Robert Pattinson says there was definitely no bestiality on the set of his new movie Good Time. Just so we’re all clear.
The actor told a story suggesting otherwise on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, and it’s gotten a lot of attention.
Pretty much, he said that while filming Good Time there was a scene in which he was “basically giving the dog a hand job.” They ended up filming the scene using a prosthetic, but initially Pattinson was told to massage the dog’s inner thigh, he said.
This weird, winding story was all a joke, Pattinson says now.
The story I told on Jimmy Kimmel last night seems to have spiraled out of control, Pattinson said in a statement. What didnt come across is that this was supposed to be a joke. No one at all expected or assumed that anything like that would happen on the Good Time set.
“We are all huge animal lovers and would obviously never do anything to harm an animal. Everyone involved in Good Time are amazing professionals and have come together to make a movie that Im extremely proud of. I feel embarrassed that in the moment, I was trying to make Jimmy laugh, only to create confusion and a false impression.
So everything was a joke, and Pattinson, who was hailed as a hero by PETA for standing up to animal abusers, might not be their ideal spokesman anymore. Then again….
