Robert Pattinson Wants to Set Precedent as He Refuses to Workout for 'The Batman'
Warner Bros. Pictures

The 'Twilight' actor rules out training to bulk up his frame because he wants a natural look for his Caped Crusader role in the upcoming DC Comics superhero movie.

AceShowbiz - Robert Pattinson won't be hitting the gym to play Batman as he wants to emulate movie legends of the past by having a more natural look.

The "Twilight" star, 34, is the latest actor to take on the superhero role in Matt Reeves' "The Batman", which was being shot in London before the U.K.'s Covid-19 lockdown halted filming in March 2020.

However, he unlike past incumbents like Christian Bale and Ben Affleck, he won't use the extra time to bulk up his frame before shooting resumes.

"I think if you're working out all the time, you're part of the problem," he tells GQ magazine. "You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the '70s. Even James Dean - he wasn't exactly ripped."

According to the actor his co-star, Zoe Kravitz, who will play Catwoman", has been keeping to a gruelling fitness plan but he is "barely doing anything."

He is, however, sticking to a diet given to him by producers - as it's ensuring he eats correctly rather than keeping his own bizarre food choices.

"I'm essentially on a meal plan for Batman," Robert explains. "Thank God. I don't know what I'd be doing other than that. But I mean, yeah, other than (that) - I can survive. I'll have oatmeal with, like, vanilla protein powder on it.

"And I will barely even mix it up. It's extraordinarily easy. Like, I eat out of cans and stuff. I'll literally put Tabasco inside a tuna can and just eat it out of the can."

"The Batman" hits cinemas in October 2021.
