Taylor Daniel Lautner was born on the 11th of February 1992 in Grand Rapids, Michigan to parents Daniel and Deborah Lautner. He and his younger sister Makena were raised in the Roman Catholic church community of Hudsonville, Michigan. At the age of six, Lautner was enrolled for his first-ever karate class, and by the time he was seven, he was selected to attend the national karate tournament that was held in Louisville, Kentucky.
While at the tournament, Lautner met Michael Chaturantabut and began training under him. Lautner trained with Chaturantabut for years to come and within that time, he won several junior world championships and made it to a televised karate event that aired on ESPN. Besides his interest in karate, Lautner also participated in baseball, football, and hip-hop dance. His dream however remained to land an opportunity at a career in acting. Under the mentorship of Chaturantabut, Lautner started flying to Los Angeles for auditions. The to and fro movement became overwhelming for him and his family eventually decided to move to Santa Clarita, California. In California, he was enrolled at Valencia High School.
Lautner’s career started small and developed over time. He started off working on small roles in TV and film before graduating to ads and commercials. His first appearance was in the TV film ‘Shadow Fury.’ The role opened him up to further opportunities on ‘My Wife and Kids’ and ‘The Bernie Mac Show.’ Besides acting, Lautner also took on voice-over roles for animated shows Like ‘What’s New Scooby-Doo?’ Lautner’s break-out film was ‘The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl.’ The film tanked among critics but propelled Lautner’s career. Lautner continued to appear in films that received minor success until 2008 when his agent implored him to audition for the role of Jacob Black.
Fortunately, he landed the role and the film gained major success getting his name out there. When creating the sequel for the movie, director Chris Weitz considered recasting for the Jacob Black role. During the time between the two productions, the character should have acquired a larger physical demeanor and not to mention that the role would also be amplified to lead. In an attempt to maintain what could be his biggest role, Lautner weight-trained vigorously and gained 30lbs in muscle. Needless to say, he kept the role and the movie was an even bigger success than the first. The lead trio was constantly interviewed and plastered across magazines. Lautner was especially sexualized and moved up the list on teenage girls’ celebrity crush list.
Lautner has since returned for the third Twilight film and continued on to other projects like ‘Grown Ups 2’ and the comedy ‘Cuckoo.’ He has received 19 awards within the industry and been nominated for several more. Besides his work in film, Lautner is also capable of holding his own on live TV. He has presented at the MTV Video Music Awards and hosted SNL being one of the youngest celebrities to ever host the show.
Lautner is often recognized for his looks and impressive physique and it’s no surprise he has been linked to some of the most beautiful women. Lautner however, seems to have had a thing for co-stars as he has dated Taylor Swift, Lily Collins, and Marie Avgerpolous. It might be safe to say he wouldn’t survive the 9-5, don’t date your co-workers policy.
Seeing how his relationship with fellow celebrities fizzled out fast, Lautner started seeing California-based nurse Taylor Dome. In November of 2021, the pair got engaged. I suppose they are moving along to happy ever after.
