Charlie Hunnam has revealed that “there was a real distance between” himself and co-star Robert Pattinson, whilst shooting adventure film The Lost City of Z.
Hunnam, who’d just finished making King Arthur, told Screen International about his distant relationship with the Twilight star:
“I had a couple of rehearsal sessions with Sienna [Miller], but I didn’t spend any time with Robert. I wanted these relationships to evolve naturally on screen. Through the work, I don’t think I said more than 10 words to Robert off camera. I didn’t know if he was just ‘in that zone’ or if he genuinely didn’t like me. There was a real distance between us.”
“I didn’t spend any time with Robert. I don’t think I said more than 10 words to [him] off camera. I don’t know if he genuinely didn’t like me.”
Hunnam says the pair have since resolved their issues though:
“He’s reached out to me subsequently, making overtures for us to be friends now, so I think it was about the work.”
The film follows Hunnam as Lieutenant Colonel Percival Harrison Fawcett, a real-life adventurer and archaeologist who disappeared in 1925 following an expedition to the Amazon to find an ancient lost city he called simply ‘Z’.
