The 20-year-old Lautner, who plays a werewolf in the film franchise, was only a pup himself when the first "Twilight" movie came out in 2008. After filmmakers questioned if he would be able to play a full-fledged werewolf in the sequel, Lautner famously gained 30 pounds of muscle. He ditched the junk food while doubling his intake of calories and hit the gym four to five days a week and secured the gig for good!
Lautner, who's managed to maintain his buff bod, was all smiles at the event where an estimated 2,000 Twi-hards (most of them human) camped out for days in advance. "It's nuts to me that it's coming to a close, because I remember when we were just beginning, I was saying, 'Man, this is gonna be forever,'" Lautner told MTV. "And here we are. Those five years have flown by. It's been some of the most amazing years of my life and it's a bummer it's coming to an end."
We know more than a few people who would agree with that!
