Do you believe it, BFFs? Experts say that Taylor’s buff bud and his savvy movie selection make him way more bankable at the box office than R-Patz!

Get a load of THIS, HollywoodLifers. After seeing Taylor Lautner best Robert Pattinson for two key awards at the Teen Choice Awards August 8 – Choice Male Fantasy actor and Choice Male Hottie - we wondered who was creating more buzz in Hollywood. After speaking to several industry insiders, including agents, directors and a manger, we’ve learned they all feel the same way:  that Taylor, 18, is currently way hotter than fellow Twilight hunk Rob, 24! Can you believe it?

Here’s what the pros say!

#1 Sex sells – and no one is selling his body better than Taylor these days!

Taylor has a much hotter body ( a la a young Mark Wahlberg) and his reputation is that of a sweet guy. Girls love him and guys want to be him Nothing against R-Patz, but he is not exactly rocking the body or the action Ninja moves to compete with Taylor.” – Manager

“Taylor Lautner is way more marketable and bankable than Robert Pattinson because of the hotness factor. Robert is a sweet guy with looks that are comparable to lead singers from ‘80s bands like The Cure, but it’s a small market of girls that will follow him through his career based on those looks alone. Although talented, he will have a harder time racking in the dough in the long run. When you turn to Taylor, though, he has the charm and good looks to go further in his career. Girls flock to the theater solely to see that man without a shirt!” – Director

#2 Action movies usually have more box office mojo than independent films or dramas.

“Taylor’s film choices are better. Sad drama Remember Me or feisty action flick Stretch Armstrong? I know which one – as a straight male – I’d pick!” – Agent

#3 Rob needs to get naked WAY more than he’s doing!

Pattinson doesn’t take his shirt off enough. I think Taylor adds a few more layers to things that make him more marketable – he’s the next Tom Cruise!” – Agent #2

#4 Taylor has more universal appeal.

“Work-wise, Taylor has much more universal appeal than Rob. With his, strong, muscular frame, Taylor can go for a lot more roles that are needed in Hollywood, while Robert will be much more at home in the independent world. Taylor will definitely be more bankable when it comes to big-budget (and thus bigger earning) movies.” – Director

#5 Rob is too broody!

“People want to really feel like they know who these guys are. With Taylor’s outgoing personality, fans may feel more connected to him and follow him more closely. That always adds box office power. If I was going to hire one of them over another, it’s Taylor.” – Blake Freeman, director of Gawd Bless America

#6 Rob is too overexposed at the moment – people are starting to get sick of him!

“For now, Robert Pattinson is overexposed. He’s changing his beard, hairstyle, constantly reinventing himself to stay in the limelight.” – Feature film director

Just for the record: Yes, I aoozpgiled to Isaac for calling him a hack and the like, and I believe we’ve hugged it out in a virtual sense. I could’ve used some tact instead of a sledgehammer to make my point, but hey lessons learned all around

This is the first poll I’ve seen online that Rob is winning (and it’s only by 10%) Def not a run away victory. As for “eye candy” isn’t that what hot is? This poll is about who is “Hottest Twilight Hunk”. Obviously the hunk will be getting all the “eye candy” awards. Sheesh!

Okay, since we are bringing up awards. Taylor won “Hottie” for TCA, Best smile (Hello RPatz cigarette teeth), Red Carpet Style (Always hot), and Actor Fantasy (Which I believe he beat RPatz). Rob was hot in Twilight. I will give you that. However he hasn’t looked hot since. He looks dirty and greasy all the time, while Taylor has that clean cut all american look and that smile is truely million dollar. If you read any review of Eclipse you will see that Taylor killed it in that movie, he was the star beating out RPatz through out the movie. Rob may have more experience, but he is also six years older than Taylor. He had none of the appeal and stardom that Taylor has had at 16, 17, and 18. Taylor is more than just a body and from what I’ve seen he has always had that body even when he was a little kid. He just added a few pounds to what he already had. I think Rob is a great actor too but he definately isn’t better than Taylor. Taylor has the most potential.

Taylor is handsome, seemingly sweet and grounded. There’s no contest here. Taylor is currently filming John Singleton’s Abduction, and will then go on to shine on in Breaking Dawn I and II. Followed by Flex Armstrong. He’s in no need of work. From what I have read he is constantly turning down work because there isn’t enough Taylor to go around.

Go Taylor, I got your back every step of the way. He is so much more appealing, talented, sexy and handsome than Robert, who looks like a homeless person. I’m so glad that Taylor won all those Teen Choice Awards over boring Robert, guess that Karma for all you pathetic Robert fans, you are beyond a joke.

Robert won choice actor for Remember Me, and beat Taylor for choice summer actor for Eclipse, best kiss, and best chemistry. Lets see…ummm….that’s 4 awards. Robert beat Taylor for NM at MTV awards and UK national Movie Awards. Its about time Taylor won for NM since Robert was hardly in it! So get your head out of the sand. Two acting awards are better than one, and Taylor’s other 3 awards are eye candy awards. So what exactly did Taylor win over Robert? Nothing important, that’s for sure.
