TAYLOR Lautner used to be scared of Twilight fans!
The hunky actor — who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the smash hit movie series — feared he’d be torn “to shreds” by over-eager followers of the vampire franchise.
“In Brazil hundreds of fans stormed the hotel Kristen Stewart and I were in. We hid in this little room for 45 minutes waiting for the SWAT team to arrive. We said to each other, ‘What if they get into this room? They’ll tear us to shreds!’” he said.
“I wouldn’t say they’re weird but they’re definitely passionate.
“I was just in Australia at a fan event with a red carpet and there were 4000 fans and I was walking down the line. The fans like to hold out their hands or their arms for you to sign and one arm had a massive tattoo of the wolf pack.”
“The real one, the same exact thing and it was pretty cool. She was like, ‘Can you sign it?’
“I said sure and I signed right underneath it and the next day someone told me that the girl got my signature tattooed right under the wolf pack tattoo. I don’t know whether to say that’s cool or that I feel bad that I signed her arm. But that’s definitely some passion there.”
Lautner, 18, recently met his girlfriend Lily Collins‘ famous father Phil Collins — and the pair reportedly got along like a house on fire.
“Phil’s pretty tough on the guys Lily introduces him to,” a source told America’s Star magazine.
“Taylor was nervous about meeting him, but they got along well.”
Lautner, 18, previously dated country singer Taylor Swift.
Lily and Taylor were first romantically linked in July, when it was reported the 18-year-old Twilight actor had seduced Lily on the set of their movie by “constantly flashing his shirtless six pack,” despite her having a boyfriend.
“Lily told pals that she wasn’t looking to fall in love, but soon realized she had strong romantic feelings, ” a source said at the time.
“Taylor was smitten from day one, but Lily let him know she was in a relationship with a stuntman who was working on a Steven Spielberg movie in New Mexico. When the boyfriend got suspicious because Lily didn’t return calls promptly, he hopped a plane and turned up unannounced to confront her.”
