Taylor Lautner has been portraying the role of werewolf Jacob Black in the Twilight Saga for the last three years, and is finally ready to take a brand new role in the action flick Abduction.

However, people are still curious to know what life has been like for the suddenly-uber famous 19-year-old actor, so he sat down with VMAN magazine to talk about his Twilight life and much more.

Taylor opened up about who he "really is" and said:
"If I'm not filming, I'm promoting, and if it wasn't Twilight, it was a different movie, so it got really busy. But yeah, no, I, you know, I hang out with my friends, family, and kind of just - I don't even know. It's like, when I am not filming, it seems like - I don't even know what I do."
Also, Taylor talked a little bit about his pre-Twilight innocence, as he was only 16 when filming started on the franchise.
"I hadn't explored much besides Michigan and California. When I am traveling the world promoting the films I say I am on vacation, but its not really true, I guess - because when I go to a beautiful city I spend the whole time in a hotel room and then I am back on a plane to the next place."
On his Twilight family:
"It was really helpful that all of us were going through the same thing at the same time. I think if we didn't have that sort of relationship it would have been tough. It would have felt pretty lonely. Because when you are filming for these Breaking Dawn movies, we were filming for seven months - and if you're there alone the whole time even with the cast members, like on a day off, or on weekends, you'd go nuts."
On fans obsession:
"Its definitely these characters we are playing. They are in love with Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black. I mean, they feel like they know them. We are just lucky enough to be playing them. But I definitely think its the characters."
