According to Hopscotch Films, a new clip from ‘Bel Ami’ will be released during Berlin’s International Festival, starting February 9th. They made a point to state the clip will be released DURING and not AT the festival…wonder what that means. Anyway, now we have something to look forward to before the premiere on February 17th!
In addition to her successes as an actress and her respectable reputation, Reese Witherspoon is the envy of millions of Twilighters after working alongside superstar heartthrob Robert Pattinson in not one, but two films — not to mention the fact that she’s kissed him too.
When MTV News caught up with Witherspoon recently as part of “MTV First: This Means War,” we asked her the first thing that comes to mind when she thinks of her “Water for Elephants” and “Vanity Fair” co-star.
“I would say [he is] the hardest-working person I’ve ever worked with, honestly,” she said. “[He’s] professional, hard-working, so appreciative, more grateful than I’ve ever seen anyone for where he is in life.”
Given the fact that Witherspoon has been in the business for decades and experienced every facet of being famous, we asked her to weigh in on the current fan frenzy that surrounds Pattinson wherever he goes and how it may or may not affect a person.
“I’ve never experienced what he has — going to premieres and there’s just millions of people waiting for him to touch them,” she said. “I think it must be strange, but I don’t even know how to process what he deals with and Kristen [Stewart] deals with. I don’t know.”
The Oscar-winning actress said Pattinson handles his fame very well, despite the sometimes-chaotic circumstances. “[He’s]a really cool guy,” she said.
A natural musician — he starred in the Beatles-based “Across the Universe” — Anderson worked on three projects in one year — “The River,” “The Grey” and “Breaking Dawn.”
And then? Then there’s “Breaking Dawn,” the last two parts of the “Twilight” saga. In the vampire drama, Anderson plays Alistair, a particularly complex vampire who intercedes for the Cullens. The actor read the books, saw the early films and “tried to absorb as much as I could” but knew he’d never be as savvy about the character as some of the popular books’ fans.
No sweat. “It’s nice to play against the grain of the film,” Anderson says. “He can do what he wants because he is who he is.”
The 29-year-old British-born actor, however, didn’t realize the devotion of “Twilight’s” fan base.
“I hadn’t even arrived at the motel and already there was fan mail. They figured out where I was going to be — and I didn’t even know. But every one of those letters was so genuine and so sweet.”
The creepy stuff? That was saved for other actors. “A woman was standing outside the Sutton Place in Vancouver with a pair of scissors. She had flown from England to cut some of Robert Pattinson’s hair for a doll.”
“Breaking Dawn, Part II” (slated for release in the fall) came with such high financial stakes “tension was ripe,” Anderson says. “There’s not a lot of rehearsal. So before a scene with Kristen (Stewart) I had to gun up the character from the trailer to the stage. It’s the first time you see this guy come to life. But until you get the gear on, you’re not quite sure what he’s going to be.”

We won’t be surprised one bit if we see Robert Pattinson at this year’s Academy Awards.
Yes, he’s presented at the Oscars already, but… His new flick, Bel Ami, is set for release just a few days after Hollywood’s biggest night of the year. A rep for the Twilight star didn’t comment on his possible plans to attend.
Meanwhile, Kristen Stewart is also said to be at the top of the presenter wish list. While Snow White and the Huntsman doesn’t hit theaters until June, she’d ideally be paired with her hunky fairy-tale costar Chris Hemsworth.
Mr. Hemsworth actually has two flicks, The Avengers and The Cabin in the Woods, coming out before Snow White, so what better way to promote them all in one big shot than at the Oscars?
