Taylor Lautner unfazed by Kristen kiss

Taylor Lautner says he wasn't nervous about kissing Kristen Stewart

Taylor Lautner has admitted he wasn't nervous when he had to kiss Kristen Stewart.

The 18-year-old had to lock lips with his Eclipse co-star in the third instalment of the Twilight Saga, in which he reprises his role as werewolf Jacob Black.

"It wasn't nerve-wracking - people think it would be more awkward because Kristen and I are so close - I felt it was easier because we're such good friends," he said.

Taylor reckons it's about time that the two friends snogged after bonding for the past two films.

"It was exciting that Jacob finally had his chance to kiss Bella for the first time," he said.

"He's had to sit back and watch her and Edward kiss for the whole first two movies. Finally he gets in there and has a little bit of action for a moment!" he added.

The actor revealed he had to make use of his honed physique in one scene.

"The only action I had in the entire movie was where I carry Bella through the forest. I was like, 'OK, I'll carry her, she's like 110 pounds, that can't be too hard'," he recalled.

"Twelve hours later, after we'd finished every single angle possible of that scene, my arms were burning. Whoever said acting is not hard work..."

:: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be released on July 9.

Taurus:

Intellectual snobbery could stop you making a good friend. Just because a person doesn't make it obvious it doesn't mean they don't have the necessary knowledge and know how. On the contrary, a newcomer will have some impressive experience. By adopting a friendly attitude you could form a solid working partnership. You'll appreciate their quirky ways and they'll be impressed by your extensive knowledge. It's a match made in heaven. You'll probably have to make the first move.More
