Taylor & Tay Lautner: You Can’t Please Everyone

What’s it like to be married to someone with your exact name?? Taylor Lautner and his wife, Tay Lautner, open up in this deeply personal and eye-opening episode of MBB!

From Taylor’s whirlwind journey as a global superstar in the Twilight series where he experienced an unprecedented level of stardom, to Tay’s relentless dedication as a nurse during the pandemic, this couple shares their unique experiences with fame, body image, mental health, and love.

Taylor Lautner gets candid about the negative effects of fame that made it difficult for him to leave his house, why he took a pause from the entertainment industry, dating Taylor Swift, the pressures of being a teenage sex symbol, and overcoming body image issues that haunted him for years. He also opens up about being bullied in school for being an actor, his struggles with people-pleasing and perfectionism, the origins of his optimistic nature and sense of discernment, and his insecurities with fame now.

Tay speaks to the life-and-death pressures of nursing and the obsessive compulsive tendencies she thinks it has instilled in her. She also details her struggles with burnout and boundary-setting and pinpointing her actual wants and needs, and the emotional toll of her loved ones' battles with addiction and bipolar disorder.

Together, they explore the dangers of over-compartmentalizing and not allowing yourself to feel full range of emotions, how they balance their relationship despite having different love languages, and what it means to grow and heal together.

Join the Lautner power couple as we break down their mental health journey, their favorite tools for mental wellness, and the most valuable things they’ve learned doing their own successful mental health podcast, The Squeeze!

Theme Song Written, Produced, and Performed by Ed Robertson. Mixed by Kenny Luong.

The Squeeze with Taylor & Tay Lautner
When life gives you lemons, what do you do with them? Over here at The Squeeze—we talk about it—"it" being our mental health and well being. Host Taylor Lautner's (no, not that guy, but she is married to that guy) introduction to mental health was at a young age, witnessing friends and family suffer in ways she couldn't fully understand. She started a nursing career in the peak of the pandemic and has been struggling with her own mental health ever since. Tay is joined co-host, husband Taylor Lautner, in addition to celebrity and expert guests to further the conversation surrounding mental wellness. At the end of the day, we're all pretty similar; even those living in the lime-est of lights can be weighed down by sour lemons. In addition to sharing coping strategies and stories, we hope that above all, this podcast offers the comfort of knowing you are not alone
