Robert Pattinson breaks hearts, beds in 'Bel Ami' trailer
Robert Pattinson's much anticipated "Breaking Dawn" sex scene might not hold an oil lamp to the action in the actor's upcoming period piece, "Bel Ami," if a trailer leaked Friday is any indication.
In a web of French intrigue and bedsheets, Pattinson plays a "penniless" soldier who's trying to break into society. Turns out the young man fortunately has some, um, skill when it comes to entertaining the wives of powerful men at the core of Parisian society.
A trailer for the film, posted early Friday and then taken down, shows RPattz courting beauties played by Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas. His amply notched bedpost soon gets the better of him, and heavy breathing, high stakes and lots of corridor-running ensue.
Worry not, Rob watchers: The dedicated staff of the Ministry's Gratuitous Beefcake and Cheescake department will keep watch for the clip's comeback and post it the moment we can.
In the meantime, tell us in comments whether "Bel Ami" sound like something you'd like to see. And for the record -- that weird hairstyle he's been rocking belongs to his "Cosmopolis" character, Eric Packer.
