“It’s tough because sometimes you’ll just be on the Web and things pop up or you get emailed something from a friend,” he tells Parade. “It’s definitely impossible to avoid stuff about me sometimes, but it’s pretty important to try.”
“It’s very rare that things are true about yourself that are on the Internet,” he says. “It’s just sad sometimes. So you definitely want to stay away from it as much as possible.”
Taylor recently finished shooting the fifth installment of the Twilight saga.
As his role required a lot of shirtless scenes that allowed him it to display his abs, the 19-year-old reveals that building his fit body took a lot of work.
“I had people bringing me food and shoving it in my face, saying ‘Eat, Taylor !’ ” he says. “They sort of had to force me. Then I had to get my butt in the gym and that’s difficult because we were filming 12 to 15-hour days.”
That is why when he finished his last shirtless scene, there was a “huge celebration.”
“I went out and had desert for the first time in a while,” he says. “And I took a few days off from the gym.”
