Robert Pattinson ate only potatoes for two weeks, slamming body standards

2 min read

Robert Pattinson is no stranger to getting in shape for film roles from “Twilight” to “The Batman,” but the actor has faced “hypocritical” physical standards for men both inside and outside of Hollywood.

“Even if you’re just watching your calorie intake, it’s incredibly addictive — and you don’t realize how insidious it is until it’s too late,” Pattinson tells ES magazine in a new cover story. Although she said she’s never struggled with her own body image, she’s “tried basically every fad you can think of, everything but consistency.”

Pattinson added, “I once ate nothing but potatoes for two weeks as a detox. Just boiled potatoes and Himalayan pink salt. Apparently it’s a cleanse… you definitely lose weight.”

Noting that one of her goals for 2023 is to “try consistency,” Pattison detailed some of the diets she’s tried, including keto. “I was like, ‘Oh, there’s a diet where you eat charcuterie boards and cheese all the time?’ But I didn’t realize that you can’t drink beer because that defeats the purpose completely,” he said.

Pattinson previously spoke about her workout regimen (or lack thereof) for “The Batman,” telling GQ ahead of the film’s release, “I think if you work out all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. 70 Nobody was doing that in the decade. Not even James Dean — he wasn’t exactly ripped. Literally, I was barely doing anything.”

The actor later admitted that those comments “came back to haunt me” in an interview with Moviemaker. “I always think it’s really embarrassing to talk about how you’re working,” Pattinson clarified at the time. “You’re playing Batman. You have to work.”

In the ES Magazine story, she recalled, “I got in a lot of trouble for saying I didn’t work out, even from my trainer, who was like, ‘Why would you say that?'”

Elsewhere in the story, Pattinson teased his upcoming film “Mickey 17,” directed by Bong Joon-ho, saying, “The movie is so crazy, it’s a completely different style of working.”

“Mickey 17” is set for release in March 2024.
