Taylor Lautner (and his abs) are featured in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. Here’s a portion of the interview from the magazine!
Right. But you’re also the obstacle getting in the way of the great romance between Bella and Edward.
I can see where you’re coming from. The thing is, Jacob and Edward are two completely different guys. They are opposites. And it’s just what kind of girl you are. If you like that more mysterious, dangerous type, then that’s one guy. I personally love Jacob and Bella’s relationship, and how they began as friends. They are so much more open, and can tell each other anything. And Bella and Edward’s relationship, it’s always tense. It’s always serious. But Jacob and Bella’s friendship starts growing stronger and stronger and you just wonder if they can go past friends. It looks like that at some points.
But when your character hangs up on Edward in New Moon, it sets off the whole chain of events that almost lead to a major tragedy. That’s something a villain would do.
Yes. that is part of Jacob’s character. He can’t really control himself. When he gets mad, he gets mad. And all Jacob has on his mind is on Bella. That’s who he cares for. That’s who he loves. If somebody gets in his way, it’s not good. And he will explode. So I guess you could see that either way.
And then Bella is always lying to Edward so she can see you. This is supposed to be like true love forever, so why can’t she just be honest?
You know, she’s serious with Edward and then she meets best friend Jacob. She gets confused.
But you’re not really her friend. You have an agenda with her, and you’re always making snide comments about Edward.
If I was Jacob, and I feel like I have lived as him, it gets so annoying. Because she’s in the car with you one moment, about ready to kiss you and then she leaves and is with Edward. And then she’s back with you, you know.

After showing off his muscular body in New Moon, no one can believe that Taylor Lautner was once bullied.
The 17 year-old hottie says, “I was never extremely confident. 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.”
Meanwhile, Lautner cannot believe how fast his career has taken off and how well the movies have done - feeling extremely grateful that he got the opportunity to be a part of Twilight and adding that he doesn’t mind sharing the screen with Robert Pattinson.
And, as far as rumored girlfriend Taylor Swift is concerned, Lautner isn’t one to tell all. Asked if they’re together, he teases, “Possibly. We got along great. 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 got along. We’re close.”
