Taylor Lautner’s six pack abs did not stop Beavis and Butthead from spoofing Twilight on the season premiere of their cartoon show on MTV October 27th, so maybe they are not as impressive as feared by Twilight movie co-star Robert Pattinson? Word is he lusts after Lautner’s abs while noting his pale in comparison to the actor’s on-screen.
Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, and Kristen Stewart are all celebrity teens who have started using their star power wisely to support a variety of charity benefit causes — so we here at GCN are keeping our eyes on their careers. While their humanitarian interests off-screen range from promoting health and fitness to helping runaway teens to earthquake victims in Haiti, their real life days and nights in Hollywood include worrying as much or more about what they look like to keep their careers going. [Kind of a sad thing, really.]
The super star recently confessed he has been on a crazy health and fitness regimen to get abs like Lautner. Why? Because he is older than the teen celeb and thinks maybe, just maybe, fans will be critical of him for being less sexy in Breaking Dawn sex scenes with real life girlfriend Kristen Stewart.
MTV UK reports,
The Twilight actor claims that in a desperate bid to achieve a six-pack like Taylor’s, he used to ‘suck in’ his stomach to try and fake some rock hard abs.
The 25-year old explained: “You also have to worry about how you’re going to look. I had never been so worried about that before but after seeing how much Taylor works out for the movies, I thought, ‘Well, everybody is really going to judge me now’.”
According to the entertainment news magazine, Pattinson says he was constantly trying to trick the camera. By sucking in his stomach like most women do and trying to get his shirtless scenes with Kristen Stewart filmed in flattering angles, he hopes fans will not rip him apart for having a less cut physique.
He continued: “I always tried to think about positions where I could tense the muscles and suck in my belly. So, in this movie, I thought ‘OK, it’s the last [movie]. I’m getting a six-pack,’ and I tried but it’s very hard.”
Regarding his health and fitness routine, Pattinson says that he worked his tail off essentially to get fit for the new Twilight movie Breaking Dawn. After the movie filming wrapped, he also admits he went on a bit of a binge.
“I worked out so hard for six months, so after filming the sex scene, the first thing I thought was ‘Time to eat!’ I ate ice-cream and cake. I took a few days off from working out, that was a true celebration…” said the sex symbol.
But will his efforts to look thin and trim pay off?
Only if the movie rocks and his acting impresses parents and teens. That’s the real test of whether or not Robert Pattinson can beat out Taylor Lautner as a 21st century movie star with machismo.
Sadly, Mike Judge — creator of Beavis and Butthead — had a good point. Kristen Stewart really does resemble a Zombie in Twilight and Robert Pattinson has always been more dull to watch than Taylor Lautner. Speaking purely about the charisma exuded by their Twilight characters on-screen, having the most ripped abs in the world won’t make Edward Cullen’s romance with Bella Swan more interesting unless the star celebs show more of their real life chemistry this year on-screen.
Or, of course, if the boys let their bromance blossom off-screen. Gay rumors about Lautner and Pattinson make huge headlines in the LGBT community.
