Wherein the Entertainment Press Participates In Taylor Lautner + Robert Pattinson Homoerotics

Most of you probably haven’t seen Twilight: Eclipse yet, because it opens tomorrow and nobody invited you to a screening, and so you probably consoled yourself by purchasing a Twilight vibrator, but we want to make sure you don’t go in there with any of People‘s false headline pretenses. There was no kissing between Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, MOSTLY BECAUSE WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES DON’T GET ALONG.

Luckily, People‘s magazine cousin Entertainment Weekly wasn’t afraid to go there in discussing “the tent scene”:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: One scene fans have been dying to see takes place in the tent during the snowstorm. Jacob warms up Bella with his body because Edward is cold-blooded and can’t do it himself.
LAUTNER: The tent scene is probably my favorite, because it’s the first time Edward and Jacob are actually able to connect and understand each other.

EW: How many takes did you go through to get that scene?
LAUTNER: Two days originally to film it, and then a full day of reshoots.

EW: Why?
PATTINSON: [The director] wanted it to be more erotic. Seriously.
STEWART: It’s true. In the book there’s a serious sexual tension. As I’m sleeping, Jacob is staring over my vulnerable body, and he’s naked in this f-?-?-ing sleeping bag because you heat up faster that way, and Jacob and Edward are leveling with each other.

EW: Taylor, you and Rob have some pretty serious confrontations in this movie.
LAUTNER: Some of those scenes were pretty hard for me. I think we ruined a couple of takes in front of the house and in the tent. It’s just, I don’t know, I have a hard time looking at him…
STEWART: Ha! “I have such a hard time looking at him”!
LAUTNER: [Laughs] I wasn’t finished. He and I were thisclose to each other — we are literally, like, an inch away — and we’re screaming at each other.
STEWART: And about to kiss…
LAUTNER: A couple of moments it felt like that.

    What is wrong with you people at queerty??? Why are you sterotypeing gays ALL THE TIME! I don’t know any gay peole who watch and like twilight.

  • rolph

    how long before The Bat and The Wolf realize they’re hotter with each other and stop fighting over that sad, depressing, emotionless girl?


    This past weekend SNL repeated the show Taylor hosted. That kid can perform some amazing gymnastic/martial arts moves…..And he has been all over the talk shows promoting the movie. Never really observed him untill this week. Undeniably he sets the gaydar into overdrive……………..

    Calm down, they are only noting the homoerotic subtext which IS there. I just came out of an advanced screening, and I have never seen anything more hilariously hinted at in a tent since brokeback mountain. Im not saying homosexuality is laughable, rather that two “straight” characters fighting over a female could be so obviously INTO each other. I lol’d, the fanfictions were right!

  • KWil

    Thats not going to say that their assumed “heterosexuality” is practically the lynchpins of their career. I’m not seeing these two come out, if ever!

  • Marcus


    Yeah, especially Taylor. He might be in for the long haul or at least he might intend to.

    I see him doing something and Perez, Gawker and ONTD will run the story, though.



    I don’t really think Pattinson is Gay, just that most English guys demeanor insinuates it. Taylor I would guess a yes. He seems like he is on a good career trajectory. There is already talk of him getting 7 million dollars per. At 18 years old! Would be great if he made a bunch ‘o movies set himself up for life and then actually came out in his very early 20’s and then had a successfull career as an open actor early on instead of comming out at the tail end and to try and revive a carcass of career.

    There is a part right previous a skit in a juice store where they show him sipping juice sititng in a way that my 12 year old girl cousin, who loves him so much said “He looks like me doing that!” LOL

  • Bobert

    Saw Taylor at the the today show and Regis and Kelly and he sets off my gaydar into overdrive too…

  • Devon

    If Pattinson were gay I think we’d know by now. I’ve seen/read quite a few interviews with the guy to notice he doesn’t seem to have a brain-mouth filter. If something pops into his head he just blurts it out…If he were in the closet I’m sure he would have let it slip at some point…

  • Trent

    I’m pretty indifferent towards Twilight, I do see the movies because I find them to be hilarious, but Taylor Lautner is just so fucking hot :D I totally swoon for him.

  • PopSnap

    Taylor Lautner will be naked in Eclipse?? Did I read that right?

    Okay, I went from “eh” to “HELL YEAH” about seeing this movie tomorrow with my girlfriends in about thirty seconds.

  • glennmcgahee

    If you wish to see Lautner in light of what he really can do and how talented he is watch “Lava Girl and Sharkboy”! Taylor’s been a stud in the making for a long time. His gymnastic moves as Sharkboy was a treat. I can only imagine how good he has become since I haven’t seen anything he’s done recent. He’s definitely on the team but I can’t blame hime now for keeping it to himself.


    @PopSnap: Stay the fcuk away! He’s mine!! :-p

    @glennmcgahee: Check out the SNL episode he hosted…….He was doing kicks,twirls,turns,and flips that would make ya dizzy………..

  • Sexy Rexy

    Lautner maybe, but not that skinny, pasty Pattinson with his misshapen head and face.
