George Clooney never made it a secret that one of his biggest cinematic regrets was taking on the role of Batman, which included wearing a costume complete with artificial nipples.
But even if the actor kept saying that 1997’s Batman & Robin is a part of his filmography that he would very much like to forget, he was asked about it at the New York City premiere of his new film The Tender Bar on Tuesday. During a Q&A session after the film, Clooney was asked if he would ever consider taking Spandex Unitard and Kap again, to which he himself replied in a depressing way, “I made a superhero movie and I did it so badly that it would not leave. me close to the set. “He then added,” I do not want to get into all the bat nipples, “referring to a very remarkable design element of his costume for the film. He concluded, “My job, where my bread is buttered, is the kind of movies I grew up in the 60s and 70s, which is kind of the prime time for American movies that were all based on history. “
Earlier this month, he also said Variety that he will not leave his wife, Amal Clooney, or her four-year-old twins watch the movie because “there are certain movies I just go to, ‘I want my wife to have a respect for me,'” and added, “It’s bad when your four-year-old child goes, ‘This is pressing.’ That could be painful. ”And in December 2020, the Oscar winner also opened up about his disastrous tour as Caped Crusader in an interview on The Howard Stern Show. Clooney admitted Stern that it hurts him “physically” to watch his “terrible” performance Batman & Robin. “The truth of the matter is, I was bad at it. Akiva Goldsman– who won the Oscar for writing since then – he wrote the screenplay, and it’s a terrible screenplay, he will tell you. I’m terrible at it, I tell you. Joel Schumacher, who had just died, led it, and he would say, ‘Yes, it did not work.’ We all whispered about it, “he said.” I could not have done it any other way. “
