Taylor Lautner Makes Her Fiancée Public Tay Dome is a ‘Twilight’ fan, but she isn’t on Jacob’s side.
Taylor Lautner chatted with ‘Today’s Jason Kennedy about his worldwide ‘Twilight’ fame, his break from acting, his recent engagement, and more.
Twilight is loved by millions of people, including Taylor Lautner’s fiancée, Tay Dome, 24. The 29-year-old actor admitted to Today’s Jason Kennedy on Thursday, January 27 that his soon-to-be-wife enjoys the Twilight franchise, but prefers Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen over Taylor’s Jacob Black.
«I’m going to call her out right now.» Taylor laughed as he continued, «She didn’t team Jacob.» «She’s tying the knot with the other team.» Edward was a team player. It’s still the case.»
Despite the fact that Taylor was «a die-hard team Edward» before the couple’s lovely romance, he’s «converted» her to team Jacob. «She had a big role in getting me back to where I am now.»

Jason, 40, was also interviewed by Taylor on dealing with the worldwide Twilight celebrity and his decision to stop performing in recent years. «There aren’t many things in life that can happen in an instant. «Fame may help,» he explained.
«It can also vanish overnight.» When I was 16, 17, and wanting to go out for a walk or a date, I had 12 automobiles following me outside my house. It became aggravating at the time. You only desired to lead a normal life. When something is taken away from you, however, you begin to question yourself and wonder, «Oh, do people no longer care about me?»
Taylor went on to say that for the last ten years, he had avoided going to public venues such as the grocery store and movie theaters. «For years, I didn’t leave my house, or if I did, I wore a hat and sunglasses. Simply terrified. When I was terrified to go out, it built up something inside of me, and I was really anxious to get out.»
Taylor re-established himself in his life after years of living with his parents. «It was necessary for me personally,» he continued, «and I feel so much better today than I have in the last four to five years.» «Five years ago, I would’ve said maybe I wish I didn’t go through that,» the actor replied when asked if he wishes the Twilight fame never occurred. If you ask me right now, I’ll tell you no. Because of what it has taught me, I am content. It has shaped who I am now. «I am grateful.»
Jason offered a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the pair’s sit-down on Twitter ahead of the interview, saying he was «very proud» of Taylor.
«This is the first time I’ve ever had an in-depth conversation regarding my intense celebrity at the age of 16, as well as the joys and hardships that came with it.» «I know your story will assist a lot of people,» Jason remarked.
I’m so proud of this moment Taylor Lautner. First ever in depth sit down about the intense fame at 16 and the joy and struggles that came with it. Your story is powerful and I know it will help many. Thank you @TODAYshow for the platform. Airs tomorrow at 10am on @HodaAndJenna pic.twitter.com/YV83a96dVp
