The 33-year-old said part of the attraction is tackling a role no one would expect from him, just like his latest release, psychological horror movie The Lighthouse”.

Talking about his movie, the actor shared what prompted him to sign the movie and the reason is quite hilarious. He shared, “I’m like, ‘Get to have sex with a mermaid, and constantly naked. I have a cool moustache'”.

“I love finding something where I have absolutely no idea how to do it. I don’t approach parts if there’s something relatable. If I was going after parts which seem somehow relatable to my real self, I would be consistently playing chronically insecure losers.”

Agreeing with Pattinson, Lopez said, “I think that’s what people don’t understand about actors and their choices. It’s about finding something you haven’t done.”
