Taylor Lautner praises Twilight fans

It is hard to believe that Taylor Lautner is still only 20 years old, as it feels that he has been a part of our lives forever. Taylor shot to fame in 2008 when he appeared on the big screen for the first time as Jacob Black in Twilight and there has been no looking back since.

Taylor has become one of the biggest names in Hollywood and, along with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, he has been involved in one of the most memorable love triangles in movie history. Now, with the Twilight films on the verge of ending, Taylor has thanked the fans for being so supportive and hopes they appreciate the final movie.
 
Lautner said, “I just hope they’re happy and they’re proud because we really do make these movies for them. They’re the reason we are able to make them, their support is unreal and we’re so proud of this last one. This last one specifically wraps it up so nicely, it’s an amazing movie. During the movie, it’ll keep you on the edge of your seat but by the end, I think more than a few of the fans will be in tears.”
 
So go and get your tissues ready girls because the Twilight finale is almost here and there are sure to be plenty of tears. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will hit the big screen in the US and in the UK on November 16.
Taylor Lautner to play fat man in new movie
Taylor Lautner to play fat man in new movie

Twilight actor Taylor Lautner is renowned for his chiselled abs and constantly taking his top off in his movies to reveal his perfect body. However, it appears that all of that is set to change, as Taylor Lautner prepares for the role of a fat man in his next movie.

It has been reported that Taylor Lautner will need to put on around 30lbs for his new role and will not be allowed to work out, so that he gets himself in the required shape for the role.
 
It is claimed that a fat suit was offered as an alternative option but Taylor is so dedicated to his art, that he wanted it to look as real as possible, so chose to put the weight on. It shows just how seriously Taylor Lautner is taking his career, now that the Twilight movies are finished.
 
Taylor Lautner will be playing a fat killer butcher, who chops up the bodies of his victims and stores them in his meat freezer, in the Guy Ritchie directed English movie. It is also believed that Taylor will have to put on an English accent for the role. Now that is dedication to the art of acting.

Lily Collins to sport bushier eyebrows
Lily Collins to sport bushier eyebrows

It seems like an almost impossible task but it has been claimed that Mirror Mirror actress Lily Collins is set to let her eyebrows get even bigger and bushier for her next movie. The actress is renowned for having some of the biggest eyebrows in the business and is set to take it that step further.

Lily Collins appeared in the movie Abduction, alongside Taylor Lautner, last year, where people claimed that her eyebrows gave a better performance than Lily herself. Now it appears that Lily is looking to cash in on the talent of her eyebrows, by letting them grow to new extremes.
 
An insider explained, “Lily has come in for a little criticism for some of her most recent performances but people always manage to comment on well her eyebrows performed. So Lily has decided to make a change for the better and let her eyebrows become the real star.”
 
It is not yet known when we will get to see the new Lily Collins eyebrows on the big screen or if she will take the credit for the obvious talent of the eyebrows but we are sure that, given the chance, these eyebrows will rise to the challenge.

Liam Hemsworth the new Robert Pattinson
Liam Hemsworth the new Robert Pattinson

It seems strange that many people are comparing Liam Hemsworth to Robert Pattinson. Where do these comparisons come from? Is it because they are both foreign men making a name for themselves in a big movie franchise?

Robert Pattinson was the lead male character in the Twilight movies but Josh Hutcherson is the lead male character in The Hunger Games. If anything, surely Liam Hemsworth should be getting compared to Taylor Lautner, as they both play a similar sort of role in their respective movies.
 
However, it does not matter what we say, as everybody is already making the comparisons between Liam Hemsworth and Robert Pattinson and have even questioned the Aussie about the Brit. Liam responded, “Oh, I don’t know. He’s uh… I don’t know. I have no idea.”
 
He added, “I hope [I’m ready]… I’m trying to be. At the moment, I’m just enjoying the ride. It’s very exciting meeting so [many] passionate fans. I’m very fortunate to be a part of it.” The Hunger Games opened worldwide last week and has made an incredible $215m plus at the box office.

Taylor Lautner 2012 
Taylor Lautner 2012 

20 year old Twilight actor Taylor Lautner has pretty much been living off of the fact that he has appeared as Jacob Black in all of the Twilight movies and has not really done too much else. To be fair though, after last years Abduction, where he starred alongside Lily Collins, who can blame him.

