The 23-year-old has won a legion of fans for his portrayal of Edward Cullen as a vampire in the franchise but Coulter says he probably wouldn't have given him the role alongside Pierce Brosnan because the blockbusters don't stretch him as an actor, reports Contactmusic.com.
"If I had seen Twilight, I might not have hired him. He is so limited by the kinds of traits he has to express. It's not that psychologically complex," said Coulter.
Coulter thinks the Twilight movies will not help Pattinson develop his screen skills. However, Coulter is pleased he took a chance on Pattinson in the New York-based drama which focuses on a touching love story between Pattinson's emotionally adrift character and a fellow college student because it gives the young actor the chance to showcase his acting skills.
He is hopeful Pattinson's popularity will make the film a success.
