LOS ANGELES — “ The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” black carpet was a bittersweet experience for fans of the series, as it marked the penultimate “Twilight” premiere. But leading man Taylor Lautner was only looking to the future when he caught up with MTV News during the live stream of the event.
In fact, he wasn’t even looking at the “Breaking Dawn” films as being the last time he’d be in a film with his co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Sure, there’s nothing more we as fans would love than for Lautner to star in another movie with Robsten in the near future, regardless what the genre was. But the 19-year-old “Abduction” star has one specific type of movie in mind for their movie reunion: a comedy.
“If I did a film again with them, I’d like to do a comedy. A super, super funny movie,” Lautner said. “I think they’re funny, especially when they’re together. Our relationships together are quite hilarious, so it would be a funny movie, for sure.”
So would it end up with him taking his shirt off again? “If the role requires it and I’m in love with it, then we’ll see,” he said.
Fortunately for fans of Lautner’s now-famous set of abs, his shirt apparently comes off within the opening minutes of “Breaking Dawn.” He might not be the biggest fan of the attention he gets for his sexy bod nowadays, but it seems like he’s willing to take it off to keep the fans happy. After all, they certainly have shown their dedication to the “Twilight” franchise.
“I don’t know if I could think of one thing,” Lautner said when asked what he’ll remember most from the “Twilight Saga” red carpets. “But the obvious thing to think of is all of these fans, them showing up again and again. Last year when they came out, they camped out for days. I thought, ‘That’s amazing. There’s no way they’ll do it next year.’ Sure enough, they did it. It’s unbelievable.”
