Robert Pattinson refused to perform sex act on a dog in new movie
The sexually explicit scene ended up being cut from the movie.
Robert Pattinson drew the line at pleasuring a dog for his new movie Good Time.
The Twilight actor stars as Connie, who is on the run from the police, in the crime drama, which received a six-minute standing ovation when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in France in May (17).
Connie has an affinity with dogs and thinks he was a dog in his previous life, and Robert has now revealed that the directors Ben and Josh Safdie wanted to go one step further and have Connie pleasuring his pet canine in one scene.
"There's this one scene which we shot, which was basically, there's a drug dealer who busts into the room and I was sleeping with the dog and basically giving the dog a hand job," he said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday (03Aug17).
"I asked the trainer, 'cause the director was like, 'Just do it for real, man! Don't be a p**sy!' And then the dog's owner was like, 'Well, he's a breeder, I mean, you can.' He's like, 'You just gotta massage the inside of his thighs.'"
However, the 31-year-old refused to do it for real so they used a fake dog penis for the actor to work with, and after going through all that trouble, the scene didn't make the final film.
"It was fun. It'll be on the DVD extras," Robert teased.
He also spoke about the standing ovation the movie received and revealed how the cast and crew couldn't actually see the audience clapping.
"It's weird because you have a spotlight on you and so after a while you're hearing clapping but you can only see the people involved in the movie clapping so I was like, 'Are we just the only people clapping? We might just be continuing this ovation just for ourselves.' Which may have been the case. We were just unaware of what was happening."
Good Time hits cinemas later this month.
