Here is a great interview never released before until recently with Taylor during an event for The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl! Enjoy!
Jack Dennis (JD): So what do you think of being at a carnival for a premiere?
Taylor Lautner (TL): Oh, it’s really fun. Everyone is having a good time and it’s so nice here. We are excited to be here meeting everyone. This was a good idea. It’s fun signing autographs and it’s nice to see the others. It is a fun experience.
JD: Who is asking for autographs more, the boys or the girls?
TL: (laughs) Mainly, uh, the boys. But, you know, I sign for the girls too. (Grins and laughs again). But it is kind of weird. I’m not use to it. It’s hard to believe they really want my autograph or picture, but it’s fun.
JD: How is it working with Robert Rodriguez (director)?
TL: It’s very fun. He likes to play video games and he plays with us a lot. He is such a good director because he worked and helped us a lot. The green screen and the 3-D stuff can be hard work and challenging. You have to twist your body and shape it in different shapes. So he would help us a lot with things like that. You have to have a good imagination. But he is good about painting a picture in our head. You know, like, do this over here, do that over there. Being on 3-D sometimes he would show us how to move differently like stick your hand out toward the front of the camera so that it sticks out towards the audience. It was very excited working for him. He is the best.
JD: What would you say you learned most from him?
TL: (laughs) Well besides the 3-D stuff, I learned to be humble. Look at him. He’s wearing a cowboy hat, bright blue cowboy shirt and jeans with holes in them. He likes this big star director, but he is down to earth and a lot of fun. We all loved him.
