Taylor Lautner goes to dinner with a couple gay guys and has to prove his heterosexuality.
In a new interview with Australia's GQ magazine, The Twilight werewolf hunk discussed grabbing dinner with openly gay "Milk" director Gus Van Sant and "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and says there's nothing gay about three men talking business over dinner.
"It's not a coincidence that there was a writer, a director and an actor at dinner," says Lautner. It's just three Hollywood types getting dinner. Nothing to see here.
When the QG writer asked if any of the men hit on him (which is the dumbest and also low-key homophobic thing to ask) Taylor responds, "No, definitely not. I think they know I'm straight."
You know you've made it when you have to have it in writing that you're straight. Look, I'm eating a Chipotle burrito and talking about sports. Look how straight I am. This isn't a v-neck! Says an imaginary Taylor Lautner.
Lautner also adds that Van Sant and Lance Black are "great guys. They're a lot of fun."
Taylor Lautner is too good to be true! Those abs, that bone structure, and he's straight! Oh wait, he's 19. See I knew there was a caveat.
Taylor Lautner is the only member of the Twilight franchise that truly appreciates his fame. While his co-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Lautner come across as angry entitled homeless people who are both famous for scowling professionally and who regularly complain about having too many fans, Taylor stays humble about "dealing with" all the fame.
"I wouldn't say I get upset about it. I asked for this. It gets frustrating. But during that frustration you say, 'OK. Why am I frustrated? I'm doing what I love.' But sometimes you really just want to go do whatever you want to do," Taylor tells GQ.
Like I said, K-Stew and R-Patz tend to be incredibly overwhelmed by all the fame and avoid many high profile venues. Taylor has the opposite opinion when going out to meet fans.
"It comes down to what kind of mood you're in. You have to make a decision before you go out: are you willing to sign autographs and take pictures, say hello and meet new people?"
Taylor appears on the pages of the GQ photoshoot looking like he could work as an extra on the set of "Mad Men." If there are any women out there with a thing for both movie werewolves AND Don Draper, you are going to die when you see Lautner's photoshoot.
However, there's a chance Lautner never would have become famous if his parents didn't move him out to California to become a star.
"If me and my family had known how competitive this business was, I don't think we ever would have given it a shot. We came out here green, not knowing anything."
Imagine a world without Taylor Lautner!? What poster would hang above your bed at night!?!
