Robert Pattinson’s Alter Ego Battle

Robert Pattinson in Bel AmiRobert Pattinson admits his Twilight character would not approve of his Bel Ami alter-ego.

The Hollywood heartthrob is famed for playing Edward Cullen in the vampire franchise and he admits his character in his latest film, Georges Duroy, couldn't be more different from one-woman man Edward.

"I guess there's something quite fun about Bel Ami, going from Edward to playing some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them. Edward so wouldn't approve - and I thought that was a funny irony. But the story, independently, is great, so I only thought about the irony afterwards."

Robert also says George has no redeeming features about him as he doesn't care who he hurts: "He just doesn't have a conscience. He's content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into the absolute devil. It's like in Giant, when James Dean builds the entire empire to say, 'F**k you.' He's exactly like that but without any redeeming characteristics. The whole story is these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he's about to touch it, something good happens to him again."

Kristen Stewart For Akira Role?

Kristen StewartKristen Stewart has been approached to take on the main female role in the reimagining of Akira.

The live-action adaptation of the iconic magna comic is set to start shooting in March following a script rewrite by Steve Kloves, and bosses have offered the Twilight: Saga beauty the part of Kei, a young medium who becomes the love interest for the main character, teen biker gang member Kaneda.

The original story - focusing on Kaneda and his friend Tetsuo (who has yet to be cast) - was set in post-nuclear war Tokyo in 2019, while the new movie is expected to take place in New York. Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy and Kristen's boyfriend and Twilight: Saga co-star Robert Pattinson have all been approached for the role of Tetsuo - who is saved from a medical experiment by his friend.

Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company is working on the $300 million project for Warner Brothers with Allen and Albert Hughes directing. The intention is to make two films, each covering three books in the six-part series. An animated version of Akira has already been made, released in Japan in 1988.


Robert Pattinson Gets Sick of Set Security

Robert PattinsonBreaking Dawn: Part 1's Robert Pattinson finds film sets "frustrating." The Twilight Saga actor hates the fact he has to be separated from the rest of the cast and crew on his movies for security reasons, which means he never properly gets to know anyone he is working with.

"You just wish that you could stay in a s***ty hotel and hang out with everyone. I never meet anyone, and I have to have the same conversation all the time, going over the same trivial bulls**t every time you talk to someone. I'm always separated from the crew because you have to be in an extra secure place and I don't even know people's names - it's very frustrating."

Robert - who is in a relationship with his Twilight Saga co-star Kristen Stewart - admits his worldwide fame has affected how he interacts with other people and he finds it very difficult to trust new individuals because he is paranoid they will "sell him out."

"I just try to avoid as much hassle as possible and try to find places where it's more important for them to keep your business than sell you out. Everybody wants to sell you out," he told Marie Claire.


Robert Pattinson’s Two Week Abs

Robert Pattinson only had abs for "two weeks" during filming of The Twilight Saga. The British actor admits it was tough for him to be excessively working out while playing the role of vampire Edward Cullen in the movie, and while he tried very hard to buff up like his co-star Taylor Lautner, he lapsed back into old habits after a short space of time.

"Taylor just ruined the whole series for me. As soon as he buffed up, I went, 'Well I'm throwing in the towel on New Moon. I didn't eat candy and I didn't drink any beer for a while. I went kind of nuts. Me and Kristen went nuts working out, because we hadn't worked out for any of [the previous films] I had the abs for, like, two weeks. As soon as I didn't have to be shirtless anymore, [my good habits were] gone immediately."

In the end, the hunky star admits he gave up entirely, and ate endlessly on the shoot for the last movie Breaking Dawn. "During filming in Brazil, the day before I had to do my shirtless scene, I realized my abs weren't as good as Taylor's, so I just ate every bit of chocolate in the mini-bar. I started eating cheeseburgers and stuff."

Hop continues to hang around in the top 5, earning $12.5 million to secure fourth place. Scream 4 fell to fifth, taking only $7.2 over the weekend.
