London - Taylor Lautner is “careful” about who he dates.

The Twilight actor - who is best known for playing werewolf Jacob Black in the popular vampire franchise - is more “guarded” now he famous worldwide and he gets paranoid that women are only interested in him because of his wealth and status.

Taylor said: “I do have to be more careful. I would be lying if I said that I don't guard myself more than I used to, but I don't want to be too guarded.

“If you have so many walls up that you can't even make new friends or find new relationships. That would be a bummer.”

The 20-year-old heartthrob - who has previously been in relationships with his Abduction co-star Lily Collins and country singer Taylor Swift - is still unsure as to whether or not he believes in love at first sight but he's sure he will understand more about romance as he gets older.

Taylor added in a magazine interview: “I'm still figuring that one out. I go back and forth on that.

“Sometimes I say I do and sometimes I'm not sure. I definitely think I need a few more years under my belt to fully know if I believe that or not.

“I do enjoy romance. There's always some sort of love story in every movie, but the roles I'm working on now aren't super-romantic so I'm excited about that. It will be different for me, after this romance saga.” - Bang Showbiz
