Taylor Lautner Talks Abs, Fame and the Paparazzi

By Chloe Bunker on June 15, 2010

LOS ANGELES — Taylor Lautner may have spent countless hours in the gym in order to hang onto his Twilight role, but that doesn't mean he wants to flash his abs in every film.

"Originally I was supposed to take off my shirt [in Valentine's Day]," the 18-year-old actor tells GQ magazine for its July issue. "The script said we were walking into school and Willy takes off his shirt. I said, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa. Time out. He's gonna take off his shirt in the middle of school? No, no, no. The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it's written in the book that way. And there's reasons behind it."

Lautner famously beefed up after Twilight executives expressed doubt over his ability to handle the role of Jacob Black after the franchise's first film.

"I'm in the gym," Lautner recalls, "and I'm doing reps, and I'm reading the books, and I'm studying the character. I'm just saying to myself, 'I want this role. I love this role. I'm not gonna lose it. And I'm gonna know it better than anybody, and I'm gonna do that extra rep, because I'm gonna be Jacob Black.' "

All the hard work has certainly paid off as Lautner is now one of Hollywood's most sought-after young stars. One of his biggest rewards to date was his first car, a 5 Series BMW with tinted windows to shield him from the paparazzi.

"There's some things you just have to live with," he says of the media attention. "Like twelve cars camping outside your house, and when you wake up in the morning, they're going to follow you wherever you go. It helps that I live in Valencia. It eliminates some. But they're still here."

Ah yes, Lautner's California home in Valencia, where he still lives with his parents. "There's really no point. I'm so busy. I really haven't thought about it," he says when asked about the prospects of moving out and getting his own place.

"The thing I love is that my home life hasn't changed," adds Lautner. "I still help out with the garbage. I still help out with the lawn."

Report: Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner Break Up

By Alexis Sezar on December 29, 2009

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — It appears the "Taylors" have reached the end of the line.

Country star Taylor Swift and New Moon hunk Taylor Lautner have split after three months of dating, a source tells Us Weekly.

"It wasn't really developing into anything, and wasn't going to, so they decided they were better as friends," an insider close to Swift said. "There was no chemistry."

Swift, 19, and Lautner, 17, first sparked romance buzz when they attended a Los Angeles Kings hockey game together in October. They followed that with a dinner date with Swift's mom the following night. The pair first got close when they shot the upcoming romantic comedy, Valentine's Day.

A friend of Swift's told the mag that the couple's breakup came shortly after Lautner flew to Nashville for the singer's birthday party on Dec. 13.

"He liked her more than she liked him," said the source. "He went everywhere he could to see her, but she didn't travel much to see him."

Video: Taylor Lautner Karate Chops Kanye West on 'Saturday Night Live'

By Alexis Sezar on December 13, 2009

NEW YORK — Taylor Lautner certainly got his kicks in while hosting Saturday Night Live.

In his opening monologue, Lautner told the studio audience that he was still smarting from September's MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye West famously interrupted his "close" friend Taylor Swift's acceptance speech for best female video. Having been standing on stage at the time of the VMA incident, Lautner decided to reenact the scene to show everyone how he wishes that night had gone down.

Taylor Lautner Dishes on Taylor Swift, Fame

By Amber Sterling on November 24, 2009

LOS ANGELES — Taylor Lautner won't confirm if he's dating Taylor Swift, but he is willing to admit there's some magic between the two.

"We got along great," the 17-year-old actor says of his Valentine's Day co-star in the December issue of Rolling Stone. "We instantly clicked. And she's — she's an amazing girl. Aside from being beautiful, she's extremely funny, charismatic and fun to be around, so we definitely get along. We're close."

The New Moon star has evolved into one of Hollywood's biggest hunks, but he says his professional career presented some challenges early on.

"I was never extremely confident," the Michigan native tells the mag. "Because I was an actor, when I was in school there was a little bullying going on. Not physical bullying but people making fun of what I do ... I just had to tell myself I can't let this get to me. This is what love to do. And I'm going to continue to do it."

When it comes to the franchise that launched him to stardom, Lautner admits that he never could have predicted what was in store for him.

"Nobody knew what Twilight was going to be," he says. "Nobody. We thought we were making it just for passionate fans of the book. People just kept telling Us, 'Oh, yeah, the movie is going to do so good.' And we were like, 'All right, whatever. We'll see.' But when the movie came out, I was just blown away. That's when I realized, 'Boy, what am I getting myself into?'"

While thankful for what's transpired, Lautner remains modest with his success.

"This could have happened to anybody who played Jacob," he says. "I was just lucky enough to be the one that has that opportunity. I'm so grateful. It's Twilight. It's not me personally."
