In the upcoming movie ‘Bel Ami,’ Christina Ricci has the opportunity to make out with everyone’s favorite vampire, Robert Pattinson. And Pattinson’s skill at locking lips doesn’t disappoint, she said on ‘The Rachael Ray Show’ (weekdays, syndicated).
“He’s a good kisser. It’s true. It’s true,” said Ricci. “And he’s a lovely human being also. He reminded me of my best friends’ little brothers growing up. He’s just, like, a silly, fun guy. We laughed a lot. He makes fun of himself all the time. He’s adorable.”
Was Broadway always part of your plan?
No, I had terrible stage fright, so people eventually stopped bringing it up. But when I was coming back from making Bel Ami with Robert Pattinson, my agent, who also represents Laura Linney, asked me if I wanted to read for Time Stands Still, and I completely forgot I had stage fright. Literally, walking home from the audition, I was like, Oh, shit, I just remembered I hate acting in front of people. So now I’m sort of ignoring it.
I love how casually you just namedropped R-Patz. Are you a Twilight fan?
OK, first of all, publicists train you to say your credits along with your costars. You can’t be shy about self-promotion; it’s like Kathy Griffin or something. [Laughs] I’m a very lazy pop culture fan—if it involves leaving my living room, I’m pretty clueless—so I’ve never seen a single Twilight movie, and I guess I missed it when it was on Starz. But Rob’s a lovely individual.
Do you two share a love scene in Bel Ami?
We do. But he’s like your best friend’s little brother, so we would just laugh and make fun of each other the entire time. He thought it was outrageous how comfortable I was being naked. I was like, “That’s because I’m 20 years older than you.” Seriously, I’ve never felt so old in my entire life.

Christina Ricci Warns: Prepare Yourself for Robert Pattinson the Cad Source: Christina Ricci Warns: Prepare Yourself For Robert Pattinson The Cad
Moviegoers are used to seeing Robert Pattinson onscreen as the most-stand up vampire around. But Christina Ricci warns that’s going to end very soon.
Pattinson and Ricci both completed “Bel Ami” which Pattinson plays a young man rising to power in Paris using the city’s most influential and wealthy women.
“The world is used to seeing him one way, and he’s very, very different in this movie,” Ricci tells PopcornBiz from the Blackberry Torch from AT&T launch party, “But he’s an actor, that’s what it’s about. And he’s really great in this.”
Pattinson, who somehow has managed to stay a faithful and sexless through three “Twilight” films, works his way through Parisian society in “Bel Ami.” At the press conference during the “Eclipse” release, Pattinson gleefully talked about his “Bel Ami” character Georges Duroy who he called “a completely amoral, evil character.”
“He seduces his wife and seduces absolutely every single one of his wife’s friends. Any influential woman he can get he has an affair with,” said Pattison. “And then ends up screwing over the entire society and ends up making millions and millions of francs.”
Pattinson taps into some serious actresses in Ricci and Uma Thurman. His Duroy is such a cad that he not only dumps Ricci once, but several times as he rises to the top.
“We have an on-off relationship through the whole movie and I get my heart broken a few times,” says Ricci.
And does she handle her onscreen heartbreaks with less drama than Pattinson’s co-star Kristen Stewart who famously went through vampire withdrawal during “New Moon” in a big way?
“Yes, I do,” she admits. “But there’s a little screaming, but that’s par for the course for a relationship.”
While filming is complete, no official release date has not been set for “Bel Ami,” — though it looks to hit US screens in the spring of next year.
Folks who prefer the nice Rob won’t have to wait long. Pattinson will be back to his filming his faithful vampire character, Edward Cullen, in the fall for the final two “Twilight” installments.
Christina Ricci: “Rob’s an Awesome Kisser”
We had a chance to catch up with one of our fave actresses since forevah, Christina Ricci—who dished to us about her upcoming flick Bel Ami with Robert Pattinson.
“It was really fun, I mean just aesthetically we wore amazing costumes and hair and make up was great,” Ricci told us at the fab party about her new flick. “And working with Rob was amazing. He’s such a great guy, so talented.”
Well, since she brought him up we might as well get the on-set dirt from her:
“He’s just great. We’d just make fun of each other the whole time, like ‘oh my god we’re so goofy’ or ‘my accent is so bad!'”
So exactly how close do Christina and Rob get?
“We are lovers, yeah you know.”
Relax Twi-Hards. She means they are lovers onscreen for Bel Ami!
“There’s some naughtiness,” the adorable Ricci said with a smirk when we grilled her on whether we get some good love-scenes, adding there are “lots” of them.
Natch we had to ask the question on all of our minds. Is Rob a good kisser?
“Um yeah,” Christina smiled. “He is pretty much awesome.”
Christina Ricci Dishes on Kissing Robert Pattinson
At last night’s Blackberry Torch launch in L.A., Christina Ricci couldn’t contain her feelings for her Bel Ami co-star Robert Pattinson. “We would just goof off and laugh while we were working—he’s a sweet guy and super funny…and a really good kisser!” she told us. And what was her favorite part of filming? “The costumes, the makeup and… Rob!” But Ricci admitted she hasn’t even seen the films that are responsible for his fame. “I was waiting for [The Twilight Saga films] to be on TV because the theaters were so crowded, but there’s no excuse!” Ricci also said it’s easy to understand why Kristen Stewart, who stopped by the set several times, is so smitten with her Twilight and real-life co-star Pattinson: “He’s so charming and such a smart guy. He’s so super organized and in charge of his career. He was actually giving me advice!” the veteran actress said.
