Life can be a juggling act for Taylor Lautner, especially when it comes to balancing his professional life with his personal life.

But that didn't stop the Twilight star—who's been otherwise lying low lately—from stepping out with ex-girlfriend and Clippers cheerleader Sara Hicks. On Friday, Tay and Sara caught a showing of OVO by Cirque du Soleil under the Big Top on the Santa Monica Pier Friday night.

And the Twi dude sure was obsessed:

Don't really know exactly how Tay's feelin' about Sara this time round, but did you know Taylor is a total Cirque du Soleil groupie?

Not only has he seen Iris: A Journey Through the World of Cinema at the Kodak Theatre more than a half dozen times, but he also went to OVO twice since it's premiere two weekends ago (that's two times in two weeks, people)! Wow. That's a lotta twirling half-nakedness.

As to whether or not Sara and Taylor are getting half naked, who knows?

The pair first dated when they attended Valencia High School together and remained close friends ever since, but now a source says this on-again-off-again couple is most definitely on. Our insider even says Sara-Bear (that's her Clippers nickname) may be going out of town with Lautner and his family for his 20th birthday next month.

Maybe Tay-Tay needed Sara's support (after all, she is a cheerleader!) after news broke that Hasbro's upcoming Stretch Armstrong project was moving ahead without him. Remember, Taylor was slated to star in the movie but no longer can due to "scheduling conflicts."

That or the fact that Abduction totally bombed at the box office.

In any case, it looks like Team Taylor is definitely going to stay tight-lipped about his relationship with Sara. But he's being less subtle about his other love affair—ya know, with Cirque du Soleil!

And who knows, maybe the half-naked circus act will inspire a big screen project soon. We know Taylor has the abs to take that on.
