The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 actor suggested that he loves interacting with gay supporters because they're always up for a hug.
"Oh, they're the best. I love them. When I meet gay fans out and about, they're so great to talk to - and I'm big on hugging, because I'm from the Midwest," he told The Advocate.
"They're just so energetic and loving. I'm proud to have those fans, and their support means a lot to me. I don't want just girls coming to my movies; I want guys to come too."
