Lily Collins dumped by Taylor Lautner
Lily Collins and Taylor Lautner have split, according to reports.
A source told Us Weekly that the couple split a full week before the red carpet premiere and glittering after party for their new flick Abduction.
"It was a clean break that Taylor initiated," the source told Us Weekly.
"At the Abduction party, it was awkward," continued the source. "They barely said a word to one another."
While the pair never formally confirmed their relationship a co-star did spill that Lautner and Collins were dating, and Taylor waxed poetic on his co-star multiple times including when he told Seventeen magazine that he and Collins had an instant connection.
"You can feel some sort of chemistry or a connection when you are reading a script with someone for the first time," Lautner told the mag. "And that was totally the case with Lily."
Does Lautner have his eye on a new gal pal? Not quite. The source said the actor "wants to be single for a while... so he can properly move on."
All the better to focus on his five year plan to win an Oscar. The fewer distractions the better, right?
The next project for Lily Collins is also professional: She stars in Brothers Grimm: Snow White alongside Julia Roberts. Interestingly, Lautner's Twilight costar Kristen Stewart will star in Snow White and the Huntsman, due for release around the same time.
Which will Lautner watch? "It's tough. I mean, my excuse is they're so different. I can root for them both," he said at the MTV Movie Awards.
"Kristen's going to be cool and edgy and dark. It's gonna be something new for her, and I think that's really exciting."
"Lily's gonna be great too. And a completely different feel."
Perhaps the choice just got a little easier.
