Lautner

If you were wondering where Taylor Lautner’s abs had run off to after his Twilight wolf-boy days, you'll be delighted to know that the 22-year-old’s abdomen is currently starring in season two of the BBC 3’s comedy series Cuckoo.

Lautner_2Lautner will play the son of Cuckoo, a deceased “self-appointed spiritual ninja” portrayed by former Saturday Night Live comedian Andy Samberg. Cuckoo is “a slacker full of outlandish, New Age ideas” who married into a conservative British family, and from the looks of the trailer below Lautner will continue his father’s brand of spiritual nuttiness.

He might also seduce the family's daughter and show a little skin in the process too.

In his appearance with Taylor Lautner on Ellen, Robert Pattinson discussed the possibility of more Twilight films, floating an idea about how they can keep the franchise fresh:

Taylor Lautner 'People' Magazine Coming Out Story is a Fake

Tlautner_gay

A mock-up of a forthcoming People magazine cover on which Twilight star Taylor Lautner announces he's "Out & Proud" is a fake, a People rep tells Gossip Cop:

A rep for the magazine confirms to Gossip Cop exclusively that it’s “absolutely fake.”

The fraudulent issue, which reads, "Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finaly come out. 'I'm more liberated, and happier than I've ever been'", borrows its Brad Pitt/Carnie Wilson sidebar from a May 2006 People cover, according to GS.

The cover fooled many, however, including hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons:

Producer Russell Simmons was fooled by the the fake, tweeting, "proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage." He later responded to being duped, saying, " Disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be..."


Taylor Lautner to Produce and Star in Gus van Sant Film Based on Article in 'The New Yorker'

Taylor Lautner is going to be producing and starring in an indie film directed by Gus van Sant, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

Gusvansant"Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Lautner is finalizing a deal to team with auteur director Gus Van Sant (Milk, Drugstore Cowboy) on a small-budget film based on a nonfiction article in The New Yorker magazine that Lautner has optioned. Details are still emerging about the project, but sources say an announcement is expected later this week revealing who is write the script for the Van Sant-helmed film. The aim is to shoot the film in the first quarter of next year."

I'd put money on that script being written by Dustin Lance Black.

The paper adds: "The new project would almost certainly take Lautner’s career in a new direction. He is said to be determined to work only with top directors and writers from now on as he strives to define himself as an actor."


'GQ Australia' Apologizes for Suggesting Gays are Sexual Predators Who Can't Resist Hitting on Taylor Lautner

GQ Australia has apologized for an article they published about Taylor Lautner in which it explored rumors that he is gay, and asked whether director Gus Van Sant or screenwriter Dustin Lance Black hit on him at a recent business dinner.

LautnerFrom the article:

"No, definitely not," Hollywood's highest paid teen said when asked whether either Van Sant or Black made a pass. "I think they know I'm straight. But they're great guys. They're a lot of fun." Adding rather blandly: "It's not a coincidence that there was a writer, a director and an actor at dinner."

Black ripped GQ over the article:

Really Mr. GQ writer? I’m curious, will you be asking all of the handsome actors I’ve ever had the privilege of working with or meeting if I made passes at them as well? I’d love to be there when you ask Sean Penn that same question. Or, Mr. GQ writer, were you projecting your own unprofessional desires onto me and Gus? Perhaps? Or worse still, are you a homophobe? Above and beyond this clear attack on my character, I’m shocked that GQ would allow their writer to lean on the scurrilous, outdated stereotype that gay men are by nature sexual predators. I mean, would you have asked this same question if it were Diablo Cody and Kathryn Bigelow at dinner with Mr. Lautner? Leaning on lies, myths and stereotypes about gay people is hateful, harmful and outdated. It’s not the 1950s anymore GQ, it’s 2011 and it’s time to grow up.

GQ Australia has responded on its Facebook page:

Hi guys,

We’ve seen some of the comments floating around regarding our recent interview with Taylor Lautner and apologise if anyone was offended by anything in the article. It certainly wasn’t our intention to paint anyone in the story as a sexual predator. The point we were actually trying to push was that Taylor is irresistible to virtually everyone – regardless of sexuality or gender. Hence the film crew cheering at his shirtless scenes while shooting Twilight, and Mark Wahlberg deeming him better looking than Leonardo Di Caprio.

Taylor is an extraordinary young gentleman, and we can’t wait to see him achieve even greater success in the future. That’s why he’s on our cover – because GQ Australia prides itself on offering readers the best possible advice and insights that help you be modern, successful gentlemen. Whether you’re into fashion, food, fitness, pop culture, politics, travel, technology or cars GQ Australia strives to provide you with top-quality editorial content that allows you to make your own discerning choices.
