Taylor Lautner seems to be the buzz word these days. Born February 11, 1992 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the 17 year old star attracts attention where he roams. Taylor is a martial artist, winning awards since he was seven years old. During that same period, his karate instructor encouraged him to pursue an audition for a Burger King advertisement. It was then he was excited about becoming an actor.
He enjoys working out at the gym and loves football. Maybe this explains why he made #1 in Access Hollywood's "Top Five Hollywood Abs". Although he has played several shirtless roles, it appears the successful young muscled actor may want to change direction. MTV quoted Aceshowbiz.com when asking Taylor about packing on 30 lbs. of muscle. "But I don't want to become known as just a body." He added: "If I had to choose, I would never take my shirt off again in a movie, but I guess that's not very realistic. I certainly won't be asking to do it, though."
Two-time the Taylors, Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were seen together Sunday attending a hockey game in Los Angeles, California after getting picked up at LAX by Ms. Swift and her driver. Later in the evening the two attractive stars were seen together at a Beverly Hills Hotel lobby, looking great together. Swift has her Fearless tour coming up while Lautner is filming Eclipse, the 3rd film in the Twilight saga.The pair first began their close relationship in July while filming a kissing scene for next year's ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day. Earlier this month, Lautner was a surprise guest at Swift's tour concert in Chicago. As she left the stage, she gave the bulked-up actor an extended embrace.(Photo: Getty Images)
News of the two dating really cooked up the stories when the two Taylors kissed in scenes for the soon to be released Valentine's Day movie. However, the two want to take their relationship together slowly according to sources.
Taylor packed on more muscle for his new Twilight series film and the most recent question, for some, has been, when in April 2008, Miley Cyrus, then 15 years old, appeared in "Vanity Fair" wrapped in a sheet, with her right shoulder and the top of her back visible, implying that, under the sheet, she wasn't wearing a shirt, she was asked to apologize, but when Taylor appears shirtless, he is swooned by fans? The other question, does Hollywood have a double standard? What are your views in this regard?