Anyway, it appears that Taylor Lautner will be doing the same thing in 2012. In fact, Taylor Lautner’s 2012 will be even less busy that previous years, as he does not have a back up movie to promote or work on. So, Taylor will be living off of Twilight again this year.
 
Of course, Taylor Lautner will not be able to sit around doing nothing all year long, as the final instalment of the Twilight saga hits the big screen later this year. So, Taylor Lautner will have to once again team up with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to promote The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which is released in November.
 
So far, that is all that Taylor Lautner’s 2012 has install for him. However, it is still early in 2012 and there is still time for Taylor Lautner to find a part in some other movies. Unfortunately though, his acting ability is lacking and there are only so many movies where you can take your top off.
 
Who is looking forward to seeing what Taylor Lautner does post Twilight?
Is Taylor Lautner gay?
Is Taylor Lautner gay?

Ever since he appeared on our screens as Jacob Black in the hit movie Twilight, back in 2008, people have consistently been asking “Is Taylor Lautner gay?”. It is five years since Taylor first played Jacob Black in the Twilight series but the gay rumours are still going strong.

So why do people think Taylor Lautner is gay? Well it probably has a lot to do with the fact that he has to constantly have his shirt off in his movies. Then there is the fact that he can come across a little bit camp when he talks and he also dresses well, which people see as a sign of gayness.
 
However, the fact of the matter is, Taylor Lautner is not gay. Taylor has been romantically linked to a number of high profile girls. In 2009 it was claimed that Taylor Lautner was dating Taylor Swift, before it was then claimed that he was dating Selena Gomez.
 
More recently it was suggested that Taylor Lautner was dating his Abduction co-star Lily Collins. Yet, despite Taylor Lautner obviously not being gay, the Taylor Lautner gay rumours continue to do the rounds. Expect them to pick up steam again in November, when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is released.

Robert Pattinson questions Taylor Lautner’s acting ability?
Robert Pattinson questions Taylor Lautner’s acting ability?

Robert Pattinson has recently made some remarks about the Taylor Lautner topless scenes in movies, claiming that he does not understand why people do it. Robert admitted that he does not intend to do many shirtless scenes in the future, as he finds them unnecessary.

Pattinson explained, “I’d have to make a lifestyle change if I wanted to do shirtless acting. But it seems like every single actor in the world is going a Taylor Lautner scene, it’s crazy. They have a scene where they walk out with like a 12-pack.”
 
He added, “It’s like, ‘Really? You’re playing a normal guy! That doesn’t make any sense.’ But that’s a prerequisite of being an actor. Or you can get fat!” Seems like that could easily be misconstrued as a criticism of Taylor Lautner’s acting ability but we are sure he did not mean anything by it.
 
Robert Pattinson and his girlfriend Kristen Stewart were recently in Paris, France, where it is believed that Robert splashed out $1m on a luxury pad for the two of them. You can catch Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, which is released on November 16.

Taylor Swift looking for love
Taylor Swift looking for love

Country music singer Taylor Swift has revealed how she has been dreaming up different ways to find herself a new boyfriend. Taylor admits that she does not actually have a type, when it comes to the opposite sex but claims that it is very hard to meet anyone with all the touring and being backstage. However, she has decided that she will go to them and has chosen the perfect place.

Swift explained, “I don’t think I have a type actually. My friends are always pointing that out constantly! They say, ‘You’re so all over the place’ but that makes it fun because you never know who you’ll meet and where you’ll meet them. I have this very romantic idea about meeting someone.”
 
She added, “Just meeting them, meeting them. Just bumping into them, which is hard, because I’m backstage and all these weird places where you can’t just bump into someone. I do go to the grocery store a lot! That’s where it’s going to happen!” Taylor Swift has previously dated Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal and was most recently linked to Zac Efron but it turns out that the two are just good friends.
Twilight: New Moon director Chris Weitz discusses new film A Better Life
Twilight: New Moon director Chris Weitz discusses new film A Better Life

Many of you will probably know the name Chris Weitz from his directing the hit movie Twilight: New Moon and with his new movie A Better Life receiving rave reviews, you are likely to hear much more of the director. While the self confessed Lawrence of Arabia fan admitted, “I would love to direct a samurai epic,” A Better Life is a lower budget movie which has a tremendous impact on the viewer. Chris was kind enough to take the time to talk to FansShare about Twilight, A Better Life and what he has coming up.

