Fans of the Twilight series got a big treat on last night's Jay Leno Show -- especially the ones who are on Team Jacob. Not only did Taylor Lautner share some pretty awesome stories with Jay, he brought an exclusive New Moon clip with him.
Taylor, a.k.a. Jacob Black, arrived dressed in a slim-fitting, pale grey suit and skinny tie, relaxed and genial despite having just returned from a whirlwind trip across Europe.
Of course Twilight mania isn't limited to American soil, so he said he had to deal with screaming fans even when he was in Paris, London, Madrid, Munich and Frankfurt. Speaking of fans, Jay asked Taylor what's been his most shocking, bizarre fan encounter.
"It's so hard to pick one," Lautner said, before sharing a tale of a mother-daughter pair of Team Jacob supporters. Apparently the mother, who he described as being in her mid-40s, was the more fanatical of the two, and when it was her turn to shake hands with Taylor, she told him she was wearing "Team Taylor" panties, and asked if she could take them off so he could sign them "real quick."
When the chilled-out teenager told her mom to cut it out, the mother replied: "Honey, don't worry, that's what we do at these things." Unfortunately for her, the security guards disagreed and hauled her away.
As for the New Moon clip, it was brief, but enough to whet the appetite of fans -- especially those who hope to see a little more of Lautner.
The clip shows a buff, tanned, shirtless Taylor, who leaps up to the bedroom window of Kristen Stewart's character, Bella Swan. In her usual standoffish, grumpy-teenager way, she stands there with her arms crossed. He apologizes for something, but neither Bella nor we know what he's talking about.
To that, Jacob says: "Have you ever had a secret you couldn't tell anyone?" And...scene.
New Moon will hit theaters this Friday.
