Twilight star has big ideas for his future

Taylor Lautner would love a Hollywood career like his hero Tom Cruise.

The Twilight star, who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the popular vampire series, is keen to get into action films.

‘I do love action movies,’ he explains. ‘But I don’t want to just become an action hero.’

After The Twilight Saga films are complete, Taylor, 18, is set to play a kids’ toy in Stretch Armstrong and will show off his karate skills in Cancun.

‘I consider Tom Cruise a real hero of mine,’ Taylor tells Empire.

‘I’d like to build a career like his doing dramas, action and comedy.’
