So we are about as tired as all of you are on the Vanessa Hudgens did she or didn’t she audition.
Yesterday her management ,when asked by Just Jared, said no. They also linked to a casting call showing the part is not currently being sought. We figured Just Jared had it right because our gut instinct, based on a number of factors, said not possible.
Today Access Hollywood said yes and stood by their source 100% when questioned.
So we thought, OK who would know the answer, and might be willing to give us a quote on the record?"
*Lightbulb…screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg*
So we asked Melissa if Leah Clearwater appeared in her script, because in the novel Leah is barely a blip on the radar. She’s in the spaghetti dinner scene talking on the phone. It seemed to us that they probably wouldn’t be introducing Leah this movie given that fact.
So…drumroll please…according to Melissa Rosenberg, "if Vanessa is auditioning for the role of Leah, she’s written her own pages to read, ’cause I didn’t write ‘em. "
Furthermore, EW, is now backing our what we have been saying.
So for the sake of our sanity, let’s save the Leah obsession for Eclipse where it actually belongs. The main female character that we all want to know about in New Moon isn’t a werewolf at all. It’s a pint-sized vampire with a hell of a wallop named JANE!
