Robert Pattinson, the star of “The Batman,” who plays the title role in Matt Reeves’ blockbuster, said he was asked to change his original Batman voice because it was “absolutely hideous.”

When he was on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ appeared, the ‘Twilight’ star said: “Everyone does this kind of gruff, creepy stuff, and I’m like, I’m going to do the opposite — I’m going to go whispering. And I tried to do it for the first two weeks, and it just looked awful, and they told me to stop.”

However, Robert Pattinson was comforted to know he wasn’t the only one trying to break the mold, reports

Robert Pattinson added: “I found out from Nick, who put me in the suit every day, that Christian Bale did the same on ‘Batman Begins’. And if you listen to the first ‘Batman Begins’ teaser trailer, you’ll hear the original voice. I only found out a few weeks ago. “You can feel when it feels right. You put on the suit and you have to speak a certain way.”

Pattinson went on to reveal that Bruce Wayne’s character in Matt Reeves’ blockbuster was actually inspired by the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, which inspired the actor to take the character in a different direction.

He explained: “One of the first things Matt said to me, he said, ‘He’s kind of inspired by Kurt Cobain’. I’m like, really? That’s kind of the opposite of what I imagined Bruce Wayne to be.”
