Taylor Lautner must be a real Prince Charming — how else to explain the fact that two of his leading ladies have been cast as Snow White in competing projects?
"It's crazy!" Lautner tells MTV of "Twilight" pal Kristen Stewart and "Abduction" co-star Lily Collins headlining separate fairy-tale flicks.
Though Lautner is rumored to be dating Collins, he isn't taking sides over which actress will make the better damsel in distress.
"I'm lucky, because they're completely different Snow Whites, so I feel like I don't have to choose one," he said. "They're completely different stories, and the Snow Whites themselves are totally different."
Indeed, Stewart's version, "Snow White and the Huntsman," will focus on the titular huntsman's efforts to protect Snow White from the Evil Queen (Charlize Theron).
Collins' still-untitled 3-D version, meanwhile, will star Julia Roberts as the queen and "The Social Network's" Armie Hammer as the Prince, and will offer a more trippy take on the classic tale. Director Tarsem Singh tells MTV, "It's actually like if you looked at Gaudi's architecture, based in England, done like a turn-of-the-century Russian film by an Indian guy."
Both Snow White movies will arrive in theaters next year.
