Nymag.com’s Vulture blog caught up with Taylor Lautner at Monday night’s premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse to talk about how he dodges the paparazzi (not very well) and which Twilight star most worships his own body:
Don’t you ever put on a hat and sunglasses and go to McDonald’s or something?
Oh, yeah! I mean, you try, but weirdly enough, it doesn’t really work very well. I put a hat on, tuck it down, put huge glasses on; I look at myself in the mirror, and I’m like, Great, I look nothing like myself. This is going to be awesome. Walk outside — it doesn’t work. [Laughs.] I don’t know why.
Which of you is the most body-obsessed?
[Thinks.] Um, I don’t know — it’s hard to choose because everybody’s working out. I mean, obviously for my character, I’ve got to do that quite a bit. But, yeah, Peter’s always in the gym; Kellan’s always in the gym; the wolf pack is always in the gym — it requires a lot of hard work.
Which one complains about the exercise the most?
I would have to give that award probably to Bronson [Pelletier], who plays Jared, one of the wolf-pack members.
