Twilight rivals can relate to each other

Taylor Lautner is glad that Twilight characters Jacob Black and Edward Cullen connect with each other in the new movie.

The werewolf and the vampire, played by Taylor and Robert Pattinson, 24, put their differences aside in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and join forces.

Jacob hated Edward with a passion, but now they are forced to team up,’ says Taylor, 18.

We have a moment where I have to hate and understand him at the same time.

It’s the first moment where we’re able to connect.’

The rivals team up to protect the woman at the centre of their love triangle – Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart).

As much as we hate each other, we kinda respect each other,’ says Taylor, 18. ‘We go: “Let’s put this all aside and fight for Bella.”‘

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has received 17 nominations for the Teen Choice Awards on 8 August.
