Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz are currently in the promotional campaign for the new movie they are starring in, Batman, which is why they ended up on a recent episode of the French program Clique, where they were interviewed by Moulud Achur. How the topic of conversation ended up in Final Fantasy 7 I’m not sure, but I’m glad it did because we heard Pattinson explain the JRPG’s central love triangle while Kravitz made fun of him.
“I was in love with Aerith,” says Pattinson, reaffirming his position on the dispute between Aerith and Aerith, “as well as Tifa! Everyone wants to have both. It’s two sides; it’s two kinds of girls you can have.”
When Kravitz admits he doesn’t know Final Fantasy, Pattinson goes into full explanation mode. “This is the best,” he says. “It’s a love triangle where Aeris – or Aeris, depending on which version of the game you have, sometimes mistranslated – she’s like a very kind girl whose superpower is to heal everyone and make the world a better place.”
“Poor women!” Kravitz is joking. “We have to treat everyone, it’s exhausting.”
Pattinson continues unabashedly. “And then Tifa is so sexy, who is the thief and all, she wears a short skirt and you’re like, ‘I can’t decide! And then Aerith dies! And then Aeris, right at the peak of her career, gets killed. So every guy understands what love is.
“And the one that will heal everything, and the one in the short skirt,” asks Kravitz, “any options? My God!”
“There are two options!”
“This is the problem of the whole world,” Kravitz laughs.
Either way, please enjoy the warm glow of kinship that comes with celebrities saying a version of the conversation you might very well have yourself – whether you were the person who fell into the Final Fantasy 7 love triangle or the one who found it all thoroughly confusing. confused.
