Ben Barnes Was Relieved That He Didn't End Up as Edward Cullen

‘I would loathe to be Robert Pattinson, and I know he struggles with the attention,’ he says, revealing that he was once in the running for Pattinson’s role as Edward Cullen in Twilight. ‘The director announced that it was Robert or me… I’m slightly relieved it was him.’
