Rob talks about Georges Duroy, his character in Bel Ami

After three Twilights, Bella Swan is still a virgin. Which is one more virgin than you can expect to find in Robert Pattinson's forthcoming, sex-filled period piece Bel Ami, co-starring Uma Thurman.

"It's about a character called Georges Duroy, who is a broke ex-soldier in Paris in 1890. Basically, he has no drive. He's just jealous of everything. I quite liked the story," Pattinson says, describing his role as "a completely amoral, evil character."

Despite the European period setting, he also believes the themes are universal.

"Kids nowadays, everyone feels entitled. You see someone who wants to do a job, but they don't want to do an entry level job. 'I want $100,000 a year as soon as I'm out of the gate.'

"That's exactly what this guy is like. But he's completely talentless. The only thing he does is, by accident, he finds this guy he's in the army with in a brothel, and this other guy wants to impress him, so he gives (Georges) some money and invites him around.

"It ends up being like he invited the devil into his house. (Georges) seduces his wife and seduces all his wife's friends. Every single influential woman he can get, he has an affair with. And he ends up screwing over the entire society and making millions and millions of francs. It's a story about how the s---s can completely win sometimes, just by doing absolutely nothing and stabbing everybody in the back."

For once, we can see Rob in a character as somewhat a "villain"... but probably not somebody you would like to hate, coz can we ever hate him?!!! LOL Don't think so... :D Hope he can pull off this character. (Then again, the guy's talented.) Am actually excited to watch this film.
