Twilight‘s Taylor Lautner Definitely Lived Up to His Muscle Promise


I haven’t seen Twilight — making me either a good or a bad gay — but I’m vaguely familiar with Taylor Lautner (who plays Jacob Black), who was reportedly thisclose to being banned from the sequel because he was too scrawny. Unless he added more muscle to his little frame, he would be replaced. Producers were pretty mum on the subject, but in this video interview Lautner mentions the “necessity for the character” and how he “guaranteed” he would put on weight. Guess what? Mission accomplished. He puts on a gun show (and displays his washboards) below.

And yes, I know the video is a smidge old. Whatever.

Don’t remember the scrawnier Lautner?

      Probably out of the loop on this one but what exactly was wrong with him before that he had to put on thirty pounds?

      Glad to see they have a gay in their cast. He is out of the closet?

      I enjoyed that modeling clip. Nice peaceful, windy spring/summer day in the country. Windchimes. Cute guy. What’s not to love?

      @zeke: Well….I will say, if he is still in the closet, then I will just have to join him in there….meaning I will sacrific myself to go in the closet and get him out…clothes on or off (perfer off) I will get him out…..its a dirty job by someone has to do it.

      He is a good looking

      @dellisonly: In the sequel his character turns from scrawny teen boy who drives a rabbit to smoldering hot and buff forever young werewolf with a motorbike.

      Hmm, if I’m 17 too, can I get away with thinking the dirty stuff I’m thinking about doing with him?

      Or am I too young, and therefore a little sicko?

      Don’t care, he’s hot, that’s that.

      The Jacob character hits his late teen years and develops abnormally fast in the 2nd book, into a 6′ 7″ muscle machine. It is important to the plot…

      I hope he’s done growing, because if he isn’t his growth will now be stunted. I actually think he’s well spoken

      And heeeeeeere come the teeny-girls and/or lonely housewives who have to leap to the defense of every teen idol with even a hint of homo…

      Remember how they screamed and scratched themselves over the allegations that an N*Syncer was gay? Or a New Kid? Or Doogie? They have to protect their fantasy, no matter how shrill or shallow it makes them.

      Now, I’m not saying Taylor’s gay. He might well be…(lord PLEASE…) but he’s too young for most of us to legally do more than ogle and so far out of our league in general that it really doesn’t matter. Eye candy is eye candy, and well…he’s eye candy. Beyond that, does it really matter if he’s gay or straight?
