Robert Pattinson is clarifying the comments he made while telling a story about the dog on the Good Time set.
The 31-year-old actor previously explained that he refused to perform an inappropriate act on the dog while filming but Robert now says he was joking.
“The story I told on Jimmy Kimmel last night seems to have spiraled out of control. What didn’t come across is that this was supposed to be a joke. No one at all expected or assumed that anything like that would happen on the Good Timeset,” Robert said in a statement to JustJared.com.
He added, “We are all huge animal lovers and would obviously never do anything to harm an animal. Everyone involved in Good Time are amazing professionals and have come together to make a movie that I’m extremely proud of. I feel embarrassed that in the moment, I was trying to make Jimmy laugh, only to create confusion and a false impression.”
