It isn’t just Facebook fans demanding a fix of Betty White. “Twilight” hunks Robert Pattinson and Kellan Lutz both want to see the 88-year-old living legend in their next movie - and they have the perfect role for her to sink her teeth into!
“She can be the baby,” Pattinson, 24, told E! news, referring to Renesmee Cullen, the daughter who will be born to Edward and Bella in “Breaking Dawn.”
Fellow bloodsucker Lutz, 25, completely agrees with his “Eclipse” co-star’s casting choice, adding, "I love Betty. I would love for them to do what they did in ‘Benjamin Button’ with her and she can be Renesmee. I would change some scenes up so we could have Jacob and Emmet going for her. I want to work with her. That would be so much fun."
For her part, the author of the book series, Stephenie Meyer, says that even if the Golden Girl doesn’t play Renesmee, she deserves to spend her twilight years in “Breaking Dawn.”
“Wouldn't it be amazing if she was like just sitting there with a big group of the Volturi?” Meyer, 36, told E!. “That would be amazing."
