It may be one of the most famous twists in one of the best JRPGs on PC, but some people still aren’t over what happened to Aerith Gainsborough in Final Fantasy VII. That includes The Batman star Robert Pattinson, apparently, who says that Aerith was one of his first loves – he’s still not over it, it seems.
The much-anticipated superhero movie The Batman is out this week, starring Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and both have been appearing in a lot of interviews to publicise the movie.
In a televised interview with French entertainment channel Clique X, Robert Pattinson talked about Final Fantasy VII and how he “thought he was in love” with Aerith. He tries to explain the “love triangle” between Cloud, Aerith, and Tifa to Kravitz – including how Aerith is sometimes Aeris “depending on what version of the game you have”. He describes Aerith as “the kind girl who has superpowers, who can heal everyone and make the world a better place”.
