If you weren’t a big fan of the wig Taylor had to wear for his role as in Jacob in Twilight and part of New Moon, you weren’t alone. Taylor himself wasn’t too fond of it.
“I would not want that hair,” he told the Boston Globe. “When I looked at myself in the mirror, I couldn’t even recognize myself.”
I couldn’t agree more. I thought he looked like a nasty metal head who’d just rolled out of bed and into a pile of really long head pubes.
Lautner aslo revealed in a recent interview that he wasn’t much of a reader, until he picked up the Twilight books
“As a matter of fact, I was not a book reader at all. The only books I ever read were the ones I was forced to in school. But when I started reading this book series, I fell in love with the characters and started turning the pages one after another. It was crazy. I never thought I could do that. But I love this story. This franchise has everything in it: Romance, obviously, action, suspense. It has a dark side to it.”
As a fan of the series himself, he said he thought it was important to remain faithful to the source material when making New Moon.
“The fans are passionate about the book and all they want is those words on the pages brought up on the screen for them to watch. We want to stay as close to the books as possible.”
New Moon comes out November 20th, as I’m sure you already know. My local movie theater is doing a double feature for the local Twi-hards, showing Twilight at 10:00pm on November 19th, followed by New Moon, shortly after midnight.
I still don’t get all the obsession, but to each his or her own. What are your premier night plans? Any of you fanatics going to see the flick at midnight, or dressing up like the characters? I think a Kristen Stewart / Bella costume would be pretty fun to pull off. Just sleep on your couch for a few days, smoke a few bowls, and show up to the premier looking like you couldn’t give a shit about anything… except sour patch kids.
Everyone gets excited about sour patch kids.
