“Twilight” star Taylor Lautner showed off his werewolf-level agility with a backflip at a recent “Eras Tour” screening.
Lautner’s wife, also named Taylor Lautner, posted the performance on Saturday on her Instagram Stories.
The clips, later reposted on X, see Lautner expressing his excitement for the screening by doing a full backflip. He sticks an impressive landing with one hand on the floor. Then he rolls forward and stands up before catapulting backwards again and busting out some dance moves.
This isn’t the first time Lautner has backflipped in honor of Swift. At a Kansas City tour stop back in July, Lautner hopped on stage to join Swift. There, he did a spontaneous backflip to celebrate the premiere of “I Can See You,” Swift’s music video starring Lautner as a secret agent alongside Joey King. According to Swift, Lautner performed all the stunts in the video himself — including combat scenes and a backflip or two.
Lautner, who dated Swift more than a decade ago in 2009, is known for being the subject of “Back to December,” Swift’s 2010 melancholy, apologetic song reminiscing about a past relationship. Lautner confirmed that the song was about him in a 2016 Facebook live.
Swift previously told the Kansas City crowd that Lautner had been “a very positive force” in her life during the making of the “Speak Now” album.
“He and his wife have become some of my closest friends, and it’s very convenient because we all share the same first name,” Swift told the stadium audience. (Lautner’s wife is Taylor Dome; the two wed last year.)
Lautner responded with similar sentiments, saying, “I respect you so much. Not just for the singer you are, the songwriter, the performer — but truly for the human you are. You are gracious, humble, kind and I’m honored to know you.”
