Taylor Lautner may be an action star, but that doesn’t mean he’s always fearless.
“I am filming in Santa Fe right now and there are so many mice around my house,” the actor, 23, tells PEOPLE. “I go to bed every night afraid that a mouse is going to sleep with me.”
But don’t worry, Lautner still exudes action hero confidence in his new film Tracers.
“I did more stunts in this movie than I think I’ll do in the rest of my career – very dangerous stunts,” he says of working on the film, which also stars Marie Avgeropoulos and is in theaters now.
Someone’s trading in fangs for other supernatural gifts!
E! News has exclusively learned that Twilight star Judith Shekoni has joined the cast of Heroes Reborn.
Shekoni has landed a series regular role in the rebooted event series, although details of who she’ll be playing are being kept under wraps at this time…just like every other new character joining the show.
The British actress is best known for her role in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 as Zafrina, the leader of the Amazonian vampires. She also recently guest starred on an episode of Backstrom.
Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander are engaged!
The Twilight star popped the question to the Thor actress Monday in a romantic proposal at the top of one of New York City’s famed landmarks, reps for both confirmed to PEOPLE exclusively.
The 41-year-old actor proposed to Alexander, 31, at the top of the Empire State Building while their work schedules overlapped in N.Y.C.
The couple, who both worked on the medical comedy-drama Nurse Jackie, were first linked in November 2012.
At long last, American audiences will soon be able to see Clouds of Sils Maria, the sexy showbiz drama that won Kristen Stewart so much acclaim after it opened in Europe during the recent awards season. Stewart plays the personal assistant to a famous but aging movie star (Juliette Binoche), who agrees to star in a revival of the play that made her famous. However, this time around, 20 years later, she’s playing the elder female character who is driven to suicide by a young female lover, while Hollywood’s brash new ingenue (Chloë Grace Moretz) slips into the younger star-making role.
Directed by Olivier Assayas (Carlos), Sils Maria was nominated for six César Awards—the French Academy Awards—and Stewart became the first American actress even to win a César for her supporting performance. Her ever-loyal character finds her professional and personal relationship to her boss complicated by her admiration for the young Hollywood starlet. In this scene from the film, she explains the magnitude of the ingenue’s stardom—which is amplified by the multitude of pre-teens who gobble up details of her personal life—to her unimpressed boss. The irony is pretty thick, coming from Stewart, and deftly delivered.
The Clouds of Sils Maria opens in the U.S. on April 10.
EXCLUSIVE: Woody Allen has begun casting his 2015 feature film, and he has set Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart to lead the ensemble, I’m told. No comment from the Allen camp. As usual, the film is untitled and there are no plot details, and it’s being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, his usual collaborators. Allen might be the one director who, when he courts talent, doesn’t really show them a script. Everybody wants to work with him and they consider themselves lucky to be asked and if they’re available, they say yes almost always.
Allen’s next release, Irrational Man, stars Emma stone and Joaquin Phoenix and it will be released by Sony Pictures Classics July 24th. Eisenberg and Willis are repped by CAA, Stewart is repped by Gersh.

David Cronenberg specializes in psychological horror, so it’s no surprise that his skewering of Hollywood in Maps to the Stars is as disturbing as any film he’s ever made. Written by novelist Bruce Wagner, Maps tells the story of the scarred Weiss family—most famous because of son Benjie (Evan Bird), a Culkin-like star of the hit comedy Bad Babysitter who’s growing uncomfortably comfortable with his growing clout while he simultaneously crashes in to puberty. His chain-smoking mother (Olivia Williams) plots his next career move, while his father (John Cusack) is a renowned TV psychologist with famous clients. One of them is the aging actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), who is obsessed with starring in the remake of her famous mother’s greatest film.
Any sense of serenity is disturbed when Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in L.A. on a bus from Florida. Sweet but awkward, with severe burns on her body, she befriends her limo driver (Rob Pattinson), expresses an interest in tracking down the Weisses, and finagles a job as Havana’s assistant based on a recommendation from Carrie Fisher. Hollywood is a small, small world. Practically incestuous.
