Looks like Robert Pattinson has recovered from coronavirus. The Batman actor was photographed making out with his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse in a London park on Wednesday. Waterhouse and Pattinson have been quarantining together in the city. It’s a rare sighting of the couple who have been together for over two years—and one of their most affectionate shots ever taken by paparazzi. Perhaps fighting off a deadly disease made R.Patz a little less shy about showing his love for Waterhouse in front of photographers.
The sighting comes roughly 12 days after Pattinson was reported to have tested positive for COVID-19. The diagnosis caused production on The Batman, which had just resumed, to be “temporarily paused” on September 3, according to a statement Warner Bros provided to CBS News. The studio didn’t confirm that Pattinson was the member of the production who tested positive but said the individual who did “is isolating in accordance with established protocols.”
Today, Warner Bros said in a statement released to The Hollywood Reporter that filming has begun again. “Following a hiatus for COVID 19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on The Batman in the U.K,” the Warner Bros spokesperson said.
Pattinson and Waterhouse have made a point not to talk about their relationship in interviews. Pattinson did address why he has decided to keep his love life private though in a Sunday Times interview in April 2019.
He said, “If you let people in, it devalues what love is. If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better. I can’t understand how someone can walk down the street holding hands, and it’s the same as when I do it and a hundred people are taking your photo. The line between when you’re performing and when you’re not will eventually get washed away and you’ll go completely mad.”
