Even the most loyal of Twi-hards remembers probably did a double take when they read about Jacob’s packmate Quil imprinting on a 2-year-old. And then we squirmed even more when it hit closer to home and Jacob seemed to forget his romantic love for Bella in favor of an attachment to her newborn baby, Renesmee. We can’t imagine what it was like for Taylor Lautner. Only so much of the werewolf phenomenon can be taken care of by montages. In the end, he feels like he grasped the concept enough to convey his protective, non-icky attachment to the rapidly growing vampire-human girl.
“They did such a good job with that relationship, and it’s such a big part of the movie, and I had to fully understand it,” Taylor told VH1′s Kate Spencer. “It was helpful because we had Stephenie Meyer on set for that movie. I think it comes across great. I think Jacob fans will be happy with that relationship onscreen.”
But really, is Taylor tired of people asking about imprinting — and of co-stars (*cough* Robert Pattinson) teasing him about it?
“No, because I didn’t understand it for a while,” he said. “I asked so many questions about it that I’m sure everybody out there has plenty of questions about it as well, so it’s understandable.”
