The Batman star Robert Pattinson has opened up about how he'll sometimes 'make something up in an interview'.
Pattinson, who first found fame as Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, has revealed how answers he has given in past interviews have sometimes 'come back to bite him' when they have been exposed as not actually being factually accurate.
In a recent interview, the 35-year-old has since admitted to what a few of those porkies are.
Sitting down with GQ, Pattinson revealed that he lied about not washing his hair to chewing gum brand Extra in 2009.
At the time he stated: 'It's like, I don't clean my apartment 'cause I don't care. I have my apartment for sleeping in and I have my hair for just, you know, hanging out on my head. I don't care if it's clean or not.'
The lie about whether or not he washes his fair was the first in a few fibs relating to his appearance too.

However, in a later interview with MovieMaker, Pattinson revealed that it had been a joke which 'really came back to haunt' him.
'I just always think it’s really embarrassing to talk about how you’re working out. I think it’s like an English thing. Unless you are in the most unbelievable shape, where people are just genuinely curious, going, 'How have you achieved, like, physical perfection?’ or whatever. [...] You're playing Batman. You have to work out,' he explained.
In his most recent interview with GQ, Pattinson explained how he found an 'interesting thread' in his latest role as Batman.
'He doesn’t have a playboy persona at all, so he’s kind of a weirdo as Bruce and a weirdo as Batman, and I kept thinking there’s a more nihilistic slant to it. ’Cause, normally, in all the other movies, Bruce goes away, trains, and returns to Gotham believing in himself, thinking, I’m gonna change things here,' he said.
When asked how he expects the film to be received by DC fans, he reflected: 'It all depends. If people like the movie, it’s great. All of it [...] You never really know until it happens.'
The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, and starring not only Pattinson, but Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, is set to hit cinemas on March 4.
