Robert Pattinson Seduces Christina Ricci in New Bel Ami Clip
04.17.12 by Chris
If we have learned nothing else from the Twilight franchise, it's that a shirtless Robert Pattinson (or Taylor Lautner) equals ticket sales. The filmmakers of Pattinson's upcoming Bel Ami are hoping that is still true. In a new clip for the period movie, Pattinson seduces Christina Ricci while shirtless in bed.
In Bel Ami, Pattinson plays Georges Duroy, a journalist who gains power by manipulating and seducing rich and prominent Parisian women, including Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Ricci.
In the new clip, Pattinson's Duroy tries to convince Clotilde de Marelle (Ricci) that he "doesn't have other women." And, of course, money comes up.
Based on the 1885 novel by Guy de Maupassant, the movie is directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod. Bel Ami will be available on iTunes and on video on demand May 4. It then hits theaters June 8.
