Taylor Lautner was kicking back in his seat at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards , applauding his “Twilight” co-stars’ win for Best Kiss, when Robert Pattinson bounded down from the stage, abandoning Kristen Stewart at the podium to lay a smooch on Tay-tay’s lips.
The crowd went nuts, Lautner wiped his mouth, and another MTV awards-show moment went down in history. Can the 19-year-old star do it again? At the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, can he possibly top kissing RPattz?
“Oh, I was definitely kissed by,” he clarified to MTV News during the VMAs’ black-carpet pre-show. “It was quite a shocker.”
So, can it be done? Who’s to say? He’s not one to prepare much for awards shows, as he let us know at the Teen Choice Awards a few weeks ago, saying, “It’s really hard to prepare, so it’s kind of like you just show up here, have fun.”
This time around, Lautner is on hand to present an award at the show a few weeks before his new thriller, “Abduction,” hits theaters. Perhaps some of his fellow presenters — like Nicki Minaj, Drake, Joe Jonas and Jared Leto — can assist in the making of a true Video Music Award moment.
For his part, though, Lautner isn’t making any promises. He’ll be proceeding into the Nokia Theatre with caution, his eyes peeled, his lips guarded.
On whether he could top the Movie Awards’ show-stopping moment, he said, “I honestly have no idea. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.”
