This, in turn, meant that the cast experienced a new level of increased fame almost overnight – which eventually negative effects on some of them.
Taylor revealed last year that her teenage years were affected by her sudden rise to fame, noting that she was often followed “thousands” of screaming fans wherever he would go.
“When I was 16, 17, 18, when I would wake up and try to go for a walk or go on a date and there would be 12 cars waiting in front of my house to follow me wherever I go or show up at an airport or wherever and [there are] thousands of fans are screaming,” he continued Today in January 2022.
“It got frustrating right now because you just wanted to live a normal life,” she continued.
In fact, Taylor revealed that the blatant attention made her afraid to go outside.
“For so many years I didn’t leave my house, or if I did, I wore a hat, sunglasses, and I was just scared,” she said. “He built something in me that, even if I didn’t know, I was afraid to go out. I would really like to go out. So I just didn’t.”
And things got even more complicated for Taylor when the Dusk era began to fade. Despite having complicated feelings about his massive fame, the actor is used to being mobbed by paparazzi and fans. So when it became increasingly rare, he couldn’t challenge its popularity.
“When that is taken away from you at all, you start questioning yourself and you start being like, Oh, people don’t care about me anymore?” he said. “It goes away a little bit. You notice it, and that’s the dangerous part, because it can really mess with your mind.”

Taylor noted that her grueling gym routine had a major impact on her body image.
“When I was 16 and 20 years old in this franchise where my character is known for taking his shirt off every other second, no, I didn’t know that it would affect me or that body image would affect me in the future. ,” he said. “But now, looking back, of course it was, and of course it will be.”
“What happens if you don’t want to see a gym?” he asked, noting that almost immediately after the shot the Dusk movies, he completely started “rebelling” against the gym. “You’re starting to lose the eight-pack. I’m starting to feel more normal,” she added.
