Robert Pattinson will draw fans to theaters because of his role as vampire Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga. The only problem is that it’s causing a bit of trouble for his newest movie, Bel Ami.
You see, in Bel Ami, Rob plays a womanizer who sleeps his way up the social ladder. And since Edward is such a sparkly vampire nice guy, Bel Ami’s executives are worried that he will alienate his current fan base of Twi-hards.
In a recent interview, Rob said, “We were really true to the book and because the guy is basically a sh*t who wins everything at the end, it’s really difficult to market it — especially with me in it. 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.'”
I’m not. I’m tired of seeing him play some sparkling vampire twit. I want to see him break out of his shell, because Edward isn’t doing anything for me. Try again, Sparklepants.
