Many fans are not aware, but a prank involving star Robert Pattinson posed a major problem for the franchise in general.
The cheatsheet website spoke all about this story; Check it out below!
At the time of the release of the first Twilight film, most fans were satisfied with the casting of Kristen Stewart as Bella. On the other hand, Robert Pattinson’s choice as Edward was widely criticized by fans.
Since Edward is described as “perfect” in Stephen Meyer’s books, it would be difficult for any actor to live up to the insane expectations of fans. Pattinson himself admitted that he did not believe he had a chance to be selected for the role of a hero.
In fact, the Twilight star felt ashamed of her audition, believing that the role would eventually be offered to a model.
“I think the initial reaction was very real. He felt that I was not fit for the role. I did not interpret Edward as someone who knew he was beautiful, because I don’t feel that way myself ”, commented Starr.
In fact, some fans were so disgusted with Pattinson’s lineup, that he made a plea to replace Edward’s interpreter.
Noting that Robert Pattinson was not enough to play the role of Edward, a portion of fans promised to boycott the Twilight saga in theaters.
It was the actor’s mother who sent a petition to the son. Claire Pattison thought it was a lot of fun, and believed that the document was actually a joke or a joke.
“My mother sent me the petition when I was already living in the United States. The petition used a photo of me in a period film, in which I blew my face and was wearing a terrible wig, ”the star commented.
The petition had 75,000 signatures at the time. Three days after the petition was sent to Summit Studios, Pattinson was officially put into twilight.
Nowadays, it is difficult to imagine any other actor playing the role of Edward in Twilight. Robert Pattinson may have taken a long time to win over the fans of the saga, but when he won the hearts of fans, he had it for no one.
All the movies in the Twilight saga are available in the Netflix catalog.
