Taylor Lautner on how to freak out an insurance company [Video]

Taylor Lautner at the Teen Choice Awards

Taylor Lautner's most recent film may have swept the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, but he had something decidedly non-"Twilight" on his mind on the red carpet.

That would be "Abduction," the young star's first major movie in which he doesn't play a werewolf, out next month. In the action film, the 19-year-old plays a man attempting to find out his true identity after seeing his image on a missing-persons website -- an adventure that lends itself to some pretty intense stunts, the actor said.

"I slide down this huge glass awning to an escalator, and I actually did that all myself," Lautner told E! News' Marc Malkin outside the Gibson Amphitheater before heading inside, where he'd named choice male actor for his role in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."

"The insurance company was freaking out the whole movie because every single day I'd show up and the question would be, 'I'm doing all my stunts, right?' And 99% of the time, the answer was 'yes,' which was great. But, yeah, I got a few bruises. But nothing too bad."

As for the fans lining the carpet trying to catch a glimpse of him Sunday night, Lautner insisted he was still not accustomed to the fanfare.

"I don't think I ever get used to it," he said, smiling. "It's always different in a way and so surreal."

Comic-Con: Kristen Stewart on mothering Renesmee in 'Breaking Dawn'

Kristen Stewart

After spending the first three "Twilight Saga" films fighting to be with her vampire beloved, Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan character confronts a new challenge in the two-part "Breaking Dawn" series conclusion: motherhood.

Plenty of ink has already been shed — and please stop reading now if you haven't read any of that ink and want to be surprised — on Swan's controversial conception, pregnancy and delivery of Renesmee with Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen character, but Thursday at Comic-Con 2011, Stewart got specific about bringing it all to the big screen.

"We had Mackenzie Foy, who's an amazing little kid, an incredible kid, smarter than me," Stewart said of the actress playing her on-screen daughter.

Since the little darling is half-human, half-vampire, she ages rather quickly in the film, requiring several actors (and even a robot) to step in along the way.

"To see little Chucky from 'Child's Play' ... " Pattinson joked of an animatronic baby used for a scene in which Bella holds her offspring for the first time.

"It had hair, and it's a newborn baby," Stewart said. "I know that's in the book, and you can imagine how cool that would be."

For the ages between the Chucky stage and a fully realized Foy, some of the wee actors couldn't seem to get it right.

"There was one kid who was supposed to run to Billy Burke [who plays Bella's father, Charlie], but she kept running into a wall," director Bill Condon said. "She was so nervous."

We can see Twi-fever on the horizon: "Breaking Dawn" has landed at Comic-Con.

The vampire franchise and its stars, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, descended on San Diego's annual comic convention Thursday for a panel discussion about the first part of the series' epic conclusion.

In a loose-fitting white shirt and black bra, Stewart was flanked by her male costars answering burning questions about fan-favorite plot points — like a gory birth scene featuring her and Pattinson.

"I think the birth scene...for a fantasy scene that has kind of a youngish audience, it goes very far," Pattinson said according to HitFix. The actor labels the scene "hardcore" but insists "there was no other way to do it."

Stewart seems in a reflective place about the films, ones that have catapulted the 21-year-old to stardom.

"I've been building up to these moments for four years. I was 17 when I started doing this movie," she said.

As for the standard behind-the-scenes fun facts, Pattinson dropped this gem about Stewart's downtime obsession: cooking shows.

"Kristen literally only watches the Cooking Channel. And especially on set, it's bizarre. She has a TV in her trailer, and it's always on. It's her only diva-ish behavior," said Pattinson.

"And you all reap the benefits," Stewart shot back.

Taylor Lautner builds it — and locked-out NFL players come to play [Video]


Taylor Lautner, superhero? Hey, anyone who delivers football in the middle of summer — not to mention in the middle of the NFL lockout — is a superhero as far as the Ministry is concerned.

Joined by NFL players including Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis, Steve Smith, Dwight Freeney and DeSean Jackson, Lautner has taken on the Kevin Costner role in a "Funny or Die" remake of 1989's baseball-themed "Field of Dreams," inviting "ghost" players into his Iowa cornfield out of a love of the game. Inviting them into his Iowa cornfield, his Iowa TV room and his Iowa marriage, actually.

Make sure to watch through to the end. If you've watched "Field of Dreams" a time or two, the cameos just might knock you out.

Emma Watson, who saw best-kiss snub coming, debuts 'Deathly Hallows' clip [Video]

Emma Watson gets snubbed, misses Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's kiss and debuts exclusive 'Harry Potter' clip at MTV Movie Awards

Emma Watson may have been bested by Kristen Stewart and fellow Brits Robert Pattinson and Tom Felton at the MTV Movie Awards, but "The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2" star said she saw the best-kiss snub coming — and revealed that she can be insecure when it comes to dating because of her fame.

