Swoon! Taylor shows off his unbelievable body and talks about why ‘Valentine’s Day’ fans missed out on seeing him shirtless!
We have all seen Taylor Lautner shirtless by this point, but never as sexy as in his new spread in the July issue of GQ! The down to earth actor sat down with the mag — at an Olive Garden — to talk about hitting the gym, how Kristen Stewart saved him from passing out, and why he won’t take off his shirt in just any movie!
Taylor admits that presenting at this year’s Oscars was a thrill, but says he would have passed out if costar Kristen wasn’t with him! “I would have passed out if she wasn’t there!” he says. “You’re looking down and you’re talking to George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio—and they’re listening to you!”
It turns out the script for Valentine’s Day had Taylor flashing his abs onscreen, but the actor asked that it be cut from the script! “Originally I was supposed to take off my shirt. The script [of Valentine’s Day] said we were walking into school and Willy takes off his shirt. I said, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa. Time out. He’s gonna take off his shirt in the middle of school? No, no, no. The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it’s written in the book that way. And there’s reasons behind it,” the actor says. Sorry disappointed movie goers!
As for having to audition again for the role of Jacob in New Moon the actor said, “I’m in the gym, and I’m doing reps, and I’m reading the books, and I’m studying the character. I’m just saying to myself, ‘I want this role. I love this role. I’m not gonna lose it. And I’m gonna know it better than anybody, and I’m gonna do that extra rep, because I’m gonna be Jacob Black.’ ” Thank god he did!
