After giving Kanye West a piece of his mind and spoofing his famous abs during his hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, “New Moon” star Taylor Lautner still had a little energy left in him to enjoy the “SNL” afterparty.
The 17-year-old actor, along with the night’s musical guest Jon Bon Jovi, hung with the cast of the show at New York hotspot Matsuri. While chilling out with “SNL” stars Andy Samberg and Seth Meyers, Lautner dined on a sirloin steak, according to MTV News sources.
Taylor Swift, Lautner’s rumored girlfriend, was not at the party, despite the fact that she was in town the night before to perform at Z100’s Jingle Ball . Lautner reportedly left the shindig at around 4 a.m., surrounded by bodyguards, while fans waited outside the restaurant to catch a glimpse of the star.
Lautner was the first Twilighter to host the famed comedy show. And when he wasn’t taking a good-natured jab at the Swift romance rumors (much like she did when she hosted the show last month), he was joking about “Twilight” fans and the fact that he is shirtless during much of “New Moon.”
“I took my shirt off a lot — too much, in fact,” Lautner said in his monologue. “Even Matthew McConaughey told me to cool it.”
