Robert Pattinson Talks about first meeting with Christopher Nolan

Rob spoke to EW about his first meeting with Christopher Nolan – hmmm wonder what chocolates they were. From EW:

“I was in London at the beginning of last year and had kind of absolutely nothing going,” Pattinson told EW in the course of an interview for this month’s Tenet cover story. “So, I was panicking about that when out of nowhere there was a call to say, ‘Do you want to come back to LA?’ [I] went to meet him, and we kind of talked for three hours, and I have no idea what I’m meeting for, what the subject is. I was actually going back through his filmography to kind of try and predict what sort of genre he would go into next. And then, after hours of talking, he finally kind said in the last two minutes, ‘So, I’ve been writing this thing and would you like to come back and read it?'”

Even so, Pattinson was concerned that he might have messed up his chances of working with Nolan, having committed what he feared was a chocolate-based faux pas.

“There was this pack of chocolates on the table,” the actor said. “I had a massive blood sugar drop by the end of this conversation. I thought I was going to pass out because we’d been talking so much. I was trying to concentrate so much. Finally, I asked for one of the chocolates and he immediately ended the meeting. I was like, oh my god, I f—ed it up.”

Christopher Nolan then had this to say when talking about Rob’s character “Neil” in Tenet:

Rob plays a character called Neil in the film — or we think may be called Neil,” said Nolan. “You never really quite know what’s going on with these identities. But he’s the very definition of a fantastic supporting character. He’s a very important character to this film, but he’s very much in support of John David’s character.”

    Had no idea who John David Washington is. I see he’s only done a couple of movies and hes slated to be an A list celebrity? Then I realized he’s Denzel Washington’s son. Nepotism in Hollywood runs rampant.

    I first came across him in Spike Lee’s 2018 Blackkklansman opposite Adam Driver – but it does seem like a meteoric rise in comparison to others 🙂
