Robert Pattinson’s character in Bel Ami, Georges Duroy, is the exact opposite of no-sex-before-marriage vampire Edward in the Twilight flicks.

‘There’s something fun about Bel Ami, going from Edward to some guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them, Edward so wouldn’t approve – and I thought that was a funny irony.’ The 24-year-old actor told Celebs Sunday.

‘In Bel Ami all the women my character screws over are all attracted to him to begin with, so he starts having affairs with them and destroys their lives.’ he added.
