There can never be too many photos of Robert Pattinson. awkward.
But photos from "Bel Ami," the "Twilight" hottie's upcoming costume drama? Now these are pure romantic fantasy! The suit, the sideburns, the brooding expression... these are the Pattinson pictures we've been craving!
"Bel Ami" is based on Guy de Maupassant's novel, and has Pattinson playing Georges Duroy, one of French literature's ultimate bad boys. Georges begins the tale as a poor soldier, and manipulates his way into money, power, and society. How? By romancing a string of wealthy and influential women, natch!
One look at Pattinson in that suit explains everything. What woman wouldn't be lining up to help a poor boy out when he looks that good?
It's a role that's a real departure from "Twilight" and will take all of Pattinson's skill and charm to pull off. Judging from the first photos, he's halfway there.
"Bel Ami" arrives in theaters in 2011. Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristen Scott Thomas are the actresses earning our ire for getting to share such sexy screentime with this posh version of Pattz.
