Before vs. after…YOU WON’T LIKE HIM WHEN HE’S ANGRY.
Evey damn gossip and/or movie blog I go on ever single day seems to have some new shirtless picture of Taylor Lautner on the set of New Moon, looking like he was just unwrapped from plastic action figure packaging. So I decided to search just what the hell he looked like before he bulked up and WHOA. He’s most definitely earned a retroactive spot on our “significant body transformations for movies” post.
Why do I respect him now? Well, it’s one thing for an established actor to gain and lose weight to earn a massive paycheck, but this kid was no one before Twilight, and he realized that he was going to bust his ass to keep his role was which threatened to be given away to someone already jacked and slightly Native-American looking (Chronicles of Narnia‘s Ben Barnes).
So what did he do? He went to town, and started inhaling calories like air and lifted at the gym for hours sometimes seven days a week. As you can see, the results paid off. As someone similarly skinny, knowing how hard it is to gain weight, I understand that putting on thirty pounds of muscle for a scrawny person is like losing 100 for an obese person.
If this comes off as slightly gay, **** you, I just think it’s nice to see someone in young Hollywood with an actual work ethic. Contrast that with his co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart who phone in their parts so hard you can almost hear a busy signal.
