Twilight director, Catherine Hardwicke reveals that the studio didn’t think Robert Pattinson was suitable for the lead role

Recently, reports went rife that stated that Robert Pattinson was not suitable for the role of ‘Edward Cullen’ in the Twilight movie franchise. The film's director, Catherine Hardwicke, appeared on the Watchalong podcast and revealed how Robert’s appearance wasn’t up to the studio, Summit Entertainment’s standard. She disclosed:

“When he came over to my house, he had black bangs for hair and was kind of out of shape because he was hanging out at the pub all the time. I thought, ‘it works not just in person, but it works on screen.’ I had to be sure. Of course, in person, I just got carried away, but you have to be sure — does it really translate [to the screen]?”

Catherine then described how the studio responded to the possibility of Robert landing the role. She said that the studio summoned her to explain if Robert was suitable for the role or not. She then explains that she told them that they are doing Robert’s makeover to turn him into the desired character. She said:

“I sent it to Summit, and he went over to meet them. They called me back and go, ‘Do you think you can make this guy look good?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I do. Did you see his cheekbones? We’re doing a makeover on the hair and everything, and he’s going to start working out, and he’s going to be gorgeous.’ But they didn’t believe it at first. He walked over there with a stained shirt… It was Rob.”
