came in second on Dr. De Silva’s most beautiful list with 91.64 per cent, followed by Bradley Cooper in third with 91.08 per cent, Brad Pitt in fourth with 90.51 per cent, and George Clooney in fifth with 89.91 per cent.

Clooney had previously topped the list but had dropped down to fifth as “the effect of ageing on the 58-year-old had resulted in a loss of volume in the face,” Dr. De Silva explained.

Retired sports star David Beckham came in seventh place, although he had a near-perfect ratio in the size of his nose and his lips.

Back in October, Dr. De Silva declared Bella Hadid the world’s most beautiful woman, followed by Beyonce and Amber Heard.

Robert Pattinson hates growing facial hair for movie roles because he’s “constantly covered” in food.

The 33-year-old has undergone several transformations for films including The Lighthouse, The Childhood of a Leader and The Lost City of Z, but he revealed that he’s not a fan of facial fuzz.

“I do not understand men who choose to do this to themselves,” Pattinson told Vanity Fair. “The idea of having a moustache as your go-to look for your whole life (means) you’ve got to be out of your mind. It’s like having a stone in your shoe every day.”

And the side effects of having a beard or bushy moustache proved to be too much for the Twilight star.

“You’re constantly sneezing, constantly covered in food. When we were in Nova Scotia, having a moustache definitely (helped you) fit in a little bit more with fishermen; I think you’d get more abuse if you didn’t have one,” he shared. “It definitely does encourage you to have a whole bunch of different facial expressions… I think I was just constantly trying to keep my hairs out of my nostrils.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the British star said he was relieved to be the face of Dior Homme, as it helped balance out all the “weirdos” he plays on the big screen.

“In the last five or six years, I’ve almost exclusively played weirdos,” Pattinson laughed. “It was almost a relief to be like, ‘At least I’ve got Dior coming out, so I don’t look like I’m just completely enveloped by the dark side yet.'”

Colin Farrell recently had to call a friend for help after he used an at-home dye kit on his locks.

Earlier this month, the actor decided to drastically change his look to celebrate the end of filming BBC series The North Water.

Colin had been in the North Pole on the set of the four-part drama, alongside co-stars Stephen Graham and Jack O’Connell, and wanted to overhaul his look after playing the brutish character of Henry Drax when he returned home to Los Angeles. However, he hated the finished result.

“The job I finished close to the North Pole was fairly intense, so at the end of films, I like to do something that might be something as simple as paint a nail black or get a haircut… or shower,” he told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show on Wednesday. “I decided to dye my hair… so I went to (drug store) Rite Aid and spent about $80 on L’Oreal’s finest.

“It went f**ked up. It went bad… It went purple, and then it went p**s yellow, and then it went… foxy silver-grey.”

Colin later admitted he panicked because he didn’t want to show up on the set of his next project, Matt Reeves’s comic book thriller The Batman, in which he plays Penguin/ Oswald Cobblepot, with grey hair.

“I had somebody come by and fix it, a friend,” the 43-year-old added. “It was misguided but it was something to kill a few hours.”

The Irish star will appear opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman in the film, which is due to begin shooting next month. The Batman is slated for release in June 2021.

Zoe Kravitz is a big fan of Michelle Pfeiffer’s portrayal of Catwoman.

Last year, it was announced that the Big Little Lies actress would be starring opposite Robert Pattinson’s crime-fighting Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’s upcoming flick The Batman.

And speaking to reporters at the recent Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour, Zoe opened up on what attracted her to the role and divulged that she had always loved Michelle’s debut as Catwoman in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns in 1992.

“I think Catwoman is an iconic character,” she explained. “I was never into a lot of comic books, but that world was always really intriguing to me. And then, of course, Michelle Pfeiffer – her performance has always been super inspiring to me. It just felt iconic.”

Zoe went on to discuss the complex character, who has also been played by Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway, and said she was excited to explore the “strong femininity” of the comic book criminal.

“I think Catwoman/Selina Kyle represents really strong femininity, and I’m excited to dive into that,” the 31-year-old stated. “I think femininity represents power, and I think it’s a different kind of power than masculine power. That’s something that’s really interesting about Batman and Catwoman.

“I think Batman represents a very kind of masculine power, and Catwoman represents very feminine power – slightly more complicated, and softer, too. I like the idea that you can be soft, you can be gentle and still be very powerful and still be very dangerous.”

The Batman, also starring Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, and Jeffrey Wright, is due for release in June 2021.

Josh Hartnett has denied turning down parts in three major superhero movies.

In recent years, various publications have reported that the Pearl Harbor actor had skipped on opportunities to play Spider-Man, Batman, and Superman in different projects.

However, Josh has now insisted those claims weren’t entirely accurate.

“I didn’t turn down Spider-Man. I don’t know where that came from. I’d only turned down Superman as a straight-up offer,” he told Variety in a new interview. “But I was, at that time of my career, where a lot of people were asking me to do those types of movies.

“I was having meetings with those directors and people were saying: ‘Would you be interested?’ I talked to them about what they were doing, and I ultimately decided I wasn’t, but that was a very privileged place for a young man to be in. I’m a little bit outside of the box and had the leverage to do that, and that’s the direction I chose.”

Back in 2015, Josh told a reporter at Playboy magazine he was offered the role of Batman but “decided it wasn’t for me”. Yet, in his most recent chat, the star backtracked on that comment and insisted the role “wasn’t an audition or an offer”.

“It was a conversation with the director (Christopher Nolan),” the 41-year-old explained. “I think there’s a lot of misinformation out there. When you say one thing one time about it, and now it gets blown up. But I don’t really care to tell that story over and over again.”

Christian Bale was eventually cast as Batman in Nolan’s trilogy, and the character has since been played by Ben Affleck, while Robert Pattinson will make his debut as the Caped Crusader in the upcoming DC Comics flick, The Batman.

Henry Cavill is the current Superman, while Tom Holland currently has the part of Spider-Man.

John David Washington was ‘terrified’ during Tenet stunts

John David Washington had to hide his terror while performing stunts for Christopher Nolan’s new spy thriller Tenet.

The BlacKkKlansman actor leads an all-star cast including Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and Kenneth Branagh in Nolan’s latest blockbuster, which includes huge action set-pieces shot in seven countries.

But Washington, the son of movie star Denzel Washington, has now admitted that he was scared out of his wits during some of the stunts, with one he filmed alongside Debicki on a boat proving to be particularly frightening.

“I was terrified, but when Christopher Nolan yelled ‘Action!’ I had to throw all that away and make it look cool,” the 35-year-old told Entertainment Weekly.

Asked why he was so worried, Washington added: “Because it’s a boat, man! I don’t know how to drive a boat! But I had to act like I did.”

However, Nolan was full of praise for his leading man, noting the athleticism Washington developed during a short American football career was vital to the film.

“He’s a massively talented actor and physically gifted,” the director said. “He’s an athlete and pretty hard for anybody to keep up with, including the different vehicles we shot him from – cars and helicopters. This guy moves.”

In addition, Nolan insisted Tenet has been an even more ambitious undertaking than his previous blockbusters, including Inception, Interstellar, and Dunkirk.

“We’re crossing a few different genres in a hopefully exciting and fresh way,” he explained. “Emma (Thomas, producer) and I have put together a lot of large-scale productions, but this is certainly the biggest in terms of international reach. We shot in seven countries, all over the place, with a massive cast and huge set pieces. There’s no question, it’s the most ambitious film we’ve made.”

Tenet is slated for release in July 2020.
