Rob talks about another old lady – Angela Lansbury

Robert Pattinson recently talked to TimeOut London about his film, Remember Me.  In the interview, he discussed Bel Ami.

You’re currently filming ‘Bel Ami’ with Uma Thurman. You play a real swine.
‘I thought it was one of the funniest scripts I’d ever read. When they made the movie in the ’50s with Angela Lansbury, they had to change the story. The novel is about this guy who screws everybody over and seduces all these women and completely gets away with everything. And in the first film, they had to have him shot because they thought that audiences wouldn’t be able to accept it. In this one it’s the total opposite. This guy is a complete arsehole, so arrogant and stubborn and self-righteous about everything. He remains an arsehole to the end and everyone congratulates him for it.’

About WastingTheMorning

Known around the internet as "MP". Not a very good fangirl but devoted nonetheless. Loved the underlying message in Water for Elephants that was anti-cruelty. Would love to hear Sara Gruen's thoughts one day over coffee.

    That’s funny. When I read the book I was sure that Clo was gonna shot him at the end. I am really looking forward to seeing Rob in this role.

    And I have to agree, hearing Rod saying areshole would be awesome!

    I would die to hear Rob say something dirty in French, I wonder if Georges used dirty words during sex :).

    The book is really a short story, Maupassants second attempt at writing. It is poorly written and the characters are unformed and you never know what anyone really feels because the Victorians were so formal and stilted!. It will be interesting to see how this story is portrayed. Georges is a stupid uneducated slime ball who just doesn’t get what he deserves, which is to be shot!
