OK! announces in a headline, “Robert Pattinson & Nicole Kidman Team Up for ‘Bel Ami.’”
Citing the original source of the story, ScreenDaily.com, OK! reports “Robert Pattinson will star opposite Nicole Kidman in the erotically charged film Bel Ami” about a masterful seducer.
This story was picked up EVERYWHERE.
So is it true?
Well, yes, it is based on a novel by Guy de Maupassant, and yes, Pattinson will play a cad.
What’s NOT true is that Kidman will star opposite Pattinson. While she did consider the project, the film’s timing didn’t work out. Kidman’s rep told Gossip Cop that “Bel Ami” is “categorically not happening for her.”
