Twilight’s Taylor Lautner Describes The ‘Absolute Nightmare’ Of Getting Into Jacob Shape And Maintaining It For The Movies


Jumping on the hype of Stephenie Meyer’s beloved novels, the Twilight movie franchise became an absolute sensation upon arriving in theaters in 2008. The trio of leading actors became megastars in the process: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Launter. The latter actor beame a sex symbol in the process, thanks to his innumerable shirtless scenes. Lautner recently described the “absolute nightmare” of getting into Jacob shape (and maintaining it for the movies).

Taylor Lautner appeared in every installment of the Twilight film franchise, but his role (and his body) got much bigger starting with New Moon. While this helped to sell movie tickets and make Lautner a huge star, this physical transformation wasn’t without sacrifice for the young actor. As he recently explained during a conversation with Yahoo!:

For this little role that I did starting when I was 16, I was 140 pounds and I had to put on 35 pounds of muscle to keep my role. That was an absolute nightmare in the diet compartment — raw sweet potatoes and turkey patties and protein shakes that were essentially just mud. That was rough. I had to consume at least 5,000 calories a day to maintain the weight that I was at.
