Taylor Lautner has built up quite a, um, body of work.

And Savannah Guthrie certainly wasted no time reminding the guy of just that during his appearance on Friday's Today by pulling up several stills from the Twilight flicks that show the actor sans shirt.

"In the finale, Taylor, do you get a shirt? That is the question," Guthrie inquired.

"Of course I do," the actor replied with a laugh.

The "finale," of course, is Breaking Dawn Part 2, and for Lautner, it's hard to believe the movie marks the end of the film franchise.

"It's nuts to me that it's coming to a close, because I remember when we were just beginning, I was saying, man, this is gonna be forever," said Lautner. "And here we are. Those five years have flown by. It's been some of the most amazing years of my life and it's a bummer it's coming to an end."

Later, Guthrie jokingly asked about any negatives stemming from all the attention Twilight has brought him—like, say, hearing loss.

"When I hear the screams that seem to follow you around, it's kind of deafening," the Today cohost remarked.

"Look, if that's the worst downside, then I'm totally good with everything," a smiling Lautner noted.

(The Today show and E! are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)

Later, Lautner followed up his Today appearance with a visit to Live With Kelly and Michael, where, naturally, the whole shirtless thing became a hot topic of discussion.

"It's funny. I had a conversation with the director...and I said, 'Can we maybe try and limit the shirtless scenes just a little bit?'' Lautner recalled. "So I was able to do that, and so, there's only one in this one. But it's a serious one."

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 opens in theaters on Nov. 16.
