Taylor Lautner promotes Bench in the Philippines
Taylor Lautner recently paid a visit to the Philippines, to promote his campaign with Bench clothing.
Whilst in the Philippines for the short time that he was, Taylor done two mall visits to meet his fans! Also, he sat down and talked to Ricky Lo of Philstar Entertainment about his new film, Tracers (2014), clothes and what he learnt from working on Twilight .
So aside from promoting Bench, are you looking forward to doing anything else?
“Besides promoting Bench I’m looking forward to seeing my fans. Tomorrow, I’m doing two mall visits so I’ll be able to see as many fans as possible in my more than 60 hours here.”
Of course, you’re wearing Bench.
“Yes, of course. I love it!”
Ordinarily, what kind of clothes do you prefer?
“I’m pretty simple. Most importantly, I like to be comfortable and I really like jeans and boots and T-shirts. That’s why I like Bench so much. It’s pretty simple; you can dress it up or dress it down, which are nice options.”
If you were to impress a girl, what would you wear from head to foot?
(Laughing) “I would probably do something simple. If I were trying to impress a girl, I wouldn’t get all super dressed because I would look like I was trying too hard. Instead, I would probably wear what I normally would.”
Let’s talk about your career. Was it hard for you to shake off your Twilight character Jacob Black?
“Right, right! It may be hard because so many fans love that character and they love the franchise but I’m okay with it. I mean, I also love that character and the franchise as well. It’s something my fans and I share. But of course, as an actor I want to move on and do different things and I thank the franchise for allowing me to do that. I just wrapped up the movie Tracers.”
You’re doing well as an action star. In one scene in Tracers, you refused a “double” and you did your own stunt by jumping from a bridge in New York. That was pretty risky!
(Laughing again) “Yeah, that was pretty risky! It was an awesome experience, completely different from anything I’ve done before. The script is very character-driven and that’s what attracted me to it. On top of all that, I got to do some awesome stunts.”
What did you learn from the Twilight Saga that you are applying now as an action star?
“Uhm, I think working with all the directors in the Twilight Saga and even my cast mates…you learn different little things from everyone and you apply that to the work that you do later.”
