The website The Examiner talked to Bryce Dallas Howard this weekend, who replaced Rachelle Lefevre in the Twilight Saga: Eclipse in a way that seemed a little fishy (on the part of Summit Entertainment, not Howard) to a lot of Twilight fans. When asked about what it was like to replace another actress, Howard answered in pretty much the most classy manner imaginable:

"The jury is still out, because Rachelle [Lefevre] really created an incredible character and is exquisite. I fell like the uproar that occurred was really appropriate, because part of the joy of seeing a franchise, it’s almost like a television series. You’ve seen the actors grow with the franchise. And [Lefevre’s] unavailability [to do "Eclipse"] was really, really, really unfortunate. Advice? Gosh. Just to do your best and be über-respectful. She won that role for a reason. I hope to honor everything that she created."

It's so unusual to hear one actor sound so graceful and generous toward another. Opie must have raised her right.
