Hollywood star Robert Pattinson is critical of current body norms and spoke in this context about his two-week potato diet.

“The Batman” star Robert Pattinson (36) is critical of the body norms that men and women are confronted with. He has taken on a lot to meet the ideal in Hollywood, he told “ES Magazine”. Although he had no problems with his own body image, the expectations were “crazy,” said the 36-year-old. It is “very, very easy” to fall into a pattern. “Even if you’re just watching your calorie intake, it’s extremely addictive – and you don’t realize how insidious it is until it’s too late,” the actor said.

He does not like to talk about his training routine for films, the mime explained. After all, it’s “quite embarrassing” to answer questions about your training because there’s always someone “in better shape than you.”

For body ideal “tried everything”

When it comes to nutrition, he took a variety of approaches. “I once ate nothing but potatoes for two weeks as a detox. Just boiled potatoes and pink Himalayan salt,” revealed the “Tenet” star. It was “allegedly a cleaning,” he explained. “You definitely lose weight,” Pattinson said.

“I’ve basically tried everything you can imagine, everything without consequence,” said the Brit. “I tried keto once. I was like, ‘Oh, is there a diet where all you eat is charcuterie and cheese?’ But what I didn’t realize is that you can’t drink beer because that totally defeats the purpose,” he said.

Pattinson’s latest project is the sci-fi film Mickey 17, which is slated to hit theaters in March 2024. Oscar winner Bong Joon-ho (53, “Parasite”) directs. In addition to Pattinson, “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo (55), “The Walking Dead” actor Steven Yeun (39) and “Knives Out” mimin Toni Collette (50) also play.
