I have had someone ask me to sign their 'Team Taylor' panties. She wasn't a teenager. She was in her 40s.— Taylor Lautner
The most uplifting Taylor Lautner quotes you will be delighted to read
You show up in Paris, and on the drive from the airport to the hotel you're like, 'This is so cool! I want to see something! I want to go to the Eiffel Tower!' And then you leave the next morning. You think, Oh, I didn't get to do anything. I tell people: I've been just about everywhere, but I've seen nothing.
I like to think of myself as very loyal, and I love everyone I surround myself with, whether they're friends or girlfriends or whatever.
Honesty and loyalty are key. If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that's probably the biggest key to success.
Oh, it's soo hard being famous! I can't date anybody because everybody just wants my hot body and my Twilight millions!
I've never been in a love triangle. I would not want to be in that situation.
Does my being half-naked bother you?
Honestly I try to stay away from what has been written about me because if you let that stuff get to you and it's not true, it can drive you crazy.
I was in the gym five days a week, two hours a day.
At one point, I was going seven days straight. I had put on a lot of weight, and then I started losing it drastically, so I was worried. It turned out I was overworking myself. My trainer told me that I couldn't break a sweat, because I was burning more calories than I was putting on.
There's a million more pros than cons, for sure.
Obviously, the privacy thing is a little different. It's not normal to wake up and have 12 paparazzi cars waiting outside to follow you to Starbucks in the morning. But, there's a lot more pros, and I'm willing to put up with those cons, for sure.
I think the fans would love anybody who played Jacob.
I'm just lucky to be the one who got the chance.
I get nervous before everything - dates, filming, awards shows.
I love challenging myself, doing different things and exploring different areas that I haven't been to or gone to before. That's what I love about acting, and that's what I love about film.
I've been lucky enough to be surrounded by close friends and family and they've definitely kept me grounded.
The day I finished 'Twilight,' I came home and started bulking up.
For 'New Moon,' I'm 30 pounds heavier than I was in 'Twilight.'
Some of the actors that I love most have challenged themselves throughout their entire career. That's my goal.
It's definitely important to stay true to yourself and stay close to those people who you were close to before [becoming famous]. Family, your friends, and just not let that outside stuff get to you.
Filming 'Eclipse' - Eclipse was my favorite book so I was really excited to start filming the movie. I just love that it's the height of the love triangle. 'Twilight' develops Edward and Bella's relationship, 'New Moon' develops Jacob and Bella's and in 'Eclipse,' the three of them are physically together.
When you do a normal film, you play the character for three months and you say goodbye to him. And then, when you watch the movie, you say, "I wish I could have done that differently. I wish I could have added this to it."
Honestly, I try and stay away from what's been written about me, because if you let that stuff get to you and it's not true it can drive you crazy. One thing that I have heard recently which is not true, I didn't say it, is that I believe I was quote saying 'I will never take my shirt off for a movie again.' I didn't say that.
The thing I love is that my home life hasn't changed.
I still help out with the garbage. I still help out with the lawn.
If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie, but I guess that's not very realistic. I certainly won't be asking to do it, though.
The actual getting into the gym and working out process was easier, but the eating was harder. I had to eat every two hours. At one point, my trainer said, 'Put anything in your mouth. Go to McDonald's, get the biggest shake possible. I just need to get calories in you.' Because my body fat at the time was only, like, 7.5%.
I got the famous Oprah hug!
There's no ex out there who I'm not friends with today, and I'm extremely thankful for that.
I was not a vampire or werewolf fan at all.
I'd never even heard of the series. I auditioned for the role, and as soon as I got it, I started reading the books. I'm not a reader, but I really did get hooked on them.
Canada is great. It's one of the most beautiful cities and I'm definitely going to miss it a lot.
There's some things you just have to live with.
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.
I was viewed as a little bit of an outcast.
I didn't have one group of friends who I hung out with every single day. I would have friends on my football team, friends in drama, friends in video production, and I would hand out with different people. I know that wasn't the normal thing to do in high school. The normal thing is to be ina group or be part of a clique. But for me, I love hanging out with different people and just having fun.
I guess winning an Oscar is the ultimate dream.
A lot of amazing actors go their whole career without even being nominated. So that would definitely be a goal to reach. It's a difficult one, but I'm aiming for it!
I don't want to become known as just a body.
If I love the character and if I love the story, and the character requires me to be shirtless, or if it requires me to lose 30 pounds, I'm ready to do it.
I am so crazy with my music taste and I'm so .
... I mean, I'll listen to a song. I'll become obsessed with it and then I'm on to the next one. It's just very inconsistent.
My parents are pretty good about keeping me humble. They brought me up good.
If I start thinking, 'Is this movie going to open? Is this movie going to do well?' I'm not focusing on the job. The job is to make a good movie.
I remember when I first moved to L.A. from Michigan when I was 11 years old and I walked down the Walk of Fame and looked at the hand and foot prints of the stars and it was the coolest thing. And I never thought that mine would actually be there one day, so when it happened it was so surreal and such an honor
I've always been really active. I grew up playing sports, so I'm always shooting hoops or throwing the football with my friends. I'm super-active in that sense.
I can definitely relate to Jacob's feelings in Breaking Dawn.
When he gets the invitation to the wedding, he doesn't handle it very well. And I don't think I would either. If I were in love with a girl and she told me she was marrying somebody else, that would crush me. And that's what it does. It destroys Jacob.
I was exercising so hard that I began to lose weight.
Boxing is so loose and flowy, and martial arts is more stiff, and about strength and structure.
I believe you can never stop growing and learning and I've been very fortunate to have been working since I was 10 or 11-years-old. I have learned so much throughout the years working with amazing directors and great actors as well. This was really a huge step for me because it's very different from anything that I've done before but I think the biggest difference here is that the cast we were surrounded by in this movie was unbelievable.
I live with my family. I moved to L.A. eight years ago, and it's the same room. But I'm looking now. I might get a condo.
I am so all over the place with my music taste, it's ridiculous.
It is! I mean, I find myself listening to weird things like hardcore techno music and then I'll be listening to mainstream hip-hop music. But it's like I am so crazy with my music taste. I'll listen to a song, I'll become obsessed with it, and then I'm on to the next one. So it's just very inconsistent.
I'm a big fan of all those singing competition shows.
Most recently, I've been into The Voice. It's one of my secrets! And I'm definitely looking forward to The X Factor, especially because I'm a huge Simon Cowell fan. Personally, I sing for fun, but mainly in the shower, when I'm alone. Other people definitely do not want to hear me sing.
I love action films. I'd love to do an action drama. I'm always looking to give my character something action-oriented to do.
Playing hard to get is not the way to win me over.
I'm definitely more for the girl who can smile and laugh all the time and just have a good time!
It's tough because sometimes you'll just be on the web and things pop up or you get emailed something from a friend. It is definitely impossible to avoid stuff about me sometimes, but it's pretty important to try. It's very rare that things are true about yourself that are on the Internet. It's just sad sometimes. So you definitely try and stay away from it as much as possible.
I love to have fun and goof around and be silly, so anybody who can also do that is good for me.
At one point I had to shove as much food in my body as possible to pack on calories. My trainer wanted me to do six meals a day and not go two hours without eating. If I would cheat on eating one day, I could tell - I'd drop a few pounds.
Probably the people around me and the people I care about.
They are my motivation. That's probably what drives me to succeed. Family and friends.
