Robert Pattinson chooses Bel Ami Role for it’s irony

In a brand new interview today, Robert Pattinson talks about why he was drawn to the Bel Ami script and the character of Georges Duroy.

"he kind of screws them over and steals their money and stuff. "

Do you see yourself trying to sort of make a big gap between Twilight and everything else you do so people realize there this…something so different from the phenomenon that everybody focus on?

More to you…

Robert: No, I don’t really focus on trying to do it, I don’t think. I pick scripts the same way, I think, that I’ve always done. I barely like anything, and so it’s kind of easy to pick your jobs. The things which I’m signed onto now are all completely different. Like I’m playing a white Comanche in one thing and the parts completely in Comanche.

Bel Ami is, I thought there was a kind of irony in Bel Ami as well, because a lot of the women are attracted to this character and then he kind of screws them over and steals their money and stuff. (laughs) Which I thought was quite funny compared to the Twilight character. (laughing) It’s kind of the polar opposite. It wasn’t intentional, I just thought Bel Ami was very funny, and it’s a very interesting character. With Remember Me, I’d never done a simple story before, and it’s not that simple, but its playing a normal guy and trying to relate to things on a normal level it’s kind of relief in a lot of ways.

**English Accent in Bel Ami confirmed via the following statement made in the interview**

Ironically I’ve only had a dialect coach for this film I’m doing now, which I’m doing now in an English accent. (laughs) I guess I’ve forgotten how to do an English accent.

    That’s interesting about the accent, thought it would be ridiculous for them to do French accent while speaking English! Rob is so funny :))), I love how he defined his character. I think he was so fed up with Edward that he just chose a completely opposite character and lots of sex compared to painfull face expressions in Twilight (I love Twilight, don’t get me wrong but poor Edward suffers a lot there).
