As the world practices social distancing amid the Coronavirus pandemic, various celebrities are sharing their workout routines on social media, flaunting their perfectly toned bodies. Robert Pattinson, however, is refusing to work out during quarantine even though his trainer is constantly asking him to exercise. During his recent interaction with GQ, Robert said something most leading men in Hollywood would shy away from admitting publicly. The actor, who is known for his role as Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga, stated that it is not important for actors to work out regularly to stay in shape.

Robert, who is all set to star as Bruce Wayne aka Batman in Matt Reeves' upcoming movie The Batman, asserted that people who work out frequently are part of the problem. “I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the ’70s. Even James Dean — he wasn’t exactly ripped,” he explained referring to the late actor who was known for performance in films like East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause. With comment, the actor addressed the issue of societal pressures surrounding body image for men.

The production of his upcoming DC superhero film was put on hold earlier this year amid the ongoing health crisis. Even though he will feature as the famous Caped Crusader in the film, the actor is not spending time keeping his body in check. Meanwhile, it was recently reported that the UK has lifted shooting restrictions. Last week, it was reported that the UK's Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport falls under the part of the country cleared to reopen. While the department is encouraging studios to get back to work, according to a report by ComicBook, The Batman creators are not planning on restarting the production.

James Dean didn't get the honor and privilege to play BATMAN. You, Mr. Pattinson have been given a HUGE honor. You have a responsibility to the studio paying your salary, to the fans, and to the character to bring it to life FAITHFULLY. In EVERY iteration, BATMAN is in "PEAK PHYSICAL CONDITION." By you NOT doing everything you can to achieve you f TOP PHYSICAL CONDITION, does a disservice to the role. If you don't want to take this role seriously and put in the effort, then do the world a favor and step aside, and let someone else take on this cherished role. Stop acting like a spoiled Hollywood a**.

Robert Pattinson: . “I think if you’re working out all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. No one was doing this in the ’70s. Even James Dean — he wasn’t exactly ripped,” Hmmm. James Dean was actually pretty athletic looking...was a star prep basketball player with a nice athletic build. Unfortunately James Dean never made it into the '70's ...as he died on Sept. 30, 1955 in a two-car traffic accident at Cholame, CA . Robert Pattison played photographer Dennis Stock in the film, LIFE (2015)...and would have known that Dean and Stock combined their talents to do a LIFE magazine photo-shoot in February 1955 in NYC / Fairmount, Indiana....before James Dean died tragically in September 1955.
