Former Twilight star Taylor Lautner has recently talked about his career-changing role in Grown Up 2, during the Summer of Sony press conference in Cancun. The former werewolf admitted that he immensely enjoyed hanging out with Adam Sandler’s comedic superteam for the sequel, and that it was a more laughter-filled set compared to Twilight.
“I was very intimidated… But, I mean, it’s why I wanted to do it. I mean, these guys and Salma [Hayek], they’re the best at what they do and it was a huge learning experience for me. I mean, it’s an absolute blast. The set is unlike anything else I’ve ever been on. We don’t laugh this much on the Twilight sets.”
Sandler also commented on Lautner’s Twilight fame:
“We all loved [Lautner] and, you know, just like anybody, we were a little intimidated to meet old Taylor, too, ‘cause the sound he brings with him. Wherever he shows up there’s a giant crowd of high-pitched screaming and happiness.”
“We thought they were protesters for the first two days,” deadpanned co-star David Spade.
