London: Actress Uma Thurman, who is currently working with Robert Pattinson on their upcoming movie "Bel Ami" feels her co-star is a "serious actor".

Speaking to MTV News the actress said: "Robert Pattinson is, I think, going to be a really serious actor. 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.

"Yes, he`s extremely dashing, like an old-world movie star. But he`s got a lot of weight to 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," quoted her as saying.

The film is being directed by Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod.
