  • Robert Pattinson has a ‘ferocious’ masturbation scene in his new movie, The Lighthouse.
  • He just opened up about filming the scene and how he’s masturbated in four movies so far.

Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Forks, Washington, anymore. Even better, we’re in a world where Robert Pattinson has escaped the Twilight spotlight and is now a serious film ~acteur~ who stars in ~films,~ not movies, mmkay. His latest cinematic pursuit is The Lighthouse. TBH, the jury is still out on WTF this movie is about, but what I do know is that his first day on the job involved an intense masturbation session. (Actually, this very well may be a Twilight fan fiction.)

Talking to the New York Times, Robert said the ‘ferocious masturbation scene’ was exhilarating to film. He took the paper through his thought process at the time and said:

‘It’s always nice to do something massive for your opening shot, and I went really massive on the first take. It was a 180 from everything we’d done in rehearsal, and I could see [director] Robert [Eggers] a little in shock afterward. But I was like, ‘Okay, cool, I didn’t get told to stop, so I’ll keep going in that direction.’ As soon as I’d done that, it was like the road started getting paved.’

 

Edward Cullen is out here making history, people! If you don’t believe Robert, take it from the film’s director Eggers, who previously said Pattinson ‘really, really went for it’ and his masturbation performance was ‘inspiring.’
