AnnaLynne McCord Almost Played Rosalie

Feb 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

MTV talked to AnnaLynne about her love of vampires and Twilight!

“Something that few Twilighters realize, however, is that the vampire-loving actress nearly played Nikki Reed’s part in the original film. “They wanted me to play Rosalie,” she recalled. “I met with the producers when ‘Twilight’ was casting, the original. I was on ‘Nip/Tuck’ at the time. And they were like, ‘We’d love to have you in this little film we’re doing called ‘Twilight,’ but the family only has small roles.’ They were like, ‘It shoots in Oregon, so you probably couldn’t do it anyway.’ And I was like, ‘If it shot [in L.A.] that would be cool.”

“Then this little film ‘Twilight’ blows up, crazy,” she laughed, enjoying her seemingly predestined participation in the franchise. “So, I came back in for a [recent ‘New Moon’] meeting and was like, ‘Hey, remember me? I supported you way back when!’ I’m like, ‘Let’s do this!'”

  1. Carly (Lautner) says:

    is it weird that i almost like AnnaLynne McCord better than Nikki Reed as Rosalie? i think that AnnaLynne has the coloring that Nikki does not: the blonde hair, and lighter skin. i was doubtful of Catherine’s choice of Nikki because of her dark complexion.


  2. Nellie says:

    I agree that she has the coloring (though blonde actresses are always suspect) but I just don’t see her as being likable. I know Rosalie is kind of a pain in the butt, but I still like the character. AnnyaLynne always plays the bad girl and I think that it would be better for her to be Heidi. She would be a good “fisher”.

  3. Lindsay says:

    i agree she would play a better Heidi then Rosalie. I dont know.. something about her face/attitude just doesnt fit for playing Rosalie, but yeah she would definitly be a good fit for playing Heidi.

  4. Elizabeth says:

    I love her. She would have made such a good Rose. I hope shes in New Moon.

  5. Cherry Garcia says:

    I’m glad she is not Rose. I like Nikki Reed way better. I just can’t see her as Rosalie, but she might work for the part of Heidi.

  6. teen14 says:

    I agree with 1 2 and 3 she would have been a great Rosalie, I thought of her before I knew this but Nikki’s grown on me, she might not have Rosalie exactly in the physical sense but she so had Rosalie’s complex attitude down! I think Anna would be a great Heidi

  7. emmettsgal says:

    I dont like either of them…. I actually wanted Alyson Michalka to play Rosalie and im not a bug Aly and AJ fan…

    lol well i Just dont like her….

  8. Jordan says:

    Even though she looks like rose …she missed her chance ..TO BAD SO SAD …go nikki

  9. Shteff says:

    I’m prefering her to play Heidi…
    plus, I don’ think she’d be into the vampire catagory in twilight =3
    but thats my personal choice

  10. Samantha says:

    Personally, I don’t like her. There is just something about her acting that irks me the wrong way. She would not have made a good Rosalie. Rosalie is supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the world, and I don’t find AnnaLynne very pretty at all. I think Nikki is great and she is gorgeous! AnnaLynne kind of has this mouse-like look to her and I just don’t like her at all.

  11. Shannah says:

    I wish she would’ve been Rosalie! I don’t really like Nikki that much. Sorry.
