Robert Pattinson may be hyping up the release of The Batman this week, but a new clip of him isgoing around online talking about the main waifus of Final Fantasy VII, Aerith and Tifa.
In an interview with Clique (via IGN), Pattinson reveals:
“I was in love with Aeris & Tifa… It’s the two options of girls… It’s a love triangle where Aeris, or Aerith depending on what version of the game you have… its sometimes mistranslated. She’s really kind girl that has superpowers to heal everyone and make the world a better place… And Tifa is this sexy little thing, she’s like a thief and wears this short skirt, and you’re like, ‘I can’t decide!’”
Pattinson actually took the interview with co-star Zoe Kravitz, who wasn’t impressed with the choice of girls who either just ‘heal everything’ or wear ‘a short skirt.’ Pattinson, however continues gushing about Aerith and explained, “This is how every guy who plays figures out what love is…”
With Pattinson’s status as a Hollywood hunk, it’s actually fun to watch him talk about things that are considered nerdy like video games. It even adds an extra layer of silliness that he’s trying to explain how Final Fantasy taught him ‘what love is’ to Zoe Kravitz of all people.
For now, a new generation of fans are falling in love with Aerith and Tifa thanks to Final Fantasy VII Remake. Some fans speculate that Remake might actually change the story, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
You can catch Aerith and Tifa in Final Fantasy VII Remake which is now available for PlayStation 4|5. The Batman hits theaters March 4.
