Robert Pattinson recalls almost fainting when he first met Christopher Nolan about his film Tenet

Christopher Nolan's upcoming film Tenet is one of the most anticipated films of 2020. Nolan is known for his unique style of filmmaking and many actors want to work with him. In a recent interview actor Robert Pattinson recalled the time he first met Christopher Nolan for his film Tenet. Pattinson also said that he felt he was going to faint during his meeting.

 
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly the actor further said, "I went to meet him, and we kind of talked for three hours, and I have no idea what I’m meeting for, what the subject is,” Pattinson said. “I was actually going back through his filmography to kind of try and predict what sort of genre he would go into next. And then, after hours of talking, he finally kind said in the last two minutes, ‘So, I’ve been writing this thing and would you like to come back and read it?"
 
“There was this pack of chocolates on the table. I had a massive blood sugar drop by the end of this conversation. I thought I was going to pass out because we’d been talking so much. I was trying to concentrate so much. Finally, I asked for one of the chocolates and he immediately ended the meeting. I was like, oh my god, I fucked it up, " he added.
 
In a separate interview filmmaker Christopher Nolan called Robert's character the very definition of a fantastic supporting character. He said, "Rob plays a character called Neil in the film — or we think may be called Neil. You never really quite know what’s going on with these identities. But he’s the very definition of a fantastic supporting character. He’s a very important character to this film, but he’s very much in support of John David’s character.”
