Taylor Lautner says it "would be a bummer" if he was guarded all the time.
The Twilight actor's life has changed a great deal since he won the role of werewolf Jacob Black in the vampire franchise. Now it's drawing to the end with the release of the last instalment Breaking Dawn - Part 2, Taylor has reflected on his life.
"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," he told Look magazine.
The 20-year-old hunk is currently single but has previously dated Taylor Swift. He knows he has a lot to learn about love and doesn't pretend to have all the answers, although he hopes to meet his perfect partner at some point in the future.
"I'm still figuring that one out," he replied, when asked if he believes in love at first sight. "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 in that or not!"
