“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.
