Shiloh Fernandez Talks Missing Out on 'Twilight' Role

Shiloh Fernandez Talks Missing Out on 'Twilight' Role

Shiloh Fernandez shows off his toned torso in an unbuttoned shirt in this spread for Vman magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands on Thursday (February 10).

Here’s what the 25-year-old Red Riding Hood actor had to share:

On missing out on the role of Edward Cullen: “No one had any idea what Twilight would become. At the time, it was just another audition. I didn’t realize I was missing out on stardom and giant paychecks. Now, looking back on it, I certainly wouldn’t have been mentally stable enough to deal with all that. Lucky for me, not getting that part led to other work that was a much better fit for me.”

On his experience working on Red Riding Hood: “To be given this great part with this very complicated backstory is such a learning experience. And [director Catherine Hardwicke] has created this world that’s so detailed and so beautiful. I loved being a part of it.”

On his ultimate aspirations: “I want to work and I want to become the best actor that I can be. But I also want to be a happy, interesting person. It’s hard to be an interesting person if you spend all your time on a set. That isn’t the real world. You’ve got to have a good life outside of all that. You’ve got to spend time in places where there’s not always someone on standby to bring you a glass of water.”

FYI: Shiloh is wearing Diesel and Dior Homme.
