Kristin Stewart has revealed why she turned down an iconic cameo in Scream 4.
The role would have been similar to Drew Barrymore’s appearance in the hit franchise.
But the actress has revealed it’s not something she was keen to try.
Kristin Stewart on Scream role: “I can’t touch that”
During a recent interview when discussing her career Kirstin Stewart revealed she had been approached for the Scream sequel.
At the time Kristin was still working on the Twilight films.
She revealed that the role would have seen her play a cameo similar to that of Drew Barrymore in the first film.
Fans of the film will remember Drew Barrymore played the very first character killed in a brutal death scene in the first Scream film.
“So it’s the Drew [Barrymore] character that gets killed in the beginning,” she revealed.
“And they created a whole sequence where a lot of people got killed to emulate the Drew thing.”
However, the prospect of such an iconic role was a little more than the Twilight star was prepared to take on.
“But it was just going to be one person, and I was like, ‘I can’t do a Drew. I can’t touch that.”
“Do you know what I mean? But, yeah, so then they ended up doing if I’m remembering correctly, a larger sequence and not just one victim.”
The end result did end up being a much larger and certainly star-studded cameo lineup.
Opting for a “film within a film” style opening viewers were treated to some familiar faces meeting their doom.
Lucy Hale, Shenae Grimes-Beech, Kristen Bell, and Anna Paquin all appeared in the now iconic opening to the fourth film.
