Robert Pattinson Remember Me

Is the Robert Pattinson Brand Ready to Get Physical?

Robert Pattinson wasn't at the Oscars last night because he was at work in London filming Bel Ami, where he'll play a social-climbing journalist in 19th-century Paris. He'll be married and cynical and decidedly unchaste. Are Twihards ready for it?

Though Robert acted in nine films before Twilight, he has not appeared as anyone but Edward Cullen since the movie's premiere in November 2008. His name has become synonymous with foppish, virginal, and eternal youth, but, at 23, he must grow up. This Friday we'll get the first taste of Robert Pattinson post-Twilight when Remember Me hits theaters.

Nancy deWolf Smith of the Wall Street Journal doubts his future after Twilight, saying his image relies on the fantasies of prepubescent girls, teens, and adult women (87 percent of married women said they'd leave their husbands for him . . . we suspect the number would be quite lower if the option were real). But can his heartthrob status endure movies that glisten in the night instead of sparkling through the day? I suspect he's more ready to find out than his fans.

It will give him a chance to prove his acting ability. Lots of people grow out of 'heart-throb' status into 'legitimate actor'. If he has what it takes, he'll be around for a while yet.

I also think he'll be fine. He's already an adult (and was an adult going into Twilight) so I don't think he'll have the same problem that child actors have when it comes to transitioning into adult roles. I think it's good that he's throwing himself into other movies in the middle of the whole Twilight craze too. It gives people a chance to see him as something different than Edward Cullen. I think it will, anyway... it might be hard to convince some of those alarmingly obsessed Twilight girls haha

I think he'll do fine. He just needs to survive all the naysayers.
