Eclipse eclipse taylorlautner 652 article story main1 Eclipse Press Conference Hit Fix Live Blog: Taylor Launter taylor lautner eclipse press conference eclipse Taylor Lautner attended The Twilight Saga Eclipse press conference Saturday June 12th.   Here’s Hit Fix’s live blog of Taylor’s press conference. 

10:35 a.m. “Probably the people around me. They’re what I care about. They’re my motivation.” That’s Taylor’s answer to the first question, regarding what drives him. He says he also drives a car that gets him from Point A to Point B.

10: 36 a.m. “I was bummed that I wasn’t involved in too much action… I got to kiss Bella for the first time,” Taylor says of new things in this movie. He says he and Rob didn’t compare notes.

10:37 a.m. “I’m so thankful for the franchise and everything it’s provided,” Taylor says, saying he’s had the time of his life. He says choosing future projects is a gut instinct. It’s whatever he can watch. It’s also whenever he can finish a script. He adds, “I want to challenge myself on a lot of different things.”

10:39 a.m. “Occasionally you really want some ice cream,” Taylor says, regarding the desire to cheat in his diet. He explains that it’s actually just as difficult to keep the muscle mass as it was to acquire it in the first place. He says it’s 10 times harder. We don’t ask to check his math.

10:40 a.m. “Jacob matures quite a bit,” Taylor says, though he emphasizes that the changes are all from the book, because that’s what the fans want to see. 

10:40 a.m. Taylor gets to work with Robert Pattison more in this movie. “Usually I have to hate him in the scenes and it’s difficult. He’s such a funny nice guy,” Taylor says. Awww… “As soon as they call cut, we just bust out laughing,” he says.

10:41 a.m. The tent scene is his favorite scene he got to do with Rob.

10:41 a.m. Even Taylor is amused by his frequent shirtlessness. “Those are the awkward scenes, where everybody is fully closed and it’s raining and I’m waiting there, the only person just posing there.”

10:42 a.m. Taylor can’t tell us how “Breaking Dawn” will be split. 

10:42 a.m. “Whatever the book says, that’s most likely what we’re going to do,” Taylor on when he takes his shirt off.

10:43 a.m. “Chances are it might be a little different from the doll,” Taylor says, regarding the “Stretch Armstrong” movie. He adds, “The cool thing with the toy is that there is no story,” calling it “super-exciting and creative.”

10:44 a.m. Taylor says there are a lot more pros than cons to celebrities.

10:45 a.m. More on the tent scene, specifically the line where Jacob tells Edward, “After all, I’m hotter than you.” Context matters. Taylor says, “It’s another one of those lines that was a little difficult to say to Rob.”

10:45 a.m. “It’s by far my favorite movie,” Taylor says of “Eclipse.” He encourages you to see it. 

10:46 a.m. “Working with Mr. Cruise was really surreal. Making a movie with him would be one of my dreams,” says Taylor of his experiences with Les Grossman at the MTV Movie Awards.

10:46 a.m. Taylor has never been in a love triangle, at least not since elementary school. He says he wouldn’t want to find himself in the romantic situation depicted in the movie.

10:48 a.m. Ack. Awkward Taylor Swift question. No real answer. Clearly.

10:48 a.m. Taylor has only met Bill Condon once and very briefly, so they haven’t talked “Breaking Dawn.” He’s looking forward to those conversations.

10:49 a.m. “I think that was definitely the right thing to do,” Taylor says of breaking “Breaking Dawn” into two movies. “There’s just so much to do with the Wolfpack and the Baby.” If you could hear his tone as he says “the baby.” He sure sounds… wary. As he should.

10:50 a.m. Taylor’s guilty pleasures are “American Idol.” He hasn’t missed an episode in nine years. “I can’t believe I just said that.”

10:51 a.m. “Yeah. I really… I haven’t started thinking about it too much…” Taylor says of the “unique romantic entanglement” he has in “Breaking Dawn.” He adds, “That will be interesting, for sure.” 

10:51 a.m. “I wouldn’t say they’re weird, but they’re definitely passionate,” Taylor says of “weird” fan encounters.

10:52 a.m. “It definitely is surrounding yourself with your family and the friends you’ve been around forever,” Taylor says, regarding the key to staying grounded and not getting a swelled head. “We sit at home. We’re not that exciting. We watch ‘American Idol’ every Tuesday and Wednesday,” he says. 

10:53 a.m. Is anybody else thinking what I’m thinking? Taylor Lautner should TOTALLY be replacing Simon Cowell as the new “American Idol” judge.

