Robert Pattinson has revealed his new flick Bel Ami contains ‘quite a bit of nudity which should have Team Edward inundating the box office for advance tickets.

The film features R-Patz playing journalist Gerorges Duroy in the period drama which he filmed earlier this year opposite Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas.

Twilight pin-up boy Pattinson has described his new character as “a morally ambiguous journalist who gradually rises from rags to riches among the Paris elite thanks to his various connections to powerful and wealthy mistresses.”

Pattinson was recently on the Jay Leno show and discussed his new role and the nudity scenes in depth.

The Hollywood heart-throb revealed he was nearly scared into convulsions before dropping his robe in front of cast and crew, but gradually relaxed when he saw the male members of the film crew were more awkward than he was, averting their eyes away anywhere.
