Jamie Dornan Says Robert Pattinson Didn’t “Fit In” With Actor Friends
Jamie Dornan responds to Robert Pattinson’s claims that he was the last to be invited to do things among their group of friends.
The Batman star – who stated that he, Dornan, Andrew Garfield, Eddie Redmayne and Charlie Cox became friends early in their acting careers – said that he was often the “pity invite” to social gatherings.
“They were all roommates, and I was kind of the last one invited,” said Pattinson. “I was invited as an afterthought. There would be like one slice of pizza left and I’d be like, ‘Is there any for me?’”
Asked about his comments at the 2022 Critics Choice Awards, Dornan explained that Pattinson’s work on Twilight pulled him away from their group of small-time acting friends.
“The pity invite? No. I think with Rob it’s always been like, he sort of had success earlier, so we were like a bit like, ‘Does he really fit in with us?’ Because we were not working and he was working all the time,” he told Entertainment Tonight.
“He did Twilight and was suddenly in a different stratosphere than us and we’ve sort of, not caught up, but we all started working more consistently, but yeah, Jesus, we’ve known each other a long time, that group.”
Addressing Pattinson’s comments again during an interview with Access, Dornan joked: “We never left him at home. Why would you leave him at home? He’s the key. He was the good looking one. He was the one that got us in. He got us all the attention.”
“He was too successful for us, I think, early on. He was the one that got out of the traps a bit quicker than us. We all took our time. I’m still not there compared to those guys, but we had a lot of fun back in the day.”
