The 19-year-old actor - who plays werewolf Jacob Black in the vampire movie franchise - is known for his toned and muscular physique and was delighted when he was able to finally relax his strict diet and exercise regime.
He said: "After the last shirtless scene, it was a huge celebration. I went out, had dessert for the first time in a while and took a few days off from the gym.
"I've always been a healthy eater, so I'm not pigging out, but if I occasionally want an ice cream or something now, I can have it."
Taylor admitted he found it "tough" maintaining his buff physique for the films because it was hard to find the time to go to the gym and eat as often as he needed to.

He explained: "While we were filming it was extremely important for me to maintain it and that was tough.
"I was eating every two hours on set and had people shoving food in my face going, 'Eat, Taylor!'
"Then I had to get my butt in the gym and that's difficult because we were filming 12 to 15 hour days."
