Because I appear to have confused some straight people – and, hey – the more you know – the company’s founder George Duroy, goes by a pseudonym based on the name of the character in the book “Bel Ami,” that Pattinson will play in the adaptation:
Bel Ami (adult film company)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the pornography film studio. For other uses, see Bel Ami (disambiguation).
Bel Ami is a Bratislava-based pornographic film company established by George Duroy, who is Slovak. (“Duroy” is a pseudonym based on the protagonist of Guy de Maupassant’s novel Bel Ami.) “Bel Ami” means “beautiful friend” in French.
Bel Ami’s trademarks are its exceptionally beautiful, wholesome-looking, uncircumcised Eastern European models in their late teens and early to mid-twenties, with slim, mostly muscular bodies and boyish faces who often both “top” and “bottom”.
The company quickly became known for its unique style of filmmaking, more romantic and professionally directed than the typical adult product. Besides hard and softcore videos, Bel Ami has also released several calendars and photo books, like Howard Roffman’s The Boys of Bel Ami (2006).
