The Take On Rob's Character Georges Duroy Of Bel Ami

“This character uses sex and women’s huge attraction for him to get to the top of the pile,” the film’s director Delcan Donnellan explains. “It’s an unremitting world and, in the end, he gets the lot. There are no consequences for him.”

To Rob, his character Georges seems to have a selfish heart. “My Bel Ami guy doesn’t have a conscience,” confesses Rob. “Most fictional characters are driven by some target, but he is like a reverse character. He’s so content to do nothing and thinks everything should just be given to him. But if someone slights him, or directs any insult at him, the most overwhelming energy grabs him and he turns into this absolute devil who will do anything. It’s a happy ending for him and no-one else.”
Rob’s new character Georges is completely different from his role as Edward Cullen in Twilight. “With Bel Ami, there is something quite fun about going from Edward Cullen to playing a guy who pretty much abuses women to get money out of them,” Rob jokes. ”Edward so wouldn’t approve!”

“The thing that stands out in the story in Bel Ami is just his behavior – the women that he manages to screw over are all attracted to him to begin with and so he starts having affairs with them and destroys their lives afterwards,” says Rob. “That’s kind of nuts. Honestly, Bel Ami was just such an intriguing film.”
