London: Actor Taylor Lautner says he fears girls are only interested in him because of his role as werewolf Jacob Black in the 'Twilight' movies.

Lautner, 19, was previously linked to Taylor Swift and his 'Abduction' co-star Lily Collins but says he finds the dating scene tough because he never knows if women want him or Jacob.

"You definitely have to deal with whether girls are interested in me or Jacob. Sometimes it's hard. Time always lets you know what a person is really like.  The fans love the characters and they would love anyone who as playing those characters. I'm just the guy who was able to bring Jacob to life," he said.

Although Lautner and his co-star Robert Pattinson play love rivals in the vampire film franchise but he insists the rivalry between them doesn't spill over in the real life.

"We've been filming together for three or four years and we've all become close. We're great friends and so supportive of one another. It would be a nightmare if there was any rivalry. Having to deal with that for years would be impossible," he added.
