Zoe Kravitz thinks Robert Pattinson is the perfect fit for iconic superhero Batman.

The Big Little Lies actress, who landed the coveted role of Catwoman in October last year, threw her support behind the British actor being picked to play Bruce Wayne during a recent interview with Variety.

“He looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jaw line,” she quipped. “But he’s just a great actor and he brings so much to everything he does… I think he’s perfect, perfect casting.”

The upcoming comic book adaptation, directed by Matt Reeves, is rumoured to be focusing on the detective aspect of the DC Comics superhero, and will also star Paul Dano as The Riddler, Colin Farrell as The Penguin, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon.

And Zoe respects Robert’s early days playing vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie franchise.

“First of all, he’s just a really good actor. He started out as this kind of teen pop sensation, and then I think we all kind of saw through his work that there was a lot more going on,” Zoe explained.

“He’s a really interesting artist, and that is very much Batman in a way. We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on. So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role.”

Kristen Stewart’s casting as Diana, Princess of Wales receives mixed response

The announcement revealing Kristen Stewart will portray late British royal Diana, Princess of Wales in a new movie has divided social media users.

On Wednesday, editors at Deadline reported that the Twilight actress would be playing the royal in Pablo Larrain’s Spencer, which will focus on her decision to end her marriage to Prince Charles.

The casting news proved controversial on Twitter, particularly among British people, who weren’t thrilled with an American being given the role.

“I’m sorry Kristen while she is a good actress simply isn’t the right fit for this role… Diana was class and elegance Kristen is the complete opposite of that,” one user wrote, while another posted, “Princess Diana is rolling in her grave! Can we get a petition to prevent this from actually happening?”

Another suggested British actress Emma Watson would be a “better fit” for the role.

On the flipside, verified film critics noted that Stewart understands Diana’s relationship with the press and will be able to use that for her performance. They also praised the way in which Larrain depicted former U.S. First Lady Jackie Kennedy’s life in 2016’s Jackie.

“Kristen Stewart playing a famous woman who was doggedly pursued by a press that made a savage feast out of her personal life? I think she’ll be able to tap into that,” wrote Kristy Puchko.

“Kristen Stewart playing Princess Diana in a PABLO FREAKIN’ LARRAÍN FILM? Apocalypse cancelled!” wrote The Telegraph’s Robbie Collin, while Variety’s Guy Lodge added, “It’s funny how Pablo Larraín’s name changes the headline ‘Kristen Stewart to star as Princess Diana’ into very good news.”

And Leslie Carroll, author of Diana and Charles: Royal Affairs and Notorious Royal Marriages, defended the casting of an American, telling Fox News, “If she can embody Diana’s body language and convey her famous breathy, posh Sloane Ranger voice, it won’t matter where she was born.”

However, Neil Sean, the author of The A to Z of Harry and Meghan, told the publication: “The casting of one of the world’s most famous women in Stewart just shows how out of tune the makers are with what the public’s image and above all love for such a great lady is.”

Production on Spencer is due to beginning in early 2021.

Anna Kendrick: ‘Filming Twilight was like a hostage situation’

Anna Kendrick has joked that she was so miserable while filming Twilight that she wanted to “murder everyone” on set.

The 34-year-old actress, who played high school student Jessica Stanley, confessed that shooting the first movie in the fantasy romance saga more than 12 years ago was a traumatic experience.

“The first movie we filmed in Portland, Oregon, and I just remember being so cold and miserable,” she told Vanity Fair, joking that she and her castmates, including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, were so irritated she wanted to kill them.

“And I just remember my Converse being completely soaked through and feeling like, ‘You know, this is a really great group of people and I’m sure that we would be friends at a different time, but I want to murder everyone,'” Anna quipped.

The Pitch Perfect star added: “Although, it was also kind of bonding. There was something about it, like if you go through some trauma event. Like you imagine people who survive a hostage situation, and you’re kind of bonded for life.”

However, filming the second movie in the franchise, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, was a much better experience, mostly due to the weather.

“The second movie, for whatever reason the weather wasn’t quite as intense and I think that’s sort of where we all got to know each other a little bit better,” she shared.

But filming the third, fourth and fifth movies all became too much, and Anna recalled they all “blended into one.”

