Taylor Lautner is desperately trying to gain weight to convince Twilight producers he should return in the sequel, New Moon, as Jacob Black. He revealed to MTV, ‘I have been working out. I’ve been working out since the day we finished filming Twilight. I just weighed myself today; I’ve put on 19 lbs.’
Taylor revealed that he’s meeting this week with director Chris Weitz to make his case. ‘I’m guaranteeing Weitz 10 more [pounds] by filming.’ Costar Ashley Green added:
‘We all love Taylor. He’s such a sweet guy, so sweet and I think that he gets the part. And the thing is that the girls just love him. He is the teen heartthrob. I’m hoping that they don’t replace him because we love him.’ Photo: Fame.
