    Robert Pattinson's Accent In "The King" Is Bonkers And People Are Loving It

    This is the best thing that's ever happened to me.

    Timothée Chalamet may be the star of Netflix's new movie The King — and he's great and all — but Robert Pattinson absolutely steals the show.


    More specifically, his French accent steals the show. He's playing the Dauphin of France and his performance is delightfully BONKERS.

    Robert Pattinson telling Timothée Chalamet he has “giant balls with a tiny cock” is one of the best cinematic moments of 2019.

    1. A lot of people are now obsessed with it (same).

    So I’m watching The King and thinking “hey this is a slightly above average Shakespearean drama thing” but then Robert Pattinson struts in with his comical French accent and suddenly this movie is a lot more fun.
