Taylor Lautner, “New Moon’s” swoon-inducing werewolf, admits “fans would love anybody who played” his character, Jacob Black. “I’m just lucky to be the one who got the chance,” he tells Teen Vogue magazine in its Young Hollywood issue.

He might not have had that chance were it not for a karate coach. As Lautner tells it, his Hollywood-based karate coach — a “onetime blue Power Ranger,” according to Teen Vogue — told him to give showbiz a shot. Lautner says he grew up participating in Xtreme Martial Arts, a blend of martial arts disciplines and acrobatic routines.

Now he’s a Hollywood heartthrob. “There are 12 cars that camp outside my house,” he says, referring to the paparazzi. “You just have to try not to let it affect you.” Asked by the magazine about his rumored romance with Disney star Selena Gomez, he said, “She’s a great girl.”
