Rachelle Lefevre opted not to stop by the “New Moon” premiere Monday night to bid farewell the “Twilight” franchise before Bryce Dallas Howard replaces her in “Eclipse.”

The actress, who plays the evil vampire Victoria in the first two movies, gave two reasons for not attending the premiere on herTwitter. “2 fans at the premiere: w/ Honey in hospital,” she wrote. “& being fired from Eclipse tonight was just 2 emotional 4 me & I couldn’t manage it. So sorry.”

Earlier in the day, Lefevre had tweeted that her dog, Honey, hadn’t been feeling well and that she was at the hospital with her pet. “Honey is in the hospital and I don’t know what’s going to happen. I wonder if you can die from a broken heart,” she wrote. “2 all of u who shared ur pet stories & losses I thank you. I feel less alone with this pain & wish u all the best outcomes & healed hearts.”

In July, Summit Entertainment announced it was recasting Lefevre with Howard due to “scheduling conflicts with another commitment the actor has made.” Lefevre responded with her own statement about the situation.

“I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight’ saga and to the portrayal of Victoria,” the 30-year-old actress insisted. “I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. … I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.”
