We might not know much about the private life of famous people, but we sure do know a lot about the work that went into making their films. It is no secret that many celebrities’ films are expensive and difficult to make, and it takes a lot of planning and research to get everything right. There was a story that went around about how Robert Pattinson had to rewrite the script for his latest movie, Bel Ami, because it was poorly written the first time around. This is one of the many interviews that the Twilight star gave to various publications. Below you will find some interesting excerpts regarding the making of his latest flick, as well as what he thought about while filming it. So sit back, relax, and get ready to learn. 

On Rewriting The Script For His Latest Film

“Bel Ami” was the story of a famous sculptor who falls in love with a penniless girl. He lavishes her with gifts and takes her to fashionable restaurants, but when her father objects to the couple’s relationship, the sculptor has him beaten up and then locked in a bedroom. After this happens several times, the father agrees to meet the artist alone, away from his daughter. When asked why he wrote this particular story, Pattinson replied:

I think it’s a story that a lot of men can relate to. There’s always that one person in the group of friends or at school that you just want to protect, because they’re always getting picked on or bullied or treated badly. This is that kind of story, but it’s also about being a gentleman. It’s about treating a woman right, which is something that a lot of men could use a little bit of help with.

This is one of the many reasons why people love the Twilight Saga so much, because it tackles such relevant topics as loneliness, abandonment, and finding your place in the world. It is no wonder that the films have gone on to become box office smashes, earning over $1 billion combined at the box office worldwide. As for why Robert Pattison decided to tackle these issues in the first place, he explained:

“I think [the Twilight films] are very influential. They’ve definitely opened up a lot of doors for me. People want to work with me now because of what I’ve done. Now that I’ve done those films, people think I must be a certain way, I must be a certain person, and that wasn’t true at all before. It was a very freeing experience because before I didn’t really understand what type of impact my work would have, and now that I do, I’m glad I went ahead and did those films.”

On The Importance Of Taking Stock Of What You’ve Done

Pattinson had a lot to say about the process of working on a film, particularly when it comes to the edit suite. He claims that sometimes he will go back and re-watch a section of footage, looking for ways to improve it. In order to do this, he needs to step back and take stock of everything that he’s done so far. Stressing the importance of this, he said:

“I had a good time making the movie, but it’s also tough when you’re not happy with how something turned out. Especially when you’ve put so much time and effort into it. I think the edit suite is really important, because you can always go back, and you can watch bits and pieces of the movie and see if there’s something you missed or something you could have done better. Even though it was my first time taking on such a project, I think I did a good job.”

It is important to note that the last time we checked in with Robert Pattinson, he was about to begin shooting Cosmo Cosmo, another installment in the Twilight Saga. It is no secret that the films have become something of a challenge, both creatively and professionally, and he is currently looking for ways to reduce his stress and anxiety.
