Taylor Lautner was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and grew up in Hudsonville, Michigan.
Lautner was raised Roman Catholic and seems rather devout actually. Allegedly, there is an interview where he preaches the virtues of abstinence. Plus, he’s reportedly drug and alcohol-free.
Lautner hasn’t taken a political stand as of yet. But given his religiosity and the resulting positions on sex and drugs, it’s reasonable to assume he’s probably a conservative. But the various question and answer sites on the internet seem to agree that Lautner considers himself a Democrat.
