Robert Pattinson- Bel Ami

Rob Pattinson was recently interviewed by ELLE Magazine. In this exclusive interview, Pattinson talks about his new role as Georges Duroy in the novel based movie- Bel Ami. Unlike Pattinson's vampire role in the Twilight Saga (which has female fans crazed and obsessively in love), he acts as an unethical, contemptuous and cynical journalist in Bel Ami. What a difference?! This should be quite interesting, I'm excited to watch!
 Here's an excerpt of Pattinson's interview with ELLE:

ELLE: How great a novel is Bel Ami?
ROBERT PATTINSON:  Amazing. One of my favorites. The script was really good too; Duroy has kind of changed a little bit.
He’s so cynical in the book, but now he’s so convinced that he knows everything and that he’s been wronged, that he ends up being very earnest. He realizes that the whole world he lives in is based on a lie; it angers him so much that he basically wants to burn the whole thing down…and in trying to enjoy everything, he becomes what he hates most: a pompous little shit.
ELLE:  Was it fun playing a ladies’ man instead of a celibate?
RP: Completely. I thought it was funny as well—Twilight having quite a bit of a female audience—to play a guy who basically screws women out of money. I like the fact that you never hear of a movie where the bad guy stabs every single person in the back and then wins.
ELLE:  So you relished playing a sleazy journalist?
RP:  I like the section where he gets a job as a gossip writer and in a completely banal way just makes stuff up—uses the same story and changes the names. I think that still is very, very true.
