The on-screen connection between Zo Kravitz and Robert Pattinson in “The Batman” has been getting a lot of attention, and you’ve undoubtedly heard about it too.
After nearly two years of COVID-19 difficulties and rigorous production, the highly anticipated film finally premiered in March. Pattinson plays the hero (also known as playboy billionaire Bruce Wayne) while Kravitz plays his mystery nemesis (also known as Catwoman) in this film.
The three-hour film has received acclaim since its release for its compelling plot and intense action scenes. Fans are particularly interested in Pattinson and Kravitz’s performances because of the tension between their characters.
The pair had such sizzling chemistry onscreen that many fans speculated they were an item offscreen, too. However, it’s all made up; the couple’s romantic chemistry is purely imaginary.
Kravtiz has been seeing “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum for a few months, while Robert Pattinson is in a relationship with actress Suki Waterhouse. Fans have been given insight into the two friends’ mutually supportive connection despite the fact that they are not a couple.
Robert and Zo had Known Each Other for a Long Time.
Actors are bound to cross paths outside of work because of Hollywood’s tight knit community. Kravitz and Pattinson have known one other for 12 years as pals. He originally opened up about his friendship with the “Kimi” singer in 2019, when it was announced that she would be donning the infamous catsuit.
Kravitz seemed to mirror Pattinson’s feelings in a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, revealing that the actor was there during her screen test. “Rob was someone I was familiar with, but we had never collaborated professionally. I had to camera test with him and it was sort of hilarious,” she explained.
She went on to detail her first impression of Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen. “If you and your friend who is also dressed as Batman haven’t seen each other in a while, you should meet up for a quick camera test. But then you catch up and ask, “How you been?””
The chemistry between Zo and Robert jumps off the page.
The camera test “was a true camera test with the DP there and everything on stage,” she stated of the chemistry read. “To put it mildly, it was frightening. That completely threw me off and caused me some worry.”
Pattinson seemed to concur with Kravitz and admitted that he sought comfort from the “High Fidelity” star during the screening. “The camera’s not even on me, it’s on the back of my head, and I’m genuinely having this massive panic attack, just asking for emotional support from Zoë, who’s hoping to get the part,” he added.
They suffered from anxiousness for similar reasons as many others have in the past two years due to COVID controls and lockdowns. Kravitz said that she didn’t let her anxiety escalate because of her friendship with Pattinson, and that she revealed as much to the magazine.
She explained that even if there was “a lot going on in a scene,” all she needed to do was stare into Rob’s eyes to feel immersed in what she was doing at the time.
“Suddenly, I noticed a change in his expression. Observing something novel and delicate was a moving sight.” When it comes to friendship, Zoe and Robert are now at the top of our list.
