Robert Pattinson Had Absolutely No Idea What Was Happening in 'Tenet' While Filming

Robert Pattinson was like all of us and didn’t understand what his upcoming movie, Tenet, was all about while filming it.

Speaking to Esquire alongside co-star John David Washington, the 34-year-old actor admitted that the plot of the espionage thriller was very confusing to him.

“It’s an incredibly complicated movie, like all of Chris[topher Nolan]’s movies. I mean, you have to watch them when they’re completely finished and edited three or four times to understand what the true meaning is,” Robert shared.

He continued, “When you’re doing them, I mean, there were months at a time where I’m like, ‘Am I…I actually, honestly, have no idea if I’m even vaguely understanding what’s happening.’ And yeah, I would definitely say that to John David. On the last day, I asked him a question about what was happening in a scene, and it was just so profoundly the wrong take on the character. And it was like, ‘Have you been thinking this the entire time?’”

Robert added that John David also had some confusion on the plot, too, at first.

“There’s definitely a bond in the end in kind of hiding the fact that maybe neither one of us knew exactly what was going on. But then I thought, Ah, but John David actually did know. He had to know what was going on.”

Tenet is still set to debut in theaters when they reopen and the director revealed an interesting fact about one iconic scene you watch in the trailer.
