Taylor Lautner on fans, fame and cars in interview with GQ

Taylor Lautner suits up for the October/November issue of GQ Australia, on sale October 10.

The 19-year-old heartthrob talks about how he deals with fame and meeting fans.

“I wouldn’t say I get upset about it,” he says. “I asked for this. It gets frustrating. But during that frustration you say, ‘OK. Why am I frustrated? I’m doing what I love.’ But sometimes you really just want to go do whatever you want to do.”

On meeting with fans, he confides: “It comes down to what kind of mood you’re in. You have to make a decision before you go out: are you willing to sign autographs and take pictures, say hello and meet new people?”

But being an international star can have its advantages: Taylor , a big car fan has recently purchased the latest SLS AMG Mercedes-Benz model.

“As you know, I’ve been driving the same car [a BMW 5 series] for the past four years. But I’ve always been a huge car fan. And I would always go to dealerships and drool. And I definitely always had my eye on this car. And it was a long process before I even considered getting a car like that. It’s a childhood dream.”
