Lautner: I can't fight the Brits!

Taylor Lautner has joked that he needs to stop fighting Brits - because they are such good challengers.

The Twilight heartthrob, who is a martial arts expert, got to grips with Jason Isaacs in a gruelling scene for Abduction, and tussled with Robert Pattinson in the Twilight Saga films.

"I've had my load of Brits. Maybe I need to take a break, because they seem to be beating me up quite a bit," he quipped.

However, Taylor loved exchanging blows with Jason in their new film, which is out now.

"That was a very long and intense fight scene, and we had gloves on so we were really going at it," he admitted.

"It was awesome. He's a great guy and a lot of fun to hang around with. It's a very long scene so that was a 12-14 hour day of non-stop fighting."

The 19-year-old added: "He was whacking me the whole time. But it was fun. There were no serious injuries, maybe a few bruises the next day."

Taylor has admired Jason for years.

"I have looked up to him for a while, ever since I saw him as the bad guy in The Patriot. I loved him," he said.

"Don't get me wrong, he's done so many roles, but I did love that this was something kind of different for him and we really get to see his humour in this movie as well as different areas."
