Everyone feels insecure about their body at some point -- even celebrity vampires. In an interview with Mexican magazine 15a20, Robert Pattinson confesses that his Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner (and his abs of steel) made him feel completely insecure about his own body while filming the franchise. Lautner reportedly works out two-and-a-half hours every day and is widely known for his muscular appearance, so Pattinson decided it was time his character beefed up for his role in Breaking Dawn: Part 1.
So why care so much about how his body looks after making three Twilight movies? It seemed to have less to do with an ego boost and more to do with a certain sensual scene. The British heartthrob says he trained for six months to bulk up his body for the infamous sex scene with his real life girlfriend, Kristen Stewart. The actor explains, ""You also have to worry about how you're going to look. I had never been so worried about that before, but after seeing how much Taylor works out for the movies, I thought, 'Well, everybody is really going to judge me now.' I always tried to think about positions where I could tense the muscles, and suck in my belly.""
The Twilight star continued his exercise regime for Breaking Dawn: Part 2 as well because ""the body of the characters seem to be a big deal,"" throughout the series. He further reasoned his workout obsession, stating, ""In this movie, I thought, 'OK, it's the last one, I'm getting a six pack,' and I tried, but it's very hard. I worked out so hard for six months, so after filming the sex scene, the first thing I thought was, 'Time to eat!'"" Not that anyone was really complaining about his physique to begin with, but this is something all girls (and some boys) could definitely sink their teeth into. If you weren't looking forward to the upcoming film before, you are now. A buff Lautner and an extra buff RPatz? Yes please!
