Robert Pattinson ‘Too Old’ For Role
February 17, 2012 by staff
Robert Pattinson ‘Too Old’ For Role, British actor Robert Pattinson said on Friday he may be too old to reprise his role as the ever-youthful vampire Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” movies, should author Stephenie Meyer decide to add another novel to the series.
The 25-year-old’s status as an A-list celebrity was underlined at the Berlin film festival where crowds of screaming girls gathered to catch a glimpse of the actor.
Pattinson, sporting shaved hair, was at the festival for the world premiere of “Bel Am*”, a costume drama set in late 19th century Paris based on Guy de Maupassant’s novel about a poor man who sleeps and cheats his way to the top of society.
It marks a big step away from the “Twilight” world which turned Pattinson into a star, and will go some way to showing how versatile he is as an actor.
“I’d be curious what Stephenie would write, but I just think I’d probably be too old,” he told reporters after a screening of “Bel Am*”, which also features Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci. “I’m already too old. But yeah, it’d be kind of interesting.”
The five-film “Twilight” franchise is based on Meyer’s best-selling four-novel series. The four movies out so far have amassed around $2.5 billion at the global box office, with the final chapter due to hit theatres in November.
In “Bel Am*”, Pattinson plays Georges Duroy, a poor ex-soldier who uses his looks and charm to seduce society beauties and convince his newspaper employers to give him important jobs.
Everywhere he turns he sees slights directed at him, and his ruthless desire for revenge, power and wealth means he turns insults to his advantage, no matter what the consequences.
That sensitivity struck a chord with Pattinson when he read the script a long time ago, he explained.
