Colm Meaney Speaks About Bel Ami and Robert Pattinson   Leave a comment

From Collider

You have another period piece with Bel Ami coming out. Do you enjoy doing that type of work?

MEANEY: It’s interesting because I haven’t done a lot of period work in the past, but I always wanted to because I’m interested in history. Also, as an actor, my background is in the theater and I feel that my strong suit is period work, but I actually didn’t do much of it at all, until the last three or four years. I’m loving it!

Who are you playing in Bel Ami, and what was that cast like to work with?

MEANEY: It takes place in France, in the last 1870′s and 1880′s, with all the shenanigans and wheeling and dealing going on in the business world. The story is about this young man who gets out of the army. He was an officer in the army and he goes to Paris to get a job, but he’s not doing too well. He’s down on his luck. And, he meets a friend of his who was an officer with him in the army, who works the press, and he gets him a job on the newspaper he works for. And then, he meets this guy’s wife, and he meets the wives of the editors, and he ends up having relationships with all these woman, and basically screws his way to the top. That’s the story.

It was a great cast. The three women were Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman and Christina Ricci. And, Robert Pattinson is terrific. He’s a very, very good young actor. For him, it was an important step away from the whole Twilight thing. I think they’re having some post-production questions about it, so it’s taking a lot of time to come out, but it was such a pleasure to do. Kristin Scott Thomas is such an actress. What an amazing actress. My character is married to Kristin.

Meaney, originally from Dublin, spoke about Pattinson’s screaming fans in a Late Late show interview.

“In Budapest we were shooting and it was mad because…it really was like what you would imagine was Beatlemania was like,” Meaney said.

No matter where they filmed the Irish actor said there were “screaming girls everywhere” eager to see Pattinson.

“We were shooting way out past Heathrow in a big old country house and there were these two, not girls now, women, middle aged women, who for three days were camped at the gate house of this estate

“And they camped there for three days in miserable weather hoping to catch a glimpse of him,” Meaney recalled.

Robert Pattinson’s “Bel Ami” Co-Star (Colm Meaney) Talks About Rob’s Fame   1 comment

According to Recessionista at Rob’s IMDb boards

LMAO! he was interviewed on an Irish show and asked about working with him. The interviewer said ‘they just love this guy, he’s like a one man Beatles’! Colm said girls were waiting outside the set all the time and was particularly taken aback when they were filming in the middle of nowhere in Budapest and 3 middle aged women stayed outside in miserable weather 24/7 to see him.
