Is Henry Cavill jealous of Robert Pattinson for playing the lead in Twilight?
Henry Cavill appeared in the Happy Sad Confused podcast a few days back, where he was told an interesting fact about Twilight. The actor was completely taken aback when he realized that the Twilight series author originally wanted him to play the lead role of Edward Cullen in the vampire movie. However, as we all know, the role was given to Robert Pattinson, who ultimately soared to the heights of success with his role in the movie franchise.
On being asked if the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star was jealous of Pattinson for bagging the part, he said,
“No, not at all, because I didn’t know about the movie. I didn’t know about them wanting to cast me.”
He revealed that he was completely unaware of the fact that he was even considered for the role. He shared in the podcast,
“The internet wasn’t quite as wasn’t quite the tool that it is now,” the actor added. “So, yeah, I only found out afterward and I was like, ‘Oh, okay, that would have been cool.’ “
In July 2007, Twilight author Meyer had written in her blog that she had lost her perfect Edward as she wished Henry Cavill for the role. For the uninitiated, Meyers had no say over the film’s casting decisions.
