Here are a few of the other seven revelations. Check out the rest at Movie|Line!
1. Lautner and co-star/love interest Lily Collins didn’t let the film’s PG-13 rating get in the way of their… commitment… to their performances during one “steamy” scene.“That’s why [there’s] the cut off or the little, ‘I’m getting hungry,’ excuse right before. It was great. We went for it, and sometimes those scenes can be awkward. It just depends, but thankfully it was all good.”
2. Lautner convinced Singleton and Co. to let him do some of his own stunts, including a game of Ship’s Mast that had him riding the hood of a car at up to 55 mph.“That one took some negotiating from me to allow them to let me do that. At first they were like, ‘No. That’s not happening. You are not getting on the hood of that truck.’ Somehow I convinced them to allow me to do it, but then they were like, ‘OK. But you’re only going twenty miles an hour.’ I was like, ‘Come on, people. Haven’t you ever heard of method acting? I need to be able to relate to the adrenaline that this character is experiencing.’ So, we got up to about fifty, fifty five which was not quite the eighty on the speedometer, but it was fast.”
3. Lautner has a sense of humor about who his Twilight character Jacob winds up falling for in Breaking Dawn. [SPOILER] At least in Abduction he gets the girl who’s his own age. “Right, I know. Still, even in the last one he ends up with the kid. It was a great feeling, a great feeling to actually end up the girl.” [END SPOILERS]
4. The most fun he’s had acting didn’t come as Shark Boy, Jacob Black, or the parkouring hero of Abduction but in drag. “I had the time of my life with SNL where I got to dress up as a girl and dress up as this foreign blonde pop star, playing these weird roles like he did with that. I have a lot of fun doing that. So, I’d definitely be open to that.”
5. Abduction, which Lautner filmed between The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and the two series-ending Breaking Dawn installments, was the 19-year-old’s most challenging role to date. Or Breaking Dawn was. One of them. “This movie stretched me as an actor more than I’d ever been stretched before. It was perfect before in Breaking Dawn Part 1, specifically, my character, he gets so emotional and he changes so much. Now that was by far the most I’ve ever been stretched, and it was great to ease into it with Abduction right before that. So, this was a great experience and then leading into that.”
Abduction is in theaters September 23.
