However, Christopher Nolan had caught his lie. In an interview with Irish Times, the Twilight star opened narrated the hilarious story. "It's funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies," Robert began while adding, "And then I had to be really secretive about Batman stuff. So I had to lie to Chris about having to go for a screen test and I said I had a family emergency. And as soon as I said 'it's a family emergency' he said: "You're doing the Batman audition, aren't you?"

The maximum workout I do most of the time is a casual stroll. John David can run all day long. It was good that I ended up being pretty fit. But definitely, at the beginning, there were days I just could not walk afterwards," the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire actor told the portal.
Talking about Tenet, the film is touted to be an action epic with a time travel angle to it.
