Robert Pattinson hit the red carpet yesterday evening for the Berlin Film Festival premiere of his Bel Ami. He joined up with leading ladies Holliday Grainger and Christina Ricci in front of the assembled photographers. The trio were out earlier in the day as well for their Bel Ami press conference. During the morning chat, Robert discussed playing a bad guy in the movie, his character, Georges. Robert also talked about how he's changed since first reading the script and making the movie in 2010, in addition to how the project differs from his Twilight series. Robert said:

  • On why he decided to do the movie: "It's funny, the structure of Bel Ami and the character of Georges really rarely comes up in movies anymore because he's completely unrepentant, and normally a movie has to teach somebody a lesson nowadays. It was quite fun playing that."
  • On how he's changed since shooting the movie in 2010: "I read the script a long time ago. I was pretty young. I think I've changed a little bit. I kind of understood that. You create an empire just so you can sh*t on someone else. I think I've grown up a little bit. I'm not as horrible."
  • On how the audiences should differ from Twilight to Bel Ami: "I guess my responsibility, I think, it's not necessarily to give anything back other than try and do the best work you can. You get an audience for doing certain jobs, so I think the biggest disservice you can do to your audience is trying to repeat the same thing and to come just to get money or whatever. If a Twilight audience would come watch Bel Ami, it's a movie that I wouldn't have thought that audience would go to, so I think that in some way, it's kind of doing a service to someone. I felt like I learned a lot from it."
