Robert Pattinson was interviewed recently by The Scotsman , and had this to say about playing a cad in Bel Ami and easing his “fear of the vagina.”
While Pattinson returns to shoot the final episode, Breaking Dawn, in October, at least in between he’s managed to squeeze in another adult role – an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s 19th-century novella Bel Ami – to further show there’s more to him than teen pin-up.
Indeed, if the gay love scenes of Little Ashes didn’t fluster his female fanbase, playing Bel Ami’s hard-living journalist and social climber surely will. As a cad of the first order, the film pits him against a legion of female co-stars, including Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. So did that help his curious little phobia? “You mean did it ease my fear of vagina?” he says. “It’s funny, playing this character that uses them all and uses sex as a weapon. He just destroys these people’s lives in such horrible ways – it’s so strange for me to be playing that part.”
