What does Robert Pattinson have to do to get a one-night stand around here?!
The British actor's hands are full and his promises are empty in Bel Ami, this year's big-screen adaptation of the 1885 Guy de Maupassant novel, out today on DVD and Blu-ray.
And it's not hard to believe, judging by this clip exclusively obtained by E! News, the book's full title when it was published in English in 1903: Bel Ami, or, The History of a Scoundrel: A Novel.
Then, he beds Scott Thomas, who at 52 to his 26 is literally twice his age, and gets rid of her in the nick of time before Ricci shows up.
What a cad!
At least Pattinson's real-life persona doesn't seem to reflect his art—not this film's art, anyway—one bit.
