The Batman’s Robert Pattinson has shared his love for Final Fantasy 7 and the Cloud, Aerith, and Tifa “love triangle” that caused him a lot of (Cloud) strife growing up.
Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz were being interviewed by Clique and Pattinson began excitedly talking about Final Fantasy 7, specifically the difficult choice of having to choose to fall in love with Aerith or Tifa.

“I was in love with Aeris & Tifa,” Pattinson revealed. “It’s the two options of girls… It’s a love triangle where Aeris, or Aerith depending on what version of the game you have… its sometimes mistranslated. She’s really kind girl that has superpowers to heal everyone and make the world a better place…”
“Poor women, we have to heal everyone,” Kravitz interjected. “It’s exhausting.”
“And Tifa is this sexy little thing, she’s like a thief and wears this short skirt, and you’re like, ‘I can’t decide!’ Then Aerith, right at her peak, gets killed,” Pattinson continued. “This is how every guy who plays figures out what love is…”
“The one that’s going to heal everything and the one in the short skirt? These are the options? Oh my god, this is the problem with the world,” Kravitz responded.
During his press tour for Tenet, Robert Pattinson revealed to GameSpot that Final Fantasy 7 was his favorite game of all time. He even admitted that it was one of the few times he cried in his life when Aeirth, his “first love,” was killed by Sephiroth.
