Robert Pattinson is reportedly dating French model Camille Rowe. The London-born star of the Twilight series of vampire-themed fantasy films will share a passionate kiss with Rowe in a new Dior Homme fragrance advertisement.

According to Heat magazine, the two have displayed the same chemistry off-camera. The 27-year-old Pattinson was recently confirmed as the new face of Dior, in a massive £8m deal. Meanwhile, Rowe has appeared in campaigns for Gap, Coach and H&M and is currently the face of Australian brand Seafolly.

"Rob let down every barrier shooting this ad. He was open to the idea of having a love interest and thoroughly enjoyed making out with the models," an insider at Dior told the Mirror, "It was definitely a hot shoot. Millions of fans all over the world are going to be gagging to see this advert the second it goes out."

Pattinson was previously in a very eagerly followed relationship with his Twilight co-star, Kristen Stewart. The couple went through a very public and messy break-up and any thought of a reunion was reportedly dashed after his intimate moments with singer Katy Perry.

Pattinson Eyeing Fifty Shades of Grey Role?

Meanwhile, the stormy debate over casting for the film version of EL James' best-selling erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, refuses to go away. The film will reportedly be released in August next year and British director Sam Taylor-Johnson will direct the venture.

The lead roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey have yet to be announced though. Ian Somerhalder is a heavy fan favourite for the latter, but the Remember Me actor recently set tongues wagging after inviting James to a party he hosted - a Great Gatsby-themed birthday party for friend and Arbitrage director Nick Jarecki.
