Robert Pattinson Looking To Step Out of Twilight Glare

Robert Pattinson Looking To Step Out of Twilight Glare

Mar 30, 2011

  • Robert Pattinson is doing his best to shake off the heartthrob pigeonhole the Twilight movies have stuck him in. After starring in the critically panned Remember Me last year and the upcoming Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, the actor’s next role might turn off a few members of Team Edward. Describing his character as, “a s**t who wins everything at the end,” and claiming that the movie has been difficult to market, Pattinson plays a manipulative young man in 1890s Paris who seduces his way to wealth and fame in Bel Ami. Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas and Christina Ricci play a trio of victims used by Pattinson’s Georges Duroy. It’s kind of hard to feel bad for a guy who’s making $25 million for Breaking Dawn and that’s not including the 7.5% of the gross revenue (which could bring a final paycheck of $41 million). --Derrick Deane
