Taylor Lautner isn’t hiding the fact that he loves The Notebook.
The 17-year-old Twilight hunk recently caught up with BoxOffice.com to dish on his fans, The Notebook and why Twilight is going to appeal to more guys. Check it:
On his guilty pleasure movie: “The Notebook. I don’t think I should be embarrassed to admit it thoughâ€”it’s a great movie. I’m not embarrassed. I’m saying it proudly.”
On his fans: “All I can say is it’s mind-blowing. I, myselfâ€”and nobody elseâ€”ever expected it, so it’s incredible to have the support and the passion of the fans behind us. We’re so thankful because we wouldn’t be here today on movie number three in Vancouver if it wasn’t for them. They’re amazing.”
On how Jacob develops during the series: “The only difference is in New Moon, I play pre-transformation Jacob, and post. He doesn’t transform into a werewolf until halfway through the film. For pre-transformation, the books describe Jacob as clumsy. He trips over his own feetâ€”he’s a kid. And as soon as he transforms, he all of a sudden because extremely agile. There’s several scenes that show his new agility, so that was the biggest thing I had to bring out.”
On why guys will be drawn to New Moon: “There’s a lot more action than Twilight. It’s more excitingâ€”it has werewolves and vampires, which creates fights because they don’t get along. Not only does the action step up, but the whole story line does as well. Now there’s a third person involved.”
On his favorite part of the series: “I love Jacob and Bella’s relationship. It’s very different from Edward and Bella’s. Jacob and Bella start off as really good friends. They become best friendsâ€”they can tell each other anything, they do whatever together, ride motorcycles. I love that. And then their relationship starts growing into more and more, and you wonder if they’re going to go past friends. I love being able to do that. And work with an amazing actress, Kristen Stewart, and all of the help around us, our director Chris Weitz, the whole crew. It’s a lot of fun.”
