Why Robert Pattinson Was ‘Almost Fired’ From Twilight
Twilight fans, can you imagine if Edward Cullen wasn't played by Robert Pattinson?
It was almost a reality.
According to the star, his rebellious behaviour almost got him the boot from the flicks, according to his interview with New York Times.
Things apparently got SO bad, that his agent actually had to fly out to straighten him out.
Pattinson said his time in the Twilight saga was “an amazing luxury.”
He was only 22-years-old at the time the first movie was filmed.
It was “amazing luck, as well, to just have fallen into it with the group of people I worked with on it,” he said, adding, “I didn’t have to kiss anybody’s [rear end] the entire time.”
“I think one of the best things, basically, about being a bit of a sellout,” Pattinson said, is “if you’ve done five movies in a series, you’ve had to accept some responsibility for playing the same character.”
