The actor has locked lips on screen with Universal’s Kristen Stewart, as well as Relativity’s Lily Collins in The Twilight Saga and Abduction respectively. So which of his leading ladies does Lautner think will come out on top in 2012?
 
“It’s tough,” he told E!'s Marc Malkin on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet. “I mean, my excuse is they’re so different. I can root for them both.”

Stewart will star opposite Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen, with Chris Hemsworth to serve as the protector in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Not to be outdone, Relativity nabbed the iconic Julia Roberts for the role of Queen, and Armie Hammer as Collins' leading man.
 
“Kristen’s going to be cool and edgy and dark,” Lautner said of her role in Huntsman. “It’s gonna be something new for her and I think that’s really exciting.”

“I call it an action-drama-thriller-romance, I mean it’s got everything in it,” he said of the film, before teasing an “intense, intense steamy scene” between he and Collins.
 
Lautner can also be seen in Twilight: Breaking Dawn -- Part I when it hits theaters on Nov. 18.
