Emily Browning: A Better Bella Swan?

Emily Browning: A Better Bella Swan?

The Uninvited star Emily Browning is setting the story straight about her turning down the role of Bella Swan in Twilight.

The 20-year-old actress shared with MTV, “Maybe I should set it straight a little bit, because there are so many rumors flying around. People are coming up to me and saying, ‘Oh, my God. You turned [Twilight] down?’ and all this horrible stuff! What actually happened is that I was asked to audition ” not take the part, but to just audition ” shortly after The Uninvited had finished filming.”

Emily continued, “And I’m not the type of person who can just work back-to-back. So I was just exhausted, and I was like, ‘I’m sorry, but I just can’t sign on to a trilogy right now.’ I was exhausted, and I needed to come home and hang out with my family for a little bit. And I’m hoping people realize that now. I haven’t actually seen the film, but I’m sure Kristen [Stewart] did a billion times better job than I would’ve done.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK — would Emily make a better Bella than Kristen?
