Taylor lautner dating 2016
Initially, director Chris Weitz wanted to recast the role of Jacob Black for Twilight's sequel, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, due to the major physical changes that occur in Black between the two novels, and have an actor that would accurately portray "the new, larger Jacob Black." Black's role in the novel also increases significantly, with him falling in love with Bella and becoming a werewolf, putting the actor in a starring role.Representatives for Weitz had stated that they were make a full effort to recast the "high-profile gig," and MTV News confirmed that Weitz was looking at Michael Copon to take on the role; however, Summit Entertainment said a decision had not been made.Several critics credit Lautner's physical characteristics for much of the success of the Twilight series, with critic Sharon Waxman stating, "as a tabloid teen idol, he certainly deserves some credit for New Moon's 0 million worldwide gross." Lautner's abs in particular have been subject to media attention, with The Wrap stating that companies bidding for the actor in movies in 2011 would "shell out for the young actor's much-on-display though mostly untried abs." Before the actor turned 18, his sexualized image was often critiqued, and subject to controversy.
Lautner resides with his parents and younger sister in Valencia, California, which he says he prefers because of the paparazzi.
Lautner has stated that he does not want to be just known for his looks, as some have attributed his popularity to that and not his actual acting skill.
In an interview, the actor revealed that he was originally supposed to have a baring scene in the movie Valentine's Day. He's gonna take off his shirt in the middle of school? The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it's written in the book that way.
