Robert Pattinson Almost Got Fired From 'Twilight' For Making Edward Too Serious!

Robert Pattinson‘s beloved brooding Twilight character almost had a completely different personality!

The 31-year-old actor recently opened up about how Edward was supposed to be “happy and fun” and he almost got fired for changing the script!

“I was very serious. I thought at the time – I was 21 – if you were going into a relationship with someone, the way you could make it really intense was if you could barely talk to each other, you could barely touch each other, incredibly serious all the time,” Robert explained.

He continued, “Everyone was like it ‘No, it should be happy and having fun! That’s what people want!’…Now the whole series is known as a brooding thing, but I remember the producers giving me the book and every singe instance where my character smiled, they’d highlight.”

Eventually his agents had to come to set and set him straight!

“I came back after…with a big smile. I was probably going a little bit too miserable, so some kind of compromise was made,” Robert explained.

But that wasn’t the only time Robert got in trouble on set! Find out why else here!
