Vanessa Hudgens and Brenda Song have reportedly landed big roles in the third Twilight movie, Eclipse which will start shooting next year in March.
Vanessa has been cast as Lauren Mallory, the typical blonde ''mean girl'' at Forks who becomes jealous of Bella Swans's popularity. The casting directors will make Lauren a major big character in the film series. Brenda is set to play Leah Clearwater, who is a Native American female werewolf in the Quileute tribe.
Vanessa told me last week: "I don't want to be a tweenybopper star anymore, Twilight was something everyone was bugging me to do. I got offered the role last year and Stephenie Meyer originally wanted me to play Bella Swan but I rejected the role because I didn't want to be a tweenybopper forever.
"I personally think that Twilight is lame and overrated, it is a franchise built on hype. I hate Twilight and I hated the first film, but the producers and casting directors of the series would not stop begging me to play Leah Clearwater. I didn't want to be Leah because I hate the character, so then the producers had an idea of adding Laren Mallory, the mean girl, to the film series. And I said yes because I was annoyed and tired of all the requests. Lauren is really mean and a really complex and developed characters. Those tweenybopper will no longer worship me, they'll probably be scared from me after seeing me in Eclipse. I don't get what all of the buzz and hype is for.. Twilight is beyond lame. It's built on hype, I might reject this role too. Why can't people realize I am a big star now, I deserve better than this. I deserve a multi billion dollar movie budget, I'm Vanessa Hudgens for God's sake. A lot of people on the net are like saying that my star is fading and that no one cares about me anymore. Well wake up haters, you guys are in denial. I'm bigger than Miley Cyrus and Twilight combined, the Twilight cast will definitely be star struck when they see me. I created teen pop, I don't get enough credit for what I do. I am the queen, I don't understand why people are in denial."
Brenda also dissed Twilight and the series author, Stephanie Meyer. Brenda told me: "Twilight is more than just stupid. I hate the movies and the books, but the movies deserve a million Razzie awards for the worst acting in cinematic history. Rob Pattinson and his girl need to get acting lessons and perhaps mental help. I saw his girl Kristy on Regis and Kelly. That girl needs to relax and chill, those Twilight people are seriously mentally retarded. The film sucks, that's a fact and the books suck ever more. I am just expressing my opinion, what's so wrong with that. I want to play Leah because I want to improve that film series. Vanessa and I will probably win Oscars for our performances hopefully. Screw Twilight, the hype is getting on my nerves."
Brenda and Vanessa were earlier seen partying at H.Wood with Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay and Brenda allegedly flirted with many bartenders at the club. Later on Brenda and Vanessa danced on top of many tables at the club and were spotted leaving with unknown five men.
