Twilight rocketed the virtually unknown actor Rob Pattinson into the limelight when he was cast as brooding vampire Edward Cullen. However Rob recently admitted he wouldn’t have minded being cast as Edward’s rival, the sexy and typically shirtless werewolf Jacob, played by Taylor Lautner, instead.
Rob thinks both roles are great, and get him close to Bella, played by his real life girlfriend Kristen Stewart, but in the end Rob does favor the Edward role. Why? There’s way too many scenes where Jacob is shirtless, and Rob would never wanna work out enough to get abs like T-Lauts.
