'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and beyond this clear attack on my character, I’m shocked that GQ would allow their writer to lean on the scurrilous, outdated stereotype that gay men are by nature sexual predators.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 Leaning on lies, myths and stereotypes about gay people is hateful, harmful and outdated.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.


Taylor Lautner: 'Definitely Not' Gay

GQ Australia asks Taylor Lautner about his sexuality:

Taylor-lautner-gq-australia-1011-3"[My publicist] Liz [Mahoney] says I don't talk about my personal life," he told the magazine when asked about a rumoured split from his Abduction costar Lily Collins.

Undeterred, GQ turned their attention to the rumour that the owner of People's fourth ‘most amazing body' prefers Team Edward to Team Women -- a rumour that began when Lautner was spotted dining with gay Hollywood magnates Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black.

"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."

Mark Wahlberg Warns Leonardo DiCaprio About Taylor Lautner's Bod, Good Looks

Mark Wahlberg is feeling his age:

2_lautner "I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me," Wahlberg said to DiCaprio earlier today at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's annual luncheon at the Beverly Hills Hotel. "So, we're both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We're screwed."

"It's over, dude," Wahlberg continued as the room burst into laughter. "Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next."

Lautner told E!'s Marc Malkin:

"I don't even know the word to describe being here," the Twilight star exclusively told me. "It's so odd. It's such an honor. I'm up on the stage and talking in front of people like that? The people that I looked up to my entire life? Hearing words like that from Mark and everybody it's just really surreal."
