Rolling Stone’s latest issue features someone we all recognize, Taylor Lautner. The magazine has a Q&A with Taylor, along with a behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot (you have to scroll down a bit to see it) and a photo gallery.
Don’t you think that when some fans see New Moon, they may be disappointed, because you’re kind of the villain in a way.
TL: I have some pretty passionate team Jacob fans [laughs].
But when your character hangs up on Edward in New Moon, it sets off the whole chain of events that almost lead to a major tragedy. That’s something a villain would do.
TL: Yes. that is part of Jacob’s character. He can’t really control himself. When he gets mad, he gets mad. And all Jacob has on his mind is on Bella. That’s who he cares for. That’s who he loves. If somebody gets in his way, it’s not good. And he will explode. So I guess you could see that either way.
I understand the book’s appeal: it’s a great fantasy for someone to have two powerful good-looking guys who can have anybody fighting over her. It’s a classic romance, with fangs and fur heightening it.
TL: Definitely. And I admit proudly that I enjoyed the series. I was not a book reader at all. But then when I read them, they hook you. I feel like each book, and more so the movies, are just getting more exciting and better and better. With New Moon, you know, it’s not just the love story between these two anymore. Now there are three people, and it’s dangerous.
