AceShowbiz - Report said that Charlie Hunnam rarely spoke with co-star Robert Pattinson when both filmed "The Lost City of Z", sparking speculation that the two actors had a feud. However, during "The Lost City of Z" premiere in Los Angeles, Hunnam explained the reason why he chose not to know Pattinson better during the production of the movie.
"There was something really exciting about the idea of not knowing someone, just letting a relationship exist exclusively on the screen," Hunnam told Entertainment Tonight. "So, I had decided that I wanted to do that, but sometimes that can be alienating, and [can] put another actor off of their work and I don't want to be that selfish," he added.
Hunnam later said that Pattinson treated him the same way. "I started playing this game with Rob and he just started playing it right back," he said. He went on saying, "I think we both really understood what we were doing and there was no real contention or beef between us-we were just playing the game."
Hunnam insisted that he didn't have any hard feelings towards Pattinson. In fact, he suggested that he eventually could make friend with Pattinson just fine. He said, "It's nice actually to come out of that fog of the production and see that he's a lovely guy." He continued. "I can actually enjoy having a drink with him now and a hang."
On the other hand, when Pattinson was asked about the matter, he said that it was Hunnam who ignored him. "I didn't ignore him," said Pattinson. He added, "Well, whatever, maybe... I thought he was ignoring me." He later said, "I dont know. It was just the two of us in the hotel."
"The Lost City of Z" is based on David Grann 2009's best-selling non-fiction book of the same name. It follows Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), a British explorer who tried to discover an ancient city in Amazon and eventually went missing in 1925. The movie was premiered on October 15, 2016 at New York Film Festival and received critical acclaims.
The synopsis reads, "Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as 'savages', the determined Fawcett-supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide de camp (Robert Pattinson)-returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case, culminating in his mysterious disappearance in 1925."
"The Lost City of Z" is set to be released in U.S. theaters on April 14.
