I keep reading that hidden beneath all the white makeup and sparkles, lies a solid actor.
I speak, of course, of Robert Pattinson. The glitterly, monotone vampire who makes teenage underpants burst into flames at the mere mention of his name.
Pattinson has a few projects coming up after the epic belly-gnawing extravaganza that will be Breaking Dawn, and one of the more interesting will be Bel Ami. The film stars Pattinson as a voracious social climber in 1890’s Paris, a man determined to bed his way to wealth and fame. Along the way, he encounters Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci, and Kristin Scott Thomas. All of whom are about 47 leaps up from K-Stew’s Bella… but don’t tell the Twitwits I said that.
The film is directed by first-timers Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, based on the short story by turn of the century Flaubert protege Guy de Maupassant.
Here are the first images from the film. It looks suitably dramatic and full of restrained passion.
