'Bel Ami' Directors Dish About Robert Pattinson: He Never Dissed 'Twilight'

Robert Pattinson Bel Ami

Robert Pattinson is so loyal to the franchise that made him an A-lister, he never speaks badly about it!

It’s easy to make fun of Twilight for being frivolous sometimes, but Robert Pattinson will never speak badly about the role that made him one of the most famous actors in the world, his Bel Ami directors revealed during a recent interview.

“He has genuinely never said anything negative about Twilight but no one wants to be in a franchise for ever,” Rob’s director, Declan Donnellan, told the London Evening Standard, explaining that Rob, 25, wants to “expand as an actor.”

In fact, Rob wanted to branch out to a more complex character so badly, he even took a pay cut to work on Bel Ami, plus he put in a lot of time preparing.

“He read the novel and also a book I wrote about acting,” Donnellan said, adding, “and he insisted on four weeks of one-on-one rehearsal before we shot anything, which is unheard of in Hollywood.”

We love hearing about Rob being grounded. He’s the best — we can’t wait to see him in one of his most challenging roles yet when Bel Ami hits theaters in the United States!

Each day I love him more for the huge human being that he is. I really hope him to be a great successful actor. Well, he’s already for me but I believe people that don’t like Twilight need him to proves himself a little more so Rob, for you, all of my support!

Kirstin, you always say such nice things about Rob. So great.

I understand that after playing the same character for years, Rob would want to break free and improve on his craft. You can always learn, right? I think it’s admirable that he thinks that way, instead of just resting on what he’s done.

But when is Bel Ami going to be shown? Come on, already!
