While speaking on his podcast, The Squeeze with his wife – also called Taylor Lautner - the Twilight star raised the awkward moment.
The actor brought up the subject of Swift when his wife asked him which moment he would go back to if he could.
Lautner then responded: “Probably when I presented the award to Taylor and was unaware that the Kanye [West] thing was not a skit.”
The actor, who was dating Swift at the time, presented the VMA award to Swift before she was interrupted by Kanye West in a now-infamous moment during the ceremony.
However, it has emerged that he thought the whole thing was a planned joke... until he saw Swift’s face.
"I presented the award to her, so I have the award. I took five steps back and was standing five feet behind her. And in the middle of her giving her thank you speech, Kanye jumps up onto the stage,” the 30-year-old said.
"I can barely hear it. I can’t see them. I’m just assuming this whole thing was a practised and rehearsed skit, because why else would Kanye West be jumping on the stage interrupting Taylor Swift? It just didn’t make sense."
"He jumped off. She finished. The second she turned back around and I saw her face for the first time, I was like, ‘Oh. No’.” said the actor.
Later in 2009, the actor reflected on the moment during an appearance on a Saturday Night Live monologue.
“I guess I could have done a little more,” joked the actor while appearing on the show, before adding: “What i really wanted to do that night was this”.
He then proceeded to do Tae Kwon Do to a cardboard cutout of Kanye.
