For those of us who sometimes worry that our dance moves are somewhat less than suavely smooth, MTV News’ latest interview with Taylor Lautner offers a little bit of sympathetic relief; turns out that just as ordinary citizens sweat their booty-shaking technique before big events like the prom, Taylor was shaking in his booties over his dance scene with Kristen Stewart in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.” Especially terrifying: the discovery that his dance included some unexpected choreography.
“I was extremely nervous,” he admitted. “Especially when they told us there was going to be lifts and stuff. I was like, are you kidding me? Are we on ’Dancing With the Stars’? No!”
Needless to say, we’ll be keeping this interview handy in the event that Taylor ever is on “Dancing With the Stars,” at which point we will play it back for him whilst pointing and laughing. But in the meantime, Taylor admitted that his nerves didn’t keep him from performing admirably when the time came. And according to the actor, the payoff was totally worth it.
“I thought it was going to be a really simple slow dance, which it was in the end,” he said. “And it turned out really well. It’s a very beautiful scene, visually and emotionally.”
We can’t wait to get a gander at Taylor’s moves when the movie hits theaters at midnight tonight! And with all this talk of wedding dances, perhaps we might one day get a behind-the-scenes featurette of the Volturi doing the Electric Slide? Hey, we can dream.
