Bryce Dallas Howard Was First Choice!

Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke spilled the vampire dish while attending the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night!

The filmmaker revealed that actress Bryce Dallas Howard was the studio's first pick for the role of Victoria in the first Twilight film, but the role was "too small" for Bryce at the time!

Rachelle Lefevre ended up landing the role in Twilight, but execs ditched Lefevre for Howard in the upcoming Eclipse!

Do U agree with the swap???

Hardwicke also shared her sympathy for the media blitz R-Patz and K-Stew have found themselves caught up in since the release of Twilight!

Says Catherine: "I mean, part of me feels kind of guilty because they are both such indie spirits… They are really artists, they like making meaningful art, interesting art."

There's still time for those two to make their art house flicks!

And still pay the bills, to boot!

    no !!! lefevre is soooo victoria… bad move.



  2. 2

    Ugh, she is the ugliest bitch I eve seen and she fucked up Twilight. What was she thinking when she picked Kristen Stewart???



  3. 3

    First….wow. I'm proud of myself.



  4. 4

    is that a man or a woman?



  5. 5

    twilight is overrated. did u see brooke hogan's upskirt. it will shock you. its on realcelebritease.com



  6. 6

    First!! I'm proud of myself.



  7. 7

    I'm sorry, but I don't care if she was the first choice. Once Rachelle Lefevre was cast, she should remain Victoria, since continuity is important. Besides, if the vampires are never supposed to age/change, it's pretty messed up to put in a whole new person. At least try to keep it a little realistic!



  8. 8

    I loved Rachelle as Victoria. Im not happy about the change..but theres nothing I can do about so Im just gonna have to let it go



  9. 9

    im soo pissed about that…its like when she found out what she missed out on she decided that she wants in on the 3rd
    kick out our rachelle



  10. 10

    ALL OF THIS IS BS!!!!!! NEW MOON IS GONNA BE A DISASTER THANKS TO THE SWAP!!!
    SAY NO TO BDH!!!!!!!!!!!



  11. 11

    wow that was all just P.R. bullshiit. Can't believe a word of what that woman said.



  12. 12

    they need to be consistent. if they chose rachelle to begin with, then they need to stick with her. she's been great. and had no comlaints so far. they can't just have a new victoria half-way through the franchise. very sloppy, summit. that's all i have to say!



  13. 13

    I WANT RACHELLE :(
    …FUCKING LOSERS -.-



  14. 14

    ewww is she missing her teeth?



  15. 15

    she looks like an old lady that forgot to put in her teeth.



  16. 16

    I won't be watching Eclipse. Rachelle IS Victoria.



  17. 17

    p.s. catherine hardwicke is insane in the membrane



  18. 18

    That's majorly suspect. So now Bryce thinks it's a big enough role they ditch Rachelle. That blows. What a silly move. Sigh.



  19. 19

    ****************************************************************

    EXACTLY why Bryce shouldn't be in this series now! It wasn't good enough for her then and it's too good for her now. She SUCKS



  20. 20

    lefevre is victoria for life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and did u mean the upcoming New Moon!?



  21. 21

    "Too small"?

    Clearly, this woman is insane! Does she not realize how BIG Twilight is? I personally am not a fan of it, but I realize that the thing is a HUGE sensation.



  22. 22

    TOO SMALL?!?!? FOR BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD?!?!?
    .
    THIS CHICK IS A NOBODY… OH WAIT… SHE IS SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER!!
    .
    WHICH IS THE **ONLY** REASON SHE HAS HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO **RUIN** EVERY OTHER MOVIE SHE HAS BEEN IN!!
    .
    SHE IS BORING BORING BORING! PLAIN OATMEAL BORING!!



  23. 23

    That is such a load of BULLSHIT! I am enraged. You don't turn down a roll because its not good enough for you then push out your replacement once you realize people are actually into it. NO INTEGRITY!



  24. 24

    NOOO!!! RACHELLE DESERVES THIS PART! SHE IS AMAZING! THEY PICKED HER, THEY NEED TO KEEP HER. IF BRYCE DALLAS HOWARD WAS IN IT IN THE BEGINNING, I WOULD BE FINE, BUT YOU CANT REPLACE HER IN THE 3RD MOVIE! HOES! HELL TO PAY!



