Who could possibly be hot enough to be Rob’s body double in Bel Ami?

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve heard the news that Bel Ami is gonna be chock full of sex scenes. You don’t even have to read the script to know this about the movie.  So let’s cut to the chase.  You know you’ve thought it.  Every woman with a pulse is wondering if this means we’ll get to see Robert Pattinson’s bootay.

Get my thoughts on the issue after the jump..

Will we get full frontal?  Will we see that famous asscandy (and JAG will die)?  Or will they use a body double? Or a stunt bum.

No stunt bum could ever hold a candle to this bum

He clearly didn’t have a body double on the set of Little Ashes.  But that was then. This is now.  He has power now.  Status.

But would the infamously shy and reserved actor actually want to do a nude scene? He seemed ambivalent about nudity in his most recent Nov 2009 Ellen Interview.

Fast forward to 5:45 to see Rob flounder.

“Aah, uh, oh, um, I’m, pfft. Maybe.  I dunno.  If there’s a…  It’s definitely a risk.  Definitely a risk..  Especially in my”

(My translation ends here – I’m not good at the British to American translations when the mumbles begin)

My personal opinion?  I think we’ll get shirtless sex scenes with lots of exposed skin.  But I don’t think we’ll see much more of Rob then we’ve already seen.  And that’s not saying much since we saw the lower stomach V-shape in New Moon and the shaft in Little Ashes. What more could you want? Sometimes it’s best when it’s left to the imagination.

The V. What a great day to forget a belt

But just in case my theories are wrong, I’m putting in my application to be Christina Ricci’s body double.

    LOL! I still get chills when I watch that Ellen interview. The crowd’s reaction, his reaction, that laugh of his. Butt I digress 😉

    I can’t imagine we’ll get full frontal nudity of Rob in this movie, butt I do think we will get to see some butt clenching, and then I’ll be clenching, and then…Gah!

    Good call on signing up early to be a stunt double, though. Hope that works out for you. LOL!

  2. 17forverlisa says:

    LMFAO! I just realized I typed “stunt” double instead of body double. However, maybe in this case, it would be more fun to be a stunt double 😉

    can’t imagine ROB showing more than he already has:) but I’ll settle for him wearing briefs:) I know he’ll look delicious, as usual:) so hard to keep my mind of the gutter:)

    • WastingTheMorning says:

      Did they wear briefs back in the 1800’s? Would that be historically correct? Maybe big puffy knicker looking things.

  4. Just a Girl says:

    Mmmm I like mystery, I don’t need to see it all. My vote is for butt cleavage…Rob’s butt cleavage not a stunt bum. And maybe some cheek…yes a little cheek would do just fine.

  5. HappyZolushka says:

    agree with JAG, better a little of Rob’s than more of a double’s

    I love this man as much as the next red blooded human on the plant but please, let’s not kid ourselves into saying that Rob Pattinson has a nice body. It’s not his strongest asset. The picture from New Moon is not hot (and I still say airbrushed) and Little Ashes – oh my goodness – I just wanted to take him to a personal trainer myself after seeing that scene in the mirror.

    That said, given his aversion to working out, I bet Rob himself is probably the one insisting on a body double.

    With THAT said, I think he’s a perfect Georges Deroy, but let’s please hire Paul Wesley for a body double.

    • Just a Girl says:

      I love his everyman body in his everyman manties (fruit of the looms lol) No body double required to keep me happy. 🙂

    • WastingTheMorning says:

      Just wanted to clarify that I have no idea if they’ll actually use a body double in Bel Ami. This post is pure, fun speculation 🙂

      With that out of the way, I’m pretty sure that if I saw Rob’s Little-Ashes-condition body walking down the beach, I would be drooling. But I’ve always been drawn to men who spend more time in the bedroom than in the gym!

      More cushion for the pushing!

      • Mary says:

        LOL! “More cusion for the pushin”. And what “pure fun speculation” this is indeed. Funny.

        Rest assured, I would not kick his Little Ashes cushy tushy out of my bed for any kind of reason. However, I would like my George Duroy to look like Paul Wesley from the neck down but definitely want my adorable pouty soulful Robert from the neck up. 🙂

    • rocknmovies says:

      Rob worked out for New Moon and it showed. You can keep your Paul Whatshisname for American movies, he is not needed in European films.

    • rocknmovies says:

      Just wanted to add: men in the 19th century in Paris boudoirs didn’t have bodies like guys do on California beaches today. And Rob had a very nice body in New Moon, thank you. Rob is tall and lean. He is not an overworked out idiot who spends his time in the gym, who can only talk about gym, fitness diet and abs. A good thing too, because he would be a huge yawn!

      • Arkansas says:

        So right! Who says he has to be so muscled up to be a good actor? He is beautiful the way he is. It would be disgusting if he pulled a “Carrot Top” on us!

    • larice says:

      Yeah, let’s get Taylor Lautner short overmuscly body to double for Rob… LOL! Rob worked out for New Moon and his body looked very nice in it, and if you think his body is the same as in Little Ashes, you have an eyesight problem.

