Believe it or not, Edward could’ve been even more brooding.
I think everyone can agree that it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Robert Pattinson playing the glittery vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight films.
Well, according to Robert, we might’ve had a totally different actor portraying Edward. He was actually almost fired from the first film for not…wait for it: SMILING ENOUGH!
In an interview with Howard Stern, Robert said he basically imagined the character as 105-year-old emo vampire who cries along to Morrissey songs all day.*
*OK, he didn't really say it like that.
If you’re going into a relationship with someone, the way to make it really intense is if you can barely talk to each other, you can barely touch each other, it’s incredibly serious all the time. That’s what teenage relationships are. But everyone kind of wanted it to be, like, “No, they should just be, like, happy and having fun. That’s what people want.”
