Taylor Lautner is on Instagram!
Now you can
stalk follow his digital presence as much as your heart desires, and it's already worth it. The Twilight alum already has proven he's going to be a good follow, as his first (and only) video features Adam Sandler and David Spade. In the video, Lautner tells Sandler he wants to announce his membership to the social media site in a big way.
He runs a couple of ideas by Sandler, who poo poos most of them. "I was thinking of doing a backflip, but in slo mo," Lautner pitches. Unfortunately, Sandler already has seen him do that, as well as catch grapes with his mouth (another idea). He also tests out dabbing, but that was met with rejection, too. The Blended star even says he won't make a cameo in Lautner's video...poor guy.
The Cuckoo actor eventually turns to Spade, who also turns him down—until he receives an offer he can't refuse. "I'll give you Taylor Swift's number," Lautner says, clearly bribing the comedian. Only then does Spade agree to participate—and dab. As for how Lautner has the "Style" songstress' number, they dated in 2009 after they met on the set of Valentine's Day.
Lautner teamed up with Spade and Sandler for The Ridiculous 6, a Netflix original movie that faced plenty of criticism ahead of its release. In April 2015, Indian Country Today reported that actors and extras from the Navajo nation walked off the set of Ridiculous 6 because they claimed the film grossly misrepresented Apache culture. They also deemed the jokes racist and insulting toward elders and women.
Netflix released a statement addressing the backlash. "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of—but in on—the joke," a company spokesperson said.
The Ridiculous 6's official synopsis reads: "When his long-lost outlaw father returns, Tommy 'White Knife' Stockburn goes on an adventure-filled journey across the Old West with his five brothers."
Luke Wilson, Jorge Garcia, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz and Danny Trejo also made cameos in the controversial flick.
