Twilight’s Taylor Lautner Reflects On Twilight Franchise

Taylor Lautner has been known for his role in the Twilight series playing Jacob Black who fought for the heart of Bella Swan. With each movie, the fandom seemed to grow more and more, whether Twi-Hards would camp out for days before the final movie premiered or were responsible for sinking their teeth into ticket sales. But this young actor proves that fame isn’t everything, as Lautner admits that he used to have past “resentment” towards this fantasy-romance franchise.

This American actor was only 12 years old when he made his first big film splash in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl as the superhero lead, and was only 16 years old when he introduced audiences to Jacob Black on the big screen. So, that basically means his whole childhood was spent being eye candy to many young fans mesmerized by him in feature-length goodness. While speaking on Sirius XM, Taylor Lautner admitted the “resentment” he used to have over The Twilight Saga, saying:

Now, only fond memories. But I do think that I also needed the space. I was always incredibly thankful and feel super blessed for what it brought me but maybe there was a little bit of, like, resentment, deep in there, going like ‘I wish I could have experienced this part of normalcy.’ Now, I wouldn’t change it, but I think it needed the growth to get to that place.
