• Robert Pattinson commented on seeing his own deepfakes
  • They usually show him dancing and have appeared on TikTok
  • Pattinson says it's "terrifying," and they even fool his friends

Deepfakes are becoming more common – and convincing – as time goes by. And often, it's celebrities who are the targets for these fake-out images. 

One star who has actually seen their own deepfakes is: Robert Pattinson. But while deepfakes are sometimes used to create explicit content or spread misinformation...

It seems the creators prefer to make Robert Pattinson dance. On TikTok! Amusing as it may seem, the former Twilight actor doesn't find it all that funny.

In a new interview with ES Magazine, Pattinson said these deepfakes are "terrifying."

He explained: "The amount of people who know me quite well and will still be like, 'Why are you doing these weird dancing videos on TikTok?' It's really bizarre."

Also interesting:

"We're two years away from it being indistinguishable from reality," Pattinson added. "What on Earth am I going to do as a job then?" 

Recently, other viral deepfakes have targeted Queen Elizabeth II and Elon Musk, to name a few. And sometimes they are pretty realistic.

But if you ever see Robert Pattinson dancing around the web – well, now you know the truth...
