'Twilight's' Lautner still shirtless -- but not as much as co-stars

The end is near! The end of the “Twilight” series, that is, which is what brought “Twilight Saga” star Taylor Lautner to the TODAY Show Plaza Wednesday morning. TODAY’s Ann Curry got right to the heart of the discussion by noting that the actor is shirtless approximately “three minutes” into the movie.

Lautner says he wasn’t shy about doing that; adding “I was lucky in this one, because I’m shirtless a lot less than (co-stars) Rob (Pattinson) and Kristen (Stewart).”

But as he noted, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1” is “different from any of the others,” so fans be warned: “My character grows up in this one and becomes a lot more mature.”

But not so mature that he feels compelled to keep his shirt on. Good to know.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 1” opens in theaters on Nov. 18.
