Taylor Lautner barely remembered his brief cameo on The Mickey Mouse Club years ago; thankfully, Jay Leno was happy to remind him.
The gorgeous New Moon star, appearing on The Jay Leno Show Monday, watched as Leno played a clip of a young Lautner as a Mouseketeer on Mickey Mouse club, as Jessica Simpson led the group in singing their trademark song.
“I have no idea,” the embarrassed 17-year-old told Leno. “I was singing a song and waving to the camera.”
Lautner isn’t the only show biz heavyweight that donned the mouse ears en route to bigger and better things: Other ex-Mouseketeers of note include Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.
In related news, only three days until Taylor, RPattz and the gang return for New Moon, which hits theaters Nov. 20.
