Please Look at the Horrifying Animatronic Doll That Was Almost Twilight’s Renesmee


The Blu-Ray “Twilight Forever” DVD collection is out this week, and on the disks are some terrifying secrets from the actors and producers. Case in point: Chuckesme.

If you recall, Edward and Bella’s miracle baby, Renesmee, was not your average kid. Since at one day-old their offspring needed to look more mature than the typical infant, directors thought that casting a…uh…human actor baby for the part would not have been “realistic” to the book. Their solution? Make a horrifying mechanical baby for the actors to treat with love and affection. It basically looks like poor Nikki Reed is holding a demon. And when it touches her face…omg. I cannot.

As one of the Twilight fimmakers says in the clip below, “Chuckesme is one of the most grotesque animatronic babies ever to not be seen on film.” Truer words have never been spoken.
