Taylor Lautner's chiseled 8-pack abs have won over FitSugar readers in their fittest male celeb of 2009 poll. He left his competition Ryan Renolds in the dust, who takes second place with only 20% of the votes and Taylor with 47%!
Who were Taylor's noteworthy competitors? Twilight co-star Kellan Lutz barely stands a chance against him at 9% and poor Zac Efron only has 2%. Way to go Taylor!
Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift (Taylor Squared) share the cover of Teen Tribute magazine! Their budding romance is featured in its winter 2009/2010 issue.
It seems the genre of their next film, Valentine's Day, has sparked more than a few flames between these two stars. While working on the film this summer, Swift and Lautner became fast friends, which eventually turned into a hot crush!
Swift, 19 [who just turned 20 this month], and Lautner, 17, have not made their budding romance official, but they have been spotted around having cozy dinner dates and kissing at a sporting event.
What what what?! Kissing at a sporting event? We've seen pictures of them at a hockey game, but I have never heard anything about the kissing part. They do make out in Valentine's Day, but that's about it. Maybe they're getting confused with Robsten... This is exactly how false rumors get started!!!
Taylor Lautner and his dad Dan have joined forces to create Tailor Made Entertainment, which will be developing film and television vehicles for the 17-year-old heartthrob. "Cancun" will be the first movie produced by Tailor Made.
Billed by Variety as a "teenaged 'Taken' meets 'Die Hard,'" the flick centers around Taylor's college student character, who while on spring break in Cancun, must rescue his kidnapped friends from a drug cartel leader. The flick will give the former extreme martial arts champ the opportunity to show of his fighting skills.
This description of "Cancun" makes the movie sound much more interesting to me. We shall see... What do you think?
Taylor Lautner is going to be a busy man in 2010! He has yet another potential project to add to his resume—Vision Quest. He is in talks to star in an updated version of this 1985 drama. According to E! News,
[Taylor] could wind up playing an updated version of [Matthew] Modine's character in the still-in-development film, which counts Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment (and Twilight and New Moon fame) as producers. We hear that Richard Munic has penned a screenplay that is "very faithful" to the original Vision Quest.
"Taylor saw [the script] and is really excited about it," says a source. "It's very much in line with his athleticism. His character is someone who's striving for greatness."
Taylor is currently in contract negotiations with Summit Entertainment to reprise his role as Jacob Black in "Breaking Dawn," the fourth book in the Twilight Saga. He is also confirmed to portray teenage superhero Max Steel in an upcoming Paramount production and star in "Cancun," an action flick about vacationers held hostage by a drug cartel.
Taylor Lautner will be teaming up with Summit Entertainment, the producers of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," in a new action flick called "Cancun."
This film is the tale of vacationers held hostage by a drug cartel; Lautner’s character fights to rescue them using his martial skills. This will be the first project from the newly established production shingle he shares with his dad, Dan Lautner.
I'm not sure what to think of this film. Do you think the movie has the potential to be a hit?
A "Saturday Night Live" skit based on the University of Oregon Duck football team did not leave Oregonians laughing. Taylor Lautner played the role of a made-up, Ducks backup Quarterback, Phil Pomeroy, who could not smile correctly for the camera.
According to their local news station KATU, the skit didn't tickle a funny bone.
"It wasn't funny regardless," said Duck T.J. Ward. "I'm waiting for the punch line or a joke or something. It was a little too silly for me."
No offense to any Oregonians, but they need to lighten up. Taylor is the perfect example of someone who doesn't take himself so seriously. For goodness sake, he portrayed Mikash, a foreign student who danced like Micheal Jackson, rapped and said he was gay. He then wore a mini skirt, played a girl who was on Team Edward, and kissed Robert Pattinson's picture. C'mon! Silly is funny!