“Because my whole job was to just go, like, ‘This family of very pale people who we never see eating. They’re really weird, right?'” she laughed.

Robert Pattinson: ‘Tenet is an incredibly complicated movie’

Robert Pattinson has admitted he struggled to understand the plot of his mysterious new movie Tenet.

The 34-year-old actor is one of the many big names in the star-studded cast of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming spy thriller, including John David Washington, Michael Caine, and Kenneth Branagh.

However, he has now confessed to Esquire magazine that he had absolutely no idea what the screenplay was about, even while shooting the film.

“It’s an incredibly complicated movie, like all of Chris’s movies. I mean, you have to watch them when they’re completely finished and edited three or four times to understand what the true meaning is,” Pattinson quipped. “When you’re doing them, I mean, there were months at a time where I’m like, ‘Am I… I actually, honestly, have no idea if I’m even vaguely understanding what’s happening’. I would definitely say that to John David.”

The Twilight star went on to reveal he was so dumbfounded by the narrative that he inadvertently discovered he had interpreted his character differently to how Nolan wanted him to play it.

“On the last day, I asked him a question about what was happening in a scene, and it was just so profoundly the wrong take on the character. And it was like, ‘Have you been thinking this the entire time?'” he explained. “There’s definitely a bond in the end in kind of hiding the fact that maybe neither one of us knew exactly what was going on. But then I thought, ‘Ah, but John David actually did know. He had to know what was going on.'”

Tenet is set to be released on 17 July.

Robert Pattinson re-evaluated career when he ran out of work

Robert Pattinson re-evaluated the viability of his career in quirky independent movies when he started 2019 without a job.

The British actor found fame with mainstream movies such as Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and the Twilight franchise before taking the indie route, with him starring in a range of niche films such as Good Time, High Life, and The Lighthouse.

And although he received critical acclaim for his performances in these projects, Pattinson realised in early 2019 that they weren’t giving him commercial appeal because not enough mainstream audiences were watching them.

“I started the beginning of last year with no job. And I was calling my agent and just being like—I had gotten good reviews in stuff—and I was like, ‘What the f**k? I thought this was a pretty good year, and I’m f**king starting the year like I’ve just done a pile of trash,’” he recalled to GQ magazine.

His agent explained that he wasn’t “on the list” for blockbuster films because “everyone thinks you don’t want to do any of this stuff”.

That conversation made him recognise he wanted to make those types of films too, to help give his career more stability.

“Just something which you could kind of rely on a little bit more,” the 34-year-old sighed. “The problem which I was finding was, however much I loved the movies I was doing, no one sees them. And so, it’s kind of this frightening thing, ‘cause I don’t know how viable this is for a career.… I don’t know how many people there actually are in the industry who are willing to back you without any commercial viability whatsoever.”

Soon after he made it known he was interested in studio projects, Pattinson was hired by Christopher Nolan to star alongside John David Washington in Tenet, and while he was making that film, he was offered the lead in Matt Reeves’s The Batman.

Robert Pattinson regrets Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire premiere outfit

Robert Pattinson considers his outfit for the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005 to be one of his worst fashion choices.

The Twilight star shot to fame playing Cedric Diggory, his first major movie role, in the fourth instalment of the Harry Potter movie franchise, and attended the premiere in Leicester Square wearing black leather trousers, a white shirt, a red velvet blazer, and dark red shoes.

In an interview with British GQ, Pattinson revealed he cringes at a lot of his old red carpet looks, but his ensemble for the premiere really stands out.

“I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket,” he recalled. “I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box.”

Pattinson’s sense of style has improved over the years and he credits fashion experts for making him look red carpet ready.

“If I was choosing to wear clothes myself, I don’t think I would have gone in a lot (of) the directions that I have ended up going in with Dior and people like Kim Jones,” the 33-year-old added, referring to the creative director of Dior Homme. “I never would have thought I would be wearing chiffon, silk, and satin. I wore this tuxedo, which had basketball shorts last year – never would have imagined that!”

Even though he has become more experimental with his style, the British actor, who is the face of the luxury brand’s current fragrance campaign, is well aware there are certain pieces he can’t pull off.

“I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky,” he gushed. “He just has serious style. We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but I’d look like a total moron. Then we will go to the show and I will see Rocky in it and be like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can literally wear anything!'”

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 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.'”
