Taylor Lautner - Taylor Lautner Was 'Outcast' At School

Taylor Lautner was a "bit of an outcast" at school.

The 'Twilight Saga' hunk - who played for his high school football team - admits his budding acting career meant he often missed classes and time with his friends which meant his teen years were more challenging for him than for other students.

He said: "I had a lot of fun in high school, but was I viewed as maybe a bit of an outcast? Sure.

"I was busy and would sometimes have to leave school and shoot a movie and then come back, or I'd miss a week because I'd be doing a television show. That definitely made it more challenging."

Although Taylor was a 'jock' - a term for someone who plays sports at American schools - the actor had many different friends and he didn't limit his social activities.

He told Top of the Pops magazine: "I wasn't the super-popular, hangs-out-with-the-same-crowd, kind of guy. I had friends on the football team, friends on the band team, friends on the drama club, and I liked that."

The actor can be seen reprising his role as werewolf Jacob Black in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' which is in cinemas from November 18.
