Rebel Wilson can remember seeing a wedding picture of her fiance-to-be, Taylor Lautner, for the first time when she was a toddler. “I remember looking at him and being so giddy,” the 18-year-old actress tells Cosmopolitan. But while there was one time when Lautner was a toddler, there was no sign of a future commitment.
It wasn’t until last summer that Wilson, then 16, heard the news that she had fallen in love for the first time. “For a long time I’d been waiting and wanting, but not really knowing if that’s possible,” she says. “Then I had a break from school, and I came in and saw what Taylor’s life is like and thought, Oh my God, this is like a movie.” Wilson didn’t know then that Lautner was in any way involved in the relationship.
When it came time to break the news to her mother, she learned that Lautner was still dating another woman. “My mother was like, ‘I can’t believe you haven’t met him yet,’” Wilson recalls. On the advice of her mother and her therapist, who advised her to wait, she went to see Lautner.
“I don’t know what I would’ve done without her,” Wilson says of her mom. “She taught me how to take my time. And how to be the kind of person who does something that she feels is right.”
When Wilson finally met Lautner, she recalls, “I was just so stunned — you might as well have seen a ghost.”
She’s now a mom to a 13-month-old girl and 8-month-old son, but she says that when she got married, “I never thought about any other men in my life.”
“I don’t think I ever would have said yes to anyone but Taylor, because I just wanted to be with him,” she says