  25. 25

    Oh, Dear, were shall we start this project…………..J



  26. 26

    nobody cares what she has to say anymore lol



  27. 27

    shes isnt that big if she would of took it from the start there wouldnt be this problem poor richelle they just threw her out when they were done with her



  28. 28

    i don't care who was first choice or who was 99th choice, rachelle should be able to reprise the role. enough about rpatz and kstew being indie. i get it they're not into the typical shallow scene that is hollywood, and nothing against them but STOP the whining already!! to whom much is given, much is required! deal with it or get out of the biz.



  29. 29

    and fuck this lady anyway, she ruined the first movie, and she's not directing the second one so who cares what she has to say??!!



  30. 30

    i wish i was taylor laughtner



  31. 31

    Re: berrybaby – oh my god how will you bear it..



  32. 32

    Man, poor Rachelle Lefevre. Hollywood really is cruel.



  33. 33

    I hate it when they exchange actors in movie sequels. It always messes the feel of the show up.



  34. 34

    She needs to shut her trap. She's annoys the hell out of me. She has no business in directing, at all….and she's a bit of an air head.
    Rachelle was good, they should've kept her. End of.



  35. 35

    hah omg. are you serious? bryce turned down the role cause it was too little?
    what a bitch. prooves why rachelle fucking lefevre should be victoria.
    and i swear rachelle is perfect for victoria, bryce will always be known as the lady in the water… fun…
    that movie was dumb



  36. 36

    I don't think it's fair that at first the role was too small. Now that Howard sees how huge it is she's willing to participate?! She's such a hypocrite!

  37. vikit says – reply to this

    god catherine reminds me of a hippie on a serious acid trip every time she speaks

  38. @v@ says – reply to this

    Re: puppydog66 – @35 - I totally agree. More spin designed to mitigate but instead just makes this swap sound even sh*ttier. She wanted this movie to succeed, and now that it did, as is, and ain't broke, they're trying to 'fix' it. Who messes with a winning formula? Who? People liked it, art schmart or not,
    just the way it was.



  39. 39

    total bs. guess it pays to be ron howards daughter. lame. I read the books, I'm good on the movies. Summit SUX. PEACE!



  40. 40

    wtf the role was 'too small' for Bryce but now its making big money she wants in? thats what it basically translates to! stupid hoe



  41. 41

    Rachelle is the real Victoria.
    And Bryce, its nice to see your daddy is covering your butt, I hope you realize most of the young audience has no respect for you now, I dont think you will ever win anyones hear this way.Oh yeah, I forgot, you dont care.
    Oh well, Ive got best wishes for Rachelle, pretty babe, twilight sux ass, be happy youre out, there is better stuff for you now, people will follow you now.



  42. 42

    I literally leaned back in my chair when I saw the picture of this woman. OMG she's wickedly ugly isn't she?!!



  43. 43

    That's a bunch of crap, bring Rachelle back!



  44. 44

    Boy oh Boy! What are the odds? Haha,looks like Twilight is loosing sparks.



  45. 45

    Rachelle Lefevre should have remaind as victoria. Know that twiligiht if big n still growing know it's a big roel 4 Bryce Dallas Howard. She just want's to get fame through this movie.



  46. 46

    i dislike CH ever since she casted nikki reed becuz she was dating her father! i mean seriously WTF you shouldn't be allowed to direct anymore bitch



  47. 47

    f*ck Bryce we love Rachelle



  48. 48

    half the pplz aren't gonna watch that now, I will though



  49. 49

    bryce dallas howard is ugly. and she shouldnt get the chance to be in eclipse since she ditched the first two films, a little diva-esque dont you think??



  50. 50

    they shouldn't have switch like that one person should have done all four. and boo hoo on all the money and fame. poor babies. they need to enjoy it while they can cause neither are great actors.



  51. 51

    Is the part was soo small for her she shouldnt even be allowed to be in the 3rd movie of twilight, thats dumb as ever. Hire someone who didnt even want the part in the first place!!



  52. 52

    WE WANT RACHELLE BACK, DAMMIT!!!!
