“My character, Connie, has this affinity with dogs. He thinks he is a dog in a previous life and he thinks he has control over animals. There’s this one scene we shot — there’s a drug dealer who busts into the room, and I was sleeping with the dog and basically giving the dog a hand job,” the actor continued. “I asked the trainer [about it] because the director was like, ‘Just do it for real, man! Don’t be a p—!’ And the dog’s owner was like, ‘Well, he’s a breeder. I mean, you can. You just gotta massage the inside of his thighs.’ I was like, ‘Just massage the inside of his thighs?’ I didn’t agree to do the real one, so we made a fake red rocket.”
Gross! Thankfully, Rob refused to do the scene that was asked of him, and now he is being praised by PETA for his stance.
“Robert Pattinson is our kind of guy (and everyone’s who has a heart) for refusing to masturbate a dog — which is like child molestation — and for talking about it so that the public can see that once again animal trainers’ top priority is money and animals’ interests and well-being are often ignored. PETA is currently investigating whether the law was broken in this instance.” said PETA Sr. VP Lisa Lange in a statement to The Wrap.
