Robert Pattinson says he refused to shoot a scene for his new film, “Good Time,” that involved a sex act with a dog because it was too obscene.
“There’s a big dog. There was actually, sadly, another dog which was cast, who is this big dog’s son, but it died just before. Mufasa, who is the father and this huge, huge dog, was initially in this scene,” Pattinson explained during his Thursday appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“My character, Connie, has this affinity with dogs. He thinks he is a dog in a previous life and he thinks he has control over animals. There’s this one scene we shot– 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.”
When the audience (and Kimmel) erupted in laughter, the actor added, “I asked the trainer [about it] because the director was like, ‘Just do it for real, man! Don’t be a p—-!’ And the dog’s owner was like, ‘Well, he’s a breeder. I mean, you can. You just gotta massage the inside of his thighs.’ I was like, ‘Just massage the inside of his thighs?’ I didn’t agree to do the real one, so we made a fake red rocket.”
“Hollywood is a great place,” Kimmel responded.
“Good Time” is about a botched bank robbery which lands Constantine Niklas’ (Pattinson) brother in jail. In the quest to get his brother out, he spirals into a world of violence and mayhem as he races against the clock to save both his sibling and himself.
Ben and Joshua Safdie directed the film, while Ronald Bronstein wrote the script with Joshua. Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, Ben Safdie and Buddy Duress also star.
“Good Time” hits theaters on August 11.
