“It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies,” Pattinson said. “And then I had to be secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test — I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a family emergency’ he said: ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?’”
