Robert Pattinson Sheds 'Twilight' Mop
Robert Pattinson wants everyone to know he is NOT Edward Cullen — not anymore. Despite chilly weather in Germany, Pattinson, 25, proudly displayed his newly buzzed hairdo at the Berlin Film Festival, where he's supporting his movie Bel Ami, in which he plays the near antithesis of the doting and upright Edward. The film, set in the Moulin Rouge-era of 1890s Paris, showcases Pattinson as a poor man who wiggles into wealthy society by sleeping with tons of women, played by Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Based on a Guy de Maupassant novel, Bel Ami has not impressed reviewers at the Festival — and neither has Pattinson. "Maybe in the hands of a strong, visionary director (roll on Cronenberg's Cosmopolis) he can outgrow Edward Cullen, and become the actor he wants to be," wrote IndieWire.com. "Bel Ami marks an early, faltering step on that path for him, and a mildly diverting Dangerous Liaisons-lite for the rest of us."
