Robert Pattinson admits he couldn’t hurt the stuntman on his new film.
The big screen heartthrob filmed his own fight scenes in ‘Remember Me’ but admits he was no match for the stunt team in the tough guy stakes.
Pattinson – who plays a tormented student who rebels against his father and then falls in love after suffering a family tragedy – said: “I punched the stuntman’s face four times – as hard as I could. And he just grinned at me and said he didn’t feel a thing. It was frustrating.”
The ‘Twilight’ star’s lack of fight also extends to real life, although he has been involved in several brawls albeit unwittingly.
He added to German newspaper Gala: “When I was a teenager I often got myself into precarious situations without realising that it would end in a brawl, more than once!”
The 23-year-old actor stars in the film with Emilie de Ravin and the pair appear in a number of raunchy scenes together, something which Pattinson was very nervous about.
He said: “Emilie was very, very, very comfortable. I’m always the one who’s the most uncomfortable. When you end up doing it, you have this little patch on your privates. I didn’t really tape it up properly, so I’d spent so long taping it round myself and then literally it falls off within one second and it’s taped to the sheet. And you realise the whole crew are looking directly at your butt crack. It gives you a lot of respect for porn stars.”
