The 18-year-old actor - who is best known for playing werewolf Jacob Black in the `Twilight Saga` - admits he is still expected to carry out domestic tasks in the home, despite his celebrity status.
He said: "I help out with the lawn, garbage, dishes".
Even when he is away filming, Taylor`s parents don`t let him off his duties when he returns to the family home.
He joked: "When I come back, I have extra mowing to do."
However, the actor insists he loves his home life and wants to retain normality for "as long as possible".
He added to `The Today Show` presenter Matt Lauer: "It`s very important to me. I describe it as I live two different lives. I have this life and do what I love to do, but I also have the same exact life as before and nothing has changed."
Taylor recently admitted he didn`t think he could be in the `Twilight` movies if he didn`t get on with his co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
He said: "The great thing about this series is how the whole cast is so close. It would be a nightmare if we weren`t. It would be impossible to make this series because the characters are so tight. We`re really thankful that we all get along so well."
