Kristin Scott Thomas talks Bel Ami, Corsets, and Rob

COPIED AND PASTE

Kristin Scott Thomas took a break from filming to attend the Giles Deacon show, but she won’t have any trouble slipping back into her period costume on the set of “Bel Ami,” an adaptation of the 19th-century novel by Guy de Maupassant. “I quite like wearing corsets,” the British actress mused. Her co-stars include Uma Thurman, Christina Ricci and Robert Pattinson, but Scott Thomas said she had seen no evidence of the “Twilight”-induced hysteria that Pattinson routinely unleashes. “I keep hearing he’s fantastically megafamous, but you wouldn’t know it. He doesn’t have hundreds of people trailing him,” she said.

ORGY WITH ROBERT PATITNSON IN BEL AMI

THIS SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. I (MARIXALUVSROB) FOR ONE IS VERY EXCITED!

COPIED AND PASTE

KENT NEWS: The trustees of an old pump house which is being used to film a steamy orgy scene with Twilight heart-throb Robert Pattinson said they had no idea the shoot would be so raunchy, writes Chris Murphy.

Film company Redwave Films is taking over the Crossness pumping station in Erith for three days of filming next week.

Pattinson is starring in Bel Ami, and plays lothario reporter Georges Duroy who sleeps his way to the top of the business and seduces wealthy women.

Kill Bill star Uma Thurman is also on the cast list, as his wife, in the film based on the classic novel by Guy de Maupassant.

And Christina Ricci stars as Clotilde de Marelle, alongside Kristin Scott Thomas, both of whom fall under his spell. The crew have been on site for 10 days preparing the sets and will spend three days taking it all down again.

The orgy scene will take place in a Parisian café being created in the Victorian landmark that will be open to the public later this year.

Pattinson, 23, who has also starred in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, said: “There is a lot of sex.”

He told movie bible Variety: “It’s a totally amoral character. In Paris, everybody was just going nuts.

It was like the 1980s. Sex was a kind of a weapon and a tool, and it’s odd.” Of the sex scenes, he said “there’s something very mercenary about it in a lot of ways”.

The station was opened by the Prince of Wales in 1865 and is undergoing renovation helped by lottery funding, government money and £20,000 from the film company.

The station was built to pump London’s sewage into a reservoir before it was discharged into the Thames at high tide.

The station houses the largest rotative beam engines in the world, built by James Watt and Sons, but these will be covered up by the film set.

Both the building and the cast-iron machinery are being restored to their former glory by the Crossness Engines Trust and the station is open to the public by appointment before its general opening this year.

Pump station trustee Mike Jones had no idea there was going to be a romp on site.

He said: “I am on the set for one of the days, so that should be interesting. It is so cold in here I can’t think anyone would want to perform something like that.

“I’m sure it will all be done in the best possible taste. I’d no idea what they were going to film, only that it was a Parisian café.”

The station is being transformed into a 19th century French dining room to shoot the scene.

One source said: “It will be tastefully done with lots of candlelight and lace, but it will be the sexiest thing Robert’s ever been seen in and will get his female fans even more excited.”

A spokesman for the film said: “It will be really great fun filming in Kent. This is a great location.”

The movie is due out next year.

ROBERT PATTINSON WAS RELIEVED TO NOT WEAR MAKE-UP

COPIED AND PASTE

Robert Pattinson has admitted that it was a relief not having to wear make-up for his latest role in Remember Me.

The actor, who plays a college student in the romantic drama, insisted that he was attracted to the script because it didn't subscribe to the "typical teen movie" stereotype.

The 23-year-old told Teen Hollywood: "It's different. I feel like I'm missing out on something. It's nice. It's kind of a relief especially not having all the make-up on. That was one of the main things."

He continued: "I read it after the first Twilight film and I always kind of liked it. It was always in the back of my mind and the opportunity came up in between the second and third ones; only a small period of time so you can only do a certain type of movie. I was trying to remember all the little things that I'd read and that was kind of perfect."

Pattinson added: "It didn't need any real prep time or anything and there was something different about it. It didn't fit into a typical teen movie type of thing. I hadn't really read a script like it and it seemed quite realistic and I found the character to be very accessible for me. I'd always really connected to it and I don't really know why."

Remember Me, starring Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin, arrives in US cinemas on March 12 and in the UK on April 2.

EMILIE DE RAVIN DID NOT KNOW WHO ROBERT PATTINSON WAS BEFORE SHOOTONG REMEMBER ME

COPIED AND PASTE

Remember Me star Emilie De Ravin has said she didn't know who co-star Robert Pattinson was before the movie.


De Ravin, 28, who also played Claire in US drama Lost, admitted that she wasn't aware of his level of fame prior to shooting the film.


She said: 'I didn't really know who he was! I've never been a tabloid reader or a person who follows what somebody is going to the grocery shop for.'


De Ravin added: 'The fan base is wonderful. But shooting with Rob in New York was crazy. There were girls climbing all over him, which did make things difficult.


'He'd been through it all before, but it was very new to me. Because the majority of fans were teenage girls, I felt like: 'Oh, God, they all hate me!''
