Taylor Lautner Named Breakout Star of 2009

It’s no surprise that a Twilight star tops the list of 2009’s Breakout Stars of the Year. AOL-owned Moviefone compiled a list of the hottest new actors to grace the silver screen this year, and Taylor Lautner is on top.

The New Moon star transformed himself physically to continue to play the role of Jacob after the first movie Twilight. He had to bulk up for the sequel in order to play the character of Jacob correctly. And boy did he ever!

The site say Taylor “redefines teenage hunk in his breakout role. There is a reason why Taylor beat out the rest of the notable names on this list for the top spot: sheer box office brawn.”
