Bel Ami Producers Worried About Alienating Audiences

Don't make this Bad boy into something he's not #boring

Robert Pattinson admits that Bel Ami is still in editing because studio honchos are worried about alienating audiences used to his goody-two-shoes persona in the Twilight franchise.

RPattz plays the titular Bel Ami in an adaptation of Maupassant’s classic novel about a 19th century womanising, social-climbing journalist who sleeps his way round Paris.

Filming in the UK and Budapest opposite leading ladies Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas wrapped in spring 2010 and was originally slated for a Christmas release. It currently has no confirmed opening date.

“We were really true to the book and because the guy is basically a shit who wins everything at the end it’s really difficult to market it – especially with me in it,” Pattinson tells TF exclusively.

“Everyone’s worried that everyone’s going to be thinking, ‘Oh I want him to be nice, he’s got to be nice to all the ladies’.”

Bel Ami, though, is an unrepentant cad. “I know,” laughs the Water For Elephants star, “But that was fun!”

Bel Ami-Era Lace Damask Wallpaper is All The Rage… Again

Thanks to Robpattznews for spotting this story out of Scotland. The Independent reports that a small Scottish lace mill, Morton Young & Borland, is making it big in Hollywood by supplying various movie sets with 1920s-era lace wallpapers. These stylized wallpapers adorn the walls of Bel Ami’s mansions as seen in this picture:

Side note: If you look at the background of our website, we have a grunge damask wallpaper that we envisioned would look like the walls of Georges’ dingy room in the opening scene of Bel Ami.
