Of transforming into a werewolf in the Twilight sequel, he says:
“I think the most important thing with Jacob is that pre-transformation, he’s clumsy. He trips over his own feet. As soon as he transforms, he’s very agile. At one point, he flings himself through Bella’s window and lands at her feet, and that’s the first time Bella realizes this is a new Jacob: He never used to be this agile. I loved bringing out that side of him. The bummer is, when he becomes a wolf, that’s not actually me. When he does the cool fight scenes, he’s transformed into CGI.”
Taylor Lautner talks with Access Hollywood‘s Shaun Robinson about some of the grueling shirtless scenes he had to shoot for New Moon and his rumored girlfriend Selena Gomez at MTV’s Movie Awards on Sunday.
Lautner describes trying to look like “hot” like a werewolf despite being shirtless with nothing but shorts in the midst of a freezing downpour of rain and says the next installation in the “Twilight” series is filled with heartbreak and will “rip your heart to shreds.”
As for his rumored girlfriend, teen star Selena Gomez, with whom he has been photographed hanging out with in Vancouver, Canada, he says, “she’s a great girl, great friend.”
Filmmakers of Twilight made the actors portraying the wolf pack in New Moon prove their Native American heritage before being cast in the sequel.
Looking fierce and shirtless in an exclusive photo shoot shot by renown photog James White for USA Today, the actors who’ll be standing alongside Jacob Black (cutie Taylor Lautner) are: Paul (Alex Meraz), Sam (Chaske Spencer), Jared (Bronson Pelletier) and Embry (Kiowa Gordon), a gang of werewolves in New Moon (out November 20).
“It’s not pleasant for the actors,” says director Chris Weitz of the actors having to shoot half-naked in Vancouver’s cold elements. “But they have all been good-natured. They show up on location in drenching, cold rain, and I say, ‘OK, off with the robes.’ “
