Robert Pattinson attended Elle's Women in Hollywood last night as one of the few male attendees. He was on hand to honor his Bel Ami leading lady, Uma Thurman. Robert Pattinson sung Uma's praises in the role, saying their director sought "someone more intelligent, more charming, wittier and better in bed than me, which was obviously very difficult to cast." He also joked about being nervous, saying, "I'm learning how to read tonight. I find this terrifying." He didn't need to be worried, since plenty of ladies seemed happy to keep him company. In addition to chatting with Uma, Rob posed for photos with Jaime King and his Twilight pal Anna Kendrick. Rob's real-life leading lady, Kristen Stewart, skipped the event. Kristen and Rob have been hanging out, though, enjoying nights and afternoons out together around town.
