The Herald has an interview with Rob that appears new, but we're pretty sure they're mixing some old quotes in there. Either way it's a good read, with Rob talking extensively about his character in Bel Ami.
"It's like in Giant," Pattinson continues, referring to the 1956 George Stevens picture starring James Dean, "when he builds the entire empire to say 'f*** you'. Duroy is exactly like that but without any of the redeeming characteristics. The whole story is about these people trying to beat him down into remorse, and just as he's about to touch it, something good happens to him again.
"And then he has another run of luck, right at the end, until eventually he stabs everyone in the back and then wins the lottery. It's a happy ending for him and no-one else."
