The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Lautner at the Abduction Hollywood premiere, to find out just what the actor has planned for his next move.
“My dream is to continue to challenge myself in a wide variety for roles and genres,” he told THR on the red carpet. “That’s why I love this so much. It’s different than anything I’ve ever done before and next I look forward to doing something different as well.” …
“I’m always open for a great comedy,” he admitted. “I just like having fun and with comedy — so like, Valentine’s Day, Funny or Die, SNL — I just go out there and be myself and have fun.”
Naturally, much ado has been made of the steamy kisses Lautner and Collins share, as well as how much action and stunt work they do in the film. So on Thursday night, when MTV News headed out to the star-studded premiere, where Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were among the VIP attendees, we asked the leading man and lady to compare and contrast the challenges involved in filming action scenes vs. kissing scenes.
“Ooof. Two different kinds of action, right?” Lautner said with a smile. “We’ve got both of them in this movie, that’s for sure. One’s a little easier than the other,” he said, hinting at the kissing scene.
“Well, the action scenes, we shot the majority of them in the middle of the night so those were kind of difficult because we were tired,” Collins said. “The kissing scene, everyone was laughing all around us, everyone was making it really fun, but at the same time trying not to laugh in the middle of it, so that was kind of difficult.”
“There was a lot of laughing,” Lautner agreed. “We’re good friends, so it was all easy.”
