    It's just a prank, bro. According to the film's director, Roberts would show up to the set super-tired, and he thought it would be a funny, innocent way to wake her up. Her famous smile and laugh were 100% genuine.

    Cavill was 25 at the time of casting, and the studio was like, even for a vampire, that's too old. He was offered the role of Carlisle Cullen, but turned it down because he had already taken his role on The Tudors.

    After the unexpected success of Freaky Friday in 2003, her team had them switch the roles so the public would continue to root for her. Lohan was upset, but ultimately okay with it because she "got more lines."
