The 44th Toronto International Film Festival aka TIFF 2019 is now underway as several highly-awaited movies like Joker, Just Mercy, Ford v Ferrari, Hustlers and even the Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar starrer, The Sky is Pink. "I also, it seems like, I do not understand, I'm really, really pleased about that".

Bale's Ford v. Ferrari co-star Matt Damon, who was also in the interview, weighed in, "Did you see the Safdie brothers movie he did?" Damon was referring to the crime film Good Time, which generated Oscar buzz for Pattinson.


Actually, this is the same advice that Bale had given to Ben Affleck when it was announced that he was going to be Batman in Zack Snyder's movies. "Oh, same as for Ben". Just be able to pee by yourself. "You don't feel like a superhero when you aren't able to piss by yourself".

Robert Pattinson arrives for the North American premiere of the thriller The Lighthouse at the Toronto International Film Festival. But while Pattinson has shown that he has no qualms with bodily fluids, it's probably pretty sound advice considering the actor "had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs" when he first tried on the Batsuit for Warner Bros. executives. Pattinson goes from a vampire to a bat as he will be taking over the famed role-playing a youthful "Batman" below "War of The Planets of The Apes" director Matt Reeves. "To be honest, it was less vitriolic than I was expecting", Pattinson recently said.


There is no bad blood between former lovers Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. "I feel like he's the only guy that could play that part", she added.

Both Stewart and Pattinson have been private about their relationship, but she was happy to share her thoughts on the news that he would be the new Batman which she called "crazy".


'The only thing about the 'stache is I had to keep dying it all the time because my mustache is very blonde, so it kinda looks like...like I'm a 12-year-old with a hormone problem, ' Rob said laughing.
