Back in 2006, Browning was still something of an "It" girl. In fact, she had so much heat that the writer of The Twilight Saga books, Stephanie Meyer, actually wrote on her blog that Browning was her "favorite choice" for the role of Bella. Setting aside the fact that Browning would have probably hated the huge Hollywood atmosphere of those sets, especially for four straight years, she actually admitted that she was "too lazy" to even audition for the role.
"It's not that they asked [me to take the Twilight part], but I couldn't even audition. I was too tired. So, really, it's just a matter of me being lazy." she told MTV. Browning claimed that she was "exhausted," having just wrapped shooting on the 2006 horror flick, The Uninvited, and that she's "not the type of person who can just work back-to-back," which, correct us if we're wrong here, sounds exactly like the privileged Hollywood mindset she claims to reject. And if you think that sounds harsh, go ahead and call your job on a Tuesday morning to say that you won't be in because you're just not the type of person who's into working back-to-back days. Let us know how that goes.
