BoxOffice: As an actor, how do you make the audience root for Jacob and get invested in his feelings when the outcome of the love triangle is already known?
Taylor: Well, you try and take things one step at a time. When I’m filming New Moon, I’m not thinking about Eclipse. When I’m filming Eclipse, I’m not thinking about Breaking Dawn. We just have to focus on the movie that we’re doing.
BoxOffice: What is it like for your family and friends to see people scream at pictures of you topless?
Taylor: [Laughs] It’s weird. It’s embarrassing for me, and I’m sure it’s awkward for all of them.
BoxOffice: Have you gotten teased about it at family dinners?
Taylor: Not yet, and I’m hoping that doesn’t happen because I’ll start blushing.
BoxOffice: What do you like about playing Jacob?
Taylor: I love Jacob and Bella’s relationship. It’s very different from Edward and Bella’s. Jacob and Bella start off as really good friends. They become best friends—they can tell each other anything, they do whatever together, ride motorcycles. I love that. And then their relationship starts growing into more and more, and you wonder if they’re going to go past friends. I love being able to do that. And work with an amazing actress, Kristen Stewart, and all of the help around us, our director Chris Weitz, the whole crew. It’s a lot of fun.
