Jennifer Lawrence Had Auditioned For The Role Of Bella From Twilight
In an recent article, NextMovie listed out 8 stars who perhaps, you didn’t know had auditioned for ‘Twilight’. Among the 8 stars listed, Jennifer Lawrence who will be gracing the big screens on March 23, 2012, as Katniss Everdeen, was listed as she had auditioned for the role Bella Swan from Twilght before.
Auditioned for: Bella Swan
Background: Before Lawrence looked stunning in her red dress at the 2011 Academy Awards, she was an actress-with-potential knocking around Hollywood auditions. A fan of the novels, Lawrence said, “I love the ‘Twilight’ books. I’m not even ashamed to say it, they are like methamphetamine to me. So when I heard Kristen Stewart say, “I only read the first one,” I was like, “Oh man,” because she wasn’t a huge fan of the books.”
What If: Being such a Twi-hard, Lawrence may have delivered a more literal performance, for better or worse. She’s such a great actress it’s tough to say Stewart is definitely the better Bella. However, if Lawrence had gotten the role, she would not have been done “Winter’s Bone,” we wouldn’t have seen in her Oscar red dress and she wouldn’t be starring in “The Hunger Games.” All of those would have been tragedies.
I totally agree with the writer. If Jennifer Lawrence was picked to play Bella Swan, she wouldn’t have acted in “Winter’s Bone”, gained an Oscar Best Actress nomination, play Katniss Everdeen and become the well respected young actress she is in the industry.
I’m still very curious to see how she will portray Katniss Everdeen though I do have high hopes of her doing a great job at it.
