For ‘dirty and smelly’ Robert Pattinson can not be James Bond
The producer of the new release of the 007 saga dismissed the actor Robert Pattinson for the lead role for his “sloppy, dirty and smelly” image.
Robert Pattinson wanted to play James Bond sometime in the near future. But Pattinson allegedly doesn’t wash too often — and grunge doesn’t work for Bond.
That would put him in direct competition with Pierce Brosnan, who remains the favorite Bond ever for millions of “007″ fans worldwide.
Pattinson has the looks, but he doesn’t have the suave, cool and clean persona that Brosnan personified for the spy role in Her Majesty’s secret service.
His hair wouldn’t work for Bond at all. Brosnan’s short-back-and sides look defined James Bond. Roger Moore and Sean Connery had it too.
Then there’s the action part. Brosnan did most of his own stunts. For his part, Pattinson had to use a body double in “Twilight” for some very tame stunts.
