Taylor Lautner may be an action star, but that doesn’t mean he’s always fearless.

“I am filming in Santa Fe right now and there are so many mice around my house,” the actor, 23, tells PEOPLE. “I go to bed every night afraid that a mouse is going to sleep with me.”

But don’t worry, Lautner still exudes action hero confidence in his new film Tracers.

“I did more stunts in this movie than I think I’ll do in the rest of my career – very dangerous stunts,” he says of working on the film, which also stars Marie Avgeropoulos and is in theaters now.

“I love it. I’m quite a daredevil in real life so this was a perfect movie for me. I definitely spent a lot of time arguing with the producers to allow me to do stuff that I probably shouldn’t have been doing,” he says.