"I mean, I was really up against it. Kristen had two kisses, and Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman making out," Watson told MTV News. "I mean, I couldn't really compete!"

Though "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1" was the third most-nominated film after "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" and "Inception," chances that the wizarding franchise would beat the vampire juggernaut were slim. Maybe that's why the 21-year-old face of Lancome hit the award show sans costars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint?

However, she brought a sneak peak of the film instead, and Potter fans have already vowed to beat the Twi-hards next year. Watch the trailer below.

After presenting the clip, wearing a curve-hugging little white dress by Marchesa and revealing that Hermione Granger does in fact have a booty, the actress slipped backstage and missed one of the most talked-about moments of the night: Pattinson and Taylor Lautner's lip-lock following the announcement of best kiss.

"I was like, 'Damn!' " Watson said. "I was still backstage, so I missed it. But, I mean, yeah, good on them!"

But the actress, nominated for her own lip-lock with Radcliffe, has admitted that she worries when she doesn't get action off-screen.

"I ask my friends, ''Why hasn't X called me? Why doesn't anyone ever pursue me?'" she told the Sunday Times' Style Magazine. "My friends tell me, 'Probably because they're intimidated.' It must be the fame wall. It must be the circus that goes around me."

The currently single star, who has previously dated financier Jay Barrymore and male model George Craig, chalks up her unlucky-in-love track record to her personality. 

"I'm this very weird mix. In some senses, I feel as if I'm 100 years old. In others, I still feel incredibly young, very naive and as if I haven't seen much of the world at all."

Poor, sweet Emma. Maybe she should consider taking that mini-dress for another spin?

'Breaking Dawn' trailer: Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and a wedding invitation


Edward and Bella are getting married and everyone is invited -- at least invited to watch "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" trailer, in which usual suspects Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner return for high drama, death matches and a Brazilian honeymoon.

Breaking Dawn trailer features an invitation to Edward and Bella's weddingThe trailer for the first part of "Breaking Dawn" teases with the ominous arrival of a wedding invitation trumpeting the union of Pattinson's Edward and Stewart's Bella, which no one seems that happy about.

Lautner's Jacob immediately goes shirtless and morphs to werewolf form while Michael Sheen's Aro looks pretty devious and Billy Burke, who plays Bella's father, can only ponder the correspondence over a can of beer.

Check out the full trailer above for a first look at Stewart decked out as a bride, some onscreen affection from KStew and RPattz, and the first rumblings of a very unexpected (and life-changing) bun in the oven.

Taylor Swift debuts ‘Story of Us’ video [Poll]


Taylor Swift launched her new "Story of Us" video on MTV on Tuesday night, sparking fresh gossip over who inspired the love song. Swift, who famously wrote "Forever & Always" about ex Joe Jonas, confessed the song is definitely about a former flame.

"Any time I'm onstage or watching the music video, the first thing that comes into my mind is the person I wrote the song about," she told MTV. "It's like the first thing that you think of is the moment that inspired the song, which is that excruciating, awful moment when you run into an ex for the first time."

Could it be John Mayer, Taylor Lautner or even Lucas Till? So far the country star is mum about whom the "Story" is based on, but will offer a few details. "Afterward, I just felt so empty, like we were both fighting this silent war of pretending we didn't care that the other was there," she said. "And I went home, and I wrote this song about it."

The "Story of Us," off her "Speak Now" album, captures the spirit of her awards show encounter, but in a different setting. In the video the couple falls in and out of love in the Vanderbilt University library. Looking especially preppy in her Ivy League get-up, Swift turns up the on-screen angst -- big time.

Whom do you think the video is about?

Taylor Lautner in 'Abduction': Lily Collins and Lautner's abs star in the trailer [Video]

Taylor Lautner wants you to have a happy Friday, or at least that's what the Ministry has decided — why else would he deliver his ab-tastic trailer for "Abduction" so close to the weekend?

The clip hit the Internet on Thursday, offering a first look at Lautner's post-"Twilight" chances for an action-hero career.

And they're none too shabby. Director John Singleton is clearly smitten with Lautner, sending him crashing through glass, weaving through steel beams and flying in car chases with the greatest of ease. 

His supporting cast is substantial as well, including the likes of rumored love Lily Collins (is anyone else obsessed with her eyebrows?), Maria Bello, Alfred Molina and a no-nonsense Sigourney Weaver

Check out Tay-Tay striking out on his own in the clip above.
