After laughing off his kissing scenes with the rising star, he admitted that he actually felt quite comfortable getting romantic with her.
"I mean, I think it depends. It depends on the person and your vibe together, 'cause sometimes it can totally be awkward," he explained. "But if you're in the moment and you are literally living these characters, you forget about everything else, then it's fine. It was totally fine."
Recently, Collins spoke to MTV News about her "Twilight"-hunk co-star and had nothing but praise for the 19-year-old actor. She even teased that, while he's not as shirtless in this film as he is in "The Twilight Saga," there are definitely "some steamy moments in the movie."
She added: "There is romance, but it's also partners-in-crime, we're going through everything together."
Lautner said that while the two were relative strangers when they began shooting the action film, Collins became his rock onscreen. "I didn't know her very well. I had met her a couples times, but she blew me away. She was awesome," he explained. "She's extremely talented. Whenever [my character] Nathan crumbles, she has to always be there to support him. And she was."
So what was it like to play someone other than Jacob Black? "It's a great story, it's a great character, there are a lot of great characters, there's a lot of action, it's fun," Lautner said after debuting the "Abduction" trailer on MTV. "Also, I knew it was going to be challenging, so I was looking forward to that."
Check out everything we've got on "Abduction."
