Lily Collins: I Auditioned for Kristen Stewart's Role in 'Twilight'!

Lily Collins: I Auditioned for Kristen Stewart's Role in 'Twilight'!

Lily Collins grabs her dry-cleaning and a cup of coffee to go while out and about on Thursday (April 18) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 24-year-old actress recently spoke about auditioning for Kristen Stewart‘s role in Twilight.

“Yeah, one of my first auditions actually was for Twilight which is really funny now thinking about it.” Lily told Crave. “This was many years ago. I was new on the scene, new at auditioning and it was always kind of this, ‘What’s going to happen?’I think every young actor or actress in Hollywood starts to read some of the same material but I think everything happens for a reason and everyone who gets the roles they get were meant to. I’m a firm believer in that.”

    And? why do actors do that, reveal that they turned down a movie or offered the role first….wut do they want from telling us that…to picture the whole movie with her playing K. Stew role? No thanx

    She didn’t say she was offered the role or that she turned down the role. She said she auditioned for the role. The reason it is “funny” is that she and Kristen Stewart both went on to star in versions of Snow White. Apart from this, I actually love it when I hear about actors who auditioned for or turned down certain roles because I do think it is interesting to imagine how the film would have turned out had they been cast. :)

    Well, Kristen Stewart was handed the part by a family friend. She didn’t really win the role.

    @snap crackle pop: well, to be honest that whole cast seems like somebody gave them the role to make things short.
    They are like the worst actors… felt kinda sorry for Dakota Fanning and Michael Sheen…

    @lol: Dakota Fanning is nothing special. Her sister is better.

    @vroomvroom: Actually the interviewer directly asked her if she had ever auditioned for another teen property before ‘The Mortal Instruments’ so she is just responding honestly to his question.

    She looks really pretty. The light brown hair suits so much better on her than the red hair. She looks even better with the very dark brown she was rocking previously but I guess the light brown is easier to maintain.

    Kristen and Robert will always be known as Bella and Edward. Twilight would not have been a success without their chemistry and it would just be another indie movie. All the actors in Twilight were perfect in their roles and made this such a great Saga. This movie proves the power of love…and brings out the hate in the worst of people . I’m sad Stephanie Meyers is now saying she is tired of Vampires and loves Syfy,just to get fans to embrace her film “The Host”. It bombed compared to Twilight because they had all the wrong actors with no chemistry.

    @snap crackle pop:

    what family friend? You are a liar. Kristen auditioned for 4 hours for Catherine H, so take your little agenda back to your hate sites you jealous cvnt!

    Lena Says:

    Lily sucks. Mortal Instruments is gonna bomb just like The Host. lol

    peach Says:

    @Steph: but Rob only auditioned for twilight cos he wanted to work with Kristen so if Lily was given the role Rob wouldn’t be in it. Lily’s chemistry with taylor lautner would have been non existent just like it was in abduction

    pdw Says:

    dear Snap Crackle Pop; OMG; LOL; and Alaia: the only cast member given a role was Nikki Reed…her dad was dating Catherine Hardwicke at the time so NR was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. Kristen and the rest of the cast auditioned for their roles in Twilight.

    You haters are always so eager to harass and bully Kristen but the great thing is no matter how many times you post hate filled comments it doesn’t change the FACT that Rob and Kristen are living their lives together, in love, rich and successful. You on the other hand waste your life drowning in hate on blogs…how’s that working out for you?!

    @lol: I agree 100%. I only saw the first two, but I had countless moments of cringing from the bad acting. Kristen is by far the worst. I don’t understand why someone so physically awkward would decide to become an actress. I think there is only one type of character she can play well: an awkward tomboy. But for her, that doesn’t require any acting so… that speaks to her level of talent.

    It was Emile Hirsh who offered Kristen Stewart for the part of Bella to Catherine Hardwick. KS should pray for him for the rest of her life since it was her only succes and it will never hapen again. It is always a torture to watch her so called “acting”. It’s like she thinks that she’s playing the same part in every her movie. She can show only one expression poor frightened suffering (at the same time sneering faced) girl. That’s all! Her face just cannot show any other expression. A good actor should be good in any genre whether it comedy or drama. Can you people imagine her in comedy? Let me guess. No way! All that she can do is “to act” agony or drama. The thing is she is not actress. And I’m not hater. It’s just there are so many other and talented young actresses in Hollywood but somehow she gets a really good parts.

    @C@$HVILLE: oh my god I just left the comment. And was thinking the same.

    Daisy Kenyon Says:

    @pdw: U Catherine Hardwick had previously worked on a movie with Nikki Reed caledl 13. With Evan Rachel Wood

    Daisy Kenyon Says:

    @Aizhan: Emile Hirsch did not offer the role but he suggested her–big difference..

    KissThis Says:

    @Mel: Actually Catherine Hardwicke IS a friend of Kristen’s parents. I think the whole audition story was kind of BS. Kristen had that role without auditioning and she sucked.

    Julie Says:

    I love Twilight, but never loved KS. I would like more if Lily had played Bella.

    well shame on the casting director!!

    :) Says:

    Is that why her and Lautner broke up? Too much awkward tension between her and his friends?
