Robert Pattinson revealed he had to take extreme measures when it came to his fitness and diet routine for The Batman.
He only had a few months to get in shape and morph into Bruce Wayne, and said he even limited the number of sips of water he could drink.
Speak with Peoplehe said: “I had about three months before the film started and then you train all the time before and after work.
“You just cut and cut and cut before the few scenes with your shirt off and you count sips of water.”
The Twilight star even joked that knowing he had to be shirtless in a scene was a huge motivator.
“Oh yeah. Shame is 100% my biggest motivator,” he said.

Much of the filming for The Batman took place in the dark, causing Robert’s skin to react to the lack of sunshine.
He confessed that he was “really dead” after filming.
The 35-year-old said: “I was really, really, really dead after that. I looked at a picture of myself from April and I looked green.
“The nature of the shoot was so closed, it was always shooting at night and I felt very alone.
“You’re not really allowed to leave the studio with the suit, so I didn’t really know what was going on outside.”
Despite this, he always remained perky on set as he got into the role. “I must really, really feel like I’ve hit rock bottom,” he explained GQ Magazine.
“Until the moment I have to perform, it’s like, ‘Wow, I’m the emptiest piece of shit.'”

“You have to feel the pain. And suddenly it’s like God gives you a little reward, ‘Here’s an idea you’ve never thought of’.”
While still filming for The Batman during the coronavirus lockdown in 2020, Robert admitted he hadn’t followed his personal trainer’s fitness advice.
Filming had to be temporarily halted due to the lockdown two years ago, but that didn’t mean Robert was concerned about maintaining his Bruce Wayne look.
“I think if you exercise all the time, you’re part of the problem,” he said GQ.
“They set a precedent. Nobody did that in the 1970s. Even James Dean – he wasn’t exactly smart.”
