The loyal Robert Pattinson fans out there are very likely already aware that the megastar will be showing off a lot more than just his acting talents in the upcoming film “Bel Ami.” To quote Pattinson himself , the steamy period drama will feature “a lot of my crack. … I think there’s quite a bit of nudity.”
When MTV News caught up with actress Natalia Tena (better known as Nymphadora Tonks to the “Harry Potter” fans) at the DVD premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1″ on Monday, she revealed that she is one of several lovely ladies who gets hot and heavy with Pattinson in “Bel Ami.”
When asked if she shared scenes with “Twilight” heartthrob, Tena said, “I do. Some naughty scenes.”
When we brought up the fact that the “Twilight” star told us about how much of his “crack” we’ll see, Tena added that there’s a lot more than that.
“There is a lot of everything in that,” she said. “But the thing is, I knew him before all the ‘Twilight’ stuff. We used to hang out for a bit, so it was a bit weird [during filming]. I was like, ‘All right, mate, come on, let’s do it! It will be fun!’ ”
Tena said audiences will definitely see a different side of Pattinson’s acting abilities in “Bel Ami.”
“He’s not nice at all in this,” she said. “Which is great, because he’s going to break away from that [teen heartthrob] thing and show that he can play those roles, which is so important as an actor to not stay on that same path.”
Another of his “Bel Ami” co-stars, Uma Thurman , echoed Tena’s statements during an interview with MTV News recently, calling Pattinson a “really serious actor.”
“I think he’s incredibly concrete in his presence on the set and obviously is very handsome,” she said. “[He] is a very nice person and he’s sensitive. He’s present. … He’s a really good actor.”
