Teens discover literal Easter egg in ‘Twilight’ movie

As if the “Twilight” franchise wasn’t cursed enough, now people on TikTok and Twitter have pointed out an absolutely bizarre detail that most people seemed to have missed in the last 12 years.

In the movie, Emmett Cullen — played by Kellan Lutz — is inexplicably seen in a bunch of shots carrying a bag of hardboiled eggs.

Emmett’s “special ability” is “super strength,” which might explain the eggs. (Eggs are a good source of protein, after all.)

However, a quick refresher via a 2008 Teen Vogue article confirmed that in this fictitious world, vampires cannot eat human food or else they throw it up. So, is this for theatrics? Who is Emmett carrying a bag of eggs around for?

Luckily, two girls on TikTok already did the dirty work of re-watching the first “Twilight” movie to confirm whether this was real — and sadly, it is.

It’s certainly a bold acting choice.

“OmG!!! I’ve watched this movie 1 million times and never saw this,” someone said in response to the TikTok.

“im the biggest twilight stan how did i never notice this,” another concerned fan replied.

“I read someone in the props department just gave it to him to see if he would actually take/carry it in the scene and he just …. did,” a user explained.

Love “Twilight”? Love to hate “Twilight”? Here’s what Anna Kendrick had to say about filming the movie (yes, she was in it).
