Thanks to his role as Jacob Black in blockbuster franchise The Twilight Saga, Taylor Lautner now has millions of girls ready to faint/throw themselves at his feet, especially when he takes his shirt off. However, in his upcoming movie Abduction he won’t be revealing that much skin and yet the girls will still adore him, says film director John Singleton.
“I've done some stuff that I'm sure all the young ladies will really love, and it's beyond taking his shirt off,” Singleton reveals. “It's about him having a different kind of swag than he does as Jacob. In this movie, he's Nathan Harper and he's a kickass dude in this movie.”
Of course, just because he’s not as skimpily clad as in the vampire films doesn’t mean girls won’t stomp each other just go get a glimpse at their idol. And not just girls – mothers too.
“Taylor's the most famous actor I've ever worked with in my whole career,” Singleton adds. “When we were shooting this movie, we had 500 to 600 girls and their mothers off the set, trying to get on the set, trying to be around, which was cool.”
