Taylor Lautner Talks Being Bullied and Close Bond With Taylor Swift

He says he used to be bullied at school because he was an actor, but wouldn't let go of acting for it is what he loves the most in life.

AceShowbiz - Becoming a famous big screen actor ever since he starred in hit movie "Twilight", Taylor Lautner confesses in an interview with the new issue of Rolling Stone that he used to be bullied at school. "I was never extremely confident. Because I was an actor, when I was in school there was a little bullying going on. Not physical bullying but people making fun of what I do," he reveals.

However, he had a positive determination to keep doing what he likes the most. "I just had to tell myself I can't let this get to me. This is what love to do. And I'm going to continue to do it," he claims. And now that he is lauded by legions of fans all over the world after starring as Jacob Black in "Twilight Saga" film series, Taylor manages to keep his feet on the ground.

"This could have happened to anybody who played Jacob," he says. "I was just lucky enough to be the one that has the opportunity. I'm so grateful. It's 'Twilight'. It's not me personally." The 17-year-old film star then tells Rolling Stone, "Nobody knew what Twilight was going to be. Nobody. We thought we were making it just for passionate fans of the book. People just kept telling Us, 'Oh, yeah, the movie is going to do so good.' And we were like, 'All right, whatever. We'll see.' But when the movie came out, I was just blown away. That's when I realized, 'Boy, what am I getting myself into?' "

Telling all about his acting career, Taylor however plays it coy when it comes to talking about his love life. When asked if he indeed is dating rumored girlfriend Taylor Swift, he teases "possibly", before then gushing that when doing upcoming drama film "Valentine's Day" they "got along great." He adds, "We instantly clicked. And she's - she's an amazing girl. Aside from being beautiful, she's extremely funny, charismatic and fun to be around, so we definitely got along. We're close."
