Robert Pattinson is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming film - The Batman which will feature him as Bruce Wayne/Batman. While the actor only had a few months for the physical preparation of his character, the 35-year-old actor has now revealed an intriguing technique that helped him get into the shape of Bruce Wayne.
The 35-year-old London native opened up about some of his fitness secrets for getting into Batman shape in a new interview with People. Pattinson revealed one of his techniques was even limiting his sips of water to make his physique stand out that much more.
“I had about three months before the movie started, and then you're working out before and after work all the time,” Pattinson revealed.
“You just cut down and cut down and cut down before the couple of scenes with your shirt off, and you're counting sips of water,” the actor added.
For the unversed, the technique of counting water sips is used in amateur wrestling to cut down weight and by bodybuilders before a show.
While he only had a few months to get into the right shape, he revealed that, 'Shame is my biggest motivator, 100%.'
When Pattinson wasn't shirtless in the movie, he was often in his iconic Batsuit, revealing that helped him connect to the character, even more, reported DailyMail.
“It's funny because you read the script and you spend loads of time trying to figure out, ‘How can I play this character who does these sort of audacious acts?’” Pattinson began.
“And the closer I got to the shoot I got more and more paranoid — you know, it feels ridiculous when you're just sitting at home in a t-shirt — and then you put it on. It's got an elemental power to it,” he added.
He continued, while wearing the suit, “People react to you differently, the crew reacts differently. Your entire world suddenly changes.”
“And then you kind of catch this glimpse in like, the subtle reflection or a shadow on the floor and you realize that the character's just way bigger than you. It's kind of like wearing a crown or something,” Pattinson clarified.
The Batman is all set to release in theatres on March 4, and many are eagerly waiting for the release of the superhero drama.