10:54 a.m. “Yeah, you can be creative. It’s a matter of choosing where you go and when you go,” Taylor says, regarding whether it’s possible for him to go out in public. He says he has low-key restaurants he goes to, but sometimes he just wants to go bowling, even if it becomes a zoo.

10:55 a.m. Is there anything Taylor’s looking to take home with him after the movies end, anything of sentimental value? ”It would probably be those little jean-shorts.”

10:55 a.m. The whole cast, they’re all friends. Taylor can’t imagine filming without the whole cast. They hang out on the weekends. “We will definitely maintain friendship for a very long time past this franchise.”

10:56 a.m. Taylor says that looks for stories when he eyes future projects. He’s “super-excited” to get going on “Abduction,” which starts production in three weeks.

10:57 a.m. Has Taylor ever fought for a woman in real life? “Yeah. Definitely. If it’s important to you… Yeah, I’ve fought for a woman.”

10:57 a.m. Another “Breaking Dawn” question. Does Taylor want to keep the “out-there” elements of the book. He says it’s “super-important” to remain faithful to the books. “There may have to be a few little changes here and there,” he acknowledges. “I think that Bill Condon, whatever he does is going to turn out amazing.”

10:58 a.m. That’s it for Taylor. Kristen is next…

    “10:42 a.m. “Whatever the book says, that’s most likely what we’re going to do,” Taylor on when he takes his shirt off.”
    When I first read that I thought he said that while taking his shirt off at that moment and I was like “I HAVE TO SEE A VID OF THIS INTERVIEW” And then I got really disappointed when I re-read it :(
    Love Taylor though.

    Love Taylor! He's so nice!! I really thank his family, especially his father. They should be proud of him.

    “Yeah, I’ve fought for a woman.”

    Wow…Taylor must be a hopeless romantic!! :D

    Can't wait to see the video!!

  • Winndsinger

    I love that line, Jacob saying to Edward in the tent, “After all, I'm hotter than YOU.” Not a line from the book, but a good one nonetheless. I'm Team Edward but I'm gonna LOVE the bickering and the back and forth between Edward and Jacob. After all, that almost fight scene with them in front of Charlie's house…WOW!! This is what I knew was coming and was waiting for when Jacob and Edward's eyes first meet at the end of Twilight. Those stares BOTH were so intense and BRILLIANTLY acted ! That's when I knew Taylor would be Jacob all the way through. Great job by both ! Let the games begin BOYS !!

  • [(αℓρħα т.∂.ℓ)] Ell.Tee.Em's!!

    Hmm… I Wonder What Woman He Had To Fight For?
    *cough* “Alpha” *cough*

  • TeamHelloBiceps♥KwopKilawtley♥

    wow! he fought for a woman! if any girl ever breaks your heart taylor….i will VERY gladly kick her a$$.

  • teamhardwick

    Taylor should give MR some tips, I think he gets Jacob and the whole Twilight books far better than that witch. Go Taylor! I'm still Team Edward, but u have to love Taylors dedication, hard work and talent.

    gorgeous, Gorgeous, GORGEOUS on the inside and out!

    Question is… non-showbiz or showbiz? I'd like to think he wanted things to work out with his ex Sara, but perhaps she didn't want to be in the spotlight. I definitely don't want to say Swifty… but that's also possible. W/E. :p!!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/veecia accv_LiKEOMGi<3TAYDL:D

    ME!!!! I would NEVER, EVER hurt you. I promise. I won't let you down. :D HAHAHA. Sorry… had to take his line from NM. :p

  • http://www.twitter.com/veecia accv_LiKEOMGi<3TAYDL:D

    Funny you asked this. I just commented on that above. :p

  • [(αℓρħα т.∂.ℓ)] Ell.Tee.Em's!!

    Haha. I'm Seriously Curious.

  • Kez_MLIT…team riley ftw :)

    he is just gorgeous in charm, personality, sense of humour, looks!

    … team taylor :)

  • [(αℓρħα т.∂.ℓ)] Ell.Tee.Em's!!

    XD “Sure, Sure.”

  • CherBear87_TeamBella!

    My mom and I were talking about Taylor the other day (while looking at that pic of him in a wet t-shirt on the beach for rolling stone heehee) and we both agreed that he seems like a real sweetheart. Mom said he seems like the nice side of Jacob :) She's seen like no interviews of him and has only seen NM like twice and hasn't read any of the books but I'm happy that she caught on to the two sides of Jacob LOL

    And, of course, I will end this post with my usual question:
    June 30th? Are you here YET?? ;)
