This is one news item that may have just pushed this star right back into the limelight, we all remember his as lean and ripped but now people cannot help but call Taylor Lautner fat. Yes, you heard us right, who would have ever thought that the words ‘Taylor Lautner’ and ‘Fat’ would be used in the same sentence. We bet that even he did not see that one coming.
Anyway, we are not here to body shame today, the extra pounds did not disfigure the star, he still looks as hot as ever. Today we are simply going to check out some facts about the star’s body and figure out why people are calling Taylor Lautner fat.
Taylor Lautner Fat: Here Are The Facts
You cannot talk about Taylor Lautner’s body or the fact that people consider Taylor Lautner fat without remembering where he came from. Before his role in the Twilight Saga, he was just another really pretty boy teenage actor.
Apparently, the then-teenager had to bulk up in order to save his part in the Twilight saga, He told MTV that he cut junk food from his diet and started hitting the gym four to five days a week after producers of the Twilight saga considered recasting his character “Jacob” in the franchise’s second film because his body was ‘meeehh’. He had to pack on 30 pounds of muscle to become the wolf boy/man that we saw in New Moon.
After that, so many people, guys, in particular, were trying their hands at getting ripped. After all, if a lanky fellow like Taylor Lautner could do it then anyone could do it. Fast forward to the present, in the last couple of years, the star has been seen sporting some extra pounds and it got some tongues wagging.
So what really happened to his ‘Jacob body’? Well, here is a brief explanation, we can all agree that Taylor was quite the lanky little fellow, in order to build the muscle mass that he needed, he had to eat… a lot. He could be comfortable eating everything and everything because he was confident that he would turn it into muscle mass later on.
Then the Twilight saga ended and the acting jobs were not flying in as much as they should have. So, we guess that must have triggered some level of nonchalance. Basically, the fat that had eventually turned into muscle stayed fat. You have to give it to him though, calling Taylor Lautner fat, is as senseless as complimenting a Buddhist monk on his luscious curls.
The actor is just slightly bigger than how you remember him. He is actually in better shape now, with a new show and a new girlfriend in the picture, you bet he is keeping in shape. So for those of you wondering if how the couple met, they have the horror-comedy series, Scream Queens, to thank for bringing them together.
The couple seemed all cozied up long before they officially came out as a couple, but the signs were there. From the cute selfies together to the support he gave her when her mom and grandmom passed away, Taylor was spreading the love.
More recently, Taylor swooped her away on a vacation and the Instagram selfies they took are proof that the two had a marvelous time. What can we say, Billie is one lucky lady… and if you hope to see more of her onscreen, watch out for her in the 7th season of American Horror Story.
