Add Taylor Lautner to the growing list of Hollywood stars who are having to set the record straight on the correct pronunciation of their names.
The “Twilight” actor made the surprise revelation last week while appearing on “The Unplanned Podcast With Matt & Abby” alongside his wife, Tay Dome Lautner.
“It is technically Lowt-ner,” he said. “It is my fault that nobody knows how it’s actually pronounced because I never corrected anybody for decades.”
Despite the clarification, Lautner said he doesn’t mind if fans revert to the pronunciation they’ve grown accustomed to in the years since he’s been acting professionally.
“Just go with whatever. I don’t care,” he quipped. “Laht-ner. Lawt-ner. Lowt-ner. It’s all the same thing.”
The actor has been enjoying a busy summer. Last week, he made a surprise appearance at Taylor Swift’s Kansas City concert, where he demonstrated some impressive gymnastics moves onstage.
