Robert Pattinson (Thankfully) Refused to Perform a Sex Act on a Dog for 'Good Time' Film

Robert Pattinson (Thankfully) Refused to Perform a Sex Act on a Dog for 'Good Time' Film:

"The director was like, 'Just do it for real, man!'" Pattinson tells Jimmy Kimmel.

Directors have been known to sometimes ask actors to do weird things in the name of getting in character. In Robert Pattinson​'s case, this "weird thing" was performing a sex act on a dog.

Pattinson revealed on Thursday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! that his character Connie in the Safdie brothers-directed movie Good Time has a strong affinity for dogs, even believing he was one in a past life. According to Pattinson, one of the brothers wanted to convey this affinity by having the actor actually sexually stimulate a dog on-set.

"There's this big dog... Mufasa, who is a kind of one-eyed...huge, huge dog. There was initially this scene -- I don't actually think I should say this," Pattinson said, laughing. "There's this one scene which we shot, which is basically there's a drug dealer who busts in to the room, and I was sleeping with the dog. And, uh, basically giving the job a hand job."

According to Pattinson, the scene was initially considered important because it was a "character thing."

"The director was like, 'Just do it for real, man, don't be a p----!'" He mimicked in an American accent. "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.'"

Thanks to Hollywood magic, however, Pattinson was instead filmed massaging a "fake dog penis," as Kimmel put it.

"Wow, Hollywood is a great place, folks," Kimmel announced.

Watch below as Pattinson tells the bizarre story and recounts what it was like to receive a six-minute standing ovation at the film's premiere at Cannes:
