THE FANS HAVE SPOKEN: Forget Taylor Lautner – You’re In Love With Robert Pattinson!

You were all up in arms over our post saying Taylor Lautner was the bigger box office draw in Hollywood – and we have your comments to prove it!

All I can say is…WOW. After posting our story on Robert Pattinson vs. Taylor Lautner yesterday, some of you were downright furious to hear that Hollywood industry insiders – including agents, directors and a manger – considered Taylor, 18, to be the hottest Twilight hunk in Hollywood. Not only are you furious, but you think the pros are WRONG: a whopping 61% of you voted for Rob, 24, over Tay-Tay!

Here are some of your KEY COMMENTS on the matter…I guess all there’s really left for me to say is….R-Patz 4-Eva?

TEAM EDWARD (R-PATZ)

Abs Don’t Make the Man Good try but despite this article trying to make all women out to be materialistic horn dogs who cant see past a six pack, that isnt how it works. I dont want a boy, I want a man. And while Tay Tay is great for the tweens and teen crowd just like High School Musical was let’s be real. Rob has much more appeal and to a broader audience. Tweens, teens, young adults, and older women love Rob. Besides, if I wanted to see a great stomach, I would look at the new guy on True Blood. Now THAT is a body for a werewolf. Even better, just look at Kellan Lutz who is an actual man and is past puberty. Tay Tay may make the little girls swoon but Robert Pattinson is like Johnny Depp and George Clooney. He has an appeal that cant be taught, either you have it or dont and Tay Tay doesnt have it. Without the abs, Tay Tay is nothing and Rob could easily be shirtless in Breaking Dawn…what would Summit use to market Tay Tay then?

Debbie Ya he is if your a girl at the ages of 7-16 hes a little girls BOY TOY. But if you want to talk about a real MAN then you have Robert Pattinson who has the harts of the 20s and up HE is ONE sexy MAN inside and out Hes not a little boy toy like Taylor is Taylor has a ways to go before that Let the kiddies have Taylor and leave Rob for grown ups SEXY all the way YEP thats Rob.

TEAM JACOB (TAYLOR)

Sarah Even though I am a Rob fan I completely agree that Taylor is the more marketable of the two…
I think the key differnce is that Taylor may well become a big hollywood star (which we all know can have a limited shelf life)…versus Rob who wants to grow as an ACTOR, and who will continue to choose character driven, indie, period pieces, rather than the big STAR driven commercial vehicle…
Taylor may well end up with the higher salary and the celebrity profile, while Rob fades into obscurity doing films that don’t appeal to a massive audience but I think of the two I know which one is more likely to end up doing something that is Oscar worthy !
Stormy C’mon People.They are both good looking young guys who appeal to totally different types of women of all ages. Rob is tall and willowy and enigmatic,Taylor is young and fit and healthy,and exudes wholesomeness. Taylor is my choice but Rob is gorgeous in a different way. They will go in totally different directions film wise,I think Taylor will have a greater range of genres to choose from, where as Rob is perhaps more limited. I can see Taylor doing anything from action, drama, romance, comedy, he’s a lot more than a nice arrangement of muscles,its just that people can’t see past that yet,cause he doesn’t have enough material out there yet.He is only 18! Rob I can see doing historical drama,romance,indie,type movies where he will exell.They’re salt and pepper, great together and on their own.End off.

*** MY PERSONAL FAVORITE KEY COMMENT

Fan Pattinson needs to strike a balance of big budget films and small budget productions. No actor can focus on just one or the other. Eventually if you dont do some big budgets the smaller indie roles dry up too. Its a fine line.
I also think Rob tearing himself down in articles all the time doesnt help. People end up believing he;s a bit of a wet blanket/wus and cant see him in a more manly role. Not havign a pr team doesnt always help. Yes it makes him seem like a free spirit but it also means a lot of rubbish gets stuck to his name that doesnt get unpicked. Al big actors actually have pr reps to use the press to their advantage. The audience isnt as sophisticated as Rob thinks it is. A lot do believe the nonsense written about him. I dont think a do nothing strategy is working.
Its not a matter of taking on hulk/Thor type roles but he does need to do a few more manly roles. Its bizarre that the camper gayer actors end up playing these more manly roles. Rob is far more ruggid than guys like Lautner and he needs to show that to a wider audience. Even Di Caprio knows he has to do some films with action scenes.
I hope he doesnt shy away from big budget films in future. if he does those indie roles will dry up.

This site changes it’s stance so much it’s making me DIZZY!!! Didn’t you just do a bunch of stories about how hot Taylor is and how much Rob sucks? And now you’re totally flopping? You’re lucky people on the internet are CRAZY obsessed with Rob and Taylor so you keep getting comments and views.

Teens are taylor for the most part.

Sorry but I do think Lautner has more staying power then Pattinson. He’s been in the industry longer and frankly, he’s a better actor. I know people love Pattinson but it’s not like he’s a stellar actor. He’s not. He is hot now and thats when movie snap up actors like that. Regardless of skills, they know it will sell tickets. I dont think Lautners abes have anything to do with him making it. This is all based on teen fans and all. It’s kinda stupid. You should base it on whos the better actor, not who wins in a “opinion” contest. I dont even care about Twilight but just based on acting skills alone Lautner is more skilled. Hell, neither may make it longterm.

Taylor Lautner has much more staying power, and he will be a much bigger star. Who even cares about RP anymore? Not me. But Tay is just getting started, plus hes young he has much more time to make movies, Rob will be pushing 30 soon, how long will the cougars follow him then? lol;D these days in hollywood you only have a limited amount of time until people get bored with you

So it would be if Rob’s popularity would be based only of physical appeal

But he is much more than just hot body.

You don’t have to wait a year and 4 months. Rob’s movie, Water for Elephants, will be release April 15,2011. If you are a Robert fan, you have to go see it. If its only Edward you like, well I guess it will be 1 year and 4 months. WFE was a fantastic book, and I hope will be a great movie. It also stars Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz, and Hal Holbrook. Ironically, Robert plays the role of Jacob.(His room mate in college is named Edward)

this is all pr(his team) TL didn’t get the bump from the tca. so the pr folks bought them some air time by throwning R-patz under the bus b/c TL can’t create or maintain a his own buzz. for real shouldn’t this article really be about him but guess what the guy as nice as he seems is just boring. watching paint dry would be a joy after 5mins of meattpatty stories. As far looks they both look good but height….hm, well you know.

yes, Valentine’s day is huge compared to Remember me boxiffice wise and production cost. Shall we include promotional cost, too? Yes, op kors __BUT my butt the big Q is who carried who? Did Pattinson carry Remember Me? He sure did! Is he reponsible for the 80M+ revenue, worldwide? Yes he is! As one of the producers of the film, I think he did a little jig and hop on his way to his bank. Note that he earned 17 million last year, and a huge part of that is believed to have come from RM. For Valentines day. Did Taylor carry the film? No! Nada! Is he responsible for its 300+ revenue? No! Take note that Valentine’s Day has more blockbuster stars(you can actually make a paragraph out of it) than its cousin Love Actually, but have a similar result in the box office.

Robs fans are always saying hes more popular, but i’ll bet you Taylors fans are DEDICATED when it matters – at the box office. I bet Taylor ultimately sells more tickets than Rob. Lets compare the grosses of their movies in a few years. then we’ll know for sure who has staying power in Hollywood and who has box office appeal

There’s enough room in Hollywood for both of these guys. They play to different fan bases. Taylor, the teeny boppers who love nice abs, and Rob, who appeals to women of all ages. But seriously, there’s no way that Taylor can be called sexier than Rob. He’s a beautiful guy, whereas Taylor’s cute in his own way.I think that you saw how you stirred up the troops yesterday when you put this article out. Rob rules!

Why the hell are people comparing Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner? Except for Taylor´s abs is he far way down against Rob. Abs can be acquired, but face and height remain. By doing training and body building, which i guess Rob will soon be doing, he can also acquire these abs. Taylor is small and has an ordinary face, Robert has a remarkable face and an interesting personality, and very talented. About their Hollywood career success, who can forsee the future? But let´s try to look at their present achievements…”Remember Me” was a success grossing over $ 58 million which costed only $16 million, primarily because of Pattinson. And i´ve heard the DVD sales worldwide are doing great. “Valentine´s Day” with so many famous stars starring on it, including Lautner, was not really a hit worldwide. All i can say is, as long as Rob has his true fans and, gonna do roles suited to him…he can not be easily beaten with just a Taylor Lautner.

sorry but valentine’s was a HUGE hit, it took in $110 million just in AMERICA. and over $210 million worldwide. so thats pretty much 4x as much as ‘remember me’ took in. you’re gonna have to find another way to bash Taylor, cos you’ve got a serious problem with math.

& I am a 16 year old girl, who thinks that Rob is much hotter and he is beautiful. I have nothing against Taylor, but let’s face it, he can’t beat Rob, like I said, Rob is beautiful and hot, plus an amazing actor.
