Lautner played Jacob Black in “The Twilight Saga” film series, which first debuted in 2008.
“In the moment, it got frustrating because you just wanted to live a normal life,” he said.
When the franchise ended, he said it was also an adjustment.
“But then when that’s taken away from you at all, you start to question yourself and start to be like ‘oh, do people not care about me anymore?’ When it goes away a little bit, you notice it, and that’s the dangerous part because that can mess with your mind,” he said.
Lautner currently stars in football film “Home Team,” which debuts Friday on Netflix.
