Robert Pattinson Says He Got In Trouble for Stealing Too Many Socks from ‘The Batman’ Set

Robert Pattinson said that he managed to swipe items from the set of “The Batman,” but got scolded for doing so. 

No More Taking Stuff from the Set

“It’s impossible to take anything home from it,” Pattinson told BBC Radio 1’s film critic Ali Plumb in a new interview. “I did get a lot of socks. All of my socks are all from ‘Batman.'”

“I kept getting told from Warner Bros., ‘You know, it’s fine to have a few, but you take them every day. How many socks do you need? Because we’ve been shooting for a year,'” Pattinson added.

The “Harry Potter” alum makes his debut as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the latest retelling of the iconic character from DC Comics, directed by Matt Reeves and in theaters now. 

Though actors typically aren’t allowed to take items from sets without permission, some stars do often steal things that may hold some kind of sentimental value.

Reeves already said that he’s had discussions with Warner Bros. about a sequel to “The Batman.” So, it’s unlikely that Pattinson will get to take home any items that are more significant than socks, for the time being – especially his prized Batman suit.

On Filming The Batman

In a recent interview with Fandango, Pattinson also revealed that the crew of “The Batman” acted differently around him when he wore the full costume.

“It has such a kind of totemic power,” Pattinson, who stars as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, told Fandango. “The crew looked a little bit scared. It’s really weird. If you don’t say anything and you’re just standing there, people get freaked out by it.”

“People start kind of behaving differently around you,” Pattinson recalled of his experience performing the camera test.
