Ashley Originally Auditioned For Bella

From The Deadbolt News:

Although today's Twilight Saga report could have easily read, "Robert Pattinson and Ashley Greene deny romance outside of the Twilight Saga," the Twilight truth is that Ashley Greene who plays Alice Cullen in the Twilight Saga almost beat out Kristen Stewart for the Twilight role of Bella Swan.

In a recent Twilight interview with Saturday Night Magazine, Twilight and New Moon actress Ashley Greene reveals how all things in her Twilight Saga life would be different if she landed the Twilight and New Moon role of Bella Swan instead of Kristen Stewart.

In the Twilight interview for the October issue of Saturday Night, Ashley Greene reveals that after getting Twilight denied for Bella Swan, Greene landed Alice Cullen instead and has since become close to her Twilight co-stars, especially on New Moon. "With the second one, it was more intimate as far as the amount of people involved," Greene revealed to Saturday Night. "After the first week or two of production, it was just me, Kristen [Stewart], Rob [Pattinson] and Taylor [Lautner] and then Rachelle [Lefevre] was there for a little bit. Taylor's super, super sweet, and Jackson [Rathbone], I adore. I love them all."

In terms of Twilight Saga fame as Alice Cullen, Ashley Greene admits that had she landed Bella Swan her Twilight life would've changed dramatically and that Greene would be under the intense new moon of the Twilight spotlight like Twilight star Robert Pattinson. "I applaud him. [The fans] love him so much and I know they don’t want to hurt him, but people just don’t realize that when they’re that many people coming with a force, it can be very dangerous sometimes."

We're dying to know your Twilight opinion? Would Ashley Greene have made a better Bella Swan?


We love Ashley as Alice, but we want to know, too ~ Would Ashley have made a better Bella than Kristen?

Yes, she probably would have been a better Bella since, you know, she can act :P
But she's amazing as Alice. So it's all good.

I think that Natalie Portman would have made a much better Bella. But as for Ashley Greene - I think she is perfect for Alice.

She is the perfect Alice! But... I think she would have made an excellent Bella as well.

Yes...Ashley would have made a better Bella. And she is a good Alice because she can act in any role needed. Can I also add that Robert does not live up to my visual expectations of Edward from the books...he too could have been better cast. And Taylor is not nearly as big as Jacob should be in book two. But I like Taylor. I'm team Taylor in the movies and team Edward in the books. (Just wish they would have gotten a better Edward.)

I think Ashley makes a wonderful Alice and as for Bella, Kristin fits the description of Bella very well but as for the acting, Ashley would probably have been a better Bella but she fits Alice description and persona very well.

I think Kristen is perfect as Bella...she's just so...normal. And with how unusual everything in her world is, that's just how she should be. I really can't even imagine Ashley as Kristen, but I think she makes the perfect Alice. They are both wonderful actresses.

i just cannot see anyone else playing anybody. Ashley is perfect, kristen is perfect, rob is beyond perfect, jackson, kellen, peter, et cetera et cetera. there is no better cast in the world.

She is a great Alice and Kristen is a great Bella. They fit their characters well.

I think that Ashley Shoould Be Alice but there is only one bella and that role should have been given to me ( Even though I didn't audition:-) )

I Love Taylor Lautner said...

LOL To the person above me that's just what I would have said

Definately would have made a better bella. Kristen has too much attitude

Although i think that Ashley is a better actor in my opinion and is too pretty for bella. In the books bella is described as ordinary and kristen is more ordinary looking than ashley. Ashley is much prettier with sharper features and fits well with the description of alice

emma cullen said...

ashley is perfect as alice (although i miss the way her hair was in the first movie, they totally changed it in new moon), i guess she could have been bella, but now most people would say that she's wrong for the role, because they perceive kristen as bella...
(did any of that make sense to you?? :)

Alex said...

I think Ashley is perfect as alice she is exactly how i imagined her!
but kristen looks like bella... and isn't a good actress. at all. she's got so much more attitude then real bella she just lacks emotion. sshe seems far to tense. she needs to relax!

Tara D said...

I can't imagine the characters being played by any other actresses. I think they're perfect for the roles they were cast for. :)

I don't like Kristen or Rob as actors, so I guess that Ashley would be a better Bella, however, she plays a wonderful Alice and I love her.

Ashley is an AMAZING Alice she is exactly how I pictured her. Though I think Anna Kendrick could have better Bella but I think Anna makes a good Jessica to.
