Chris steals totally steals Taylor Lautner’s ‘best abs’ title, don’t you agree? Vote for the guy YOU think looks best undressed!

Taylor Lautner has some major competition coming his way. Chris Riggi, 24, plays Jacob White, a parody of Taylor’s Twilight character Jacob Black, in the new parody Vampires Suck – and he’s putting the Eclipse star’s highly prized abs to shame! HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on how Chris prepared for his hot new role.

“I chose the role that Twilight fans are either going to be hating or loving,” Chris tells us. “I don’t think anyone’s going to throw stones on the street at me or anything for it.” (They definitely WON’T when they see how hot Chris is!)

Chris admits he chose this role knowing his abs would be compared to Taylor’s. “His abs are amazing and way better than mine,” he says, though we have to disagree!

Maybe that’s what motivated Chris to hit the gym so much. He went “sometimes three times a day,” he tells us. “I’d wake up and run for a few miles. I’d go eat and then go back to the gym for weightlifting, then run again at night just trying to get really thin. Abs are what’s important.”

Chris also had to maintain a very specific diet to get Taylor’s hot bod.”I had to gain 15 pounds of muscle for this role,” he says. “It was like five, sometimes six meals a day full of protein. It had to be grilled, not too much salt, and then it would be like a a sweet potato instead of bread. No bread for two months.” This intense fitness plan lasted for 3 months.

And it’s not just Chris’s abs that have people comparing him to Taylorl; Chris has been mistaken for Taylor more than once! “This woman cam up to me and asked, ‘Are you Taylor Lautner?’” Chris recalls. “She was like 45!”

And just like Taylor, Chris loves martial arts, telling us: “I’ve been doing martial arts since I was very young.”

Once he got Taylor’s body down, Chris had only one other task to complete before he could play the perfect Jacob White — he had to master Taylor’s every move! “I watched the movies over and over again every day for three months,” Chris says. “I had a picture of Taylor in my trailer so I could mimic his facial expressions!”

I think Chris’s plan worked — he’s so much hotter than Taylor will ever be! Just take a look at the super hot photos above and tell me if you agree. And, of course, check out Vampires Suck when it hits theaters Aug. 18!

Chris does look a bit better in the face, but his body just isn’t at Taylor’s level. If you’re going to post pics to compare them, post the real ones where you didn’t blur out Taylor’s abs. That was a poor edit job on your part as well as showing everyone just how lacking you are in character.

I say both are hot and attractive. They are both very talented young men and deserve better than getting compared. They are both different and have different talents, but very gifted. So tgey should just be respected for they are both sexy.
