Bel Ami is based on Guy de Maupassant's 1885 French novel with the same name. The Hollywood movie chronicles a young man's rise to power in Paris through his manipulation of the city's most influential and wealthy women. The film features Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Holliday Grainger and Natalia Tena alongside Robert Pattinson.
“Robert Pattinson did some great acting in Bel Ami I (as a fan) never thought he was capable to!! RP performance in BA was great I saw some very strong scenes!!! It was 'a new' Pattinson I saw. all the three leading ladies were excellent too!" The Hollywood Life quotes a fan as raving about the actor.
Talking to the website, another women says, “Rob"s performance in Bel Ami is extraordinary. It"s something totally different than what we"re used. It"s amazing! HOT, NAKED ROB! Do I need to say more? Yes, we get a lovely view of Rob"s well trained but. I swear I was almost drooling throughout the entire movie."
Another woman, who watched the movie Bel Ami, can stop talking about Robert Pattinson's sex scenes. She says, “First I will give you some details on Rob"s nudity. The full naked butt scene is one of the first scenes in the movie. It"s in a dark room and you see the sex from above, his full naked back and butt. Then there were some sex scenes with Christina Ricci. Rob is just overall so incredibly sexy in this movie. The sex scene with Uma Thurman is pretty weird and no nudity in that one."
She continues, “I think Rob did a very good job, he plays angry and frustrated very well. He wasn"t very likeable, which was how it"s supposed to be, if I understand what the book is about (I haven"t read the novel Bel Ami). Basically, he"s an ass. In one scene he threw Kristin Scott Thomas on the floor, and it was just so well done, scene like that must be hard to act."
