Last week, we were lucky enough to have a sneak peek at the new Robert Pattinson film, Bel Ami. As well as being a veritable treat of R-Pattz for the eyes, we found it really rather saucy! There were gasps and mini-squeals from the audience (read: us) when R-Pattz’s naked derriere flashed on screen during one particularly sexy scene.
Fans of Robert Pattinson, pictured her eare the Berlin film premiere of the movie, will be used to seeing the actor looking clean-cut and dangerously handsome as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight films so seeing him take a turn as raunchy Georges Duroy in his new flick Bel Ami may come as a bit of a surprise.
Rob admits the difference between his most recent character and his vampire alter ego is vast. He goes as far as to say old-fashioned Edward wouldn’t even approve of naughty Georges!
''I guess there's something quite fun about Bel Ami, going from Edward to playing some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them. Edward so wouldn't approve - and I thought that was a funny irony. But the story, independently, is great, so I only thought about the irony afterwards.''
Rob's Bel Ami character Georges is basically a big, naughty ratbag who works his way up the social ladder, sleeping with wives of powerful men in Paris and then leaving them to move onto another. A bit different to Mr. monogamy Edward Cullen.
''He just doesn't have a conscience. He's content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into the absolute devil. It's like in Giant, when James Dean builds the entire empire to say, 'F**k you.' He's exactly like that but without any redeeming characteristics. The whole story is these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he's about to touch it, something good happens to him again.''
