"No complaints here."
The Twilight star reacted to his popularity among his ex-girlfriend's fanbase over the weekend, telling PEOPLE at a gala event that the title "sounds like a nice compliment to me," adding, "I will take it."
Lautner and Swift met in 2009, on set of the 2010 romance comedy Valentine's Day, and dated for a few months. Swift's apologetic breakup ballad "Back to December," from her Speak Now album, is believed to be about the relationship.
Lautner told PEOPLE that it was his wife, also named Taylor (yes, really) and a "diehard Swiftie," who informed him that he was the only ex "without a diss track." He added, "So that sounds like a nice thing. I'll take it and run. No complaints here."
"In my mind they're not even exes," Lautner's wife added, noting that Swift is a good friend to the two.
Lautner recently starred opposite Joey King and Presley Cash in Swift's music video for "I Can See You (Taylor's Version)," a vault track from her Speak Now re-release, that debuted over the summer. In July, Lautner, joined by King and Cash, also made a surprise appearance at the Kansas City stop of Swift's Eras tour in celebration of the video release.
"I've been in front of a lot of people before, but I've never been in front of 75,000 Swifties," Lautner recalled of that big night. "And it's a different level of passion. So that was just pretty surreal. Twilight fans are definitely insanely passionate themselves, so I had experienced a taste of that — [but] never 75,000 of them at once."
Swift is currently on the South American leg of her expansive Eras tour, and she'll soon be hitting Asia and Europe next year.
