PopSugar brought one lucky fan to San Diego to meet Taylor Lautner for the ‘I’m a Huge Fan’ series! Below is the first episode where you get to meet the fan, Sara! The young mom of three is off to California to interview the star, but first she has to prepare by getting to know the world of Taylor. We will post the other episodes as they become available.
Los Angeles Times has posted a new interview that they’ve done with Taylor Lautner! He talks ‘Abduction,’ fame, his new car and more:
On why ‘Abduction’ piqued his interest:
“I don’t know why, but I’m always looking to challenge myself as much as possible,” he said with an earnest grin. “Plus, I had always been an action fan and been fans of actors like [Matt] Damon and Harrison Ford. What I love about their action movies is that they’re not just action movies. They’re playing a character that goes through an incredible journey.”
On creating a career outside of the Twilight Saga franchise:
“I’m just hoping that the fans can support me doing completely different things outside of the franchise,” he said. “And yeah, I mean, there probably is a lot at stake. It definitely crosses my mind, and I would be lying if I said I feel no pressure. But whenever that thought does come in my mind, I try to push it out as quickly as possible. I try and just stay focused on things that I can control.”
On his new whip (a a 2012 SLS AMG Mercedes-Benz worth more than $200, 000)
“It took me a long time to decide to get it, but it’s an amazing car. I definitely don’t drive it much. It’s kind of, like, stored away,” he said. “My parents definitely always taught me to save and be smart financially. I hope I’m doing that — and I believe I am.”