    • Just a Girl says:

      I have an eye sight problem, I may have to feel my way around Rob’s body before I can make an educated assessment *wink*

  7. Natalia says:

    I vote for Rob’s hot body, even some small bits, much better than the stunt’s one. Hey, does Uma have a body double? I think I might fit hers LOL. Just need to tear my butt off the chair. Robby, I’m coming, wait for me honey! :))). Did they start filming already?

    • WastingTheMorning says:

      The line forms behind me! 🙂

      • Tesha Cullen says:

        I’m in line toooooooooooooooo!!!

      • Natalia says:

        Woohooooooo, you mean there is competition out there? lol.
        My dream was always to become a make up artist for movies, I love messing with faces, and Rob’s face is just so sinfully gorgeous and attractive, I would screw the make up all the time just to spend more time around him lol. Oups, I need to stop dreaming, need to start the exercises for that body double job :).

  8. rocknmovies says:

    I don’t see why he should get a body double. The film is being shot in London not in Hollywood and not a big budget. He didn’t have a body double in Little Ashes or in New Moon. Why should he have one in Bel Ami? I doubt there will be frontal nudity.
    Some should see the French film adpatation of “Lady Chatterley’s lover”, plenty of frontal nudity, and it was not even sexy or controversial. Just naked bodies.
    Good old puritanism…

    • Natalia says:

      I’m all for not having any body doubles, his own body is just perfect but in New Moon or Little Ashes there were no pure sex scenes and it seemes there will be quite some in Bel Ami. Let’s wait and see.

      • rocknmovies says:

        His body in New Moon and Little Ashes is different. It’s obvious he worked out for NM, it’s much better than in LA. His abs were enhanced in NM, not airbrushed. First he was very white and his skin needed definition.
        Not everybody likes overworked out bodies like Taylor Lautner’s. Besides in the time period of Guy Maupassant men didn’t look like mini bodybuilders and didn’t have big lumpy abs.

  9. Mary says:

    Ok. I feel I need to defend my comments just a wee bit. I have clearly forgotten that you all don’t know that I am the biggest Rob Pattinson luster on the planet. I would throw Paul Wesley’s perfectly chiseled body to the curb over Rob’s less than chiseled body every time. I happen to like skinny men, actually.

    That said, we all seem to agree that he’s not a chiseled body type. The role he is playing however, (if you haven’t read the book do yourself a favor and do so – best book ever) is a very sexual role and it needs to stay plausible that these women of wealth and stature would find him attractive. And let’s not forget, film is a visual art form – I don’t want to see flab thank you.

    Anyway, I think we all agree that it’s going to be yummy – and for the record, I think body doubles are stupid. Honestly, I think he’s perfect for the role but come on ladies (and gentlemen) his body could use a few trips to the gym. I think we can all agree to that. (And someone needs to teach him to stand up straight – I bet his mom tells him this everytime she talks to him – ha ha).

    • Natalia says:

      To me Rob looks great as he is, whatever shape or form :). About standing up straight, I think it’s because of his height, he is pretty tall and I have quite a tall colleague, even taller than Rob and he also has this bad habit.
      I wonder how someone gets a body double job, where do you need to study to become a body double? lol Just curious :).

    • rocknmovies says:

      His body in New Moon was very nice and had no flab, he was probably even too skinny. And men in the 19th century didn’t have bodies like bodybuilders. As long as he is lean and has no fat, he will be perfect.
      His body is attractive as it is. No need for overdevelopped muscles. And yes I have read the script, so I know George has a nice body, but not overly muscled since there is no such description in the script. And Rob has a nice lean body, thank you, perfect for the times of the story.

    • rocknmovies says:

      It’s a European film, not an American beach movie. European men are not as muscly as some American actors.

      • larice says:

        Those Americans who think everybody should look like them… hmm, there is also a lot of obesity there.
        Rob is perfect as he is, doesn’t need to hit the gym if he doesn’t want to. Nice lean body, just rightly muscled is perfect for George, no need for big bulky muscles and biceps, that’s too American, not European.

  10. Natalia says:

    Rob’s nice, lean body…you shouldn’t have said that. It’s tough not to visualize it now…

    • Mary says:

      You guys are so funny the way you’re defending him. I have a friend who laughs at me because I will always defend Rob no matter what. But you guys make me look like an amateur.

      We seem to all agree on one thing – he’s wonderful to look at and we’re all looking forward to seeing him in this movie.

      • rocknmovies says:

        I am not defending him. I am telling as it is. No need for big muscles for a period film set in Paris in the 19th century, just a lean nice body, no fat/flab. I am French so I know what I am talking about.

      • Arkansas says:

        He is wonderful to look at!

  11. spunksouth says:

    My guess is that we won’t actually see more than we already have (with the possible exception of a couple of brief glimpses of cheek). The difference will be seeing it in action – alot! But I absolutely do expect that whatever it is, it will be Rob and not a double. I can’t imagine him wanting such a thing.

  12. Natalia says:

    I hope we will get a lot of close ups with Rob’s gorgeous face during orgasm + sound effects. I think it would be more powerful than any naked body parts.

    • Mary says:

      Golly. Right you are. However, I’m not sure I’ll be able to endure seeing him that way with someone other than me. 😉

    • KittTatt says:

      Okay, I’ve been TRYING to be good about this and behave myself, but you just said Rob and orgasm in the same sentence…
      asdfg hjklkj…
      what was I talking about?
