Pattinson is a great actor, says Uma Thurman
Uma Thurman has praised the acting skills of Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
The actress, who stars alongside him in the forthcoming period drama Bel Ami, said she thinks he is "going to be a really serious actor" in the future.
Speaking to MTV News, she said: "I think he's incredibly concrete in his presence on the set and obviously is very handsome. [He] is a very nice person and he's sensitive. He's present... He's a really good actor."
Thurman described him as an "old-world movie star" who has "a lot of weight behind him".
"I don't think he was knocked down by all the women they threw at him [during the filming of Bel Ami], which I think is probably lucky for him," she added.
Speaking recently to MTV First, Pattinson revealed that he would like to star in a superhero movie in the future.
However, the actor joked that comic book fans might not be too happy to see him on screen portraying their heroes.