FS. Congratulations on A Better Life it is a fantastic movie.
 
CW. Thank you! It has been an amazing feeling seeing people respond to the movie and now to have Demian Bichir nominated for an Oscar for his performance. Tremendously gratifying.
 
FS. How did you come to direct the movie?
 
CW. My friend Christian McLaughlin, one of the producers on the movie, gave me a copy of the script that Eric Eason had written. It was the best thing I had read in 20 years and I felt I just had to do it.
 
FS. What made you agree to direct the movie?
 
CW. I had been wanting to make a change from bigger blockbuster-type stuff. Also, this needed to shoot in LA, where I live, and would offer me the opportunity/excuse to learn Spanish.
 
FS. What can you tell us about the movie?
 
CW. It is, on the one hand, a very intimate movie about a father and his love for his son, and on the other a universally applicable movie about immigration and politics.
 
FS. How did Demián Bichir stand out from others who auditioned for the role?
 
CW. He was my first and prohibitive choice. I had a good feeling about him from the first time I saw him in Che and that feeling has been borne out.
 
FS. Did you realise that his performance would have the impact that it has, while you were filming?
 
CW. I knew it was a terrific performance. I did not know it would move so many people so deeply and receive this amount of recognition.
 
FS. You have been involved in some very big movies, how does directing a big movie differ or compare to the smaller movies?
 
CW. Making a movie is immensely challenging no matter what the budget level, because you are always trying to squeeze the most out of what resources you have. You are always working on the edge.
 
FS. Which do you prefer to do?
 
CW. I find them all equally terrifying.
 
FS. Do you have any upcoming projects?
 
CW. I am masking some short pieces for the Center for American progress, a DC think-tank, about immigration reform and Alabama HB56, the most regressive immigration law in the country.
 
FS. What can you tell us about them?
 
CW. They will be focusing on the immorality of this law and its bad effect in the economy and reputation of the state of Alabama, where many people disagree with it.
 
FS. What advice would you give to any aspiring actors, writers, directors etc.?
 
CW. You can’t control anything but the quality of your work.
 
FS. We are huge Twilight fans. How was directing New Moon?
 
CW. A delight.
 
FS. What were Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart like to work with?
 
CW. I can honestly say that I had a great time with all three. We got along great. I respected their ability to do their jobs, they respected mine, and we just took it from there.
 
FS. What were they like off screen?
 
CW. Quirky, different individuals, as unlike their characters as you can imagine. They have to face the strange atmosphere created by the success of these films and they do a great job of it.
 
FS. Who is the best actor/actress that you have ever worked with?
 
CW. I plead the fifth on that one.
 
FS. What is your favourite movie that you have worked on and why?
 
CW. A Better Life, eventually, because, while I can find many reasons to love all of the others and the people I’ve had a chance to meet and work with, I think this one can affect the most change.
 
Chris Weitz also revealed how excited he was for Demian Bichir to receive his SAG Award nomination, “I’m very excited for Demián, especially now that we can add Independent Spirit and Academy Award nominations to the list!” he explained. For those of you who have yet to see A Better Life, we highly recommend it. Director Chris Weitz has hit the nail on the head with this movie and the performance of Demián Bichir is simply fantastic, we cannot recommend it highly enough.

Taylor Lautner talks fans, food and London

Twilight actor Taylor Lautner has revealed how it took him quite a bit of time to get used to how excited the fans got around him but that he now understands why they act the way they do. Taylor admits that he tries not to go to any of the popular restaurants at the busiest times, to avoid being mauled by screaming fans.

Lautner explained, “It can be difficult. But now I’m used to the screaming and the occasional grabbing. The first time it ever happened I was like, ‘WOAH! What’s going on? Why are they screaming? Why are they touching me?’ But now I get the fans’ passion. We understand it so it’s not that crazy to us anymore. I just have to be more strategic about where I go, so I don’t go to the hippest restaurants at the busiest times.” Taylor then discussed his visits to London.
 
He added, “I’ve been there three or four times, but it’s always flying straight in and out on promotion for a film. This time I’m here a bit longer, so I’m going to hit up Rob [Pattinson] about where I should go. I’ve heard there are some great restaurants, so I’m really looking forward to trying them.” Taylor Lautner can be seen on the big screen as Jacob Black for the final time, when The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is released on November 16.
