Negativity has no imprint on Taylor Lautner.
The Twilight alum didn’t hold back when he confronted criticism over his appearance that recently surfaced on Instagram. In fact, Taylor even reposted some of the hurtful remarks, including comments saying that he “did not age well,” as a way to open a dialogue about mental health.
“If this was 10 years ago, five years ago, maybe even two, three years ago, that really would have got under my skin,” he said in a May 22 video. “It would have caused me to want to just go in a hole and not go outside.”
However, as the 31-year-old noted, he’s now “in a different place” and is no longer in an “unhealthy position” where he focuses on the “wrong things.”
“You find value where you put it,” Taylor explained. “And if you put your value in what other people think of you, that’s how you’re going to feel. But if you put your value in you knowing who you are, what’s important to you, what you love, that kind of stuff won’t get to you.”
