If You Want to See Robert Pattinson Do Porn, Pray His ‘Batman‘ Movie Flops

I’m not entirely sure if Robert Pattinson is going to turn out to be the next Leonardo DiCaprio, the pretty boy teen heartthrob who turned out to be an incredible actor or another Joey Lawrence, the pretty boy teen heartthrob who turned out… not to be Leonardo DiCaprio.

Like all British actors of his generation Pattinson got his start in Harry Potter, where he played Cedric Diggory, who was made out to be the coolest kid in wizard school but he was a Hufflepuff so he sucked and died.

After that Pattinson was cast in Twilight, and then he spent the next decade making tiny indie films to apologize for having done Twilight.

Now he’s playing Batman and he tells The Guardian that if that doesn’t  work out, he’s going to switch to porn like Maitland Ward.

And what will he do if all of his worst case scenarios play out? If he never gets Batman’s vibe? He thinks for a minute, then tosses back the head and gives the big giggle. “Porn,” he says. “But art house porn.”

I thought he had already done porn but it turns out the Bel Ami movie he was in is different from the gay twink porn Bel Ami movies.

Pattinson also said the reason he didn’t do any big blockbusters before now is, well, no one asked him.

This hasn’t been about escape. And he hasn’t been trying to defy our expectations. Not strategically, anyway. He just hasn’t been offered the roles. “Nothing ever came up for a big movie!” He did audition for Scorsese, and once for the Coen brothers, “but the whole world auditioned for those parts,” he says, and who was he to walk up to Scorsese and demand work?

Pattison actually seems really charming, and I’m thinking probably more Leonardo than Joey Lawrence. But I kind of want to see his hog, so let’s go failure!
