It’s been 14 years since the first “Twilight” film hit theaters, and director Catherine Hardwicke has a few secrets to share.

Hardwicke admitted on an episode of “The Big Hit Show” podcast that she despised the 2008 teen vampire romance’s original script.

Host Alex Pappademas read pieces of the screenplay’s first draft that had a few wild plotlines.

One scene showed star Kristen Stewart’s character Bella Swan firing a gun at a vampire. Another showed her “on Jet Skis being chased by the FBI.”

Screenwriter Mark Lord wrote the original script and told Pappademas that MTV Films, which was producing the flick at the time, said that it needed to add more action to the story.

“They wanted it to take a concept and build in a structure that was far more like a cinematic structure,” Lord said. “And they wanted to just put in some more action to advance it more and give something more for the male audience. They thought they were going to lose the male audience with too much of a romance.”

Hardwicke, however, said she didn’t feel like the script was right for the big-screen adaption of author Stephenie Meyer’s widely popular young adult novels.

“And the original script literally had Bella on Jet Skis being chased by the FBI,” she said. “She was a star athlete. Nothing to do with the book.”

Meyer also hated the first draft and the movie rights were then given to Summit Entertainment. Writer Melissa Rosenberg replaced Lord and wrote all five movies in the franchise.

Stewart starred with Robert Pattinson in the series from 2008 until 2012. Stewart dated the “Batman” star from 2009 to 2013, and she recently opened up about their relationship in an interview with the New Yorker.

“It was so clear who worked,” the “Spencer” star said of her chemistry with Pattinson — who played Edward Cullen. “I was literally just, like [swooning].”

She added: “And, whatever, we were young and stupid and, not to say that we made it so much better, but that’s what it needed, and that’s what anybody playing those parts needed to feel.”

Joey Badass and his interest in polyamorous relationships seem to be stirring the pot after a recent interview on Angela Yee’s lip service this Tuesday.

At the beginning of the month, Joey first shared his views on monogamous relationships and the right to “love freely” after it came to light again that Tristan Thompson stepped out on the mother of his child, Khloe Kardashian.

“Tristian Thompson gotta stop being a sorry ass n*gga,” the rapper began. Tell Khloe you’re a f*cking gyalist and you need more than one woman. Straight up. Whats so hard about being honest with our women fellas? F*ck this western bullsh*t. Relationships should be expansive and beneficial for all.”

A “gyalist” is a term used for someone who can’t be with just one woman, a playboy, a ladies’ man, and the like.

“Most of us have been in polyamorous relationships our whole lives. The only difference is we weren’t honest about it,” he continued.

Most of us have been in polyamorous relationships our whole lives. The only difference is we weren’t honest about it. But if you’ve ever been sexually involved with someone non-exclusively, guess what, you’re polyamorous.

— BADMON (@joeyBADASS) January 4, 2022

“But if you’ve ever been sexually involved with someone non-exclusively, guess what, you’re polyamorous. Unconditional love means you love with no CONDITIONS. Most of our minds are way too conditioned to even love freely.”

The comments stirred the pot as some saw where the “Love is Only a Feeling” rapper was coming from, and others completely disagreed.

In the interview with Angela yee and co-host, Joey was asked if he wanted a polyamorous relationship and his desire to have two wives.

 “They will have to be cool with each other, they’ll have to be able to call each other if they wanna get down like that. But it’s not a requirement,” Joey explained before stating that he currently is in his ideal situation with two women.

“Potentially, I like to be bicoastal so maybe one in New York and one in LA,” the rapper said when asked if he had an interest in living with two women in the same household.
