LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Actor Taylor Lautner said he learned at the 2008 premiere of "Twilight" that U.S. actor Jamie Foxx is a big fan of the vampire series.

People magazine said Saturday that Lautner, who plays a werewolf in "Twilight: New Moon," used a TV talk show appearance this week to describe his 2008 run-in with Foxx.

Talking with comedian George Lopez on "Lopez Tonight" on Thursday, Lautner said the "Any Given Sunday" star was among the droves of "Twilight" fans in attendance at the film's premiere.

"There's tons of fans and we hear all of these high pitch voices and we hear 'Rah, rah, Taylor, Taylor!'" Lautner, 17, said. "All of a sudden I hear this deep voice behind me: 'Taylor, Taylor!' .... And this guy walks up to me and he goes 'Hey ... my daughter is a huge fan, and I'm a huge fan is there any way I can get a picture with you. I'm Jamie Foxx.' I was like, 'Are you kidding me? Can I get a picture with you?'"
