Jennifer Lawrence began by describing how she tried out for Twilight and was “immediately” rejected before landing The Hunger Games a year later.
The No Hard Feelings actress revealed that she didn’t even receive a callback for the role of Bella Swan, which finally went to Kristen Stewart, during an appearance on The Rewatchers podcast with Bill Simmons. She’s happy she chose not to.
“My life would have been completely different,” she said. “I say, the work is still the same because I felt the same way while I was working on Cravings Games.In order to be recognised for more than just one franchise, I need to do films in between. Because I was still in a franchise, I was still battling my franchise-ness.
