Emily Browning Never Auditioned for 'Twilight'

Emily Browning Never Auditioned for 'Twilight'

Emily Browning carries a glass bottle of soda with her as she leaves to tape her segment on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon in New York on Monday afternoon (March 21).

The 22-year-old actress, toting a Prada corda+cuoio two-tone cinghiale tote bag, recently sat down to chat with The Playlist about never auditioning for Twilight and how she almost considered quitting acting altogether.

“At one point I was very hesitant about acting. But actually [Sucker Punch], to be honest with you, is the one that’s brought me back and made me realize, ‘this is absolutely what I want to do!’ I have faith in this industry, if a movie making experience can be this positive and this much fun, then I can’t imagine ever doing anything else.”

Emily continued about her opportunity to take the role of Bella Swan, “I chose not to audition. I was at a point in my career where I wasn’t sure I wanted to work, I definitely didn’t want to sign onto a trilogy so I didn’t audition, but there were a lot of things people said: ‘you turned it down’ no that’s not the case, ‘you were offered it and you turned it down,’ no, no, no, that’s not what happened at all.”

Sucker Punch hits theaters on Friday, March 25th.

    Wish she had been Bella instead of Kristen. She would have been perfect!

    Emily is a good actress and she has the looks. I am glad she didn’t quit acting. Then she wouldn’t of met vanessa and then they wouldn’t of been friends.

    That’s too bad. She would’ve made a much better Bella than Kristen Stewart.
