On the Twilight cast, behind the scenes: “In the beginning, it was innocent and fun, and we were like one big happy family – it was like being at sleepaway camp. And then success comes along and changes the dynamic. We’re not all best friends, and we’re not all going to hang out together after the final movie is done.” – Nikki Reed in the December/January issue of Seventeen
On people’s misconceptions of her: “I got typecast as a party girl when Thirteen first came out. The funny thing was, I was a virgin, I didn’t do drugs, and I barely drank.” – Nikki Reed in the December/January issue of Seventeen
Enjoy all the new Taylor Lautner goodness (pics & quotes) from the new October issue of Seventeen Magazine! Read below as he chats about love, relationships, Jacob and more!
“I finished high school while filming movies. And then as soon as I was done, I enrolled in my local community college and got 12-15 credits out of the way really quickly. After that, it just got too busy, but if I get a break again, going back definitely interests me—I might be interested in studying psychology.”
Breaking a Sweat
“Abduction was super-physical for me. I’d never boxed before, so I had to train for a couple of months. The last time I wrestled was when I was six years old, so I had to work on that. And then there was the motorcycle training. I rode a few dirt bikes in New Moon and Eclipse, but in Abduction, it was a legit street racing bike. And I’m not the biggest motorcycle fan—they’re cool and a lot of fun, but they’re scary as well!”
“I like to have fun, but I don’t think of myself as being funny. But I’m a big jokester, so I make fun of myself a lot!”
From a Guy’s Perspective…
“I would totally be there for a girl friend, to giver her a guy’s perspective [on relationships], which I’m sure would be completely different from a girl’s perspective. So it would probably end up confusing for her anyway. Maybe it’s a good thing that my girl friends haven’t asked me for too much advice…[laughs]“
Let’s Talk About Love
“It’s important to work through things in a relationship. You can’t just give up because you’re frustrated. It’s most important to talk things through together. And that, for me, has been the way I’ve best resolved problems in the past.”
“I still live with my family, but the great thing is that I’m not the guy who likes to go out so much. I don’t really find that whole world intriguing. So the most I’ll do is either have friends over or go to a friend’s house.”
Singing in the Shower
“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.”
Losing in Love
“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.”
Good Luck Charm
“I have a football with me a lot on set. It’s comforting to me, even if that sounds really weird. I’m always carrying a football and playing catch with the cast and crew. Because when I’m at home, I’m always throwing it with my friends and family!”
While flipping through the March 2011 issue of Seventeen Magazine, I came across this page about Ashley Greene and her involvement with DonateMyDress.org which helps get prom dresses to girls who cannot afford one for prom.
I also scanned the pic from her Mark Cosmetic campaign because I don’t remember seeing it before, so it might be a new image. (my scanner is awful & made it so you could see the other page through it, lol… sorry.)
Here is another awesome video from Seventeen! Charlie Bewley, Michael Welch, Alex Meraz and Kiowa Gordon talk about the rest of the members of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse cast and vote on their superlatives.
So we’ve established that Alex Meraz is fond of Taylor! Alex is like an older version of Taylor Lautner.
♥As always thank you so much Beth for being such a huge help!
