During an appearance on The Toast, Taylor said he’d “be lying” if he said that the divided fandom didn’t affect him.

“I was so young. I was 16 when Twilight came out, 17 for New Moon and Eclipse. I finished the franchise by the time I was 19,” he recalled.

“I was so young and yeah, I do feel like it was very strange traveling the world and being in different cities and having thousands of screaming fans either taking your side or the other guy’s side,” he continued.

Taylor noted that they were a team, but said “it was a little bizarre, the competitiveness.”

However, he made it clear that he and Robert weren’t at odds: “There wasn’t a competitiveness between me and Rob, but having that constant reminder, it definitely had an impact.”
