Once upon a time, Taylor Lautner and Jamie Lynn Spears were teen actors trying to make it in the entertainment industry. Lautner bounced around such sitcoms as The Bernie Mac Show, while Spears (Britney’s younger sister, but we’ll get to that) played the title role on Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101.
Jamie Lynn’s big sis (who happened to be an international pop phenomenon) tried to play matchmaker but was ultimately unsuccessful. The younger Spears would give birth to her daughter Maddie at age 17, around the time Lautner found serious fame with the Twilight films.
While promoting their new season of Scream Queens, Lautner and America’s Uncle, John Stamos, talked to Billboard about the failure-to-launch courtship.
“Britney tried to fix Taylor up with her sister one time,” Stamos divulged.
“A long time ago,” Lautner clarified.
“I don’t think they went out,” Stamos said.
“We did not go out,” Lautner confirmed.
