Natalia Tena, who plays the Nymphadora Tonks in Harry Potter films, was recently at DVD premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. When asked if she shares screens with Pattinson in Bel Ami, the actress gushed, "I do. Some naughty scenes." She added, "He's not nice at all in this."
The movie Bel Ami is an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's novel with the same title. It is all about a man, who rises to the top by manipulating a series of powerful and wealthy mistresses. Robert Pattinson portrays Georges Duroy, while Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Natalia Tena reprise the role of Madeleine Forestier, Clotilde de Marelle and Rachel respectively in the film.
However, Bel Ami is being directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod and produced by Uberto Pasolini. It has been shot in London and Hungary. Rachel Bennette has turned Maupassant's novel into a screenplay. The drama movie is distributed by Optimum Releasing and is slated to release on May 21, 2011.
