Did ‘Twilight’ Star Robert Pattinson Lose A Movie Role to ‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington Due To His Engagement To FKA Twigs?

Robert Pattinson has received his fair share of criticism for his relationship with FKA Twigs. Now, it appears as though the Twilight alum is having more difficulty due to his fiancée. According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, the actor was recently denied a role because his relationship with Twigs got in the way of his work.

Pattinson’s career as of late has been sputtering, but when it was announced back in February that he was set to appear in a movie with Brimstone, many thought he his career was back on track. However, it was recently announced that Pattinson had been dropped from the role, and the part would now be played by Kit Harington, who is known for his role on the hit television show Game of Thrones.

Although the reason why R. Patz was replaced by Harington has not been revealed, many are speculating that Twigs may have had something to do with it. Additionally, there is also the possibility that the film proved to be too much of a commitment for Pattinson, who is getting ready to marry Twigs.

While Robert Pattinson‘s career seems to be spiraling downhill, Twigs’ music career is taking off. Twigs just signed a deal to replace Rita Ora on The Voice U.K. The singer is also set to perform this summer at the Way Out West music festival in Sweden.

In regards to her recent spike in popularity, Twigs was a relatively low profile singer before dating Pattinson. However, Twigs isn’t sold on being the center of attention just yet. The musician recently told Complex magazine that she doesn’t appreciate all the attention she has received from Pattison’s loyal fanbase.

“It is pretty horrible… But ultimately, I’m in an amazing relationship. So it doesn’t matter.”

Meanwhile, Pattinson’s ex-girlfriend’s mother, Jules Stewart, recently opened up about her daughter’s relationship with Pattinson. Although she is happy with how her daughter’s life is now, she admitted that constantly being in the public’s eye played a part in their breakup.

“They were a great couple, but she’s 25 years old and I’d like to see her have a lot more life experience before she chooses someone to settle down with,” Jules explained to the Sunday Mirror. “I’m very sad that Kristen and Robert didn’t have a chance to be alone together, they had to have the whole world with them and all the public stuff ruined everything, life became overwhelming.”

Robert Pattinson is currently in pre-production on The Lost City of Z costarring Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam.
