Taylor Lautner proudly presents his toned physique on the cover of the July 2010 issue of GQ.
The 18-year-old actor dished to the magazine about his fight to keep the role of Jacob Black, how grateful he is for Kristen Stewart, and the tease that is a promo trip.
“I’m in the gym and I’m doing reps, and I’m reading the books, and I’m studying the character,” Taylor told GQ how he stays in the character of ’Jacob.’ ”I’m just saying to myself, ‘I want this role. I love this role. I’m not gonna lose it. And I’m gonna know it better than anybody, and I’m gonna do that extra rep, because I’m gonna be Jacob Black.’”
“It’s a tease, is what it is,” Taylor responded in reference to the Twilight promo trips. ”You show up in Paris, and on the drive from the airport to the hotel you’re like, ‘This is so cool! I want to see something! I want to go to the Eiffel Tower!’ And then you leave the next morning. You think, Oh, I didn’t get to do anything. I tell people. I’ve been just about everywhere, but I’ve seen nothing.”
Taylor also described his surreal Oscar experience, “I would have passed out if she (Kristen) wasn’t there! You’re looking down and you’re talking to George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio—and they’re listening to you!”
The new issue hits stands on Tuesday, June 22nd.
