Taylor Lautner is more than just a werewolf with an amazing pair of abs. He’s also one young Hollywood star who is setting a good example for his fans. If your a Twi-Mom on Team Edward, the following may just make you change alliances-Taylor still lives with his parents, takes out the trash, and enjoys living the calm, suburban life!
How normal is that?
Taylor, who is 18 and loaded and could buy a nice L.A. mansion and party dusk till breaking dawn, lives about 40 minutes from Hollywood with his parents and his sister in a home described as “almost indistinguishable from the others in the neighborhood.” Why not move out and enjoy the life of an A-list star along with all the perks that go with it?
When asked in an upcoming interview in GQ if he was thinking about moving, Taylor responded, “Um, you know, not so much. There’s really no point. I’m so busy. I really haven’t thought about it.”
Is it because he can avoid trouble, paparazzi, and all the ugly, glittery mess that comes with fame? “There’s some of that,” he says. “The thing I love is that my home life hasn’t changed. I still help out with the garbage. I still help out with the lawn.”
He also enjoys his chain restaurants, especially Olive Garden. “Do you like this place?” he asked the reporter when they meet for some bread sticks, adding: “My father turned me on to it.”
But recommending Olive Garden isn’t the only way dad has helped him in the food department. When Taylor was ordered to bulk up for his Twilight role (or else), he had to eat every two hours so his parents would cook him meat and then pack it in a cooler so he could take it in the car with him.
Fame, good looks, and a close relationship with his parents-This is one kid that is on a non-stop track to mega stardom. Let’s hope he stays just as sweet and grounded.
Go Team Jacob!
