    On the gay vibe: uh, yeah. The pose is very “Taylor, fondle Robert; Robert, grab Taylor’s ass!”

    On Kristen Stewart elsewhere: she is the most sullen “romantic lead” ever. No wonder Sad Sack gets her own cover…this one appeals to the cougars, the gays, and the young girls. It’s a fairly smart marketing strategy.

    I don’t get a gay vibe from this AT ALL. This is sooner a reflection of how disposable the character of Bella is in the Twilight series. They know all the tween girls will pick up the cover with the guys, they probably printed only a dozen copies of the Bella cover.

    Maybe there’s a gay vibe. I mean, what’s a gay vibe? Two attractive guys smiling and laughing together? I don’t see this photo as more emblematic of a gay couple or gay friends than two friends, gay or straight. And maybe before we jump to the “everything’s gay” conclusion, why don’t we consider the more realistic reason: money. These are two of the biggest stars in the world right now. And EW is read primarily by women (and probably some gay men). It makes good marketing sense to ditch that drag Kristen Stewart in favor of the attractive male stars. I’d get a gay vibe if that image were paired with something like “The Twilight boys tell all!” It’s not all gay, all the time (sadly).

    Any photograph containing two young, pretty, styled-to-the-nines guys in a gay (i.e. mirthful) moment will set off “gay vibe” bells for any homosexual with a pulse. Doesn’t mean anything w/r/t the subjects themselves.

    Sweety, you need to take your gaydar in for a checkup, because something is seriously broken. It’s kind of like using a metal detector looking for gold. After digging the backyard up, the best you find is a bottle cap.

    Sorry, I ain’t feeling it.

    Entertainment Weekly’s managing editor Jess Cagle is gayer than an Easter bonnet full of rainbow-colored unicorns. And he’s a bigger Twilight fan than the crazy cat ladies who moist their panties over these covers.

    So yeh, I’d say it’s intentional.

    The ‘gay vibe’ is a result of the skin of the two actors overlapping due to the angle of the camera. Normally if you have two actors on the cover of a magazine, its facing front, not at a profile.

    Shocker! Taylor Lautner is gay and while filming in Vancouver, BC, he made the mistake of posting an ad on Craigs list… He likes little asian boys.

    If a lack of stylists, editors or handlers making sure something about the picture *isn’t* gay makes it feel gay, then I suppose, but honestly, when I read the “gay vibe” observation I thought … mmmm… no, not really, bit of a stretch, that.

    Admittedly, I’ve never seen any of the Twilight movies, nor do I plan to, but, beyond that, what is the appeal of either of these men? Neither of them are particularly attractive.

    TRoad, are you asking? Or are you wishing?

    This is the sort of embarrassing, juvenile opinion that is so destructively prevalent in gay media.

    ever hear of “Starsky and Hutch” or “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid”, how about “The Lone Ranger and Tonto” ….

    You know two men can be together, even besties, with a romantic love (Victorian era meaning), and not be gay.

    I don’t think it’s about wishful thinking. I logged into EW today and that picture was the main story image. I immediately thought WOW, that looks like a picture advertising gay.com. I didn’t need this headline to suggest it. The angle of the camera may be deceiving, but they appear to be an inch or two from touching cheekbones. Maybe they weren’t, but it LOOKS like they are, so Towleroad and those of us who had the same reaction can be forgiven for seeing that. It’s not like anyone is trying to say it’s evidence that the actors are gay or something.

    because they are both so pretty, i will go with this conceit. taylor, though younger, is the top. he makes r-pat call his name when they’re going at it. that’s what a werewolf would do. a vampire is kinda laid back and listless: “you wanna fuck me? ok. just let me suck you for a bit, first.”

  15. Jules says

    @ Walter: >Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid”<

    Actually, unless I’m misremembering, there are schools of historical thought that are pretty sure Butch and Sundance were lovers, so not the best example, that. 😉

    @TRoad: I think the word you’re looking for is not ‘gay vibe’ but ‘slash goggles’. *grins*

    @DannyWalker17: Thanks for pointing out to all the over-reactors that it’s not like saying, “Mm, that sets my Spidey senses tingling” is not saying, “Hey, these dudes are gay.”

    Love that you posted this, Andy. It has a little to do with Pattinson’s lovestruck smile, but it’s mainly the angle and what they chose to crop out that makes this look like a photo of a couple. They’ve been so heavily photographed over the last couple years that it was clearly EW’s goal to shoot them in a previously unseen way, as a couple. It’s not an accident that we’re debating the gay vibes.

  17. Mark Hutchinsonn says

    Well with Taylor on the cover how can you not get a Gay Vibe..he would do well to just come out now and get it over with – no one will care if he does it between movies.

  18. PATTY says

    ROB IS STRAIGHT, BUT THAT TAYLOR IS A DIVA IN THE MAKING! TAYLOR IS TRYING TOO HARD TO BE MASCULINE, IT’S A DEAD GIVE-AWAY THAT HE’S IMITATING WHAT HER REALLY WANTS IN HIS BED. THIS IS COMING FROM A WOMAN, A SMART WOMAN WHO HAS SEEN WAY TOO MANY BRAD PITTS AND TOM CRUISES COME OUT OF THE CLOSET AFTER THE SPOTLIGHT DISAPPEARED. WISHFUL THINKING, NOT !!!! US GALS ARE INTO MEN, NOT PRETTY VIXENS.

    Cant believe the infatuation these 2 homophobes get from our community.Its appalling to say the least both of them have made anti gay comments and Taylor also mocked gay people in a YT video a few years back I saw it .He even walked around pretending to have a lisp walking away all girly like .Its obvious he was mocking us no surprise.Robert said some comments about being uncomfortable during his kissing scenes something about he didnt like it.Any straight male who is comfortable in their own skin wouldnt care either way…he did.That should say something.Ashton Kutcher called Robert a gay vampire recently as well another idiot to add to the list.
