20Robert Pattinson Almost Got Fired

Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in Twilight

He played the part with a dark and gloomy approach, but this didn't go down well with the filmmakers.

Robert Pattinson decided to take some artistic liberties while discovering Edward's personality and traits.

He revealed to The Howard Stern Show: "Everyone was like, 'No, [the character] should be happy and having fun!' That's what people want." He did find the funny side of it, though, especially

since "the whole series is known as a brooding thing."

Pattinson added how the producers highlighted the parts of the script where Edward smiled for him, and his agents started to visit the set a lot more.

He genuinely feared he was going to get the boot because he wasn't smiling enough.
